Onimusha Blade Warriors brings together for the first time famed Japanese actors, Takeshi Kaneshiro as Samanouske Akechi from Onimusha: Warlords and the late Yusaka Matsuda, known for his role in the 1989 film Black Rain, as Jubei Yagyu from Onimusha 2: SamuraiÂ’s Destiny. Onimusha Blade Warriors challenges players to battle with up to three other human opponents or play a single player game against computer controlled opponents.
- New Style of Play Â– Onimusha Blade Warriors is an entirely new concept that pushes the action element in the series to an all-new level. The design of the game provides lightening quick sword slashing and the ability to strike down opponents one after the other.
- Variety of characters Â– Onimusha Blade Warriors lets the player take the reigns of both the heroes and the enemies of the Onimusha world. Players can fight as the noble Samanosuke Akechi and Jubei Yagyu or play as sub-characters including the various demonic creatures from the series.
- Spectacular Effects Â– In efforts to pursue the essence of a true multi-player game, the action is quick and the gameÂ’s effects will focus on big hits and showcase them with hard-hitting visuals.
- Moving Stages Â– Each stage is very interactive and players will find that they are able to interact with much of the background or that the background itself moves due to environmental elements such as the wind.
