Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is the first game by indie Japanese developer Zenith Blue, and it has finally gotten an English release thanks to the guys at Playism.
The game is focused on intense, high octane, arena based action and combat. You’ll be dishing out crazy fast sword combos, hand to hand attacks, and of course – ancient magic techniques.
The theme for Mitsurugi is something you’ve seen frequently in anime and manga, but not so frequently in video games – Japanese highschool girls and Japanese swords. It evokes a familiar style, but with rewarding and deep gameplay.
You can check out a trailer for the game below:
You can earn skill points to learn new skills, or you can focus on upgrading your abilities so you can have a better shot at taking down bosses. The combat system is rewarding in that you perform better by setting enemies up, instead of just going in hacky slashy.
Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is currently available on Playism’s store, which you can view here.
