Tecmo Koei has revealed new characters and released a new video for Samurai Warriors 4.
In addition, the developer is celebrating the game’s 10th anniversary. Here is what they had to say:
Samurai Warriors was conceived around this time as a spinoff of the Dynasty Warriors series. In February 2004, the first ever Samurai Warriors launched on PS2. There was a lot of excitement and hype for the title and the game sold more than one million copies in its first month of release in Japan, establishing Samurai Warriors as a key franchise for Koei Tecmo.
The game has grown steadily since, and for every new installment, new characters have been added making it a popular talking point amongst the fans. For Samurai Warriors 4, we listened to the feedback from our loyal fans and decided to not only add new characters, but also update favorites from the series including Yoshitugu Otani, Toshiie Maeda, Aya, and others.
Today, we introduced the characters Takatora Todo, Kagakatsu Uesugi, and Munenori Yagyu who join the cast of new warriors that includes Lady Hawakawa, Naotora Ii, Takakage Kobayakawa, Kojuro Katakura, Koshosho, Hisahide Matasunaga, Yoshitsugu Otani, Nobuyuki Sanada, and Toshisa Shimazu.
Speaking about the evolution of the series, in addition to new characters, we always strive for an ever-evolving battle system to create the most exhilarating combat possible. In Samurai Warriors 4, some examples include Hyper Attacks which combine rapid movement on the battlefield with high-powered attacks, deadly finishing moves with Mighty Strikes, and the ability to switch between characters in real-time, broadening gameplay within the massive map that awaits players.
Take a look at the new battle trailer below:
Samurai Warriors 4 launches on October 21st for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Are you looking forward to playing?
