Throwback Ad Tuesday! InuYasha: A Feudal Fairy Tale PS1
Developed by Dimps and published by Bandai, InuYasha: A Feudal Fairy Tale was released in Japan for the original PlayStation in December 2002. The was brought over to the US in April 2003.
One of the more memorable titles released in the PS1's twilight years, InuYasha: A Feudal Fairy Tale was a fighting game that featured 2D hand-drawn graphics and a two-player tag team mechanic. The plot (as much as can be expected from a fighting game) followed the premise of the manga/anime where our heroes fight it out to retrieve the Shikon jewel shards.
As expected, all the main characters are here, like InuYasha, Kagome, Sango, Miroku, and Shippo. There's a host of unlockable characters too, such as Naraku, Sesshomaru, Koga, Kikyo, Kagura, Totosai, and even demon InuYasha.
The combat wasn't as in-depth as, say, Street Fighter or Dead or Alive, but fans of the anime will definitely find it worth a playthrough, especially considering the limited number of InuYasha games available.
