With its fast-paced matching gameplay, you’ll guide Musashi as he eats various kinds of sushi while attacking with the plates and saving his village.
Sushi Striker – Official Game Trailer
In a world where there are no fish, people survive on apples. An orphaned boy seeks to feed everyone with sushi, which is confiscated by the Republic that runs the world. Recruited by a Sushi Sprite, the magical creature seeks to train Musashi in the way of the Sushido, help rescue his friend from the Republic, and feed his village. Sushi Striker features single-player levels, multiple Sushi Sprites to choose from, and even a catchy opening theme song!
The Way of Sushido
The gameplay of Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is best compared to Dragon Ball: Dokkan Battle or Tales of Link, which were released for mobile devices. If you’re not familiar with either title, the point of winning battles involves using a touch screen to match colors and fling the attacks back at your opponent. In the vain of games, like Puyo Puyo Tetris, progression takes place stage-by-stage. Sushi Striker utilizes cute, anime-styled artwork, over-the-top dialogue, and cutscenes. When you get to a new level, you’ll fight rivals on the way through each world you battle through.
In the demo, the game walks you through the tutorial and allows you to engage on your own battles first. As mentioned before, you can use the touch-screen when playing in handheld mode. You can also use standard controls, using the left analog stick, when docked or when using the touch screen as well. The game lets you make it your call.
The game paces itself quickly, getting you into the action with no more than an opening cutscene. Its gameplay involves teasing your appetite with delicious, cartoon sushi. As Musashi, you eat the plates of sushi while matching colored plates. Depending on the familiar, or Sushi Sprite, you’re set with, you can unleash a wide variety of abilities. With the first sprite, for instance, you can match all plates as the same color, boosting your score immensely. You can then send all plates back into your rival.
The Sushi Striker demo takes up one world and roughly an hour to clear. Check out Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido when it releases Nintendo Switch and 3DS on June 8, 2018.
