The fierce battle for Awaji Island begins now! With the appearance of the almighty Kishin, the land of Hinomoto is now dominated by oni, instead of humans.

After obtaining the only weapons capable of killing oni, the Kitetsu Blades, they took the first big step towards their dream. In Harima, Musashi’s group will meet the massive group of Uesugi Bushi and their leader Uesugi Tatsuomi. They have gathered to slay the giant Kishin who threatens to devour Awaji Island: Yamata no Orochi, the Artillery Wyrm. Joining them are Takeda Naotora and the Takeda Bushi, as well as several Bushi of the same age as Musashi such as Shimazu Akihiro and Amako Katsumi. There is also the slightly sheltered and shy princess, Saruwatari Michiru. As different agendas swirl and interact, Musashi and his friends join the hunt for Kishin. Yamata no Orochi is an unstoppable Demon God who has never been scratched before. And so, the fiercest battle of all begins…
