    Darn, was excited until I saw that Vita version was download only. Sony needs different policies, or bigger game cards or something to make more retail games possible in cases like this.

      I don’t think this has anything to do with Sony’s policies. Games like this are usually retail on PS Vita in Japan. It’s here that they arrive download only.

      • Elvick

        This… is about Japan… and they’re digital only there…. so…..

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          I know.

          What I’m saying is – digital-only for these types of titles is rare in Japan. It’s here, in the west, where we get digital-only versions of these titles due to Sony’s localization policies. Thus, your initial comment relating the download-only PS Vita version to Sony’s policies is not correct. =)

            At least he didn’t go back in time and alter history with the edit button. ;) And I quite like seeing the logic breakdown here as It keeps my deductive logic skills in check.

            Now what the hell was I supposed to do today?

  • Gildohma

    hopefully it comes west.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Now here’s something I didn’t expect to get remastered.

  • Akimitsu

    I would love for this to come west, as I haven’t played any of these games.

    • jujubee88

      Yeah, I’m weirdly compelled to pick this up day one (based on YT footage) despite never playing them.

      It must be my love for Samurai’s kicking ass and my attraction to playing DW-type games.

      • Akimitsu

        Yeah, I have only played the original SW from the series, but I absolutely love DW-style games, so I hope KOEI does bring it over.

  • OverlordZetta

    This is… interesting news. I wonder why they chose 2 instead of 3?

    Well, I hope this comes over either way. I’m much more of a Dynasty guy, but I still like me my Samurai.

    Always nice to see the Tecmo Koei love continue, though it IS surprising that it’s Digital only in Japan. Maybe it was a space issue after all, alternatively, as it’s 2 and not 3, the estimated a slightly lower demand.

  • Ryumoau

    please bring this to NA. I’ve been wanting a Samurai Warriors game on ps3 for a long time.

  • Sardorim

    Terrible that the Vita version is split up and download only. Why cannot it be like the PS3 version have 2, XL, and Empires all together?
