Samurai Shodown III: Blades of Blood on Arcade

They called him "The Demon." His real name, Zankuro Minazuki. From time immemorial he had indiscriminately attacked villages, slaughtering all who stood in his way. Those who faced him shrieked their final gasps and sank into eternity, enveloped by a sea of blood. No one alive could stop his evil deeds.
And then one day, it happened...
In a certain village, Zankuro failed to kill a single infant. Some insist the evil one was unable to kill him-but why? The truth remains a mystery. But from then on, Zankuro marked all those who carried a sword for slaughter.

Several years later....
Twelve samurai and swordsmen are spurred to action by their own hopes and aspirations. But all have a single objective: the head of the dreaded "Demon." The head of Zankuro Minazuki.

While it is the third game in the main series, it is the first part of a two-chapter interlude between Samurai Shodown and Samurai Shodown II. The third series of Samurai Shodown introduces 2 different techniques for each character. The "Slash" techniques are the original moves of the most of the characters whereas the "Bust" techniques the "darker" version of each character.
