Koei Tecmo America will release a 10th-anniversary collector’s edition version of hack and slash game “Samurai Warriors 4.” The exclusive version will only be available for Sony’s PlayStation 4 and will reach buyers in North America on October 21 this year, along with the PS3 and PSVita versions of the title. The special version is to celebrate the release of the first "Samurai Warriors" game, which hit shelves in 2004 for the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox.
The special edition will include limited edition packaging, “Samurai Warriors: Legend of the Sanada” anime film Blu-ray disc, the game's official soundtrack, special costume pack downloadable content, old costume pack DLC, a pack that allows players to edit characters’ faces and armor, and the game itself.
“Samurai Warriors 4” will allow players to choose from more than 50 playable characters. Nobuyuki Sanada and Yoshitsugu Otani join the list, accompanied by Takatora Todo, Naotora Ii and Munenori Yagyu, who were previously only available in Japanese releases of “Samurai Warriors.”
The game will also come equipped with new battle modes – enhancements and newly improved gameplay systems create a better and more “satisfying combat experience.” Players will also have the ability to switch between two characters in real-time.
“Samurai Warriors 4” will also feature a new “chronicle mode,” where players discover the game’s world by their own design. This means that completing various missions, meeting new characters and collecting items will all impact the way the story unfolds.
PlayStation 4 users will experience a more engaging saga with highly-detailed landscapes and skies. These features will reflect true to life lighting and shows effects.
“Samurai Warriors 4” was developed by Omega Force and published in North America by Koei Tecmo America. The PlayStation 3 and PS Vita versions will be available digitally exclusively through the PlayStation Store for $49.99 and $39.99, respectively. The PlayStation 4 standard edition will be available for $59.99 and the “Special Anime Pack” will be available at participating retailers for $74.99.
