Imagine the rain-soaked neon streets of Mega-Tokyo. You, your loyal katana and hordes of mad Yakuzas. There’s no happy ending this time. Take down as many thugs as you can with you!

Akane is a brutal arena arcade slasher based on one-hit-one-kill gameplay mechanics where you will:


Face five types of opponents:


● Yakuza Guy - a common mafia pawn;

● Tank - this is the only villain that will require more than just one katana slash to die;

● Shooter - a sharpshooter with cybernetic enhancements. Pro tip: they never miss;

● Cyber Ninja - a warrior who abdicated his body to become a killing machine. His dash attacks are deadly and his defense seems impenetrable. Remember however that everybody has their weak point;

● The Boss - Katsuro, your Nemesis who evolves, gets stronger and more dangerous according to the number of times he gets killed.


Complete missions to unlock new guns and equipment:


● Different pistols;

● Katanas, each with their own unique unique abilities;

● Cigarettes that change the aesthetics of your special skills;

● Gadgets that grant small but significant improvements in combat;

● Boots that change the dash and the way you move on the screen.


Make a good use of your special Samurai Skills:


● Dragon Slash - dash forward killing every enemy on your way;

● Dragon Slayer - kill all enemies on the screen.
