Description

Black and White Bushido is a 2D arena brawler for 1 - 4 players that pits the forces of light and shadow against each other. Each team can disappear into their respective colours and move without being seen. Fight for control of the light or the dark in multiple arenas, hiding from your foes and seizing objectives. Pick up items and use them to surprise, maim and trap your opponents in a way only a true warrior can. Players choose a team, either Shadow or Light and compete to win based either on number of kills or territory captured. There is no energy, the game is one hit kill, though with the potential for endless respawns. Players may jump, dash, attack, creep, teleport and use items in their quest for victory.

History

Black and White Bushido released on Nintendo Switch on Oct, 25th 2018. The game was first released on Steam, via Green Man Gaming in 2015 with subsequent releases on PS4 and Xbox One in 2017.
