  • 108 Blades – Search and forge new deadly weapons and build an inventory of up to 108 blades. Each blade has a unique special ability. Equip yourself with these deadly blades and become more powerful as your foes close in on you! 
  • Purchase Additional DLC Characters – Play in four additional scenarios as different characters!
