Kenseiden follows the story of Hayato, a samurai looking to retrieve five ability-granting scrolls and kill some evil warlocks. Normally, this involves battling through sixteen levels, the last several of which are very difficult without the abilities gained from the scrolls.

This run forgoes all but two of the scrolls and heads directly for the final round, as opposed to the 100% run which finishes all of the stages and collects all the scrolls.

While this TAS appears to be slower than the previous movie, it is in fact an improvement of 1.76 seconds when only considering time saves during the levels, resulting from better optimisation and a new strategy at the final boss.

The second set of encodes feature a re-synced version of the TAS done on the Japanese version with the FM sound. Due to the shorter boot time, the main gameplay starts about 7.35 seconds earlier.
Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
