MPact Games has released a new developer diary video for Hanako: Honor & Blade. The indie hack and slash game is scheduled to launch sometime this year.
In the new developer diary video the developers of the game discuss their progress as they are working on getting the game available through early access. The new video shows new gameplay footage and also shows the night version of one of the game's multiplayer maps Village.
In the game players can choose from four different classes: Kenshi, Naginatashi, Ite and Ninja as they battle against opposing teams for several different objectives.
Every level included in the game is designed to present unique obstacles and mechanics which will require strategy and teamwork to deceive your enemies, including flammable cover and forested areas that conceal the player's visibility.
The game is built upon Unreal Engine 4 and is expected to feature several maps, four different game modes and multiplayer for up to 24 players.
The game successfully went through Steam's Greenlight program several years ago and its developers have recently hinted towards a fall 2017 release for the PC version of the game.
