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.

Important Update Things

This teaser shows a lot of little snippets of our gameplay, which we haven't shown in a really long time unless you've come to one of our dev streams. Make sure you leave us your comments on what you think! We also have been working on really taking our gameplay and feedback we received from over 250 people at MomoCon and applying it first-hand to mainly combat but also other areas of gameplay too.

So we mentioned last update that we're looking to release to early access sometime at the end of the year or in the first quarter of 2017. Stay tuned for more information and media to get ready for war.

Make sure you join our early access update list and possibly get invited to our internal test team at earlyaccess.hanakogame.com

Art Side Update

We're working on some early art for our new village map but in the meantime here's a still from an upcoming piece of media we'll be releasing at a secret time. Our animators are hard at work with a new version of our Kenshi character. He has been around for the last 2 years with only a few updates and with our new rigging process we want to give him a full treatment and have his animations feeling awesome. One tidbit we will say is that one of his stances is all about sword draw attacks inspired by Iaito and Kenjutsu.

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.

Do you guys plan Linux support? Could be included in Kickstarter too.

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.
