Samurai Warriors 4-II and Chronicles 3 Are Headed to the West
If you were yearning from some brand new Samurai Warriors to play, then you are a happy camper today. Two new Warriors games will be making their way out of Japan this year.
The first, Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3, will be available exclusively on the 3DS and PS Vita, and will release on June 24 in Europe, with a future release planned for other regions. The 3DS version even comes with a Zelda-styled costume, an obvious ode to Hyrule Warriors.
The next game, and possibly the bigger of the two, Samurai Warriors 4-II will release for PC, PS3, PS4, and PS Vita; the game will arrive September 29 in the US, and October 2 in Europe. The Ps4 version will be sold physically, with the other three being available only through digital means.
In case you were unaware of what Samurai Warriors 4-II was, here’s a nice little description from the folks at Koei Tecmo:
Samurai Warriors 4-II is a hero-focused saga. Unlike the previous Samurai Warriors games that focused on delivering their narrative by exploring the various regions of feudal Japan, this title casts a spotlight on the characters themselves and tells their stories through 13 exciting new chapters. These chapters revolve around nine characters introduced in Samurai Warriors 4, three fan-favorites from previous titles and a brand new addition to the samurai roster.
The game will feature many new and improved features as the battle, action and character development systems have been revamped. It also introduces a highly challenging and richly rewarding mode called: the Endless Castle. Players can choose to enter and struggle to survive for as long as possible, or to play against the clock and see how far they can get up the castle’s increasingly difficult levels!
If you happen to be in London and a big Samurai Warriors fan, the game is playable at this weeks MCM London Expo.
