Official Fact Sheet:
Two additional fighting modes accompany the music-combo combat system, the visually arresting “Tate” and “Trance.” When the tension gauge (fueled by a series of successful combos) is filled, the gamer will enter in “Tate” mode where the samurai is faced with a lone opponent artfully staged in front of a vibrant Japanese screen. After initiating a combination of buttons to stay in “Tate,” the gamer can fulfill a hit meter to enter into “Trance.” At this point, the background changes to silhouettes and an unrelenting number of enemies will attack the player. The player must survive and cut down opponents without taking a number of hits until the music ends. If the player survives, he is rewarded with a new item or weapon. With these innovative modes, “Samurai Champloo” is an original action title that melds hip hop attitude with the lyricism of the samurai warrior.
