Famitsu explains Mononofu, the player character, gets to choose different weapons. Pick the long sword and your warrior will have a slashing attack. The bow gives you a piercing attack, gloves deal crushing blows, and the kusarigama (sickle and chain weapon) has a slicing and crushing attack.
Players can call on Mitaya (spirits) that hold different fighting styles.
Minamoto no Yorimitsu (Attack)
Hijikata Toshizo (Defense)
Sei Shonagon (Healing)
Toukiden also has special abilities like the Eye of the Oni, which lets you see weaknesses and conceled objects on the field. You also have an "Oni Vow" which is like a super special attack.
