The Nintendo Switch will be updated this Winter with the school girl ninja hack 'n slash Samurai Maiden.
It's now locked-in a release date, in accordance with the Tokyo Game Show. The game will be released in Japan (physically and digitally) on the 1st of December, followed by a digital-only release in the West on the 8th of December this year.
Tsumigi Tamaori, a school student, is transported to the Honnoji Temple in the historical Sengoku period in her sleep. Here she must make new friends and use her incredible sword skills to defeat the undead evil.
"SAMURAI MAIDEN follows the story of a high school student who falls asleep after a long day of history lessons, awakening alongside historical figure Nobunaga Oda, who is known as the first great unifier in Japan. Tsumugi is suddenly put to the test in actual battle when she is gifted the evil warding blade by the desperate Nobunaga Oda, who steps into the underworld to put an end to the tragedy."
With Tsumugi's sword skills, players may look forward to "slaughtering mobs of undead enemies." Other ninjas and allies will assist her along the way.
There will be unlockable special abilities, and there will be a way for these combat styles to combine, too:
"Players will be able to utilize the "Gokage System," which allows a quick combination of Tsumugis sword style and The Gokages powerful ninjutsu." From the samurais slashing and piercing attacks to the ninjas wire arm, freezing yin yang jutsu, and various kunai attacks, players will be able to utilize these two types of offense to defeat the hoard of undead
