December 25th, 1926.
A new calendar era, the ‘Kobun Period’, has begun and Japan seems to be embarking on a new chapter in history. However, unbeknownst to the public, a nationalist revolutionary group has staged a coup d’etat against the Japanese government.
The revolutionaries acted swiftly, gaining control of the prime minister, police, major corporations, and newspapers. Struggling to react, the government leaders order the Iga Ninja to initiate the ‘Yatagarasu’ assassination program and eliminate the leader of the insurrection.
Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm is an original, traditional-style 2D fighting game with 11 playable characters and which focuses on delivering solid game play and high quality production values.
Yatagarasu AoC features 2D pixel art by KOTANI:Tomoyuki AKA Styleos (King of Fighters, Mushihimesama, Ibara), and arresting character art by Miwa Shirow (Dogs, Black Mind) and Yasuda Suzuhito (Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor).
Voice acting talent includes Kaji Yuki (Attack on Titan, Final Fantasy XIII, Genso Suikoden), Uchida Maaya (IDOLM@STER, Holy Knight), and TOUGEKI announcer Koori Masoi.
The Yatagarasu soundtrack is created by Raito (Melty Blood, Under Night In-birth) and performed by doujin songstress LIQU@.
Yatagarasu AoC’s gameplay takes inspiration from Street Fighter III, but incorporates elements similar to BlazBlue. The control mechanics are simple and readily accessible to anyone, but gameplay is based around reading your opponent, parrying and countering, and is deep enough to provide an enjoyable challenge for even seasoned FTG veterans.
Yatagarasu AoC features a unique commentary system which provides tournament-style real-time commentary based on developments in the match. Both Japanese and English dynamic commentaries (audio and subtitles) are available and providing the English commentary are veteran commentators Jchensor, UltraDavid, and Maximilian.
Other features include play with rank matches, lobby matches, online leaderboards, tournament play, Twitter integration, and a fully-featured training mode.
