Description: Kaze no Yojimbo

Based on the classic Akira Kurasawa flick, Kaze no Yojimbo brings a new and modernized spin to the classic Samurai tale. A mysterious young drifter named George Kodama finds himself in the town of Kimujuku while in search of a man known as Araki Genzo.

After bearing witness to his fighting skills, George is hired as a bodyguard for a prominent father's daughter. However, he learns that the seemingly peaceful town is a deceptive cover, and quickly learns that he's an unwelcome guest.

Kimujuku hides a mysteriously dark past and is home to two warring criminal syndicates that are terrorizing the streets. Now, George must fight to survive and attempt to solve the mysteries surrounding the town of Kimujuku.
