    Based on the legendary Akira Kurosawa classic epic feature film, The Seven Samurai.

    The once impenetrable band of seven, now diminished to six, was forced to come to terms with the inevitable when Gorobei risked his life to save his brethren. With sword in hand, Kambei is determined to find answers. Leaving the surviving samurai behind, Kambei departs on a solitary trek, with an even more perilous mission in mind.

    After a confrontation with the Emperor lands him in prison, Kambei awaits his fate as the purported assassin of the Imperial Envoy. But, turmoil at the Capital is far from over. Ukyo`s sudden rise to power has put Kambei at his mercy, and sparing his life is not what this scheming Emperor has in mind.
