Developed by Japanese indie team Zenith Blue, Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae focuses on high-speed arena-based action. Use lightning fast sword slashes, hand-to-hand attacks and mysterious ancient techniques to defeat wave after wave of demonic foes. Use skill points to learn new skills, upgrade your abilities, and take on brutal bosses. Weaken your enemies with vicious wounds, then sheathe your sword to finish them off with style. Employ hand-to-hand techniques to build your katana gauge, then cut deep with your divine blade.
If you like fast-paced and satisfying combat, this game definitely has you covered. It took me a little bit to get used to the mechanics (holy moves and counters in particular) and unlock some of the better moves, but once you get the hang of it, it really does flow amazingly well.
As long as you don't mind that it's on the short side (given the presence of new game+, it's clearly meant for multiple playthroughs...) and is literally nothing but combat (ok, there's also ~5 total minutes of cinematics too...), I think you'll probably enjoy it. If you enjoy games like Devil May Cry and Croixleur, and catch this on sale, I definitely recommend it.
Fun, yet very reptitive
I've already tried this game and have found it to be worth my time and efforts. Although it has limited unlockables, it's still fun to play with.
A total lack of content compounded with poor AI and slow paced combat really make it hard to accept how good the actual combat system and character model are.
The combat itself is relatively fast paced, but with enemies who do nothing but guard and have enough health it takes a while to kill really make the game feel boring.
It feels to me like it is not complete and with some major overhauling could be an awesome game.
This is a really fun game. Short and sweet hack n' slash for blowing off some steam, but has some nice customization options to let you mess around with your playstyle in future playthroughs. It's one of those games you'll keep installed and take out for a spin when you get the urge to jump in and smack some stuff.
