SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 coming to PC on July 27th, first details unveiled

KOEI Tecmo and Omega Force have announced that SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 is coming to PC via Steam on July 27th. SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 introduces a re-imagined experience – from the visuals to the storyline – to open the curtain on an all-new SAMURAI WARRIORS series.

SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 takes place after the end of the Onin War, during the Sengoku period. The game tells the story of two military commanders of this period – Nobunaga Oda, and Mitsuhide Akechi. This title includes various eras from this period, including the younger years of Nobunaga and the period of turmoil and upheaval leading to the Honno-ji Incident.

As the press release reads, Omega Force has re-imagined and redesigned all of the game’s character designs. In total, SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 features 27 playable characters. These include both new and returning warriors, from Ieyasu Tokugawa and Hideyoshi Hashiba to N?, and Yoshimoto Imagawa. The team has also added an original character Mitsuki, a Koga Ninja. Furthermore, it plans to add other new characters at a later date.

In addition, the game features all-new Musou actions, including newly designed Musou Frenzy Attacks. These actions are displayed in a vibrant new Japanese ink painting art style, elegantly evolving the SAMURAI WARRIORS series to showcase the Sengoku period in stunning fashion as the intertwining stories of Nobunaga and Mitsuhide unravel on screen like a Sengoku period picture scroll.
