The Battle of Andor VIII: Samurai Showdown!
Treachery! Dishonor! Lots and lots of angry faces and yelling!
The land is in turmoil! The Shogun is dead, killed by a Ninja's poisoned dart! The Emperor is powerless as the Daimyo fight to claim the title. One Daimyo, more ambitious and driven than the rest, seeks to prove his loyalty to the Emperor by claiming the head of the Ninja Grand Master. The Samurai army has traveled deep into the mountains, to the heart of the Ninja lands, and up to the very steps of the Ninja Temple! Will this be the end of the Ninja Clan? What dark powers lie hidden in the Ninja Temple? Will there be any real fighting, or will everyone be too busy doing dramatic, cool poses!?
