Samurai Warriors Chronicle Stars You

imageFamitsu has a spread on Samurai Warriors Chronicle that shows two user created heroes front and center. Whatever character you make is the star of the Nintendo 3DS game.


New to the series is the player change system, which lets you switch between four generals on the battlefield. Why switch? Each general has their own set of skills. All you need to do is tap the touch screen to swap fighters. The bottom screen appears to have a map, which makes Samurai Warrior Chronicles look really different from the screenshots released back at E3.


According to Famitsu, Samurai Warriors Chronicle is 50% complete. A release date has not been announced.

    i wonder if the character switching will work like the warriors orochi series…or will it be like switching with a general who is on a different part of the map or something.

    Awesome. Character customization like this is great. Fire Emblem remake and now this. Hope they start pushing this more.

  • Saw some direcd feed screenshots elsewhere (don’t remeber, sorry):

    The map show is from the third game. It’s a hybrid map used for Kanto region/Kawanakajima battles.

    Character models are also from part 3, but with reduced polygon count and texture resolution.

    It’s really hard to make out, but there are four colored arrows on the touchscreen, spread all over the map. I think this hints at a “switch to character on a different part of the map” mechanic.
