Hanako is a third-person melee combat game being developed using the Unreal Development Kit that features believable Feudal Japanese melee combat constructed off of the principles and techniques of Kendo, Iaito and Ninjitsu. In addition to a gestural combat system, you may display your mastery of the blade in an array of game modes including: Battle (Divided into Village and Battlefield Battles), Castle Siege/Daimyo Assassination, Capture the Informant, Duel and Free/RP Mode. Another layer of strategy comes into play with class-based combat in which you can become a Samurai Kengou and wield the mighty katana or perhaps a Samurai Archer piercing the enemy with devastating arrows or a stealthy Ninja Assassin to name a few of Hanako's six character classes.
