The Japanese eShop has updated with a listing that shows Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is on the way to Switch. Zenith Blue will be publishing the game in Japan on September 20, though a release in other regions is likely.
Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is an action game that has players taking on the role of a warrior maiden forced to hunt down her best friend, who stole a sacred demon blade. We have more details and a Switch trailer below.
Misa is a Blade Templar, a secret defender of humanity, who also happens to be a high school student. When her classmate Suzuka succumbs to the dark seduction of the Demon Blade, Misa realizes she must protect the world at all costs. The evil sword has already begun draining Suzuka’s life force, and if Misa can’t destroy the Blade alone, she may very well need to strike her friend down.
Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae focuses on high-speed, arena-based action. Use lightning-fast sword slashes, hand-to-hand attacks, and mysterious ancient fighting techniques to defeat wave after wave of demonic foes. Make no mistake; this will not be easy. Your enemies are relentless and will attack from all sides. If you aren’t prepared to strike and roll, you’ll be overwhelmed in no time flat.
Weaken your opponents with vicious wounds, employ hand-to-hand techniques to build your katana gauge, and then cut deep with your divine sword. A spectacular flurry of blades will take down even the largest crowd of NPCs! After beating them bloody, sheathe your sword to finish them off with style. Be warned, however: if the enemy isn’t “bleeding”, then they’ll take the opportunity to strike you mid-pose!
Use skill points to learn new skills, upgrade your abilities, and take on brutal bosses. With every playthrough of Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae, you will continue to hone your skills as a player until you’re virtually unstoppable! If the game suddenly becomes too easy, there are three difficulty levels with which to test your mettle. Good luck!
Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae supports English, so expect a release in North America and Europe in the near future as well.
