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.
