Hanabusa is a young headstrong girl living in the Heian capital within medieval Japan. But when her mother is slain by evil spirits, her life turns into one of vengeance as she sets out to hunt and destroy the spirits.

During Hanabusa’s travels, she meets a white fox who turns out to be a servant of the mountain god. Hanabusa receives a special sword passed down from her mother, which gives her the ability to see the true forms of spirits to help slay them. Shortly after, a spirit claiming to be Hanabusa’s long-lost father, Hidetada, breaks her sword and leaves Hanabusa powerless and confused.

Now to mend her broken sword and learn the truth about her father, Hanabusa embarks on a journey to annihilate every last one of the evil spirits.

Due to popular demand we added Steam keys to all copies of 99 Spirits everywhere, not limited to those above listed anymore, so you should all get a key as soon as they add them. Gotta love contradicting myself. ;)

The game engine (which we cannot modify) seems to have problems with some non-English system locales - Korean, Greek and Thai in particular. If you recognize yourself on the list, we recommend trying to play the game with AppLocale, or setting your system locale to English. Really sorry about the trouble!

@Jadomonkey won't be much longer!

@aztop009 That's correct.

As you'd expect, Kojiro's sword skills are nothing to scoff at! She's voiced by Amasaki Mika, and her character design is by Poyoyon♥Rock.

The final Zipang hero we're introducing is Sasaki Kojiro, the tragic swordswoman chasing after Miyamoto Musashi.

Isshiki Hikaru does a stellar job of bringing Seimei's character to life. I'm sure she needs no further introduction.

Abe no Seimei is the most laid-back of Zipang's heroes, but her spells are the real deal. Voiced by Isshiki Hikaru!

Takeru is serious to a fault, but is there a reason she hasn't been active in battle...? Voiced by Kitami Rikka.

Introducing Yamato Takeru, Zipang's strongest hero and wielder of the Kusanagi. She's Himiko's pillar of strength.

@LiamExe Not yet. We don't announce release dates for games until they are absolutely certain, even if that ends up being a week prior.

Benkei is voiced by Katou Megumi, and as usual you can check out her cheerful voice on the character page
