  • Review Akane - Stylish Sci-Fi Swordplay On Your Switch

    Big trouble in Mega Tokyo

    While it's impossible to look at Akane and not see the influences of some more obvious cultural touchstones – the body-augmentation of Ghost in the Shell; the motorbike-riding rebellion of Akira; the run-down futures of Blade Runner and 2000AD – when you start slashing your katana and unloading bullet death from your...

About The Game

Akane is a brutal arena arcade slasher based on one-hit-one-kill gameplay mechanics where you will:

Face five types of opponents:

  • Yakuza Guy - a common mafia pawn;
  • Tank - this is the only villain that will require more than just one katana slash to die;
  • Shooter - a sharpshooter with cybernetic enhancements. Pro tip: they never miss;
  • Cyber Ninja - a warrior who abdicated his body to become a killing machine. His dash attacks are deadly and his defense seems impenetrable. Remember however that everybody has their weak point;
  • The Boss - Katsuro, your Nemesis who evolves, gets stronger and more dangerous according to the number of times he gets killed.

Complete missions to unlock new guns and equipment:

  • Different pistols;
  • Katanas, each with their own unique unique abilities;
  • Gadgets that grant small but significant improvements in combat;
  • Boots that change the dash and the way you move on the screen.

Make a good use of your special Samurai Skills:

  • Dragon Slash - dash forward killing every enemy on your way;
  • Dragon Slayer - kill all enemies on the screen.
