Set in the 16th century, the game revolves around a pair of twin swords full of evil spirits and 8 people who seek them: Hwang - a Korean warrior who wants to use the swords to save his country from invasion Rock - a "white giant" in America who thinks the swords will restore memories of his parents. Taki - a Japanese ninja who wants to destroy the swords because they are weakening her current weapon Sophitia - a Greek Valkyrie who is being sent by Hephaestus to destroy the swords. Mitsurugi - a samurai-assassin who wants to use the swords as a weapon to challenge guns Li Long - a Chinese loner who thinks the swords will bring his dead wife back Seigfried - a German knight who believes the wielder of the swords killed his father Seung Mina - a Korean tomboy who wants to prove her independence to her father Voldo - a mute Italian who is being sent after the swords by his master's ghost Cervantes - a Spanish pirate who is in possession of the swords

I never had such an easy victory.
The original Japanese version of the opening sequence featured a shot of Sophitia swimming in a lake in the nude, only to jump up out of the water when she sees a giant statue raise from below. However, aside from slight visibility of her buttocks, there was no visible nudity as she covers her breasts as she rises from the water. The scene was re-rendered for the US release with her wearing a tight white one-piece bathing suit. See more
