Here is the official preview of Senren *Banka:
Deep in the mountains is Hoori, a small village so isolated that no train stops there. Due to its isolation, it resisted the spread of civilization. However, its rustic charm and hot springs have made it a popular tourist destination.
One of the biggest attractions in the village is the divine blade Murasamemaru, stuck in a stone where no one could pull it out…until our protagonist Arichi Masaomi managed to snap it in half.
Before he can even comprehend what just happened, he is forced to make amends for what he has done. How, you ask me? By marrying the village miko, of course!
He’s already way over his head, but this is only the beginning of his mysterious and unfathomable new life in this village.
Masaomi then goes to meet her new fiancé, discovers an enigmatic and strange girl that only he can touch, and begins to learn of the curse that afflicts the village of Hoori.
In the midst of this hectic new life, who will he set his sights on? The answers he seeks lie in the legendary sword in his hands.
We’ve included a trailer for Senren*Banka below.
Senren*Banka will be sold as a digital download on the Switch eShop.
Update (5/1):Senren*Banka is confirmed for a Western release on May 27, 2022. The price is set at $31.49.
