Rooted in the duty, discipline, and honor so entrenched within the way of the warrior (bushido), the Samurai is an absolute master of sword wielding and melee attacks. It is no different in Sadame, the upcoming action RPG title launching February 25 by Rising Star Japan for the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS family systems.
As one of four playable characters, the Samurai is closest to the warrior or “tank” character archetype – lots of health and the ability to deal lots of up-close damage. The Samurai is capable of two types of attack disciplines: using massive individual swords to inflict high amounts of damage upon the hordes of enemies in front of him, or learning the art of dual wielding and equipping swords to each hand.
The samurai, as well as the three other character types, features its own unique play style and will feature items and upgrades exclusive to that class. The story of Sadame and the gamer’s encounters along the main quest will vary depending on the character class chosen as well.
Set in an alternate version of the historical Sengoku, or Warring States, Period in ancient Japan that saw a near constant amount of war and political upheaval, Sadame is a frenetic and imaginative hack-and-slash action/adventure title for the Nintendo 3DS that will have players fight wave after hellish wave of demonic enemies and huge, daunting bosses. Skillfully defeat the evil hordes in front of you with a variety of combos and moves to gain experience – level up your character, improve your weapons and armor, and strengthen yourself to take on the fearsome final foes once and for all!
