First samurai, and now Yaiba (blade, as in related to sword) Kusanagi (legendary japanese sword)...

What exactly does Japan have to do with this game, anyway?

"The genre was a product of the 1980s and covered post cold war anxieties. One was that america would be replaced as a global power by Japan. This is rather quaint in the years post the japanese economic crash of the 1990s but it is genre appropriate

Basically japan of the 1980s is china of now in speculative fiction"
