[Samurai Bringer] Show off your favored Samurai in our upcoming Samurai Showdown!

Samurai Bringer is a Japanese Rogue-lite Action Game that was released on April 21st.

Even though over 1,000 Japanese Legends (Samurai, Generals, Ninjas, etc) appear in the game and about 140 Brave Generals, we fear that we still may have left out some fan favorites. If that's the case, we have exciting news for you!

We are holding a Samurai Showdown competition to scope out and see which venerable Legends deserve to be promoted!

10 selected Samurai (Generals) from the submissions will be promoted to Brave Generals!

Come and show off thy favorite Samurai (Generals)!

How to Apply

On Twitter, post the name of the Samurai who you think deserves to be promoted along with why they deserve to be promoted! Don’t forget to add the hashtags, #SamuraiShowdown and #SamuraiBringer.

What you need to apply:

  • Name of your favored Samurai
  • Showcase something that represents why your Samurai deserves to climb the ranks to Brave General. It can be one word or sentences, illustrations, videos, etc. *Submissions must be original works.

If Twitter isn't enough and you would like to expand your showcase, please fill out this Google Form!

In the Google Form you can even add:

  • Dialogue phrases when they enter the field (2 lines of 25 characters max)
  • Dialogue phrases when they retreat (2 lines of 25 characters max)
  • Suggestions like 3D models (including front and back details), images of skills, actions, attributes, etc

And more!

Please refrain from using the Brave Generals in the list below.

List of prohibited Brave Generals.

*Samurai (Generals) that show up in the game can be entered for a chance to be promoted!

Fun fact,「武将」(read bushō) means General or Military Commander. 

・They are people who played an active role on the battlefield in Japanese history (Most of them existed sometime in history. However, ficticious characters aside, some of them may not have even existed!)


Behold! Minamoto no Yoshitsune!

In response to fan demand, we are bringing Minamoto no Yoshitsune into Samurai Bringer as a Brave General!

Similarly, your favorite Samurai can even make it into the game as a Brave General!

All you have to do is test your might and favor your Samurai today!

Submissions that impress the developer, Alphawing, will go on to be selected! *Not Majority Rule based
