There are many fighting games, but that follow the One Hit Kill mechanics so typical of the Bushido Blade from the Light Weight studio, first seen in 1997, no. Without life bars, his grace was to be able to kill the opponent with a simple blow, as long as he hit critical points of his anatomy. Already on PS2 it was the Kengo.
And from time to time, you still see a representative who inherits his spirit, like One Strike. The next? Die by the Blade , whose crowdfunding premiere occurred in the middle of last month and has recently covered its financing on Kick Starter for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox, ten days after finishing its campaign.
Its creators, Grindstone Games, do not hide the influence of the Bushido Blade from the first PlayStation when creating this new fighting game with bladed weapons and the possibility of killing the opponent with one touch. Although there are differences, of course. For example, that cyberpunk setting , but with samurai.
In addition, being a more current game, we can not only play in local mode, but also online. And we have a good range of options to customize the fighters. Now, the dismemberment will not be lacking, since not a hair will be cut with the gore , which is very welcome here.
If your team lives up to its promise, Die by the Blade will be released in June 2021 on current consoles and PC. What does not seem so clear is that he will achieve his second goal, with 40,000 euros (for now he has more than 19,500 euros), where he would introduce single-bullet firearms per combat? Better not.
