Curse of the Katana connects feudal Japan with the chaos of modern times to spark an unforgettable tale of love, tragedy, sacrifice, and the never ending pursuit of power. The curse was borne from the forbidden love between legendary Samurai Warrior (Shin’Ichi) and the beautiful Princess (Rina), he was sworn to protect.
Their doomed love sets forth an adventure for young Connor to learn how and why he is connected with this Katana and what he must do to keep it from the hands of the evil Warlord Ryuu and the mysterious half-being Shadow Warrior Takehiko from conquering the world.
