 Dead Rising Dead Rising 2 Case West/Off the Record Dead Rising 3 


Not to be confused with the katana.

The katana sword is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

The katana has a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands. It is historically associated with the samurai of feudal Japan and has become renowned for its sharpness and strength.

Two swords are obtainable after the twins Amber and Crystal are defeated during Case 4-1: The Source. The swords respawn every time the player enters the Yucatan Casino.

Trivia[]

  • Despite being called a katana, it doesn't have any design similarities to a real katana (e.g. the weapon's blade is not curved upward in just a single direction).
  • The Dead Rising 2 Prima Official Game Guide lists this weapon as having "4 slicing swing attacks and a jump attack."
  • The Katana Sword bears a slight resemblance to the weapon Tenso from the game Onimusha 3: Demon Siege.
