Hanako: Honor & Blade, is a Samurai Ninja multiplayer game currently in early access on Steam. After winning “Best Multiplayer of the Year 2017” by IndieDB, the team has been hard at work developing their Early Access 2 edition which was officially released today June 14th, 2018 at Midnight EST. The new release will introduce a Samurai Archer, New Shiga Forest, Capture the Scroll Map and more!
Travel through a beautiful, fictional rendition of the 16th century of Feudal Japan. Choose between four types of warriors as you learn to master intuitive, directionally-driven swordplay while also choosing unique abilities to ensure victory over your foes.
Hanako will also be available on Steam for a free weekend starting at 1 pm EST June 14th-17th so everyone can sample the game with the updates included.
“Since our first early access release, focused completely on melee – we wanted to bring the Samurai Archer to the game and add new features we’ve been waiting to develop for years. There have been melee games with Samurai, but I’m confident that focusing on Samurai and Ninja offers a fast-paced engaging game experience at a quality level typically seen in AAA games. We hope to keep improving and adding things outside of matches to keep working towards full 1.0 release.” says Matt Canei, Lead Developer at +Mpact
PS4 and XBox One Coming! The team has officially been approved for both PS4 and Xbox One developments and more details will be sent out in the coming months.
