Koei Tecmo games is making a followup to Samurai Warriors 4 with Samurai Warriors 4-II for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita, this week’s Famitsu reveals.
Due out on February 11 in Japan, the game will cost:
- PlayStation 4 – 7,344 yen (Standard) / 12,744 yen (Treasure Box) / 6,480 yen (Download)
- PlayStation 3 and PS Vita – 6,264 yen (Standard) / 11,664 yen (Treasure Box) / 5,554 yen (Download)
Though titled Samurai Warriors 4-II, the game is less a sequel, and more so “another Samurai Warriors 4.” (Think Xtreme Legends.) It will feature new military commander Ii Naomasa (CV: Katsuyuki Konishi, Weapon: Spear), as well as new stages Koshu, Osaka Castle, Honzugawa Gate, Oshu, and Kuisegawa. The game’s Musou Enbu story mode will be ‘reborn’ with a new story different from the previous game.
Additionally, the Infinite Castle survival mode from the original Samurai Warriors will return. And the game will offer reforms of its Godspeed Action system, weapons and warhorse growth systems, and enemy military commander AI adjustments. Event scene backgrounds have been 3D-ified in that you can now move the camera around.
Development is currently 85 percent complete.
