Jump into wacky-chaotic battles with lightning-fast, yet accessible gameplay in this unique 2D action-brawler. Master the battlefield by levelling up your warriors into true legends and using their unique special moves and weapons to take down the wicked sorcerer and save the galaxy!
Containing the soul of a powerful demon, the legendary Kusanagi Stone can grand godly powers to those who awaken it but has remained hidden over the centuries. Now, the wicked sorcerer Origami, destroyer of worlds and lord of darkness, has summoned ancient warriors to find the stone for him, cursing their souls and turning them into animals in the process.
Luckily, a mysterious monk called Ramen manages to save four warrior souls from Origami’s call: Hero, Baby, Jazz, and Aros, together are the Jitsu Squad!
Jitsu Squad is a fast-paced fighting game inspired by old-school brawlers from the 90s, paired with the exciting fights of modern beat ‘em ups that remains true to the age-old rule: easy to learn, hard to master. Control the entire Jitsu Squad in single-player mode, play with up to 4 people in local couch co-op, or use the Tag Team Mode to save the galaxy from Origami’s evil plans.
