Today Spike Chinsoft released a brand new and extensive trailer of its upcoming game Katana Kami: A Way of the Samurai Story.
The trailer revolves around two major aspects of the title, its isometric hack & slash combat, and its online multiplayer.
Multiplayer is quite interesting, as players are allowed to either collaborate or compete and there seem to be a lot of room for mind games and betrayal if you’re co inclined.
Incidentally, we also get another glimpse at the story, which revolves around a samurai who decides to help the deeply indebted blacksmith Dojima earn more money as his cute daughter Nanami is taken by debt collectors as collateral.
You can check it out below.
Katana Kami: A Way of the Samurai Story releases in Japan on February 20 for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The western release will come day-and-date with the Japanese one which is always a nice thing to see.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Way of the Samurai series of which this is a new spinoff, it’s an action-RPG franchise developed by Acquire and published Spike which debuted in 2002 for PS2 and then continued until Way of the Samurai 4 for PS3 in 2011.
