Game Story

The story takes place around 20 years after the defeat of Yuga(from SS64 2). Nearby Edo, there is an island, and the capital is called Riten-Kyo. Criminals, samurai and ronins are all gathered on the island. Gangs are fighting and trying to gain control and power on the island. And a group called the 'Hagyo Razor Trio'(consist of Mikoto, Touma and Oboro) is planning a revolution against the government. A dark period of time is about to begin.

Note: The following story lines are taken from the instruction booklet and in-game.

In a time where peace and lawlessness co-existed, only few dared to shift this balance. The "Maidens of Light" were guardians of the righteous. There were those, however, who were left uncovered by this luminescent umbrella. Lost in despair, anguish, hatred or violence, these lost souls retreated to an isolatd island, its capital, Riten-Kyo. Slowly, darkness coveted the land and an evil pestilence known as the "Razor Trio" took power. Their leader, Oboro, searching for ultimated power, vanquished the Maidens and now, mercilessly controls the island that is a haven for thugs and unfortunates. The government has secretly dispatched one young Samurai To assess the situation. He will soon find many truths, and discover the rage within.

Twenty years have passed since the defeat of the ultimate evil. Edo greedily enjoys its peace. Nearby floats an eerie island. On this despised "Thug's Lair" reside the age's most ruthless and loahsome criminals. Those who seek world dominance run the capital, "Riten Kyo." And herrein, a new calamity is set to threaten the era's peace.

A story about legendary swords
"Riten-Kyo", located on a lone island near the coastline of Edo, is now a lawless zone where underground conspiracies are forming. Seishirou Kuki, a young government warrior, quietly entered the island to conduct an investigation. There, he finds the unforgettable enemy that killed his father. Here, he will also find the surprise of his life.
