First of all, Mighty No. 9 got delayed again. It will not make its Feb 9th launch, and will appear in "spring 2016," whatever that means. Anyone hoping Inafune will finish his next game anywhere near on time should rethink that whole thing.
Second, Vita bancho brawler Uppers finally got a trailer today. Prior to this, all we'd seen were stills of devastatingly handsome, well-muscled young thugs gettin' in brawls and motorboting nearby adoring ladies - which is what you can reasonably expect from a game directed by the creator of Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble and produced by the creator of Senran Kagura. But in trailer form...
Well, here's the problem. In trailer form, it is both as awesome as you hope and as insanely uncomfortable as you'd imagine.
Throwing a motorcycle at a dude? Awesome. Taking a facedive into a girl's crotch? What the fuck, Japan? Uppercutting a guy into an overhead helicopter with such force that the chopper crashes and explodes? Super awesome. A minigame in which you're expected to snap shots of girls panties at the moment their skirt moves to the optimum position? Fuck off, Japan.
