It is the dawn of the Showa era, Japan in the 1930s. In a rural manor, a very long night is about to begin.

Kwaidan ~Azuma manor story~ mixes classic 3D horror action with point-and-click adventure for an experience that’s equal parts fresh and nostalgic. With no guns, strategy is required to take on the Yoki in close encounters using traditional weapons and exorcism tools such as naginata, magatama and a mirror that releases a deadly aura.
As you explore the grounds of the mansion, you can call up a cursor to examine points of interest and discover items to aid you in your quest. Kwaidan ~Azuma manor story~ is a unique blend of action-adventure with suspenseful survival scenarios. Retro polygon graphics invoke the style of genre classics with movie reel presentation. Select between Origin Mode for authentic “tank” controls or Modern Mode for standard analog movement and a new subtle cel-shaded look.
