Take A Look At Samurai Warriors: Chronicles’ DLC And StreetPass Battles

By Ishaan . February 24, 2011 . 8:26am

Once the game is out in the wild, Tecmo Koei will support Samurai Warriors: Chronicles with additional content in the form of downloadable missions. One of these missions is titled “The Battle for Arioka Castle.”



An interesting point to note from the screenshot above is that the downloadable mission appears to be fairly high in difficulty.


While Chronicles doesn’t have multiplayer support like Samurai Warriors 3, the game does support automated passive battles through the 3DS’ StreetPass feature, similar to the figurine battles from Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition.

In order to use this feature, you’ll have to create a party of four warriors for use in StreetPass mode, similar to the game’s singleplayer mode. You can also select the formation of your party, and the weapon that you’d like to win at the end of a battle.


Once all of this is configured, the next time you cross paths with someone that has Samurai Warriors: Chronicles data in their 3DS and the device is in sleep mode, a simulated battle will begin between your party and theirs. At the end of the battle, you’ll receive the weapon you chose to obtain from StreetPass battles.



The game also maintains a record of all your StreetPass battles with other players. In addition to obtaining weapons from battles, your copy of Samurai Warriors: Chronicles will reward you with items for fulfilling different criteria as well.

  • I like it! But the chances of me passing someone in my town that will have this game, let alone have it in their DS, is pretty slim. Man I wish I lived in Japan (or more reasonably, London).

    • Code

      Yeah I know the feeling streetpass features are always really wasted on me opo; Even with the most popular game out there I’d have to go to like a college campus or highschool to even have enough population density to have a slight chance. And last time I was in a highschool I was taken to the principals office for skipping class despite not being a student omo;

      • Draparde

        lmao, that must have been awkward.

      • D:!

      • raymk

        damn I wonder what that was like lol.

      • the nice thing about the 3ds streetpass is that you don’t have to have the game in your unit to activate the streetpass mode. So the chances that you will pass someone on the street that has played SS4 at some point in the life of the 3ds will be so much better than it would have been trying to pass someone who had DQ IX in their machine at the time of passing. At least I hope it will be easier.

        • True but I wish it would be more constant rather then for me waiting to go to conventions and other likely places people would carry there 3DS.

  • I’m pretty sure streetpass type things hardly work anywhere like they do in Japan. I know at least for me in the UK (NW area) it never works. No matter how long you ride trains, walk around Manchester or anywhere. It’s always hell getting things done which require ‘streetpass’ in games… I remember The World Ends With You, I had to rely on only Aliens for my MPP… it was ghastly hard to get all those done. I really dislike streetpass :(

    • Whoo, another NWer (well, I am some of the time). I’d be surprised if I can get any even in Edinburgh, but I’d be very happy to be proved wrong. I know I’d get ridiculously excited if it did work out.

      • I live in Milton Keynes…So yes you guys could do a lot worse then me when it comes to trying to find other people to use streetpass. True Street Fighter I might find a few people but games like this and RPG’s…needle in a haystack baby :(

    • Actually one location that I imagine streetpasses working real well in would be conventions of any sort. Usually at game/anime/generallynerdy conventions, you’re going to have a large gathering of the kind of peeps who would do such gaming. (At least, once 3DS prices are affordable to the mass majority of such con-goers)

      • Ooh, thanks, that’s a good point. I’ve never been to a con but that sounds like a good reason to check one out. :)

      why not Europe? esp UK

  • Roanoke834

    Everytime I see something new about this game, it makes me want to cancel my preorder for SSF4 3D and put it on this instead x_x

    • neo_firenze

      Agreed, the more I see about Samurai Warriors the more I’m getting tempted to pick it up!

      Sticking to PS3/360 for my SSF4 needs, I just don’t enjoy fighters without a good arcade stick.

  • When it comes to most of the 3DS features, and the NGP. They are really built more for Japan then any other place.
