Get your Clothes Punched Off in Ikki Tousen: Xross Impact

paunch!

" Imagine the characters of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms were all reincarnated as Japanese schoolgirls. Ikki Tousen is that anime."
 
Now, imagine there was a 2d side scroller where the titular feature is your ability to "destroy costumes" via battle. Ikki Tousen: Xross Impact is that video game.
 
Following the events after Ikki Tousen: Great Guardians, the PSP game will feature 6 characters (1 "totally new brawler" whatever that means) and is set to come out April 1st, 2010. 
 
 
EDIT: The new brawler is an original character to the series, and not a character new to video game adaptation.
EDIT: Destructoid confirms that there are "actually" 22 characters. 6 of them are new. Other sites aren't allowed to have typos!

@cfatalis: Oh thanks, I just wasn't sure if that meant it was a character new to a video game, ala the new games for naruto and bleach.

Looks like a sexified version of Final Fight.  Is the anime any good?

Looks kinda cool, something to past the time while waiting for a bus or something.
 
@JJOR64:

Meh, 6 characters? Gotta import it? No thanks.

Are you sure it's just 6 characters? I was reading about this on Destrutoid and they said the game had a total of 22 playable characters. Maybe they just

@Chibi_Kaji:  @Emandudeguyperson:

Kotaku has twice betrayed me today. Bashcrafts lack of editing left him stating there would only be 6 characters, while Dale's source stated the addition of 6 characters. Sounds much more plausible. Though 22 characters in a side scroller both excites and makes me feel that the characters will have little identity.
