An atypical fighting game from Squaresoft that was released in 1997.
Featuring 6 different characters, each one with his own set of moves, different strength and speed and 8 different weapons, the game is a 3D fighting game without time limit or health bar, that’s because most of the hits will cause instant death.
The gameplay also is focused on the Bushido Code, this means that some kind of moves and tactics are considerate dishonorable, such as attacking the opponent on the back or when he’s bowing at the start of fight or throw dust into their eyes.
Bushido Blade was well received by the critics, especially for its unique combat system based on “one hit, one kill” that forces the player to stay focused on what the opponent is doing to hit him at the right moment.
