Samurai Maiden is a colourful and stylish melee-focused action game set in a demon-infested alternate version of Sengoku era Japan, and it's coming to PS5 and PS4 in 2022.
In Samurai Maiden, you play as a Gen Z girl named Tsumugi Tamaori transported back in time to Honnō-Ji (the temple where the real-life daimyo Oda Nobunaga was assassinated) during the Sengoku period. With the assistance of an eclectic group of female ninjas, she must defeat the fabled Demon King and his army of the undead.
The gameplay looks fast and fluid, and this might be a title worth keeping an eye on. Samurai Maiden has a release window of Winter 2022, so we won't have much longer to wait to get our hands on it.

Well that looks like it's right up my alley. Something between Sengan Kagura and Onechanbara.
Titles like that are always welcome!
It looks very silly, in all the right ways.
I think I love it. I'll put it on my list right beside Eternights.
@Olmaz A man of culture, I see.
Sengoku period is one of the most brutal and inhuman ages of mankind and its just so funny to see an echi girl cosplaying as samurai in that era. I'm interested even if the gameplay is nothing special
Day 1 for sure. This game is my thing.
edit: same developer as Gun Gun Pixies. Which to me is a good thing.
It looks like fun, bit concerned about the rise of the female pervert in Japanese entertainment though.
@z0d15g0d Female pervert?
I think I'd enjoy it, but I'm not sure how my wife would feel about me playing this...
Day 1 purchase! Looks really good!
@rachetmarvel I think he means "yuri" genre
@Woder Play it on Switch OLED in handheld mode with headphones on👍. I'm torn on which version to get, Switch or PS5?
@Olmaz Senran Kagura and Oneechanbara are two of my favorite series. Those games bring back a lot of good mammar…I mean memories.
@UltimateOtaku91 Nah I'm cool with Yuri. It's Iyo's internal voice at the end that i'm referring to. It's pretty common now and seen as okay in anime but if that was a guys internal voice would be seen as disturbing or dark is what I meant.
Yes, this looks great. Thank you Push Square for reporting on niche games.
@DTfeartheBEARD On PlayStation, there is a chance of getting a censored game, regarding Sony's last three years of anime game censorships. On Switch, drops in performance and lower resolution may have an impact on how the game will run and look like. Hard to decide… Personally, I’d get the better running and looking version on PlayStation.
@Lando_ Those are both good points. I was thinking the PS5 version for performance and better visuals, plus trophies. Mabey I'll wait on a review. Or pick up both versions, who knows lol.
Gives me vibes of Onechanbara and Sengan Kagura, I give it a try if the gameplay is any good.
Looks fun and simple, I am here for it.
@UltimateOtaku91 OH no, I do not ***** with yuri . I have no interest in girl on girl anime or anime inspired games.
No offense to anyone that does.
@z0d15g0d A female character can commit sexaul assault to another female character, and she won't be reprimanded by either other characters or through the moral of the plot. Hell, at some point it will show that the victim will even start to enjoy it, because as we all know, every anime female character has a closeted attraction to other women.
It's a pretty dumb troupe that comes with morden moe anime, which usually have a female centric cast. A recent example of this is the anime LYCORIS RECOIL.
I don’t know. Maybe. If it doesn’t have English voice-over it’s definitely a pass.
@rachetmarvel It's pretty crazy how that's fast becoming the anime norm.Yup I saw a couple of Licoris episodes and thought so. Same with the female lead in Vermail.
Everyone should just get over it and enjoy anime and/or gaming, gaijins dont influence Japanese way of creating anime, this looks fun game, I will like to get it on my PS4 and PS5, arigatou! 🥰
Looks interesting at least
This game looks very cool, like a more stylized Onimusha. I'm in!
