If you are an owner of the Wii, please go buy this game. By doing so you will help show companies that there is still an interest in 2D side scrollers and games that are moved by the story not just violence and “awesome” graphics. Plus this game has two stories to go through and over 20 hours of gameplay. Just like Okami and Viewtiful Joe, this game will probalby end up with a strong cult following and not much in the sales department. Hopefully it will perform half as well here as it did in Japan where it completely sold out of all copies in it’s first week on sale.
Plot per Wikipedia:
Kisuke is a fugitive being chased for a crime he no longer remembers. His only desire is to find a certain katana. After defeating his arresters, he meets Yuzuruha who offers to guide his path. Meanwhile, Momohime, after being possessed by the soul of foul swordsman Jinkuro Izuna, is forced to flee her castle and accept Jinkuro’s offer to complete his plan
