Slice Dice and Rice

Arc System Works will release the Dojo Games-developed fighting game Slice Dice and Rice for PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store in Japan on December 19 for 1,800 yen, the publisher announced.

Here is an overview of the PC version, via its Steam page:

One Clean Hit Kills

Slice Dice and Rice is an indie fighting game with no health bars. Inspired by Bushido Blade, it revolves around the idea of finding an opening in opponents defense and ending the round with a single, clean hit. Gone are the tedious hit points – each scratch impairs your movement, every wound might be your last.

Gameplay

Our goal was to make fighting games accessible to anyone. An intuitive set of basic abilities allowed us to remove the need for memorizing inputs and move-lists, while retaining the complexity. Moves can be canceled to feint an attack, hits can be parried or dodged, and they can clash with one another. This creates a mind-game heavy gameplay, one that mimics real samurai showdowns

Characters and Stages

You can play as one of eight characters, all with their own stories and unique fighting styles. Game’s cast offers many variations of gameplay, from a swift monk using only his fists in battle, to a muscular lady with a giant sword that compensates speed and mobility with endurance during her attacks.

Fights take place in alternative version of Japanese underworld and features 6 unique stages with hand-drawn textures.
