Lightweight Samurai slices PS2

From the makers of Bushido Blade

Bushido Blade developer Lightweight is working on an authentic Japanese sword fighting title for PS2, published by Ubi Soft and due for release in early 2003. Sword of the Samurai is to be a story-driven fighter, which allows players to create their own character, tweaking appearance, individual skills and sword-fighting style, and train them to compete for the title of ultimate Bushido Master. Players are expected to develop their technique gradually by learning from esteemed Dojo masters, employing every technique and strategy from ballsy direct attacks to parries and counterattacks. 30 of Japan's most famous sword-fighting grandmasters will make up the competition, and more than 100 authentic swords will make up the armoury. Competitions comprise various tournaments - assassination, defend, rescue, and guard and protect are amongst those named thus far.
