New Oni Previews

With all of the turmoil surrounding Bungie lately, it's good to see some "regular" news back on the radar. A couple of sites have posted new previews of Oni (or should we say Take-Two's Oni now?).
3DActionPlanet's look at the famous 'Full Contact Action' game is a worthwhile read, even though it seems to be based on action shown at this year's E3. Here's a quick clip:
Konoko is also skilled at shooting. And unlike most beat'em ups, guns aren't there as rare powerups with incredibly limited ammo. The E3 demonstration showed a number of different weapons, including an uzi, and energy grenade, and a plasma gun. The latter was the most impressive, with great looking visuals. There will be a good spread of projectile and energy weapons to choose from, plus Konoko's always got her feet to deliver a swift kick if she feels like adding insult to injury.GameSurge has also taken a quick look at Oni. While it's not a long, it is still a worthy read. Neither of these previews reveals much that hasn't been known for some time, which either indicates that the Oni team has picked a specific goal and worked toward it, or that there was some stagnation in its development path.
Oni is set to be released for the Playstation 2 this October during Sony's North American debut of the console. Mac and PC versions should be completed around the same time, and published by Gathering of Developers (see related story.)
