Story Mode

The game is set in the Shimabara Peninsula in the southern Japanese region of Kyushu. Your goal is to make your way through the peninsula, defeating the numerous foes who stand in your path, and ultimately defeat Shiro Tokisada Amakusa.

Time Limits and Rivals

The opening movie as you start the game will display the Time Limit set for your character and introduce you to your character’s rival. The Time Limit indicates the amount of time you have to defeat Amakusa before your rival gets to him. Arriving at Amakusa Castle after you’ve reached your Time Limit will see your rival defeating him instead, so try to get there in time! To see the Time Limits for each character, see the Characters section further down.
