KOEI TECMO DETAILS BRAND NEW ENTRY AND FIRST BATCH OF PLAYABLE SAMURAI FOR UPCOMING CHARACTER-FOCUSED EPIC SAMURAI WARRIORS 4-II!
Pre-order downloadable bonus content announced
Hertfordshire, 9th July 2015- Koei Tecmo Europe released today a wealth of new information for upcoming Samurai Warriors 4-II, a tactical action title slated to be released on 2nd October 2015 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and digitally on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, and on PC via Steam®.
Samurai Warriors 4-II is a hero-focused saga. Unlike the previous Samurai Warriors games that focused on delivering their narrative by exploring the various regions of feudal Japan, this title casts a spotlight on the characters themselves and tells their stories through 13 exciting new chapters. These chapters revolve around nine characters introduced in Samurai Warriors 4, three fan-favourites from previous titles and a brand new addition to the samurai roster.
Koei Tecmo revealed a set of screenshots of this new playable addition: Naomasa Ii. Naomasa is a general of the Tokugawa army, known both for his bravery and for donning a bright red armour when taking to the battlefield. Naomasa has been part of the Samurai Warriors Universe since the first instalment of the series; however this is the first time he will appear as a playable character.
In addition, the first four of twelve returning playable characters were announced, accompanied by a batch of assets and battle screens. These characters are: Nobuyuki Sanada- the elder of the two brothers in line for leadership of the Sanada clan and a very level headed and competent warrior; Hisahide Matsunaga- a feudal lord under the rule of Nobunaga; Koshōshō- an adventurous and ambitious paramour; and the famed Mitsunari Ishida- a shrew financial manager and one of the most popular playable characters in the Samurai Warriors Saga.
Finally, Koei Tecmo announced a variety of downloadable pre-order bonuses for some of the most celebrated lady warriors, available to fans that purchase the title early.
Specifically pre-orders through GAME will receive an exclusive costume for Naotora Ii. Those who order through independent retailers (via Centresoft) will receive an alternative outfit for Lady Hayakawa, while those who pre-order from Amazon will be able to dress up No-hime in yellow!
Finally, ShopTo.net will offer a lovely new outfit for Koshōshō inspired by Naotora Ii’s default costume, and last but not least, digital pre-orders through the PlayStation®Network will receive a brand new and exclusive dress ensemble for Naotora Ii!
