Furthermore, you can create your own loadouts with Combat Techniques to create your very own combat style. From spinning slashes to fire attacks and even combos to chain your attacks together. Build up your own fighting style for a combat experience unique to you.
Defeat over 100 legendary Japanese warriors
Over 100 legendary warriors from Japanese legend and history including Oda Nobunaga, Date Masamune and Sanada Yukimura will be summoned to stand against you.
Defeating them will reward you with their weapons and armor imbued with various status boosting effects. Donning this armor will not only give you an advantage in battle, but also add a little style to your loadout too.
Accumulate experience and strength through defeat
Levels are procedurally generated, with enemy placements and type being different every time, which also means different Combat scrolls for you to collect.Falling in battle does not mean you lose everything, so keep building up your loadout and fighting style until Susanoo regains his lost strength.
