A unique co-operative system!

Samurai Riot really focuses its gameplay on co-operative features. The most powerful attack of the game is the Co-op Special Move that can be used after filling out the co-op gauge. The game is able to judge the quality of the co-operation between players on 3 parameters: duo attacks, mutual support and screen control (the characters are back-to-back with no enemies between them). Players will have to communicate a lot and synchronize their moves if they want to fill the gauge and unleash the Special Attack!

Fight with style!

Flexible gameplay: Thanks to the characters’ abilities and the variety of attacks available to tgem, you will always be able to vary the pattern of your gameplay and create your own fighting style.

Azu the fox: Transform Sukane’s fox, Azu, to grab enemies! He can take the form of a Kusarigama, a Japanese sickle with a chain. Once the enemy is incapacitated, hit & smash at will!

Speed-run friendly: Samurai Riot offers a lot of features that facilitate speed-running such as a time ranking system or pausing the timer during cut-scenes. Knowing that narrative choices change the game and the levels, speed runners have to find the shortest pattern in order to get the best time!

Strong replay value!

Fighting schools: The more you play, the more fighting schools you can unlock. Each new school unlocks new gameplay options and strategies. Characters can learn exclusive abilities and will be granted some exclusive color patterns.
