The Usagi Yojimbo Role-Playing Game is an American role-playing game based on Stan Sakai's Eisner-award winning comic-book series Usagi Yojimbo. The game is written by Jason Holmgren and Pieter van Hiel, published by Sanguine Productions in 2005.[1]

The game is set in a fantasy version of Japan in the Edo period (beginning of the 17th century) and uses a heavily modified variant of the systems used in Sanguine Productions' other role-playing games Ironclaw, Jadeclaw, and Albedo: Platinum Catalyst.[2]

In late October 2006, a version of the game translated into Spanish was released.[3]
