Onimusha: Blade Warriors, released in Japan as Onimusha Buraiden (鬼武者 無頼伝), is a multi-player game from the Onimusha series. Blade Warriors is a fighting game featuring many of the characters of the Onimusha franchise.

Players may use standard sword fighting with combos, blocks, block-breaking kicks, jump, switch planes (the different levels of the fighting area), use various items, and disarm their opponents. It also includes the original aspects of the Onimusha series, including the absorption of souls and special elemental attacks (lightning, fire, and wind).


The story for the Onimusha characters takes place 10 years after Onimusha: Warlords, months after the events in Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny and 11 years before the events in Onimusha 3: Demon Siege.[1]
