The protagonist, Tobimaru, lives in a world of battles between ninja clans, each of which keeps an orb with special powers. His clan was attacked in his absence with many killed and injured. He lost some of his friends and family, and goes on a journey to gain the special powers of other clans by defeating their protectors and better prepare for future battles. Being the orb protector, he is a hero in his clan but is actually no different to the attackers in the bigger picture. During the course of the journey, will he realise he is just as evil as the attackers to his clan?
The Legend of Tobimaru is Mushin Games first game with beautifully crafted pixel art graphics and a in-depth fighting mechanism.
