I don't think this has been posted elsewhere here, sorry if it is. Anyway a little addenum to the earlier Suzuki discussion with Core magazine. http://www.coremagazine.com/news/3771.php3 "The stages will be far more complex and interactive this time. Depending upon how hard you hit your opponents, walls can collapse. Outside you can leave trails in the snow, and some stages will change altogether in realtime. Moreover the visuals will be presented differently through better use of the camera." "We're planning to take advantage of the Naomi2 to fully express characters. Not only are the costumes and backgrounds being refined, but the character models themselves. Everything from hair movement to the way muscles constrict and throb during battle." Still wondering whether the stages will be flat like in the video. Plus it looks like the stage design is drawing inspiration from Powerstone 2 and DOA2.
