“The combat is visceral and controls are fluid and responsive.”

“Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae has this wonderful little trick to it that is rare in action games; it almost bullies you into learning how to play it properly.”

About This Game

The smash hit action game from Comic Market 84 is finally available on Steam!

Misa is a Blade Templar, a secret defender of humanity, who happens to be a high school student. When her classmate, Suzuka, succumbs to the dark seduction of the Demon Blade, Misa releases she must protect the world at all costs. Already the evil sword is draining Suzuka's life force and, if Misa cannot destroy the Blade alone, she very well may need to strike down her friend.

Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae focuses on high-speed arena-based action. Use lightning fast sword slashes, hand-to-hand attacks and mysterious ancient techniques to defeat wave after wave of demonic foes. Be prepared: the 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 enemies with vicious wounds, employ hand-to-hand techniques to build your katana gauge, then cut deep with your divine blade. 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: 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. Every playthrough of Mitsurugi will grow you as a player until your success if guaranteed! And if the game suddenly becomes too easy, there are three difficulty levels to test your mettle. Good luck!

Just an open arena hack n slash.... It could have been so much more. Sadly you just slay the same bad guys over and over, next level, slay bad guys over and over, next level, you get the point. its the same guys in different colors too. Odd tho, the fight mechanics are pretty cool, you level up your strengths etc, its a likable concept. Movement and physics are pretty good. Very likeable main character plus she's pretty hot. But thats just not enough. I'd prolly give it a 5.5/10, I dont feel its a 5 nor do I feel its a 6 either. Its just barely passable. I wishlisted Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae, got it on sale and am glad I did, but I dont feel its worth regular price sadly. But gotta say, she does have some crazy moves. There is a credit system that you buy upgrades and more moves, again it has so much potential to be so much better than it is.

Nope, nope, nope.

I was hoping I was getting some Onechanbara/Dynasty Warriors game. And I guess that's true: it's just a really really ridiculously crap bad stupid version.

-There are about 2 different backgrounds, but zero maps.
-3 different enemies, with about 2 different recolors of each.
-Enemies are stupid, take a long time to kill-off, and do just about nothing.
-Bosses then are insanely difficult, with a lot of things you simply can't ever block or get out of the way from.
-Building up your character at all means you get a bunch of moves that work worse than the basic moves you didn't buy.
-You'll have to play for about 20-30 hours before you can buy a new outfit, and that's 20-30 hours without upgrading your character. Seriously. Buying a new move costs 200 points, then 300 to upgrade, then 400, etc. Buying a new outfit costs 100000 points.

I wish we got to give these reviews more than just a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down. I'd give it a plethora of thumbs-downs if I could.

Awesome premise, I was thinking this was going to be like shinobi or ninja gaiden or something similar to devil may cry. The intro movie starts out great, it pulls you into the hot-japanese-girls-wearing-a-school-uniform-wielding-a-samurai-sword mantra. Great graphics, ok techno music, but after playing in the same stage, wave after wave, with no more story progression, or dialougue I was dissapointed.
-slice things in half with superb style! (almost like shinobi for the ps2 was back in the day)
-hawt girls
-superb gamepad controlls and really tight fighting system
-great graphics
-pantsu shots
-challenging AI
-Repetitive wave system
-same stage layout with different background
-same enemies with different skins
- borish music, ok sfx's

Its a well made game, its not a simple lil indie game by the looks of it. But it is an arcade style hack and slash game that will give you a couple of minutes of entertainment if you like this sort of game. Go for the pantsu shots, and try to kill 1000 enemies in one sitting, its great stress relief.

Seems like a fan made game for otaku's. Don't get me wrong, the high skirt female protagnist does rock in this game.
