Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm a must-see for SNK Fighting Game Fans!

There’s currently a campaign on Indiegogo to help fund the Western release of a game made by a bunch of the people who worked on the King of Fighters series. The game is called Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm and it looks amazing. Visually it looks more akin to Samurai Showdown than KoF. The gameplay goes without saying, but the music is also pretty awesome. I’m really excited about this game and I’m hoping the crowd funding succeeds. The only grip I have is that you need to put in $60 minimum for the game and the digital artbook. Since it’s a digital artbook you think they could lower the price. Right now they goal is $68,000 and they’re at $51,132 with 9 days to go. I hope they meet that goal, and if we’re lucky they can exceed that goal and start talking about console release for this game (currently they’re talking about releasing it on the PC). If you’re a fighting game fanatic, checking out this game is a must! You can find out more about the game at their Indiegogo page.

Summary:

Yui starts to reminisce about her time as a cadet in the Imperial Army. When she comes too she’s surrounded by BETAs and she apologizes to everyone and her father for not being able to carry out her mission. Yuuya suddenly appears and picks off all of the BETAs in the Hanger and saves Yui. He gives her some quick first aid as Stella keeps guard from a distant outside. After Yuuya finishes tending to Yui he informs her that they’ll be evacuating now, but before that Yui insists on self-destructing the Radiation Canon first. Meanwhile, Stell is noticing that a ridiculous amount of BETAs are heading for the hanger Yui and Yuuya are in.

Opinions:
So Yuuya comes in at the last minute to save Yui! More than anything I’m curious as to why the BETAs are headed to Yui and Yuuya’s area. It has to do with the Radiation Canon, but what kind of secret does the Radiation Canon have? Or could the reason be something else? That aside, Yui was being really dere this episode. Particularly where she calls for Yuuya when she collapses on the floor in the hangar. I’m hoping to see more of that next episode!

Sumamry:

With the BETAs invading the base, there’s a mass evacuation. During the evacuation notice, Yui and Ibrahim figure out that everything has been planned out by the USSR so that they would have to evacuate and leave the Radiation Canon behind when they evacuate; which would leave it vulnerable to being stolen by the USSR government. That being the case, Yui frantically travels to the hanger where the Radiation Canon sits in order to activate its self-destruct sequence.

Opinions:

Okay, so things are heating up with some sneaky strategies by the USSR. That’s a pretty crazy tactic they came up with, using their own base as a sacrifice in order to pick off the abandoned new weapons of other countries. It’s kind of a gambit in way since if the other countries decided not to test their best stuff then the sacrifice would be for naught not to mention that the BETA attack could’ve come sooner. In any case it seems like the big question this time is if Yui will be able to activate the self-destruct sequence or if she (along with the Radiation Canon) will be saved. Let’s face it, Yui’s a main heroine so she’s not going to die any time soon.

Summary:

After Yuuya’s performance in the last battle, he’s being hailed as a hero; though Yuuya doesn’t seem to see it that way and it doesn’t help that the USSR pilots patronize him on the matter. Yuuya is determined to prove his worth so he requests that the next test for the Shiranui be melee combat, but Yui is a little hesitant to do so. After some unforseen events, Yui decides that she’ll take the Shiranui into combat for melee testing. Yuuya is obviously upset about this, but after Heinemann persuades Yui to let Yuuya pilot. Afterwards as Yui walks out after Yuuya and the team deploy, the ground shakes. Yui realizes that the BETAS are attacking via underground.

Opinions:

There were a few things that were odd this week (though it’ll probably come into play in future episodes) such as Yui not wanting Yuuya to pilot in this battle and the insistence that it be Yuuya that pilots. At first I thought it was Yui being overprotective of Yuuya, but there definitely seems to more to it. The episode really ended on a cliffhanger and I’m really looking forward to the next episode!

Summary:

Yuuya debuts in his first battle against the BETAs and is mocked by the USSR pilots for his nervousness. Yuuya’s teammates try to calm him down, but it doesn’t seem to help. As it looks like the BETAs are about to completely wipe out the tank platoons, Yuuya calls for the Zhar Platoon to assist the tanks’ retreat but they seem to wait for orders to do so. Yuuya gets impatient and immedietely begs the commander of the Zhar Platoon to retreat so he can use the Radiation Canon to add their retreat. After some pleading, the commander obliges Yuuya’s request and upon the are being clear Yuuya fires the canon and completely decimates the BETAs in one shot; showing off the destructive power of the Radiation Canon.

Opinions:

Wow, I didn’t think Yuuya would be the type to get nervous when first confronting the enemy, but I guess it makes sense when it’s the first time you’re in an actual battle where you will kill and possibly be killed. I was interested when they showed Cryska fighting back against the USSR pilots that were bullying her and Inia the previous episode. The reason being that Cryska doesn’t seem to remember the event and her demeanor is  obviously different from before; which leads to believe that Cryska may suffer from some kind of multiple personality disorder. Other than that, it looks like as each episode passes Yui’s feelings for Yuuya become more apparent. Looking forward to more development!

Summary:

The team heads to Milkovsky in the USSR to test out the new Radiation Canon. Yuuya will be testing out the new canon in live combat in his first battle against the BETAs. Yui shows Yuuya the new canon shows some concern for him since it’ll be his first time in actual combat; though he tells her he’ll show her that he’ll be able to take care of himself and the new weapon. The USSR soldiers seem to have some grudge against test pilots and hassle Inia and Cryska until Yuuya comes along and defends them. The next day the mission briefing starts and the commander of the USSR ZHAR platoon pilots already has no expectations of the test pilots and tells them not to get in the way of her men.

Opinions:

Man, those USSR pilots really got on my nerves; though I’m unsure if it’s because they’re essentially kids or how they were messing with Inia and Cryska. I mean, the stuff they mention like hanging previous test pilots on the fence after having their way with them is super harsh considering these people are essentially on the same team as you. You can really hear the jealousy they have for test pilots because they feel it’s a safer job. But is that really the case? I mean with prototypes, the odds of accidents occurring and being injured or killed still exists doesn’t it? Arguably a solider’s job is tougher, but I feel that testers put up with enough risk for them to deserve some degree of respect. Am I alone in this opinion? Well other than that, this episode marks Yui coming out of her tsundere shell and actually voicing her concern about Yuuya’s welfare to his face. It looks like their relationship is steadily getting closer!
