Hanako: Honor & Blade takes you online for an experience in Feudal Japan. Help shape the future of a nation by playing as one of four classes. Serve a clan to defeat your opponents throughout a multi-map campaign. Master your class’s combat, abilities, and spirit-based skills to get an extra edge. Enjoy a game that is easy to learn but difficult to master.
Journey across Japan, on a symbolic campaign representing a personal trial of life and death of a lost loved one. There are many levels and game modes to play, in (up to) 24 player online battles.
Choose from four warriors classes: The Kenshi (Swordsman), Naginatashi (Pikeman), or Ninja (Assassin). All featuring their own style of combat, movement and weaponry.
Master combat through discovery of different attacks, abilities and combos. The combat system features multiple offensive stances driven by your movement, defensive techniques (such as the grappling hook) and abilities (ranging from acrobatic combos to multi-enemy sweeps and multi-hit combos).
The artistic qualities and backstory of the game serve as a symbolic tribute to team lead, Matt Canei’s late mother. The art and lore of the game represent an everlasting struggle of life and death, health and disease and the natural balance of opposing forces to metaphorically represent real-life tragedies and to honour those lost.
