Here’s your first look at Katana for Infinite Crisis, the free-to-play MOBA game from Turbine.

Tatsu Toro’s idyllic, but brief, marriage came to a sudden end in a single, tragic night. Her husband, Maseo, and his twin brother, Takeo, were both members of the Sword Clan, one of the clans in the Yakuza criminal organization.

Takeo confronted his brother over a matter involving the clan and in the struggle Maseo was killed by his own sword, the Soultaker. This ancient katana, one of the clan’s relics, was said to contain the souls of those it killed among other mystical qualities. Tatsu witnessed her husband’s murder and collapsed by his body, overcome with grief. Takeo fled into the night.

When Tatsu finally came to her senses, she took up the Soultaker and swore revenge against not just Takeo, but the Yakuza and criminals everywhere. She goes by the name Katana, in honor of the sword she wields and which she believes contains the soul of her beloved husband.
