To unlock slash mode you simply have to get eight of the twelve supporting characters. It does not matter which ones.
Bushido Blade's basic concept - realistic
Japanese sword fighting without life-meters,
time limits, or artificially small arenas - remains
the same as in the original Bushido Blade.
Matches end only when a fatal blow is struck
by one opponent.
Beyond that, though, almost everything else
from the first game has changed. The control
scheme is entirely new. It's deeper and
slightly more complex, and should appeal
more to fans of traditional fighting games.
Also, colored flashes now indicate the result
of clashes: whether an attack was successful
(orange), minor (green), blocked (blue), or
fatal (a satisfying spray of red).
The plot focuses on the 800-year-long battle
between two Japanese sword fighting
schools, and while there are only six
selectable characters at the begining of the
game, 16 more characters can be unlocked in story mode. The story mode is
longer and features more combat (and more story) than the original.
Although some of the elegance and simplicity of the original is lost in
sequel, the new depth of the game more than makes up for it.
