One of the many games we’ve covered on the Nintendo eShop in Japan is Nimble Sakura Warrior, released last week. This game is headed to the U.S. in January — Nintendo of America announced it as Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword.


In Sakura Samurai, you play as a young warrior out to save a princess from the enemy’s castle. There isn’t a Goomba in sight, though; Sakura Samurai is set in medieval Japan. You watch for enemies to attack, block their sword, then attack with your own. A town allows you to stock up on items, upgrade your sword, and earn money.


Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword doesn’t have a concrete release date that has been announced yet, or a price; just that it’s coming in January. You can read more about it here.
