So players take on the role of Sukane. The enigmatic Ninja who fights alongside with Azu, the fox. Who can also transform into weapons. Or Tsurumaru, a loyal samurai with a katana and a bunch of grenades. Then set off on an adventure in a hand-painted 2D universe between Japanese mythology and cyberpunk!
Kevin Buchet, Game Designer at Wako Factory “We are massive fans of cooperative games. Especially arcade style and Samurai Riot really focus on the co-op features. For example, if you protect your partner’s back or hit together the same enemy. You’ll be rewarded and unlock a deadly cooperative attack! Even the story involves both players equally. You’ll have to make team-based choices. Or enter a PVP fight against your partner to win the lead!”
