Travel through a beautiful, fictional rendition of the 16th century of Feudal Japan. Choose between four types of warriors as you learn to master intuitive, directionally-driven swordplay while also choosing unique abilities to ensure victory over your foes. Join your friends in an immersive multiplayer campaign across Japan in pursuit of either preserving the peace and honor of the Emperor or bringing on chaos and death by playing across four different game modes with different objectives and strategies. Whether you prefer the blade wielding Kenshi or Naginata Samurai, the range and precision of the Samurai Archer, or the deceptive Ninja, the options are vast and the battles fierce.

One month to go! We'll be coming to Steam Early Access on October 9th! We've been working hard to test and get ready for our first major public milestone. We can't wait to release the last 4 years (9 yrs for some) of work to the world.

The game will be available October 9th for $5.99 on Steam: Steam.playhanako.com

We know there will be issues, it's an Early Access, we're treating it as kind of an Open Alpha/Beta that will hopefully, with your support, allow us to earn the resources we need to get to our final, polished 1.0 version.

The last 3-4 months, since MomoCon and Dreamhack-Atlanta we've been working hard to get our last map and game mode for the release done. We're working on gameplay tweaks, bug fixes, server architecture and doing our very best to have a great early release.

We will be doing A LOT of testing in the last month so please sign-up to help weekend stress tests and help us get it ready. We would love to have you be part of our family and make this into something great. Spread the word.

Sign-up for closed tests: Bit.ly

With Love,

Hanako Development Team

Not sure. When we did title research last year when we were re-branding the game nothing came up anywhere with the exactly title or name. We had about 5 final candidates and the team voted on this one.

Definitely still alive. We'll likely be looking at a late 2016 for closed alpha/beta. Looking into getting some funding to speed things up. :D Thank you.

We will not rest until it is done.

We have discussed it a little bit. It doesn't seem hard in UE4 to go to Linux or Mac, but it's something that needs more serious discussion.
