Two swords remain planted in the ground, awaiting the final duel between the nefarious Retsudo Yagyu and the masterless samurai Itto Ogami. Yagyu, imprisoned in the castle of the shogun, deceives his way to freedom and commands the very last members of the Yagyu ninja to kill Ogami. But knowing swords alone won't be enough against the formidable Lone Wolf, Yagyu sends a most unconventional weapon to the battlefield: the exploding ninja!
