2012 Dream.Build.Play entrant, x35mm have confirmed that their side-scrolling Indie title, Dawn of the Ronin should be released on XBLIG before the end of the year.

The winner that year was the excellent One Finger Death Punch and this is very much in the same vein.

You take on the role of a disgraced samurai with a storyline based around the historical siege of Osaka in the 16th century. It’s looking great, and features a plethora of deadly enemies, Japanese-inspired audio, level bosses and new locations from the original trailer.


They’ve also given us a sneak peek at the title menu, and it too is looking pretty fine.


It should hopefully be out soon and we’ll try to keep you updated on it’s progress.
