It will be a "fighting game" in the sense that Sangoku Musou is a "fighting game". I think there is way too much shit going on for it to control anything like a normal fighter, I theorize the characters will be simplified and will work like people from Sangoku Musou.
As much as I love Musou, BASARA and their ilk, I still would not consider them "Fighting games", any more than I would consider old school stuff like Kunio-kun, Double Dragon and Bare Knuckle "Fighting games". They're all brawlers/beat-em-ups/hack-n-slashers at their cores, no matter how much they try to cover it up with strategic elements, a combo meter, context sensitive special techs and other such things.
I'm not about to hold that against GG2 in the least, but I'm just calling it as I choose to see it. It may actually stand to be a good game, it just doesn't look to be a fighting game (in the traditional sense) in the least.
Dokuganryu wa Date jya ne you see?
