Mahokenshi Releases Tomorrow!

Greetings Samurai,



After a long time in the making, we are very excited to finally let you get to experience Mahokenshi!

Tomorrow is the big day. Are you prepared to push back against the corruption and fight to save the Celestial Islands? Together with your allies, you can make the difference between a new hope and total annihilation.

See what time the game will be releasing in your country:

TurnbasedFest Is Here — Kaito Returns!

Greetings Samurai,

The turnbased fest is here!

Who needs the stress of battling without taking your time and planning your turns in peace? The Turn-based fest is a celebration of these types of games, and Mahokenshi is no different.

Put yourself in the shoes of a Mahokenshi in our new Demo. Whether you want to wear the heavy armor of Kaito or sprout your wings like Ayaka, you are needed to save the celestial island of the forces of corruption.

Find out more about Kaito, our armored juggernaut, below!



Playstyle


Unlike the other Mahokenshi, Kaito prefers being surrounded by his opponents. Although he has multiple deck archetypes and synergies, most of them revolve around stacking defense.

Spikes




The best offense is a good defense. Kaito can stack Spikes, icy thorns that hurt enemy attackers, even from afar!

Charge




Kaito does not dash like other Mahokenshi. Instead, his primary movement option is to Charge towards his opponent. A Charge will allow Kaito to take the shortest possible path to his enemy, even dashing across water.

First Strike / Prepared




Some of Kaito's cards will have First Strike and Prepared effects. These cards will have different effects depending on when you play them within your turn, forcing you to think carefully about the order in which you play them.

Provoke




Charging isn't the only way to get close to enemies. With his Provoke cards, Kaito can force enemies to move into striking distance.



Play the updated demo during TurnbasedFest, and make sure you check out the event page to play some more incredible demos!

If you're already a weathered samurai, welcome back! If this is your first time here: Mahokenshi is a unique blend of adventure, strategy, and deckbuilding gameplay. Choose the right samurai mage for every mission, build your deck out of dozens of powerful cards, and defeat the Oni King's hordes.

New Demo! Join The House of Jade 🕷

Greetings, Samurai!

We're very excited to bring back our demo, this time with a brand new Mahokenshi to play. Take control of Sota from the House of Jade, who prefers to stick to the shadows and ambush his prey at the most opportune moment.



Also, this is our first demo available in English, French, Italian , German, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese and Polish! The translations are still in the beta stage, so if you spot any errors, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Available During Paris Games Week!



The demo is available from now until November 6th, while we're at Paris Games Week. Make sure you swing by the Jeux Made In France zone if you're also attending the event!





Meet Sota


Sota is a master of trickery and deception. With his varied movement cards, he can quickly cover the battlefield while also luring enemies off their positions of strength. Below are some of his main card mechanics.

Poison


Sometimes blades aren't enough. Thankfully, Sota can employ the Ogumo's deadly Poison to damage his enemies over time. If you didn't quite get the kill in the conventional way, your poison can finish the job for you.



Kunai


Sota always has a trick up his sleeve, generally the sharp kind. His Kunai are ephemeral cards (meaning they are removed from your deck when played) that deal a small amount of damage by themselves. Fill your hand with them, however, and you can unleash death by a thousand cuts on your opponent.



Stealth


As a master of terrain, Sota can take his time setting up for the perfect kill by using his Stealth cards to ensure his enemies don't spot him before it's too late. Stealth cards are also great for dealing with groups of enemies, as only the target will aggro onto Sota.



Lure


Using the Ogumo's magic, Sota can place afterimages of himself on the battlefield. Lure cards have tons of potential uses. Use them to lure enemies away from their group, off beneficial terrain, or to cover your escape.



So what are you waiting for? Take control of the master of deception and play the new Mahokenshi demo today! Let us know what you think of Sota on the forums, or join the community on Discord!


PLAY The Mahokenshi Demo During Tacticon!

Greetings Mahokenshi!

We are very excited to announce that the Mahokenshi demo returns during the Tacticon Steam event (Sept 22-26)! In the demo, you will be able to play as Kaito for the first time ever. The Mahokenshi from the House of Sapphire is sturdy and powerful, charging at his enemies like an unstoppable juggernaut.



Playstyle


As this is the first time Kaito is playable, let's talk about his playstyle for a bit. Unlike the other Mahokenshi, Kaito prefers being surrounded by his opponents. Although he has multiple deck archetypes and synergies, most of them revolve around stacking defense.

Spikes




The best offense is a good defense. Kaito can stack Spikes, icy thorns that hurt enemy attackers, even from afar!

Charge




Kaito does not dash like other Mahokenshi. Instead, his primary movement option is to Charge towards his opponent. A Charge will allow Kaito to take the shortest possible path to his enemy, even dashing across water.


First Strike / Prepared




Some of Kaito's cards will have First Strike and Prepared effects. These cards will have different effects depending on when you play them within your turn, forcing you to think carefully about the order in which you play them.

Provoke




Charging isn't the only way to get close to enemies. With his Provoke cards, Kaito can force enemies to move into striking distance.



Kaito has plenty more synergies and archetypes for you to explore. Become a Mahokenshi today by downloading the demo during Tacticon (until Sept 26th), and let us know what you think on the Steam forums, or join the community on Discord!

Our hour-long segment will be on Saturday September 3rd on the PAX Twitch channel at 1 PM PT / 10 PM CEST. You can take a look at the Steam sidebar to see that time converted to your local timezone.

Mahokenshi - NEW Trailer + Release Window

Samurai!

We're back with another update from the Celestial Islands. Last time, we mentioned that Mahokenshi would be releasing in 2023. We're excited to announce that we can now give you a more specific window, as Mahokenshi will be releasing in January 2023!



Those of you who tested Mahokenshi in its earlier stages, or follow us on social media, may have already gotten a good peek at the gameplay of Ayaka, the Mahokenshi from the House of Ruby. In our brand new trailer, you can get a closer look at all four houses and their different playstyles.



So, which of the four Mahokenshi do you like most? You can expect some more clips of Sota from the House of Jade on our socials and Discord in the coming weeks, so make sure you're following us if you enjoy sneaky and poison-focused gameplay!

That's all from us today! Let us know your favorite samurai below, and join the community on Discord!

Mahokenshi — Coming 2023!

Samurai, a cool new breeze has reached the Celestial Islands.

We know you've been eager to hear more Mahokenshi news, and we're here to deliver!

We're excited to announce that we have partnered with Iceberg Interactive, an indie publisher with quite a bit of experience in publishing strategy games. Together we will be bringing you Mahokenshi in 2023! To celebrate, we've whipped up a cool new trailer for you to check out.


We also decided not to enter Early Access before full release. We felt that it would be better to bring you the full, polished Mahokenshi experience in one go. There may be other opportunities for testing in the future, however.



And for those who are new here, welcome! Here's what you can expect from Mahokenshi:

  • Become a mighty Mahokenshi, a samurai mage, wielding both blade and magic.
  • 4 Samurai Houses, each with their own unique abilities and strengths.
  • Hone your skills and build your deck wisely. There are 200 cards to discover and countless play styles to be perfected.
  • Experience the Celestial Islands. Travel a vast array of vibrant and beautifully designed 3D maps.



So keep your blade and mind sharp for the 2023 release. Until then, join our Discord to keep up-to-date, and don’t forget to wishlist Mahokenshi.
