The best Samurai games immerse the gamer in worlds that transport them into the lives of deadly martial artists who use their skills for both good and evil. We love these games because they feature amazing storylines
GHOST OF TSUSHIMA IS AMONG THE BEST SAMURAI GAMES
A big hit when it was released two years ago (and still is), Ghost of Tsushima is an awesome reminder as to why samurai games can be great. You’ll be playing Jin Sakai as he tries to protect the island of Tsushima from the first Mongolian invasion.
It is a game rich with culture and a plot that delivers. Of course, we can’t forget the black and white mode also known as the Kurosawa Mode. This mode made the visuals of the game infinitely more dramatic in its portrayal.
NIOH: A SAMURAI GAME WITH AN INCREDIBLE COMBAT SYSTEM
In Nioh and Nioh 2, you’ll be fighting against yokai as an Englishman, or better referred to as a Western Samurai. This separates it from most samurai games and makes its plot more intriguing.
The game is known for its interesting combat system revolving around using Ki, which acts as your stamina and ability. The controls for the game are easy to understand once you’ve tested it out and explored the various combat options.
FOR HONOR: A FIGHTING GAME WITH A SPLASH OF SAMURAI
From the character design to its gameplay, it fits the samurai way. All the heroes in For Honor have their distinct skills, fighting styles, and weapons – this grants varied gameplay for everyone.
