Description Edit | History

"Soul of the Samurai​ (新時代劇アクション 羅刹の剣, Shin Jidaigeki Action Rasetsu no Ken, "New Jidaigeki Action: Blade of the Rakshasa", known as Ronin Blade in Europe and Oceania), is a part survival horror part hack and slash action adventure game from Konami, released in 1999 for the PlayStation.

GAMEPLAY:

From the start the player chooses to be either a young male ronin named Kotaro or a teenage girl ninja named Lin. From then on he or she travels through prerendered levels, killing enemies and fulfilling their mission.

The combat system is quite detailed, and will take a while to get used to. However, when mastered, it is relatively easy for Lin and Kotaro to dispatch multiple enemies quickly from different directions, while simultaneously avoiding the enemies thrusts and swipes. There is a single attack button, but when combined with different directional buttons pressed in different combinations and held down for various intervals. There are different attack speeds which correlate to the weight of the equipped weapon, and this is displayed on the swords 'check' window (also diplayed is the sword's length and sharpness, and a brief description of the blade)."
