Meet the heroes of feudal Japan

In this game, Amaterasu rules feudal Japan with her formidable army of yokai, and only Kensei and Ayame can stop her. These siblings have trained for years to defeat the goddess, and each has their own unique fighting style.

As a samurai, Kensei devoted his life to mastering the art of the katana. This deadly weapon is flawless in close combat and can parry projectiles. Kensei wears glowing red armor, even if it affects his mobility. Although he cannot jump, he can perform lightning dashes and cut his way through enemies.

On the other hand, Ayame is a hidden kunoichi trained in the art of ninja. She favors agility and stealth over melee combat and can throw kunai from afar to take down enemies before they even know what hit them. If an enemy detects her, Ayame can use ninjutsu techniques to avoid attacks and disappear behind enemies.

Switch them

As you can see, these two heroes play differently. Ayame is great at nimble platforming and Kensei is a melee pro. But what happens when you encounter an obstacle that requires both skills? Fortunately, you can switch between them in real time!

Just press a button to switch between Ayame and Kensei whenever you need to. Most levels will require you to switch characters frequently, but that’s all part of the fun.

Picture this: an undead archer sat atop a high ledge with huge gaps between the platforms. Use Ayame to get high, then switch to Kensei and dash through the gaps while avoiding the arrows. Finally, once you’re close enough, use your trusty katana to take out the yokai.

Do you feel confident? Try to parry his projectiles instead of smashing through them. Or switch to Ayame and teleport behind the archer and keep going without fighting anyone. Thanks to the switching mechanism, you can solve the same problem in several ways. Combine the skills of Kensei and Ayame to free feudal Japan from the wrath of Amaterasu.
