Official Description (Ad Blurb)

Ready your blade - grueling encounters await around every corner in this action RPG in a vast land ravaged by civil war.

To triumph you'll need patience, to learn where each foe - human or demon - is strong, and when to strike at their weaknesses.

Embrace every defeat as a step along the path to victory. Only in death will you find the way of the samurai.

Also included is the Crimson Armor Set to wear in-game, based on the battle dress worn by legendary samurai Yukimura Sanada (available for the first two weeks after launch).
