About

This first entry in the extremely popular and revolutionary
fighting-game series was released in 1993. Choose from twelve swordsmen
with highly individualistic characteristics and fight furiously,
ultimately confronting the evil Amakusa Shiro Tokisada. Each character
wields his/her own specific weapon, but you must be careful not to lose
it during the heat of battle. Some of the fighters also bring an animal
companion into the fray, offering a unique aspect to the quick-paced
action. Another significant feature of the game is the anger gauge,
which indicates the level of anger felt by each of the combatants as
repeated injuries are suffered. If the anger reaches its maximum level,
the attacking ability of the character increases, leading to even more
intense confrontations. Through it all, the refined camera system
smoothly zooms in and out of the playing field, presenting the frenzy of
the battle while showcasing the lively background (watch as the referee
scores hits!). Awake the samurai spirit within and get ready for a new
kind of fight!
This classic game is part of the Virtual Console service, which brings you great games created for consoles such as NES™, Super NES™ and Game Boy™ Advance. See more Virtual Console games for Wii.
