Hanako – Soul of the Samurai is generally meant as a strategic multiplayer samurai game set in Feudal Japan. So far, the Kickstarter is about 10% funded but a joke mode revealed today might give the campaign some much-needed attention.
Titled “Samurai Pillow Fight Mode,” Hanako – Soul of the Samurai changes from a mostly serious affair into something much goofier. Instead of swords each combatant is armed with a giant pillow which emanates feathers when hit. The samurai also all giggle in their masculine voices for an added touch.
Your only way to try this mode out is to download the Hanako – Soul of the Samurai demo from the Kickstarter page on April 1. Here’s a video of “Samurai Pillow Fight Mode” in action:
