Koei Tecmo have revealed a new entry in the Samurai Warriors series, solely focusing on the Sanada clan – Samurai Warriors Spirit of Sanada! The game will follow the legacy of the Sanada clan through history, through the great battles of Masayuki Sanada and those of his son, the iconic Yukimura. Watch the reveal trailer below:
Here’s Koei Tecmo’s overview of the game:
The tale of the Sanada Clan begins with patriarch Masayuki Sanada, a much-requested character who joins the Samurai Warriors series for the first time. The player follows Masayuki’s first battle, trailing the clan’s meteoric rise from lowly vassals to powerful lords which led to the birth of the fan-favourite samurai, Yukimura Sanada. Continuing the clan’s legacy, players will then journey from boyhood as the legendary warrior, following his footsteps as Yukimura rises to the title of “The Crimson Demon of War.” Players will also experience the epic tale of his father’s reign and his finest battles, up to his valiant final stand at the Siege of Osaka.
This is a really interesting idea, and has a lot of potential for branching out the Samurai Warriors series! It’s definitely going to be a fresh take on the series! More information on the game’s plot and gameplay mechanics, as well as the many playable characters, will be revealed in the coming weeks.
A pre-order bonus has also been announced in the form of a special costume pack, featuring Kunoichi, Ina, Kai, and Chacha ‘Sanada Colours Costumes’, as well as a ‘Kunoichi Special Costume’.
Samurai Warriors Spirit of Sanada launches on 26th May for PS4 and Steam.
