Kamen Rider's latest character additions revealed

0

Recently, we were handed the latest list of characters that will be appearing in the upcoming Wii title Kamen Rider Dragon Knight. No, you won't get to play as Gackt, but I don't think that'll keep anyone from wanting to play it. Besides, how many other games give you the opportunity to pull of the patented Rider kick?

While I haven't had a chance to sit down with the game myself, the trailer seems to imply that the arcade mode will be fighting game with what appears to be a card-based battle system, and a separate mode seems to be included featuring Dynasty Warriors-style beat-em-up gameplay. I could be way off base with that Dynasty Warriors comparison though, but I really hope I'm not. I, for one, adore that game.

I guess I'm pretty pleased to see America finally get a Kamen Rider game, not to overlook the fact that the show it's based on is the first series, since Masked Rider back in 1995, that we're seeing Kamen Rider air on American television. Japan has been getting Kamen Rider games for some time now, so naturally I've been a bit jealous.

Kamen Rider Dragon Knight was originally scheduled to hit store in late December, but the title actually had its release date bumped up to November 17th, and will be released the same day as it's Nintendo DS counterpart--which, btw doesn't look so bad either. Check out the updated list of characters and the trailer after the jump.


Characters to be included:
Dragon Knight
Wing Knight
Torque
Incisor
Camo
Siren
Sting
Thrust
Spear
Axe
Wrath
Onyx
