Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae

Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is coming to Switch via the Nintendo eShop on September 20 in Japan for 1,200 yen, developer Zenith Blue announced.

The action game is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

Misa is a Blade Templar, a secret defender of humanity, who also happens to be a high school student. When her classmate Suzuka succumbs to the dark seduction of the Demon Blade, Misa realizes she must protect the world at all costs. The evil sword has already begun draining Suzuka’s life force, and if Misa can’t destroy the Blade alone, she may very well need to strike her friend down.

Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae focuses on high-speed, arena-based action. Use lightning-fast sword slashes, hand-to-hand attacks, and mysterious ancient fighting techniques to defeat wave after wave of demonic foes. Make no mistake; this will not be easy. Your enemies are relentless and will attack from all sides. If you aren’t prepared to strike and roll, you’ll be overwhelmed in no time flat.

Weaken your opponents with vicious wounds, employ hand-to-hand techniques to build your katana gauge, and then cut deep with your divine sword. A spectacular flurry of blades will take down even the largest crowd of NPCs! After beating them bloody, sheathe your sword to finish them off with style. Be warned, however: if the enemy isn’t “bleeding”, then they’ll take the opportunity to strike you mid-pose!

Use skill points to learn new skills, upgrade your abilities, and take on brutal bosses. With every playthrough of Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae, you will continue to hone your skills as a player until you’re virtually unstoppable! If the game suddenly becomes too easy, there are three difficulty levels with which to test your mettle. Good luck!
