Coming to KATANA KAMI: A Way of the Samurai Story, you will play the role of a wandering Samurai guy, accidentally witnessing an evil powerful man forces his daughter of the blacksmith shop to become a concubine.
The heroic blood surfaced, our Samurai decided to rescue the beautiful girl from the petty landlord by… paying the debt on behalf of the girl’s father and the reward of being married to the village girl.
But things are not so easy, before we touch the future princess, our main character suddenly becomes the “chosen one” and has to clean the dungeon every night, not to mention make billions of other “jobs” such as merchants, mercenaries, …
So where will the adventures of the foolish Samurai girl … wrongly the Samurai boy of righteousness go?
Let’s find out with Biareview through the following article.
Although it seems that there will be a lot of things to do the opening of KATANA KAMI: A Way of the Samurai Story is so simple that it can be summed up with words: “training”.
After a long talk about why the hero is chivalrous and some basic instructions, for almost a week (in the game) you only do one thing: plunge into a dungeon (also known as Jikai ) and “cut all that can be cut”.
Each time you enter a dungeon your level will return to the starting point (literally) and the dungeons will be changed randomly once a day, if you die in the dungeon you lose everything. experience points and stuff.
Though the device reset its exp, luckily the level of the sword will stay the same (unless you throw it away or break it).
Each different sword type will have different fighting styles, you can equip up to three weapons and change alternately in battle.
When you level up a weapon, you will unlock the skills for that weapon, but it only applies to that weapon and not to other weapons, including the same type.
Besides, another privilege for you is the “Katana Time”, which has 3 different Katana Time steps, each with a different ability.
When entering Katana Time, the player will greatly increase all stats as well as be invulnerable for a short time.
As long as you go into the dungeon, the sword-making quest is just as important as it is.
With more than 100 weapons of all kinds and 9 sword positions (with a little costume), it’s no small matter when you want to find a weapon that suits you.
Sword after use will be worn away, you will have to sacrifice old swords to sharpen or upgrade your swords.
For some cursed swords or holy swords, special materials are required.
After endless days in the dungeon without the sun, the game will give you some small activities “make a change” such as helping villagers, collecting debt, making friendly delivery …
KATANA KAMI: A Way of the Samurai Story owns three main factions: Post Town, Akadama Clan, and Kurofu Family.
“During the war, the most profitable one is the blacksmith.” By trading swords, hiring, and doing partisan duties you will receive money, fame, and grace from your “partners”.
Conversational decisions will also affect your allies-to-foe relationships or remaining neutral.
The first thing I feel frustrated about KATANA KAMI: A Way of the Samurai Story is how the game’s camera is designed.
The game is designed in a “top view” style, but that doesn’t matter much except the manufacturer … locks the player’s camera.
To increase the challenge of my camera design, the game decided for the map “dark” and the visibility obstacle was as much as fall leaves.
Sometimes I get sneaked on by a masked monster without being able to know where it is and the see-through-object feature only works when that monster … dies.
The balance of the game also has a serious problem, sometimes weak monsters like “slug” make you “illusion” like a Rambo, rush in to hit the dust bag, and then hit hard like someone to throw you in certain Souls game!
Besides, the game’s layout is also a nightmare, most of the inventory arrangement is done manually by clicking on each item correctly and deciding the fate for that item.
The problem here is that after a night in Jikai, it is normal to have your inventory become overloaded while it is not always the job of selling swords.
And it is a long story to choose each item to throw away.
Training in Jikai can bring excitement at first, the more it gets bogged down in repetitive things like an endless vicious circle.
