Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked gives you the hip-hop feel and swordfighting action of the hit TV series. Breathe life into a "lost episode" of the show, as one of three playable characters: Mugen, a reckless samurai with break-dancing fighting style, calculated Jin who abides by the decorum of Bushido, and a mysterious new character exclusive to the video game. Travel through the northern land of Ezo (current day Hokkaido) in search of "the samurai who smells of sunflowers" - as you play, face foreign mercenaries, master swordsmen, diabolical assassins, mythical beasts, and gangster monkeys. The core of the game's unique combat system lies in the innovative integration of music and linked attacks. The players can choose an array of combos based on the different hip hop grooves that they can swap at will. Music tracks become collectible, opening an extensive assortment of linked attacks that can be implemented tactically during combat.
