Developer Shade and D3 Publisher have announced that their recently released action title, Samurai Maiden, has sold over 50,000 units worldwide across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
Throughout this title, protagonist Tsumugi Tamaori finds herself summoned within her sleep to the Sengoku period, where she encounters the legendary Nobunaga Oda, Japan’s initial great unifier.
However, a portal to the underworld opens up beneath the Honnoji Temple, causing Tsumugi to be granted a sword by Nobunaga. Though thankfully and coincidentally, Tsumugi knows the basics of swordplay since she practices it as a hobby. So, armed with this genuine weapon, she goes on to slay waves of undead foes.
Combat relies on players upgrading the weapons of the cast and summoning Tsumugi’s allies to perform special skills highly benefitting from context. Further, the multiple difficulty modes provide replayability, and the collectibles containing concept art can be worth looking for.
