Set three years after the last chapter of Genkuro Yoshitsune's life, Genji: Days of the Blade, continues to expand on the historical accounts of feudal Japan. Days of the Blade unveils beautiful next generation visuals and sword slashing gameplay as an exclusively developed title for the Playstation 3.
Three years have passed since the young swordsman, Yoshitsune Minamoto, and his warrior-monk companion, Benkei Musashibo, defeated the Heishi Clan and their leader in a brutal battle over the possession of "Hinaishi"-- divine jewels that bring their owners godlike powers. With that success, it had finally seemed that peace, however temporary, had arrived.
During this time, Yoritomo Minamoto, Yoshitsune's older brother and leader of the Genji clan, tracked the remnants of the Heishi to the South of Japan where he and his army were preparing to eliminate their weakened numbers.
However, rumors begun to spread of new, ungodly creatures appearing within the Heishi ranks and their evil force re-strengthening, even without the use of the Hinaishi.
Now, with the aid of his closest friends and some unlikely allies, Yoshitsune must once again wield his fierce blades and summon the powers of the Hinaishi in and epic battle to save all of Japan.
Prepare for a next generation action/adventure that combines dramatic and fluid martial arts combat with an ancient historical tale of feudal Japan.
