Is there a version of Oni with blood?

I just found this screenshot http://www.armchairempire.com/images/Re … /oni-c.jpg and it appears to show the game with blood effects. I haven't played the game in a while so maybe this is just the textures of that level, but it made me wonder if there was a version with blood - the PS2 one perhaps?

Re: Is there a version of Oni with blood?

From the Oni FAQ page:

Q: Why is there no blood in Oni?
A: Two things "killed" blood: First is the fact that the blood sprays tended to conflict/overlap the hit flashes (which as everyone knows by now are an integrated part of the fighting system, and second it was decided that Oni should be accessible to a broader audience. Graphic sprays of blood probably would have pushed the game to a higher consumer rating.

The topic-starting image is from a pre-beta version, which indeed had blood effects.
You can see more pictures with blood here: http://wiki.oni2.net/Genesis/Levels

Plus the blood was hilariously unrealistic. You punched someone and it looked like someone emptied a few buckets of red paint around you.
