If you see any item with "(SS)" label, then it only appears in Sega Saturn version.
For each weapon, these labels in description identify a certain control pattern:
  • (A): Down dpad then Right dpad then attack button.
  • (B): Left dpad then Right dpad then attack button.
  • (C): Press both attack buttons at the same time, with correct item in the other hand.
Your final ATT will receive a penalty of -50% STR if actual STR is lower than weapon ATT. For the weapons with variable ATT value, they use their basic ATT value to calculate, which means that weapons like Muramasa (-5) and Badelaire (0) will not have penalty.


Items: 9 in PS version and 10 in SS version.
