Walk the dark path of a blind cyber samurai in Blind Fate: Edo no Yami, an action platformer filled with robotic Japanese folktales.

Welcome to the New Edo period, a dark era ruled over by cyborgs and merciless machines!

You are Yami, a blind cyber samurai in service of the Shogunate meant to protect civilians from monsters and bloodthirsty robotic abominations. It is your duty to bring the Shogun’s justice to the wicked by carrying out your master’s orders without question and eradicating all of his adversaries.

Set out on a thrilling journey across an exotic world where outlandish landscapes are inhabited by bizarre robots and the most frightening creatures from the Japanese folklore.

Cut a path through the darkness with your deadly katana and the shots of your devastating hand cannon to discover a startling truth that lies beyond the confines of the visible realm.

Look deeper and you might find roots of unexpected evil in the heart of shadows...

Learn to survive, relying solely on damaged sensors and the advice of your Tengu mentor. Grow stronger and follow the path of blind rage in the insane and fantastical world of cybernetics and ancient mythology.

“The entire team has been hard at work in these past two years, creating a game that encapsulated our passions, smothering it in art and history, and fine tuning the battle system to bring a refreshing challenge to players of the genre”  shared Saverio Caporusso, CEO and Game Designer at Troglobytes Games “If you’re as excited as us, we invite you to wishlist and pre-order the game today, myself and the team will be waiting for you at the Dojo come September 15th!”

Interested fans can check out the Blind Fate: Edo no Yami — Prologue/Demo, a free introduction to the game's world, offering a better taste of its plot, levels, and boss fights, as well as a glimpse into Yami's past.

The prologue finds you at the City of Ghosts, a once glittering Japanese metropolis, where the tide of battle has clearly turned against you: defeated by an overwhelmingly powerful opponent, you plunge into the darkness below the derelict skyscrapers, only to reawaken and see the familiar reality in a “different light”... But just how real is the world around you?

Key Features

  • The Way of The Samurai: Yami is a samurai demon hunter. Following the path of an honorbound warrior, it is his duty to not only destroy his master’s enemies, but also protect civilians from bloodthirsty robotic abominations.
  • Weapon Combinations: The thin blade of your katana and the heavy hand cannon perfectly complement each other in combat: alternate lightning-fast strikes with incinerating firepower to destroy anything that stands in your path.
  • A world of data and lies: The Mask of the Oni creates a simulation of the world around you, but tread carefully: old data will show you only deceiving echoes of the past.
  • Swords sing unseen: Even blind, you are unstoppable. Use different sensors to detect your enemies and identify their weak spots, then crush them with lightning speed.
  • Robotic folktales of Japan: Discover the story of dozens of robotic versions of Japanese folktale creatures! Find their weaknesses and destroy each one with a devastating finisher!
  • Long-lost mechanical lore: Your sensors pierce the curtain of the past. Use sound, smell and heat to explore the world, uncovering centuries of lore and guiding Yami on his vengeful, story-driven journey.

Blind Fate: Edo no Yami is coming to PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One on September 15, 2022.
