Mononoke Slashdown

Arc System Works is bringing the FK Digital-developed ninja action game Mononoke Slashdown to Switch via the Nintendo eShop in November, the company announced during a press conference in Korea on October 10.

Mononoke Slashdown first launched for PlayStation Mobile in June 2013. Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:

In Mononoke Slashdown, player character Kagemaru fights with slash combos at close range, and throws Kunai at a distance. He can also jump and perform other additional actions to avoid enemy attack. It is a classic action game for all to enjoy.

At the beginning of the game, Kagemaru has limited actions and abilities. After each stage is cleared and money is earned, players can purchase several items to enhance Kagemaru’s attack, defense, and skills. If a stage is too hard, there’s always a chance to go back to the previous stages to earn money, enhance Kagemaru, and make those hard stages a lot easier!

Kagemaru can also perform slash combos in mid-air. There are also additional skills sold in the shop.

Don’t forget to check the shop often before the start of a stage!

There are five chapters in Mononoke Slashdown, and each chapter contains seven stages. Every stage has different missions. Defeating all the enemies, protecting the villagers, etc. In every chapter there are boss characters who guard the stage. Players must defeat the boss to advance to the next chapter.

Clear the first six stages to unlock the boss stage.

The mission for every stage is different. Before the stage begins, don’t forget to check the mission!
