Traditional Japanese myths come to life in this adventure game with an original visual style, drawing influence from classical Asian ink and wash painting. Art further fuses with action when you use the "Celestial Brush," where specific brush strokes draw actions and objects into existence. Banjo-Kazooie, this ain't.
