About This Game

Adventure in the Tokaido 53-tsugi with three female ninjas!

STORY

Ieyasu Tokugawa, who ended the era of Sengoku and unified Japan.
This man created a highway connecting the capital of Kyoto and Edo.
It is called the Tokaido-53-tsugi.
It is said that 53 post towns were set up along the highway, where travelers stay, rest, and trade harnesses and outfits.
One can find in these Fifty-three stations many famous places and historic sites that still have their features even after 400 years.
On this Tokaido, three ninjas will travel from Edo in this present day with a secret mission.
The three were the ninjas who worked during the Sengoku period; Karin from Koga, Kunai from Iga, and Yuri from Negoro.
There are many obstacles on the road as well as many enemies obstructing them.
Overcoming the difficulties and achieving their goals, the three will obtain a certain precious experience that is, "Kizuna".

Game System

The main feature of "Shinobi no Okite/The three female ninjas" is that it allows the player to enjoy both the Ukiyoe and the action packed part of the game. Upon selecting the stage, the Ukiyoe part will be shown first.
Once a certain part of the Ukiyoe has been reached, the player will then be thrusted into the action part of the game.
In the action part of the game, you will control the female ninja and try to cut as much area as you can (specified in the beginning of the stage) without getting attacked by the enemies. If the player cuts certain area of the stage, the player can see the continuation of the Ukiyoe art.
In a single stage, there will be 2 action parts in between the 3 Ukiyoe parts.
The flow of events would be as follows: Ukiyoe Art A -> Action Part A -> Ukiyoe Art B -> Action Part B -> Ukiyoe Art C.

You are on an adventure with the three Kunoichi (female ninjas) who came from Iga, Koga and Negoro.
They are users of techniques and ninjutsu that have survived the era of the Sengoku.

"Shinobi no Okite/The three female ninjas" is a highly addictive action game that anyone can play.
Surely, every time you clear the stage, you will want to solve the next stage and next, and next.
If you complete the mission with an exquisite balance, you will be able to know the history of Japan through the Japanese art "Ukiyoe".
Enjoy the Japanese art of Ukiyoe, which was introduced in Japan and later influenced famous Western artists(Claude Monet).
It is said that the now famous anime and manga, which are the representing subcultures of modern Japan, have inherited the deformation technology from Ukiyoe.
You can choose from three types of game modes: an encampment mode, a treasure hunting mode, and the capture-the-enemy mode. You will explore the inn of Tokaido together with a female ninja as an adventurer.
At each post, you can peek into the modern scenery of the inns.
As you approach the end of the game, you will learn about Japan's history through traditional Japanese art and think beyond eternity.
