I will not jump on the character design-hating bandwagon, I think they're pretty daring, and awesome.

How many games have an amazon character that is that unapologetically powerful-looking?

DAMN there is already a lot of hate it or love it type of mentality for this game. Me personally? I love this idea and artstyle! Its so weird because I was thinking the other day, how great it would be to revive king of dragons! I know this has no affiliation with KoD OR Capcom but its the same style of gameplay and the red dragon room looks ALOT like the red dragon room from KoD.

Its ok though because this is the image that we think of when we hear red dragon. Dragons collect gold and their lairs are filled with it. Im super stoked to play this game because I grew up with these kinds of games! King of Dragons, King Arthur, Dungeons and Dragons - Shadow over Mystara/Tower of Doom, Gauntlet series. Cant wait!

Oh don't get me wrong... I love the art style, just don't like a few of the PC designs.

God that screenshot is GORGEOUS

I like how "Elf" and "Dwarf" are classes, lol. Always wanted to control Bridgette Neilson in a dungeon crawler...

Seriously though, it looks gorgeous and im always down for some dungeon crawling hack n' slash.

Having more than one player in a sidescroller beat`em up is not exactly unheard of. Games of this genre have been like this since forever. And it`s not like it`s co-op only, so I don`t see the problem.

Then why is this in the RPG section and not Misc. games, if it's not an RPG?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Because it's both.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic but I do like this.  It adds to the whole old-school fantasy vibe.  After all, that is how things were in 1st edition.

The game that inspired this one (and which Kamitani worked on) also had "Elf" and "Dwarf" as classes.

Well, this guarantees a better translation than Muramasa at least.

I'm just glad we finally got some news, I was pretty worried when I saw it taken off our pre-orders list at work. D:

I could shout righteous indignation at the odd proportions of the character designs, especially that of the near-naked Amazon, but I'll admit, I checked out the witch's behind a little longer than I should have. 

As long as the gameplay is better balanced than the character designs' body proportions, we're good.  The unbalanced nature of Odin Sphere got to me.  Cornelius's final chapter in Odin Sphere was stupidly unbalanced. 
Games I've given Editor's Choice to:
Ever 17, Hourglass of Summer, Anachronox, Persona PSP, Radiant Historia, To The Moon, Revolution 60

The Amazon is a bit much, the witch is obviously designed to be ridiculous as well, and the guys are way more proportional -- so the designs aren't exactly my favorite either.  But I think it'll be all about the end product.  I can't wait for a side scroll beat-em'-up... It's been WAY too long (I'm already anticipating it as something I'll spend a lot of hours playing co-op).
