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.
"Since our first early access release, focused completely on melee - we wanted to bring the Samurai Archer to the game and add new features we've been waiting to develop for years," says Matt Canei, Lead Developer at +Mpact. "There have been melee games with Samurai, but I'm confident that focusing on Samurai and Ninja offers a fast-paced engaging game experience at a quality level typical seen in AAA games. We hope to keep improving and adding things outside of matches to keep working towards full 1.0 release."
Hanako: Honor & Blade first released to Early Access as a soft launch back in October 2017. Since then, the game was seen nearly weekly updates, weekly developer play sessions and won IndieDb's Best Multiplayer of 2017 Award. +Mpact Games also signed to self-publish the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the future. Compared to the first release, the game has added the Samurai Archer class, a new dark forest map, a new main menu and various bug fixes and balance adjustments!
