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'├ętat 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.

Some weapons/armour have "symbols" which indicate the effect it has. When you synthesise a weapon with an "Empty" symbol with a weapon which has an effect symbol, the weapon takes that effect. For example, synthesising a sword with an empty symbol with the Matsukaze sword (which has the "Endurance" symbol) will fill the empty symbol of the base weapon with the "Endurance" effect from the Matsukaze symbol. This is good for customising weapons/armour to give it the effects you want.
