Today Koei Tecmo shared some new details about the ability to customize your castles and even character substitution for the main storyline in Samurai Warriors 4: Empires. This means that your own custom characters can be chosen to replace a specific historical character and they will take over their role in the storylines and battles from that point on. This customization allows for players to create leadership roles, adjust their move sets, their family crests, and even their character portrait.
The other feature is the aforementioned castle customization that allows players to decorate with unlockable wallpapers and banners that provide various bonuses such as increased income, supplies, and more. The company also detailed how taking over territories that contain special facilities such as mines, trading posts, and even hot springs can help give their empire an edge over other armies in Japan. You can check out a number of new screenshots as well as a couple new videos for Samurai Warriors 4: Empires below.
