  • Cel shaded graphics reminiscent of Japanese animation.
  • Exhilarating feel from cutting down hordes of zombies with a katana.
  • Gore effects with decapitations, dismemberments, and even cutting torsos in half.
  • A novice-friendly system that allows combos to rack up just with simple tap of a button. There is also a system called the “COOL COMBINATION” system for advanced players. This requires exact timing to connect combos but with an added bonus of massive flexibility. Provides enjoyment for players of all skill levels.
  • When blood splatters from enemies onto your character, you can change forms into “Berserk”or “Xtatic”to help you defeat powerful enemies like bosses.
