Developer/Publisher: Capcom for Capcom
Platform(s): PS2, XBOX, PC

A samurai and a female ninja pursue a warlord in 16th-century Japan. It might be a Merchant Ivory movie if it wasn't so KATANA-SWINGINGLY KICKASS. Come for the swordplay, stay for the fighting-the-final-boss-while-wearing-a-panda-suit. Yeah, that's right.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
Originally designed for the PlayStation (and moved to the PS2 when halfway through development), the game was made more difficult for its Xbox port under the name Genma Onimusha.
