BackgroundSet in Japan with the hip hop feel of the hit TV series of the same name, this title allows gamers to breathe life into a "lost episode" as one of three playable characters - Mugen, a reckless samurai with break-dancing fighting style, calculated Jin who abides by the decorum of Bushido, and a mysterious new character exclusive to the video game. Stranded in the northern land of Ezo (current day Hokkaido) in search of "the samurai who smells of sunflowers," the player must face foreign mercenaries, master swordsmen, diabolical assassins, mythical beasts, and gangster monkeys.
The core of the game's unique combat system lies in the innovative integration of music and linked attacks. The players can choose an array of combos based on the different hip hop grooves that they can swap at will.
