“Dead Samurai is an indie-developed top-down 2D fighting game set in the modern age. The player controls one of three characters, each with their own unique playstyle and abilities. Each character has four normal moves which can be combined to create combos, as well as one special move that deals higher damage at the cost of having a longer cooldown. The player can also kick or guard to cancel attacks and create openings for counterattacks.
“Dead Samurai was developed by DeadNinjaGames. An early demo of the game was originally designed for a competition hosted by Microsoft Studios in January 2014, where it received an award for Most Promising Start.
The full version of the game was released on December 15, 2015. It received mediocre reviews from critics.”
“Dead Samurai,” a fighting game with three characters that gamers could choose from, each with their own unique playing style and abilities. The objective is simple: defeat all the other samurai in battle and prove you’re strongest of them all! Only one character can survive this epic match after defeating all his enemies! But before you can enter the battle, I suggest taking a look at your character’s abilities…
First up is Edison, the “help me” kid. Nah, just kidding. Edison was the CEO of Diamond Corps (a company that has no relations with dead ninjas or famous rappers.) He has an average range and his combos are rather slow; but he’s got some really cool moves up in his sleeves which would definitely come in handy when it comes down to facing multiple enemies. His kick-counter ability allows him to counter all kicks coming at him while maintaining an offensive stance (kicks cannot be countered with guarding.) This will allow you to push your enemies back and create room for some counter!
What is a samurai, and why do they have to die?
Samurais, also known as bushi or buke were the military nobility of medieval and early-modern Japan.
The modern figure of the samurai became popular after the Battle of Sekigahara when Tokugawa Ieyasu established himself as the Shogun in 1603. A samurai was generally expected to have a set of specific characteristics just like their counterpart, the bushido. Most importantly, he had to be skilled in both literary and martial arts; talented in horse riding, swordsmanship, archery etc… A true samurai never showed cowardice in battle either by being captured alive by his enemies or retreating from an unwinnable fight. And no self-respecting samurai would dare kill himself with anything but a sword!
Why are people so interested in dead samurais?
Dead Samurai captured the attention of thousands of gamers all over the world. Everyone who enjoys fighting games would definitely love to try out this game! And if you think about it, samurai are pretty interesting in terms of history! We all know they were skilled warriors but nobody knows what happened when they died… Do you think they simply disappeared once dead? Or do you think there’s more to it? What if their souls entered the swords that killed them and became a part of them?!
My personal opinion is that I find samurai fascinating because each one had his own life story which led him to become a masterful warrior. Also, he was able to master at least one skill required for survival in battle. Plus, did you know that female samurai existed? I bet they were super cute!
