As a samurai, Kensei dedicated his life to mastering the art of wielding the katana. This deadly weapon is impeccable in close combat and is capable of parrying projectiles. Kensei wears shining red armor, even if it affects his mobility. Although he cannot jump, he can make lightning dashes and slash his way through enemies.

On the other hand, Ayame is a secretive kunoichi trained in the art of ninja. She prioritizes agility and stealth over close combat, and can throw kunai from a distance to destroy enemies before they even know what hit them. If an enemy detects her, Ayame can use ninjutsu techniques to avoid attacks and disappear behind enemies.

Switch ’em up

As you can see, these two heroes play completely differently. Ayame excels at nimble platforming, while Kensei is a pro at close combat. But what happens when you hit an obstacle that requires both skills? Luckily, you can switch between them in real time!

Just press a button to switch between Ayame and Kensei whenever you need. Most of the levels will require you to change characters frequently, but that’s part of the fun.

Imagine: an undead archer sitting on a high ledge with huge gaps between the platforms. Use Ayame to climb up the high ground, then switch to Kensei and race across the chasms while avoiding the arrows. Finally, use your trusty katana to kill the youkai once you get close enough.

Do you feel confident? Try to parry his projectiles instead of bursting through them. Or switch to Ayame and teleport behind the archer and keep walking without fighting anyone. Thanks to the switching mechanics, the same problem can be solved in several ways. Combine the skills of Kensei and Ayame to free feudal Japan from the wrath of Amaterasu.
