A great classic, now with more flavor options!

Reviewed By: Red Soul on 30 Jun 2022

I’m not going to lie. I have a strong nostalgia for this game, and, despite some annoying mechanical wrinkles, I think it aged wonderfully both in regards to graphics and music.

What this patch does is give players the option to utilize the graphics the Korean version had (historical precedents cast samurai and the Japanese in general under an unfavorable light for much of Korea’s history, putting it mildly) into other versions, thus increasing the amount of visual customization the player has access to.

While I don’t personally agree with the author that the Korean warrior outfit looks necessarily better, it is, nevertheless very nice, and Kenseiden deserves as much love as it can get.
