Light Armor Makes Sense If You Practically Fly Around Samurai Warriors 4′s Battlefields

By Eugene . January 24, 2014 . 4:00pm


Sometimes I wonder if Tecmo Koei and Capcom are having a secret war to see whose version of Japan’s Warring States period gets more extreme. In Tecmo Koei’s latest unveiling of characters for Samurai Warriors 4, they show off more of the ever-insane cast, including newcomer “I got wings!” Ii Naotora in her light armour.


Alongside her are returness ninja Hanzo Hattori, Tokugawa Ieyasu who lugs around a gigantic spear-cannon combination weapon; and finally, the don’t-mess-with-my-toy-ball Yoshimoto Imagawa. I dunno, I’m still rocking Tecmo Koei’s version of Chosokabe Motochika and Koshosho, but we’d be missing out on “Are you ready?!?!” Masamune Date. Which side’s alternate-history guys would kick the other’s ass you think?


Tokugawa Ieyasu:

Yoshimoto Imagawa:

Hanzo Hattori:

Samurai Warriors 4 will be available for PlayStation 3 and Vita on the 20th of March.

    Is that Destiny’s Wings of Light I see?

    • MrTyrant

      Victory you mean.

      • Aesma

        I’ve always thought that Victory’s is more… pink (Light Crimson Color FTW!) and Destiny’s is more purplish…

        • MrTyrant

          For me is blue. Destiny is pink given some quality in the old version or more purplish with better animation.

          • Aesma

            …wait, are we talking about model kit Victory, or game Victory here? I just realized that in games, Victory’s wings are blue. But in model kits, its pink…

          • MrTyrant

            The wings turn pink with maximun power. They are normally blue so were the old Victory’s models-prototype I believe.

          • Aesma

            Hoo… I see, thanks for explaining…

  • KnifeAndFork

    I don’t know if I like Samurai Warriors trying to be Basara now. I kinda liked it the way it was before so it would give me incentive to try it and Basara for polar opposites in terms of presentation

    Naotora…..Naotora from chronicles? this is sounding awesome

  • Skode

    This article aint “news” nor has the author pertained it to be such. It is instead him openly asking for debate about preferences between the two franchises. Truth be told half the time i spend MORE time reading the comments section of any news article here than i do actually reading the articles themselves so whats the big deal eh?

    If anything, you should at least thank them. They’re not robots, they can’t post EVERY news of EVERY games in one day. That’s a lot of work.

    Anyway. li Naotora looks cool in the trailer, but her personality was meh in Chronicles 2. Her design is alright (not a fan of her hairstyle). But for now, I still prefer the one from BASARA.

    “Stop starting flame war.”

    Did you even read your own post? You’re the only one starting a flame war.
