I actually thought of games a bit smaller than either of those - almost somewhere between Chaos Legion on PS2 and Malicious on PS3, but maybe those games are also just so heavily influenced by DmC and the like that the distinction isn't relevant. Either way, it looks tight imo!

The name change is easy to be cynical about (rightly, I think), but I think it's plausible that moving the game on to next gen hardware was just the right call anyway.

Gawd, I'd completely forgotten about Chaos Legion. Funny how some games you'll play and then totally forget about. mind you I don't think I got very far with it, seem to remember it being quite hard.

Anyway, after a quick refresher on Youtube, yes, there are similarities - the heavier RPG elements definitely seem like they would be more of a fit for the FF brand. But as you say, really, it's drawing inspiration from all those sources - I think it was just the running up buildings bit and the wielding of the insanely huge sword that reminded me of DMC, although in fairness those things are also pretty omnipresent in tonnes of Japanese games and anime.

Shouldn't they have called the new one "Lightning Strikes"?

Why do they all have red soles on their shoes?
