Follow the adventures of Sukane and Tsurumaru in this hand-painted 2D co-op beat-'em-up.

Who hasn’t ever dreamed to relive the intensity and conviviality of old school Beat’em Up, with an up-to-date feel? Take note, nostalgic enthusiasts and fellow gamers: Samurai Riot is on its way!

Take on the role of Sukane or Tsurumaru and set off on an adventure in a hand-painted 2D universe that opposes tradition and modernity. Fight against huge Sumo wrestlers with law enforcement shields, or with trigger-happy enemies, or even against creatures straight out of Japanese mythology! Samurai Riot offers a multi-branching scenario with progressive levels of difficulty, which on top of its noticeable replay value adds a truly immersive experience within the world and the stories of both characters.

Each player can develop their own way of playing and can mix different ways of fighting, be it punch, kick, grab, throw, poison, bombs - many ways to bring down Samurai Riot enemies and bosses that include massive Sumo wrestlers with law enforcement shields, trigger-happy ninjas, mythological Yokais and more.  

Kevin Buchet, game designer at Wako Factory: “Samurai Riot is a game that can judge the quality of your cooperation. For example, if you protect your partner’s back or hit together the same enemy, you’ll be rewarded and unlock a deadly cooperative attack! Even the story involves both players equally, you’ll have to make team-based choices, or enter a PVP fight against your partner to win the lead!”

Choose to co-op and follow the same path as your partner, or choose to disagree and battle it out during a PvP fight. Any decision you make will greatly impact your story, which can lead to 8 alternative endings.

Enter the civil war by playing an enigmatic Ninja, or an honourable Samurai, and make your own decisions in order to resolve the unstable political situation, surrounded by stunning 2D hand-painted landscapes. Adopt the airy gameplay of the energetic Sukane, helped by her little fox Azu, or pick the robust gameplay of the formidable Tsurumaru armed with its sharpened katana, to knock all of your enemies to the ground. The game is also playable in solo, for those who would like to take on this adventure alone!

Key Features:

  • 2 player Co-op and solo 2D Arcade gameplay
  • A unique cooperative system with devastating combined attacks
  • Multi-branching storyline with moral decision making
  • 8 different endings
  • Strong replay value: ~ 60hrs to unlock all the fighting schools and go through all the stories.
  • Superb in game music and SFX

Samurai Riot will be available as digital download through Steam on September 13, 2017 for £10.99, $14.99, €14.99.
