Edge of Destiny takes place in Japan in the year 1791. The game pulls from characters throughout the franchise, which means you have a very healthy collection of samurai, ninja, feisty princesses, old men and a bunch of other crazy fighters. Edge of Destiny is actually one of the most recently released Samurai Shodown games in Japan, having been developed by K2 (which has since been acquired by Capcom). Edge of Destiny is very different from other entries in the franchise, as the game uses 3D character models and backgrounds. The game is also, surprisingly, a 360 exclusive. Intriguing.
