Game Description

When the true power of a sword is only unlocked through human sacrifice, you know you're in for over-the-top action. The shoot-em-up masters at Cave set their sights on swordplay in this epic set in a world that parallels early 20th century Japan.

Choose from three modes: Arcade Mode, Slash Mode, and Climax Mode in arcade-style play geared for action overload.
