          INTRODUCTION
    o---------------------o
    Installment number three is here and it is titled Samurai Showdown 3: Blades of
    Blood. This actually part one of an interquel (sequel to Samurai Showdown 1 and
    a prequel to Samurai Showdown 2) as noted by Nakoruru still being alive despite
    her death in Samurai Showdown 2. Her sister, Rimururu is new to the cast along
    with Nicotine's son Gaira, Shizumaru Hisane, Basara Kubikiri, and Amakusa makes
    his return. The boss of this game is Zankuro.
