Upcoming PlayStation Vita title Ronin of Ukiyo is an action title that will play out like a samurai-style action film. The game’s website has revealed some of the latest features to be included in the title.

Ronin of Ukiyo‘s standard attacks are quite simple to master. There will be weaker attacks that are quick to perform and strong attacks that take a little longer to connect. You will also be able to launch enemies up into the air and then keep them airborne with the use of aerial combos.

Once you have filled up a certain meter, there is a ‘Slice and Dice Dance’ move that you can unleash that will cut down all enemies around you continuously until the meter drains. This manoeuvre also has a flashy finisher to complement it – but you will only want to use this when your enemies overpower you!

Another ability that we are introduced to is the ‘Secret Sword Technique’ – a powerful move that also requires for you to fill up a gauge before use. Fear not if the sword is not your weapon of choice, each weapon will have a ‘Secret Sword Technique’ available – so you don’t have to miss out!

The majority of these abilities will be learnt via the use of ‘Mastery Points’, however you can steal these abilities from the enemies that you battle when they attempt to use the moves against you. This will enable you to save the Mastery Points you earn to spend on other skills. The abilities that you do acquire can be named however you see fit, ensuring for some fantastical and funny names to follow for your character’s best moves!

If ever you do get bored of hacking and slashing all of the enemies that you face, you can instead cut away their clothes instead of killing them to reveal naughty images, which are collectibles in the game. Customisation of your character is also encouraged, so some ridiculous looking samurai are sure to be seen on the battlefield!

Releasing in Japan on February 11th, be sure to keep your eyes on The Vita Lounge for all the Ronin of Ukiyo news that you will need!

    I like the new image files viewer, but for some reason those photos cannot be opened.
    Anyway, I’ll keep my eyes on this game, it looks bloody interesting.

    What sets this apart from Samurai Warriors? I’m interested as to whether or not you can chop the clothes off of male characters 😉
