Dawn of the Ronin is a very stylishly silhouetted 2D action game that places you in control of an unnamed Ronin warrior right in the heart of 16th Century Japan.
The game promises deep and flexible combat mechanics, utilising blocks, dodging, throws and swordplay, with unlockable sword stances and moves, and 2 different playable characters (male & female) with their own individual fighting style. In Dawn of the Ronin you’ll enter an ancient feudal Japan, taking part in an adventure based on fact and myth, you’ll be fighting alongside legendary samurai warriors and slicing your way through the opposition, defending Osaka and standing against the Tokugawa regime.
It’s certainly a great looking game, with it’s fast paced and brutal combat set in a wonderfully silhouetted feudal Japan where swords are sharp and limbs are there to be severed. Shadowy samurai sword-slashing sweetness.
