3D Action Planet heeft een preview van Ion Storm's Daikatana gepost. Hier heb je een stuk over de in-game graphics & audio:
As I said, Daikatana will feature a much-enhanced Quake2 engine, featuring such delights as Radiosity lighting, Translucency, Snow, Fog and Rain effects, Colored Lighting, 16 Bit Color and Unique palettes for each episode. The action will be viewable from multiple camera anglens, too, including the popular chasecam. The game will also feature a 'Use key' which seems to have become popular again, since its hayday in Doom. In-game cinematics, ala Blood2 and Shogo will also be included to advance the plot although it is currently uncertain how and when these will occur. Despite the relative size and high volume of content in the game, Ion Storm are adament that the game will ship on just one CD. This is largely due to MP3 compression technology and such, meaning that all character interaction can take place in full voice audio. Not only that, but a powerful level editor will be included.
