Koei Tecmo has announced this morning by way of Famitsu that Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War & Nightmare is in development. Although neither intended platforms nor a release window are known as of this writing, the publisher has gone on record saying that it will be a remake with additional content of the original 2007 PlayStation and Xbox 360 real-time tactical game developed by Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force, which originally went by the title Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War.

Producer Akihiro Suzuki left a few words with the magazine about what players can expect, the translation of which you can find below.

It’s been seven years since we last got to work on Bladestorm, but finally we’re getting another shot at it! This is something that we as a company have wanted to do for a long time and fans have been especially vocal about their desires to see a new installment, so after much deliberation, we’ve opted to make this a reboot.

As such, not only are we looking to expand upon the foundation of the original game, but we also intend to introduce a load of new elements into the game. We’re not quite ready to talk about any specifics yet, so make sure to keep an eye on more news from us in the future as it comes.

Also, we’re soliciting options and requests, so I hope you’ll join us on this journey to help develop this game into the best that it can be.

We’ll be keeping track of this game and provide further updates as we’re made aware of them.

    Nice, here’s hoping that it’ll be remade exclusively for 8th-gen system, fully taking advantage of more capable hardware.

    • Solomon_Kano

      One would hope so, seeing as the original is already on PS3 and 360.

      • Budgiecat

        well Atelier Rorona remake was on PS3

        • Solomon_Kano

          This is true, cat. Though Gust’s actions may not mean say much for the rest of KT, or maybe they will. I guess we’ll see though.

          • Budgiecat

            also maybe not remakes, but Ninja Gaiden 3RE & Dead or Alive 5U were basically rehauls..and Gundam Reborn…kinda

            • Solomon_Kano

              As updated versions rather than actual remakes, it makes sense that they’d be on the same generation of hardware.

    • Bob Obb

      I don’t think PS4 would make a difference for this studio’s games. You mash one button until everything dies.

      • bloodiOS

        That might be how it was, but we don’t know how the remake will be yet, so I’m gonna stay hopeful.

      • OverlordZetta

        So you’ve never played one then, got it.

      • desponent

        Yes, musou is the only game TK make.

  • Chestnut Bowl

    After introducing the Warriors series gameplay to even non-fans after mash-ups with various popular franchises and experimenting with mechanics, the time is right for Bladestorm to succeed.

    I still humbly request a US Civil War Warriors title.

    • Audie Bakerson

      Not “Revolutionary Warriors”?

      • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

        I dread what they would do to the founding fathers if such a game was ever made…

        • Dick Mountainjoy

          It’s not Civil Basara

      • Warboss Aohd

        do want!

  • Comandante Bushido

    Sold

    • Thatguy

      Somebody, sell Gundam to Comandante! He seems to be lost…

  • icup ✔️

    i bought bladestorm hoping it plays like dw but with a european setting… boy was i wrong, had no clue what i was doing and loss the first battle so many times that i sold the game the next day.

    hope they make it easier this time for people like me that don’t like to read.

    • desponent

      The point of this kind of game is lots of reading, they have musou franchise to cater to your kind.

  • Anime10121

    Two words KoeiTecmo….Ni-Oh…

    • Revyatheworldeater .

      She was in Atelier Escha and Logy…

  • GozuTennai

    Came back to this 2 days ago and thought “wonder why they dont make a sequel to this gem?”

    Must have have heard me!

  • Aiddon

    Interesting that they’re coming back to this after so many years. Guess putting Jeanne in Warriors Orochi did some good. What next, a sequel to Legends of Troy?

    • Budgiecat

      they should remake Seven Magic Mansions and make another Zill O’ll

      • Audie Bakerson

        Or finally release the original in English…

  • Budgiecat

    I wanted to like that game but it was really awkward and probably the most confusing Koei tecmo game I played.

    they really would need to revamp and overhaul things. Maybe look at how Kingdom under Fire II is handling things and take cues and inspiration from them.

    Oh and get rid of those anoying head indicators…

    just another copy n paste with different skins:/

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    i am still waiting for Drakengard musou…

    • desponent

      Isn’t that redundant?

  • Max

    And here I am recently bought the original Bladestorm :(

    Oh well, at least I’m just glade that they are still have plans for this era.

    I did not like what saw of the original very much but it was the era that the game covered that had me interested.

    I wounder what other conflicted eras they might cover?

    Personally, I’d love to see an adaption of an era post Islamic spreading.
    Maybe Islamic period in Spain? I just hope they make a tasteful, accurate adaption of that era. I personally not exactly sure if they did the same with the other historical conflicts in their past games or not, but I think their past games were tasteful with some accuracy of what I know of them.

    ummmm
    platform: IOS!!

    • Budgiecat

      thankfully, Koei tecmo has not gone full retard on mobage

  • LordKaiser

    Bladestorm was a disappointment to me. Instead of using historical figures, you use a stupid mercenary and the only goal in the game is earn money.

  • Death Saved

    How about a new naval ops game, one with a futuristic setting, we had one on the PS2 but it was not translated.
