About Die by the Blade

About this game

“No fear, no hesitation, no surprise, no doubt.” - Miyamoto Musashi

Die by the Blade is a 1v1 weapons-focused fighter where the difference between victory and death can amount to a single strike of the blade. Carve your path through this samurai-punk world with nothing but your trusty weapon by your side in the story-driven single-player campaign or crush your friends in local or online-multiplayer. Looking for more of a challenge? Test your skills against unknown warriors in online ranked matches and prove that you are the indisputable champion.

Will you have what it takes to become a master samurai? Or will you fall like countless others before you?

One-Hit Kills

“The way of the samurai is found in death.” - Yamamoto Tsunetomo

In Die by the Blade, there are no health bars, so you can’t afford to get comfortable and let your guard down.
Our one-hit kill system leaves no room for error.

If you want to survive, you’ll need to master the parrying mechanic, memorise the combos for your chosen weapon, and sharpen your reflexes. The victor of any battle could be decided in a matter of seconds, so be prepared for multiple quick bouts against your opponents.

Choose Your Weapon

“Sword and mind must be united.” - Yamada Jirokichi

A true warrior is defined by their mastery of the blade.

Your moveset will be determined by your choice of weapon rather than your choice of character. Will you sacrifice your speed for the powerful two-handed nodachi? Or will you overwhelm your enemy with a flurry of strikes from the nimble katana?

Our weapons-focused moveset system means that you are free to choose any character that suits you without it affecting your playstyle. Pick the character whose backstory most resonates with you or mould them into your ideal warrior using our character customization features!

Samurai-Punk

“Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise; seek what they sought.” - Matsuo Bashō

The world of Die by the Blade is a fusion of traditional samurai culture and cyberpunk elements, otherwise known as ‘samurai-punk.’

Fight in the neon-soaked streets of the inner city or among the blossom-blanketed fields of the Japanese countryside. Don historically inspired armour or kit your character out with a cybernetic mask. Even your weapon of choice can be customised to suit your personal style!

Feature List

  • Master the one-hit-kill, parrying, and dodging mechanics to withstand a flurry of blows and cut down your opponents in seconds;
  • Choose your weapon wisely, as this will be what determines your move set and playstyle;
