Last month, publisher D3 announced that it would be bringing the hack ‘n slash ninja schoolgirl samurai girl to the Nintendo Switch this winter.

Now, according to Tokyo Game Show, a release date is locked in. The game will arrive in Japan (physically and digitally) on December 1 and will follow with a digital-only release in the West on December 8 this year.

The story follows school student Tsumigi Tamaori who is summoned from her sleep to the historical period of Sengoku. Here she must team up with new friends and use her incredible sword skills to defeat the evil of the undead at Honnoji Temple:

SAMURAI MAIDEN follows the story of a high school student who falls asleep after a boring day of history class, waking up alongside historical figure, Nobunaga Oda, known as Japan’s first great unifier. The two end up at the burning Honnoji Temple where the underworld opened up. Having trained in the art of sword fighting as a hobby, Tsumugi is suddenly put to the test in real battle as she receives the evil protection blade from the desperate Nobunaga Oda, who enters the underworld to end the calamity. Even Tsumugi, an admittedly poor history student, recognizes Oda as the hero of the Sengoku period and understands that she must rise to this strange occasion.”

Players can expect to “slay mobs of undead enemies” with Tsumugi’s sword skills – ranging from combo attacks to powerful counters. She will also have help from other ninjas and allies along the way.

There will be special abilities to unlock and a system that also allows these fighting styles to be combined:

“During their journey, players will be able to utilize the ‘Gokage System’, which allows for a rapid combination of Tsumugi’s sword style and Gokage’s powerful ninjutsu. From the slashing and piercing attacks of samurai to the showdown of ninjas, freezing yin yang jutsu and various kunai attacks, players will be able to use these two types of attacks to fight through the hoard of undead enemies.”
