D3 Publisher and developer Shade have announced Samurai Maiden, an upcoming action game for the PS4, PS5, Switch, and PC via Steam that’s set to release this Winter.
Players will take on the role of Tsumugi Tamaori, a student that has mysteriously woken up in the Sengoku period to defeat the evil undead with the assistance of 3 other ninjas known as the Gokage.
The Samurai Maiden trailer shows some fast and flashy gameplay, especially when some special abilities come into play. Interestingly, the game has a mechanic where Tsumugi and the Gokage’s abilities are heightened by kissing each other but will have to build trust in each other first.
Here is an overview of the game:
A temple in flames. Swirls of black smoke rise high into the sky.
