Update: Konami has told Eurogamer that it is looking at a European Ninety-Nine Nights II release in September.
Original story: Konami has announced a 29th June release for Ninety-Nine Nights II in the US.
North Americans can also try a demo for the hack-and-slash sequel.
Like Dynasty Warriors, Ninety-Nine Nights II pits one exaggerated fighter against a zombie-like horde. Over-the-top special moves and combo-counts rule the day, as do a melodromatic plot and skimpy battle wear.
Improvements in the sequel include co-op, both local and online.
We're checking with Konami about European plans.

Pretty graphics and a screen full of baddies seemed to foretell what a machine what Xbox 360 was capable of.
