"Slash-em-up gameplay with little else, not to say it doesn't feature cool characters and slick graphics. Reminiscent of OneeChanbara and DMC series."

Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is a character action game that focuses on fast action and combos. Instead of taking on the role of a traditional male samurai, the protagonist instead is a female templar dressed in a high school uniform, charged with the unenviable task of hunting her best friend.

Hot Japanese School Girl Wearing A Short Skirt With Katana In Her Hands! Is this heaven? This game is so awesome. I love it. The game is short, but worth replaying. This game is pure action, so you cut Duft Punk enemies and Mechas down. The main character and her friend are so beautiful and sexy. There are also a few different outfits (school outfit, priestess outfit and more). There are a lot of PANTSU SHOTS so your dingis will be also happy. The music isn't my style, so I didn't really enjoyed it. That girl really knows how to wield a katana. The fighting system is simple and easy to use. I also like that the character is very fast and athletic. One of the best Hack&Slash games.

You obviously aren't getting this for the breathtaking story or entertaining combat complemented innovative controls. You're here for boisterous pantsu shots and you'll get them.

Suffers a crippling lack of depth, variety, & replay value // A bit of fun, but not enough to justify the purchase

*A gamepad is HIGHLY recommended for this title

+ Saves and upgrades can be accessed and applied at any time in the arena, and effects are immediately applied
+ As upgrades are unlocked, combat becomes drastically more fluid and cinematic
+ In stark contrast to mobs that populate the waves of a given stage, boss fights are actually quite challenging, and are noticeably skill-dependant
+ Character models are rendered with plenty of detail and look generally adequate
+ Japanese voice-acting is well-done; feels very organic
+ Combat is generally very fun, fast-paced, and visually striking

- Camera is sub-par and operates unreliably
- Boring and uninspired environment and audio design
- Game quickly becomes repetitive and a chore to slog through; this is largely because each level offers little more than the last, and it essentially boils down to 'hack, slash, rinse, repeat' with nothing to break up the pace or keep one interested
- The game suffers an achievement bug; Steam achievements that have been unlocked during gameplay will remain locked in the Steam application until the game is closed (this is a problem because they will all share an idential time-stamp)*
- Plot is underdeveloped to the point that it may as well have not been included; utterly forgettable
- Enemy mobs are cripplingly generic and suffer from lack of variety; each stage is essentially a massive copy/paste of the previous stage, and 'upgraded mobs' share the same design with a different color scheme and slightly higher base stats
- Extremely short campaign (1-2 hours) and little else in the way of replay value, save for a drive to unlock all achievements, and a narrow selection of unlockable outfits

*While this may not affect everyone, a quick glance at the forums indicates that others are experiencing this issue

Start by taking a game like, say, Devil May Cry.

Now change all voice-acting to Japanese.

Replace the main protagonist with a female.

That about sums up this game.

Recommended to kill time if you're bored, want some single-player action games, or while waiting for videos to buffer on Youtube.

Hikumi gives this game, a 7 out of 10.

Well-designed fighting system, but the story was a bit too short.
