Koei Tecmo has released a new set of screenshots showcasing the PlayStation 4 version of Samurai Warriors 4.

The images introduce the new Chronicle mode, stills from story mode, and 12 new and updated warriors. Get all the details below, via Koei Tecmo.

Chronicle Mode – Samurai Warriors 4 brings players the ability to complete the journal of officers’ lives in the new Chronicle Mode as they journey across the lands of Japan while completing various quests, meeting new officers and collecting items.

Story Mode – In Samurai Warriors 4 greater focus has been placed on each faction in the Story depicting character relationships laden with drama. The outcomes of the regional stories will carry to the main story of unification, allowing character growth arcs and motivations to be portrayed in more detail. Regional stories revealed today include the Legend of Shikoku in which Motochika Chosokabe confronts a mysterious beauty amongst a sea of enemies, the Legend of Tokugawa following Ieyasu’s journey to greatness and the Legend of Tohuku as Masamune vows to expands the lands under his domain.

Create Character – The Create Character feature has been upgraded, with even more customizations for players to create unique officers and leave their own personal stamp on the history of the Warring States era. Special quests will also be made available which enable you to obtain rare weapons that are difficult to obtain within Story Mode.

Warrior Roster – The roster of 55 warriors includes the introduction of Kojuro Katakura from the Date clan known as ”Kojuro the Wise” for his aptitude with strategical warfare, the “Maid of Misfortune” Koshosho who uses her bewitching beauty to bend the will of men of Shikoku, and the graceful ruler Naotora, who has assumed leadership of the Li clan in her fight to deliver peace to Enshu. Additionally, updated characters from the series return in Samurai Warriors 4 including Hanzo, Hideyoshi, Ieyasu, Ina, Masamune, Motochika, Nene, Tadakatsu and Yoshimoto.

Samurai Warriors 4 is due out for PlayStation 4 at retail and PlayStation 3 and PS Vita via digital download on October 21 in North America and October 24 in Europe.

    Did Japan already had Samurai Warriors 4 on PS4 or is it not yet announced there?

    Good Good Good!

    So PS4 has Dynasty Warriors 7, Legends, Empires, Samurai Warriors 4, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate.

    They need to bring the other amazing warrior games like Gundam Reborn, Fist of the North Star Ken’s Rage 2, One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 as well!!

      I think there is a typo in your comment. Not 7, but 8.
      If you said in Japan names, then it’s not a typo… Wait… My head!

      Also, Koei will make a remake of Bladestorm. PS4 version is possible. And said about PS4 port of DWG:R, not possible, but maybe new version. (so, maybe we will get DWG:R2/DWG5/Shin Gundam Musou 2)

      • PrinceHeir

        I should have use Shin Sangoku Musou 7 instead.

        Where did they said about a remake of Bladestorm for PS4? Also Gundam Reborn not on PS4 is disappointing, but i don’t mind a new entry design for PS4 using the same burst style gameplay from Reborn.

          they did you just forgot

          Koei also needs to hurry up with their new 8th gen engine….

        • Thatguy

          There is a little to none info about Bladestorm remake, but i think it would be strange to make remake of a game, that already available on PS3. So i hope for PS4 version

    Would be nice to see the Vita screens and not just the souped-up PS4 ones, but it looks great anyway.
