It's actually July 20th according to the email I got when I applied for the beta.

Hmmm... not TOO sure about that music, "AAaaaaaaaaah" works well for parts of a lyric or chorus, but as the entire song? I don't think so... you never hear Disturbed making that "uuu-wha-wha-wha" or growls into songs. =P

But those animations are smooth and graphics sharply cell-shaded. Once its Closed Beta is released and if I get in, I'll definitely be plugging a controller in to play (these sort of games never tend to work well with a keyboard and mouse combo for me...)

Am I missing something?

I've seen this referred to as a "side-scrolling" game on several occasions now, but everytime gameplay is demonstrated it sure looks like standard 3D to me (including the trailer attached to this article).

Is this just an editorial goof up, misleading video, or did the definition of "side-scrolling" radically change when I wasn't paying attention?

@hansh0tfirst It is a fully 3D game while inside town. Once you go into an instanced dungeon/fighting area, it is 2D...sort of . It's side-scrolling, but in a 3D world. Hard to explain, but it works great.

Something possibly akin to Dungeon Fighters Online you mean? The game itself has 2D sprites, but you move around Double-Dragon/Battletoad/.

The idea of only being able to play as two characters doesn't appeal to me. Do they offer at least some form of character customization other than an vanity items?

Two? I heard there was 3: Angela, Tude, and Franz.

But yeah, I doubt there will be much if any customization. It's funny, though. I thought it would be a total dealbreaker for me too when I tried out Dungeon Fighter Online, but it wasn't. It just doesn't seem as important a limitation in an action MMO as a traditional MMORPG for some reason. I wouldn't put up with it in RIFT or LotRO. But Vindictus or DFO? Eh, whatever.

Remember folks, this is a PWE Beta, which means you get a key to be in with a chance of being in Beta. So the date is probably irrelevant for most of us :(
