    Battle through ancient Japan as a legendary samurai warrior, in this cinematic adventure
    from the creator of Street Fighter II.


    From fledgling developer Game Republic, led by Street Fighter II creator Yoshiki Okamoto,
    comes Genji, a cinematic samurai adventure based on Japanese legend. As historic hero
    Genkuro Yoshitsune or his trusted companion, warrior monk Benkei, you set out to save
    the oppressed people from the evil warlord Kiyomori and his malevolent forces, and
    restore the Genji dynasty to power.

    Genji combines beautiful, atmospheric visuals and environments with deep combat,
    allowing you to battle opponents across autumnal forests, grand palaces, and
    blood-soaked battlegrounds using an incredibly broad fighting system. Special techniques
    such as the Mind's Eye slows time around you, allowing you to anticipate your foe's next
    move and punish them with devastating fatal strikes.

      from a Japanese sword master


    • A unique AI directs each fight scene transforming each battle sequence into carefully
      choreographed kung-fu combat


    • Lush visuals recall the finest in Asian martial arts cinema
