A samurai looking to settle a score heads to Orient City, an unforgiving vertical tangle of rock and skyscrapers interconnected with waterways and cable cars run with an iron fist by The Dark Ronin.

'Orient City' is a samurai steampunk feature that features gorgeous hand-drawn animation mixed with lush 3D worlds filled with white-knuckle action. It features popular elements attractive to audiences worldwide as an epic good versus evil story uniquely situated amidst a world of dark secrets and mystifying lore.

A towering place, it is made up of four inhabited rocks surrounded by the infinite sea. Above the clouds, its skyscrapers give opulent ambiance for the high society while, as we go closer to sea level, buildings are jammed together and carved in the rock walls. Down here people live in poverty and constant fear of crime. They travel on boats in the murky lagoons, and above the ground they use cable cars. Traditional western haunts such as bars, brothels, barbershops and pawnshops are crammed around cable car stations.
