Travel through a beautiful, fictional rendition of the 16th century of Feudal Japan. Choose between four types of warriors as you learn to master intuitive, directionally-driven swordplay while also choosing unique abilities to ensure victory over your foes. Join your friends in an immersive multiplayer campaign across Japan in pursuit of either preserving the peace and honor of the Emperor or bringing on chaos and death by playing across four different game modes with different objectives and strategies. Whether you prefer the blade wielding Kenshi or Naginata Samurai, the range and precision of the Samurai Archer, or the deceptive Ninja, the options are vast and the battles fierce.
In just a few days on April 9th, indie studio +Mpact Games will release the 4th major update to their class-based online samurai & ninja game, Hanako: Honor & Blade, on Steam early access. The game will be on sale and on a free weekend from April 9th - 12th. The new update features a year of massive combat polish, introduction of an item store, end of match cinematics and a new map based on the question “what if cancer was a samurai village?”
Hanako: Honor & Blade is a game as a tribute, dedicated to lead developer Matt Canei’s late mother. He had the following strong words about the upcoming map and update, “Many of our developers have lost a loved one to cancer and this map was a deeply personal expression of transforming our own grief into a visually stunning, atmospheric space that captures the theme. We live in crazy times and the takeaway from this level or our game is that there is light in the darkness, and a path to overcome the challenges of our lives.”
Once EAv.4 launches on April 9th we'll be doing a giveaway of 50 keys on IndieDb here: Indiedb.com
We will be on our Discord running events all weekend April 9th - 12th on Discord.gg (We do weekly events here normally too). Check out our Steam page for more details and to take advantage of the free weekend if you don't win a key here: Hanako Steam Page
