Yeah, we know what you're thinking: "what the heck is X-Blades?" Well, take one look at this Sassy Gameplay trailer and you'll get a better idea what to expect; it actually reminds us of a faster (and cel-shaded) version of Heavenly Sword. But wait...did she just whip out the dueling handguns? Maybe it's a Heavenly Sword/Devil May Cry combo that's guaranteed to appeal to action aficionados the world over. It's the speed of this particular title that has us intrigued, and if TopWare Interactive is able to deliver a fluid and well-balanced combat system to go along with that speed, we'll be more than satisfied. Are we looking at a major sleeper hit?
