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.
We decided that it would be cooler and more efficient to come up with a new name for the game with a big Trailer coming out somewhere between Feb-Apr and our Early Access release later in 2017. The team unanimously decided on Hanako: Honor & Blade
Our programmers have been working on getting the game more stable so we can spend more time enjoying the game with our internal test group. We've had a handful of two hour tests and it's been awesome, after so many years of work, to sit down and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Game modes have been an on-going focus, more specifically our Capture the Informant game mode - which if you like dragging rag dolls around you may like this mode. We've been improving on prototypes for our Village game mode which is a mixture of capture point and destructible objectives.
Our character and animation team is working on rounding out the rest of the Kenshi (swordsman). He has all of his abilities and half of his basic attacks so we're hoping to round him out by the end of February so we can start working on the Ite (archer) animations.
Our environment team is world building and continuing to create key art and detail pieces for our Hanako Village map.
The Hanako Team wishes all of you a safe & honorable New Year celebration as we bring in 2017 together. We hope 2017 will finally be the year for our near-decade long efforts to get in your hands.
