What is Tsujikiri?
Tsujikiri is a Japanese-style sword-fighting game based on Sekiro and inspired by ZO. The game is fast-paced and requires quick reflexes and good timing.
How to Play Tsujikiri
To play Tsujikiri, you will need to create a Roblox account and download the game. Once you have done that, you can start playing by spawning into a map.
Upon spawning into a map, you’ll be able to choose three weapons that you can use to defend yourself. Some common weapons available to you are Katana, Odachi (heavy sword), and Naginta (spear).
Following are some tools that you get as a beginner:
Burning Powered Ashes:
It deals fire damage to enemies, slowly draining their health. Here’s how to get your hands on this tool:
- Head to the DILAPIDATED SHRINE and chat with the NPC there. They’ll set you on your path to acquiring the Burning Powered Ashes.
- Once you’ve completed the task they give you, head over to TOMOE’S WELL and speak to another NPC. They’ll reward you with Prayer bread that you’ll need for the next step.
- With the Prayer breads in hand, make your way to the CAVERN and use them to pray. This will transport you to the AMBER BATTLEFIELD.
- In the AMBER BATTLEFIELD, find the STATUE and pray near it. This will summon a powerful boss, the Tatsuhime Worn Warrior.
- Prepare for a challenging battle, as this boss has two phases. It’s recommended to face this boss with friends for backup.
- Once you’ve defeated the Tatsuhime Worn Warrior, you’ll gain access to sub tools and weapons, including the Burning Powered Ashes skill.
By default you will get these handy little items that will stun your enemies and send them scrambling with a shockwave, giving you the perfect opportunity to land some powerful blows. Firecrackers are your go-to tool for crowd control and creating openings in battle.
This nifty item will patch you up by regenerating your health in no time to keep you in the fight. You can find these lifesavers hidden away in TOMOE’S WELL.
Tips for Beginners
Here are a few tips for beginners:
- Practice your parrying: Parrying is one of the most important skills in Tsujikiri. It allows you to block your opponent’s attacks and take no damage.
- Learn how to execute: Executing is a way to deal a lot of damage to your opponent in a short amount of time.
- Be aware of your surroundings: The maps in Tsujikiri are often large and complex. Be aware of your surroundings so that you can avoid being ambushed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Tsujikiri:
Is there any development going on in the game?
Yes, Tsujikiri is an open development game. This means that developers are not financially motivated and progress is ongoing. Due to the game being solely ran on the community, progress may vary in pace.
How does posture work?
Your posture is represented by a yellow bar above your toolbar. You cannot see your opponent’s posture bar. You will REGAIN posture (lower the bar) by a slow gradual basis overtime, parrying incoming attacks (perfect timing) and execution kills. You will LOSE posture (heighten the bar) by getting attacked by Katana’s R move or blocking incoming attacks (slightly off-timed).
When your posture is BROKEN (the bar is full), you will be inactionable for a few seconds and your opponent can execute you (deal a varying large amount of damage with an animation).
Are there exceptions to parrying?
Yes, there are some exceptions to parrying. For example, you cannot parry fireworks (they will blind you), Odachi’s R swing (meaning you must dodge this), or executions (as you are inactionable).
Additionally, you cannot parry ashes subtool (gained from a boss), and if you attempt to you will be burned anyways.
How do I execute someone?
An execution is followed after your opponent’s posture is broken. When their posture is broken a red glowing dot will appear on them. Simply go behind them during this period and press M1 and it’ll do a set amount of damage to the opponent based on the weapon.
How do I get boss drops (or Jumonji, for example)?
Bosses are NPCs that are exceptionally bulkier in health and have a marginally bigger character than anyone else. These drops will happen if you are actively participating in a fight and remain in the area they spawned in.
After you have officially slain it, you may reset to see your new weapon in the weapon selection screen.
How do I meet/spawn Eichi Kaze?
You cannot. A developer can spawn him, but he is not completely integrated into the game yet. He exists, but not obtainable nor does it contain a drop as of now. But please do not burden the developers to spawn it for you, the best thing is to wait until bosses like them are fully completed.
