Y8S2 The Muramasa Blade

Long ago, the Samurai sought to maintain their way of life in a land that wasn't their own. Everything they since built in the swamps has long been under threat from war and oppression. No target is more vulnerable than Seion Bridge, a crucial access point to the Myre. Now, enemies of the Samurai are gathering.

But at the mouth of the bridge, these invading forces face a single warrior: Master Katashi. Expert swordsman, genius tactician, a strict follower of Bushido and above all, he is the wielder of the fabled Muramasa Blade---a weapon said to grant the power of an entire army.

Master Katashi has made it his mission to protect the Myre at all costs, and stop anyone from crossing the bridge...
