Tecmo Koei Confirm Warriors: Legends of Troy For Early 2011

Warriors: Legends of Troy — or Troy Musou, if you prefer — is a Western-developed entry in Tecmo Koei’s Warriors (or Musou) series of games, set during the Trojan War.

 

At the Tokyo Game Show last week, Tecmo Koei announced that the game would be released in North America sometime in “early 2011.”

 

Legends of Troy is in development at Koei Canada and, like Samurai Warriors 3 before it, includes an online mode. Troy, however, lets you go at it in 4-player co-op or competitive and adds a few other features on top, such as being able to equip shields on horses and using them to bash enemies. You can also use weapons dropped by your opponents.

 

Tecmo have been experimenting with their Musou-style games a fair bit in recent years. The last significant departure from the series’ typically historical setting was Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage.

    It’s called Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage not “Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Revenge”.

    I wonder what’s gonna get the Musou treatment next…?

    How about Super Cosplay Comiket Musou, where you can choose from a bunch of beautiful cosplaying girls to beat off thousands of perverted photographers and rabid otaku fans at an anime convention?

    … even that’d be more interesting than going through every country’s history or classic anime.

    They should call this “Square, square, square, square, triangle…. with Greeks.”

    I like Musou games a lot (well, my avatar gives this away), but this one is way too brutal. Impaling people and watching them slide down the sword/spear, is that what KOEI headquarters give their thumbs up to?

    How about that Samurai Warriors 3: Xtreme Legends instead?

    When are they going to give us Romance 12?

    • kupomogli

      On the PS360 and make it two to four player P2P and online.

      I hope they update the gameplay just like RotK, but whenever attacking someone have the real time strategy gameplay of Kessen or Kessen 2.
