sw4aWhile Dynasty Warriors 8 with Xtreme Legends has been confirmed as a PlayStation 4 launch title, Samurai Warriors 4 is just for PlayStation 3 and Vita. Famitsu reports the game is slated for release in spring 2014.


Mitsunari Ishida, Hanbei Takenaka, Nobuyuki Sanada, Yoshitsugu Otani, Yukimura Sanada, Inahime, and Kanbei Kuroda are confirmed as playable characters. Altogether, the game will have over 50 playable characters.


Samurai Warriors 4 also has character switching where you have two characters in one stage similar to the Nintendo 3DS game, Samurai Warriors: Chronicles (pictured). The game also has a new mode where you can fulfill requests with a custom general you create. The magazine also mentions two new moves Godspeed Action and Secret Musou.


Update: Goemon Ishikawa and Musashi Miyamoto are playable characters in Samurai Warriors 4 too. The main story tells the history of the unification of Japan from Sanada’s perspective. There is also another storyline that shows history from another character’s perspective.

  • NightzeroAX

    Last game had 37 (minus the nintendo exclusive which comes to a total of 36) and this game has 50. I wonder who will make an appearance.

      probably the Takeda Horsemens.

    • Sardorim

      Well Tokugawa still has many great characters that want to get in.

      Personally I’m surprised that Tokugawa’s wife Lady Saigo isn’t in yet as she was a huge influence on Tokugawa and wielded a lot of power yet never abused it.

    There’s a 4th game coming? Nice! I wasn’t aware of that ^_^
    Over 50 characters huh? Let’s see:
    – SW3 XL had 40 characters.
    – WO3 added back Goemon Ishikawa, Miyamoto Musashi and Kojiro Sasaki, who were absent for a while in SW.
    – SW 2nd Chronicle added Takatora Todo, Munenori Yagyu and Naotora Ii.
    – The series had a NPC named Kennyo Honganji that was never playable so far.
    – I’m pretty sure that SW will add characters that are already featured in Sengoku Basara XD

    Oh yeah, I forgot: I hope that it will be released in English in NA with English dubs.
