Description

Chronicles of 2 Heroes is an intense 16-bit action platformer with Metroidvania elements, a feudal Japan setting, and a singular mechanic: you can switch in real-time between the two main characters! Both the Samurai and the Kunoichi have unique, surprising combat styles. The Samurai wields a katana and is a perfect war machine, but he lacks the abilities to jump and to attack from distance. On the other hand, the Kunoichi is as fast as fragile and uses ninjutsus and range attacks. You will have to change between playstyles to defeat Amaterasu and her numerous, fearsome minions.

Story

Between 400 and 600 A.D., Amaterasu’s wrath dragged Ancient Japan into a time of wars, famine, and epidemics. Her disciple, Empress Imiko, rule over Japan with an iron fist and imposes terror with her mighty army. All hopes rest on two siblings, Kensei the samurai and Ayame the kunoichi, who will fight their way to bring back peace to the land. Thanks to their abilities and the people that they will meet on their journey, they will get into the imperial capital of Osaka to steal the three sacred treasures, the empress’ source of power.
