Mitsurugi is a hack and slash action title from doujin game developer Zenith Blue. Gameplay premise is based upon the Bloody Palace from Devil May Cry, except the main character is a joshikousei who wields a katana while fighting in seifuku. Over the years, that concept has been quite pervasive throughout animu and mango, but it isn't depicted much in games. See this:
Did you know that out of the 2,688 games available on Steam, only 78 are Japanese? That's roughly 3%. It's the unfortunate truth, my tomodachis. This is looked upon as sacrilege and desecration in the church of weeabooism, and something must be done about it. But what, you might ask? Well you can start by saying no to the impending flood of yoge kusoge, you can purchase these fun-stuff games as soon as they're released, and you can continue petitioning publishers like Sega to bring over more. Many in the land of the rising sun are unaware that the Steam storefront prints money, so it is up to us to take initiative.
Do not be fooled by imitations! Many weebs have kickstarted other projects that look and sound Japanese, but they are anything but authentic. Always check the source of development. I am not saying that you shouldn't buy, support, and play them. Just that they are antithetical to the cause and wouldn't do much to further it. --- Nippon Banzai!
man here i was going to go buy it to support my fellow otakus in hoping more japanese games to come out to japan, but watching the first trailer on steam made me close the tab. that game was more brain dead hack and slash then DMC. atleast DMC you have map movement, different enemys and voice acting. this one was same enemies but recolored, super fast slash but nothing to show for it, just a lot of screaming.
im sorry but if they want to support japanese games in america, they need to release good games. i can't support this one, no matter how otaku i am. --- Intel i5-4750 3.2Ghz / 2X 4GB G. Skill Ripjaw 1333 / 2 TB HDD / Geforce GTX 580 / 500W 80+ bronze
Looks terrible. Japanese need to learn how to make good games apparently. I don't want to buy their developer "Training" games. --- He who stumbles around in darkness with a stick is blind. But he who... sticks out in darkness... is... fluorescent! - Brother Silence
@return: I think Croxxier looks kawaii, how do you feel about that game?
I like cute and colorful anime games, not so much dark and gritty or realistic looking japanese games.
For some reason Mitsurugi's characters reminds me of the women from Illusion games lolol. --- Ass Fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3QO0z7Vgwvo#t=78 , Funniest Manga: Oretama.
looks like it could be short lived entertaining, but even as a sucker for japanese games, I dont think this one will do it for me --- "In our culture, the phenomena known as emotion is considered a mental disorder."
