Skill meets style in this precision sword-fighting game.
Leave button mashing behind. Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword is about precision swordplay, battlefield finesse, and martial-arts style. As the heroic title character, you’ll travel a world rife with cherry-blossom beauty—and deadly danger—to rescue the legendary Princess Cherry Blossom. Her kidnapper has set dozens of blade-wielding henchmen in your path, and you’ll have to exercise your best battle senses to defeat them and save her.
Learn to predict your foes’ moves, deftly dodge their attacks, and create opportunities for devastating counterattacks. Start with the Sakura Sword, a little health, and some basic training from your water-spirit guide. Make your way from battleground to battleground fighting wave after wave of increasingly cunning enemies. Fight through huge castles to duel epic bosses. And don’t forget to stop at small villages along the way to get help, gear, encouragement (and distraction) from the quirky townsfolk. Prove that you truly are the Sakura Samurai!
What Club Nintendo™ members say about Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword:
"A sword game that requires quick reflexes and precision. Sakura Samurai captures the essence of Bushido training. You might find yourself thinking like a samurai after playing this game." –- Wesley
"LOVE THIS GAME! As a casual player, I liked how I could just hop on and practice the levels I wanted to as many times as I wanted to. There's a good variety of enemies as you practice your sword wielding, requiring you to hit each differently!" –- Jessica
"The combat, while simple, is truly engaging. It is easy to learn, but somewhat difficult to master. The fun factor is very high and the sense of satisfaction you get from clearing a boss stage on expert difficulty is fantastic." -- Christopher
