Or super-deformed. Or blue.
  • Night-Crawling – Navigate the torrid waters of love in Amihama and then meet your paramour for a night of revelation. If you can beat the other guy in the room trying to do the exact same thing (race of love?!).
  • Duelists – The game has a cool semi-online feature where other players’ samurais will be uploaded into your game as a computer controlled enemy for you to challenge and vice-versa. If you beat them, you get to claim their stuff.
  • Dojo – You can take over and run the local dojo in Amihama… and fill it by beating people up and forcing them to be your students.
  • Fishing – Anywhere there’s water pretty much is potential fishing grounds.
  • Casino – Buddy up to the foreign consulate and unapologetic hedonist, Jet Jenkins and you’ll get to try your luck at the tables.
