Princess Kaguya is a Japanese-style beat ’em up game. Play as a beautiful princess dressed in traditional Japanese garb, and battle enemies using a kendama stick and a bow and arrows as weapons!
Switch weapons according to the type of enemy you’re battling, and smash through hordes of enemies using special moves.
Control an adorable character to battle your way through in this light-hearted action game.
The central theme is loosely based on the ancient Japanese folktale called the Taketori Monogatari.
Once upon a time, the Wicked God brought great calamities upon this world.It spread a deadly plague and sent forth the Evil Spirits of Rivers and Mountains to attack the people.
Amidst the despair, a celestial maiden descended from the moon.
This maiden used her mysterious powers to seal the Wicked God in a single scroll...
And thus, the world once again returned to tranquility.
The celestial maiden remained in this realm to guard the sealed scroll.
Ages had passed, and an era called the “Heian” had arrived.
Among the descendants of the celestial maiden were two princesses. They were twin sisters—one named Kaguya, and the other named Sakuya.
They were destined to one day inherit the duty of keeping the Wicked God sealed within the scroll.
One day, the younger twin Sakuya was lured by a mysterious voice, and was led deep into the sealed scroll.
Kaguya leaped right into the sealed scroll in order to rescue her sister...
Princess Kaguya Legend of the Moon Warrior is a good looking beat em up but the gameplay and controls don't hold up well. Both the in game and cutscene art is good and the music is ok but once you start playing the controls are not responsive enough and the enemies themselves aren't fun to fight. Cutscenes are not able to be skipped which can also be annoying. Fighting feels unresponsive and the animation takes too long to complete which can make you feel like you are stuck longer in place for longer than you would expect. If you get it for a low price you might find it worth it it but the actual gameplay isn't worth the normal price point.
It's difficult for me to see what Princess Kaguya tries to be, it's somewhat of an Odin Sphere clone connected with beat'em up but sadly the game failed in so many ways. I would recommend the developer to get a copy of Cadillacs and Dinosaurs to see how good game of this genre should play like. Legend of the Moon Warrior suffers from poor hit response and floaty controls that kill the fun this title could bring.
Reminiscent of the Street Fighter games, Princess Kaguya is another title that I'm proud to have purchased. Graphically, this game is outstanding and the animations are fluid and look great. The gameplay is your traditional beat 'em up, but the Japanese setting and inclusion of mythical creatures make this stand out from other titles in the genre. Last but not least, the bosses provide a hearty challenge and will provide you with some memorable battles. Go on, give this game a shot!
