D3 Publisher describes the story
SAMURAI MAIDEN is the story of a high-school student who falls asleep after boring history lessons. Upon awakening, Nobunaga Oda (the first great unifier of Japan) awakens. They find themselves in the Honnoji Temple, where the underworld has opened. Tsumugi, who has been trained in sword fighting as a hobby is put to the test when she is given the evil warding knife by Nobunaga Oda. He steps into the underworld in an attempt to end the calamity. Even Tsumugi, a admittedly poor history student recognizes Oda and knows she must take part in this extraordinary occasion.
Three ninjas will be featured in the game: Iyo, an older Hagane who has a mechanical body and Komimi, also known as The Gogake. The “Gokage System” is a combination of Tsumugi’s sword style and The Gokage’s Ninjutsu. You will also have unlockable special abilities.
