Nintendo of America has announced via press release that it’s publishing a brand new game on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
The game is titled Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword. This new title sees players travel to ancient Japan and guide a young warrior as he battles waves of enemy soldiers to save a princess. He must identify the enemy’s attack move, dodge it by a hair and counter-attack with his own mystical Sakura Sword to win the battle. The game launches in January.
Hmm, story sounds kind of similar to Zelda…
interesting concept. wonder if it’ll use the 3D effect when you counterattack by zooming in or something. Kinda like how viewtiful joe has zoom in but add a 3d effect to it.
I guess it does:
It looks interesting
Looks like a simple game… almost looks like the toon Zelda games too.
it looks a lot like the okami games to me
gameplay looks quite repetitive…
sounds dumb. though if nintendo is publishing this, there’s a chance this hero character could be in Smash 4.
hopefully there is a 4th ssb
they already announced it:P its for the 3DS and Wii U
Yeah. It’s possible.
Seems to take the idea from ICO.
Cliche plot, will have to see actual gameplay before I decide to actually pass on this game though.
so… the Legend of Super Samurai chronicles?
sounds like infinity blade on the iOS…
Things that are cliche are things that stand the test of time and are proven to work. Why fix what isn’t broken? Sounds like a good game to me, we’ll see how it turns out.
Too early for me to judge.
… is it just me or does this sound like a sungoku era version of LoZ?
>main character samurai
>save the princess
>weild “sakura sword” [referrence: master sword]
Shhhhhh, we figured that out already.
Mind = Intact
Samurai? Ancient Japan? Katanas? *boner*
Sounds interesting, wonder what it could come up with.
When I read, the title, I got excited because I though New 3DS game but it’s an eshop game
Wish that this would be released for the wii to make use of the wiiremote+ :( Zelda and Wii Resort are the only WR+ games I’m playin right now
My first thought, Okami
Oh man, so many negative comments. If it was a full retail title, then I would understand the “cliche” comments and stuff, but this is a downloadable game like Freaky Forms.
The game looks good to me.
Thanks for informing us elgato, the games quality (not that I have any problem with it) makes sense now that I know it’s a downloadable game. On that note it seems that this looks to be like a real great game with some fun mechanics considering it is a downloadable title.
Will most likely end up buying it as I do love my samurai XD and the games quality or a downloadable seems top notch. If there’s a way for you to upgrade your character or customize him in any way, shape or form then this is a definite buy from me.
this was already announced for japan and is on the japanese
eshop as we speak
Yeah sounds a lot like the legend of Zelda with a twist.
Something like Muramasa: The demon blade, that game was awesome for me
cherry blossom samurai … okay…. not that threatening
(insert guy complaining about SS here)
hey has anyone here played freakyforms?
i just bought the game skyward sword limited edition and is garbage
the wii remote looks like crap the orchestra soundtrack sucks full of mistakes and the game is just ok, the controls are not responsive at times but the game is just more of the same….
I got laid by your mom last night, and she smelled like garbage, her tits looks like crap, an her moans suck and are full of mistakes, she sucks ok, but her arteritis makes her handd not responsive at times, but her pussy game is more of the same :l
oh hi son.
I thank you for that. i had a good laugh.
Nice copy and paste.
Real events that actually took place in Ancient Japanese History?

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea
because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
