Hisashi Koinuma, producer for the Samurai Warriors series, announced last week on the PlayStation Blog that when Samurai Warriors 4 makes its way west on October 21st, it will have a cool collector’s edition: the Samurai Warriors 4: Special Anime Pack.
The release of Samurai Warriors 4 will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the series (thus the reason for the collector’s edition), and will be the first time in four years that there has been a game released. The collector’s edition includes the anime “Samurai Warriors: Legend of the Sanada”, the official soundtrack for the game, and “lots of DLC content” they hope we enjoy.
Koinuma explains the series and Samurai Warriors 4 itself as follows:
If you’re not familiar with the Samurai Warriors universe, it is a strategy action game series with strong ties to a period known to have existed in Japan during the Warring States (Sengoku Jidai) era. Samurai Warriors 4 is set approximately during the 1600s, drawing players into these conflict-driven years and reliving the human strife experienced by all involved. Battles were waged within, as generals, officers and warriors fought to realize their ultimate vision of leading a unified country. This era was filled with betrayal, even between the most trusted alliances, with the outcome of powerful human emotions resulting in both beautiful and horrible consequences.
Here’s where you, the player, relive history by taking on the role of various warriors, eliminating all who stand in your way. Specialized attacks are key as you find yourself in the exhilarating one against a thousand action the Samurai Warriors franchise is known for.
Samurai Warriors 4 is scheduled to release on October 21st for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita.
Another game to be released in October? Video game fans are crying everywhere. At least this time I won’t be included in the that group because I have never got into the Samurai Warriors series. Though I will admit, it looks really pretty.
