The year is 1187 and the scattered Heishi clan are gathering their forces. As their brutal warriors sack temples and villages - and rumours of their dark new powers spread - Genkuro Yoshitsune must draw his Genji samurai around him and begin the final battle to secure the survival of ancient Japan.
Exclusive to PlayStation®3, Genji: Days of the Blade is brought to you by Yoshiki Okamoto, the celebrated creative talent behind Street Fighter II, Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. With a combination of stunning cinematic graphics, dazzlingly elegant swordplay and an epic story based on Japan's most enduring legend, this is a title set to define next-generation combat gaming.
You'll lead Yoshitsune and his men in massive battles against hundreds of warriors, as you strive to defeat the enemy warlord in epic battle sequences based on Japanese history. Beautifully detailed battlegrounds reflect the splendour of feudal Japan, from shimmering details of the great naval battle of Dannoura to monumental horseback encounters at Ichinotani, in one of the most immersive and epic gaming experiences ever created.
