I’ve been looking forward to this for quite a while, and it seems to have been months – maybe even a year – since it’s release elsewhere in the world as Sakura Samurai. It was released last Thursday, and I eagerly downloaded it.
Sadly, it’s not that great. Sure, it’s not terrible, but there’s not really very much to it.
I’m only at the first boss, so things may yet change, but so far the whole game has been dodge-and-parry sword fighting. Press B and a direction at the right moment to dodge, then swordswipe with A. And repeat. Over and over and over and over.
I don’t really know what I was expecting, but something more than just the fighting bits from a Zelda game, I think. Oh well.
