Samurai Warriors 4, the latest addition to the Samurai Warriors franchise from Tecmo Koei is set be released on October 21 this year. Omega Force?s newest crowd control hack-and-slash game will also be making its debut at E3, which is just a few days away.
The game will be available for PlayStation 3 at $49.99, PlayStation 4 for $59.99 and PlayStation Vita for $39.99. All the versions will also be available through the PlayStation Store and will support cross-platform save system, which is great news, if you want to bring the hack-and-slash game on the go, without having to do separate saves on different consoles if you have more than one.
Samurai Warriors 4 will be on display at Sony?s E3 booth at the event, so people can check out the game. There will be 50 more playable characters in the game, including certain characters like Nataora Ii and Munenori Yagyu, which was only available on the Japanese version of the series. New attacks and battle modes will also be introduced in the game, as well as the ability to swap characters on the fly, which was first seen in KOEI?s Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors spin-off, Warriors Orochi series.
To increase the hype of the game, Tecmo KOEI is also going to release an anime based on the upcoming game itself. The blueray copy of the anime is bundled with the original Japanese release of Samurai Warriors 4 in Japan, and now, just as they revealed the game?s presence at E3, the North American Animation trailer is a good indication that the same bundle could be possible with the US release of Samurai Warriors 4. (Most probably, the anime will feature Japanese voices and English subtitles)
Be sure to tune in to Sony press con for updates on the title via free streaming site hosted by Twitch, which is an official partner of the annual E3 event.
