Akiko Nagashima, artist at Capcom had this to say about the 2D genre:
"Recently, it seems like side-scrolling action games and shooters are in short supply. Maybe it's because of this that there doesn't seem to be very many high-precision-, skill-, and timing-based games on the market any more."
It's true that side-scrolling games are in short supply, but that doesn't mean that we at the Fanboy don't love them. In fact, every new video update provided by the team at Capcom has had us craving for more and more. Gamespot has been kind enough to show us titilating new footage from the second level of the game, and unsurprisingly, it seems even more difficult than the already-insane first level. Bring it on!
