RYU GA GOTOKU ISHIN

Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin (released in Japan in February 2014) is a spin-off game set at the end of the Edo period of Japanese history (known as the Bakumatsu period), a period when the Tokugawa Shogunate came to an end and imperial rule was restored (Meiji Restoration).

Sakamoto Ryoma is living undercover, with a false identity, as "Saito Hajime" in Kyoto. One year earlier, on the eve of the coup d'état of Tosa, Ryoma's foster father, the man who raised him, was murdered before his eyes. The only lead he had to discover who the killer was is that he used the Tennen Rishin style of fighting. This is a style used by the Shinsengumi, so Ryoma infiltrates their ranks, becoming captain of the 3rd Shinsengumi unit, in attempt to find the killer.

Below are all the abilities (except heat actions) in Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin. For a list of heat actions, visit the heat actions page

The following are the types of "souls" (used to upgrade abilities) you get in this game:

White
You get these by leveling up Ryoma. You can spend these souls in any sphere grid.

Red
You get these by leveling up the Hand-to-Hand Fighting Style. You can only spend them in the Hand-to-Hand sphere grid.

Blue
You get these by leveling up the Sword Fighting Style. You can only spend them in the Sword sphere grid.

Orange
You get these by leveling up the Pistol Fighting Style. You can only spend them in the Pistol sphere grid.

Green
You get these by leveling up the Wild Dance Fighting Style. You can only spend them in the Wild Dance sphere grid.

If you use White souls on a sphere grid, you can replace them at any time with a coloured soul (when you have a coloured soul, of course). Doing this gets you back a white soul which you can spend on another sphere grid.
