Samurai Warriors 4 Asks Why Footsoldiers Even Show Up At These Fights

By Eugene . February 16, 2014 . 9:30am


Samurai Warriors continues its tease with even more gameplay videos of the playable characters within the game, this time focusing on the game’s seemingly uncanny ability to have footsoldiers line up in neat lines and groups for players to simply chew through. One wonders if war was ever truly like that in the past why any peasant would dare show their face for battle…



Totally fictional but totally energetic, the fictional Kuniochi is back again and ready to look cute and dapper while slicing everything up with a hop, skip and a jump.



Wielding a chain-segmented sword that acts as a retractable whip, the lady Kai is a bit of a mystery on whether her deeds were true or not.


Kotaro Fuma:

The supposed leader of the Fuma ninja clan is a top class man, able to instantaneously teleport short distances while slashing all who oppose him.


Ujiyasu Hojo:

He counts Kai as one of his most trusted soldiers, and was once called the “Fool of Sagami”. They aren’t laughing now.


Takeda Shingen:

The Tiger of Kai is classically painted as a master strategist and one of the more prominent and well-known leaders during the Warring periods. And it shows. He’s reported to have taken on the Fuurinkazan fully, and his special move reflects that with a four-element attack.


Samurai Warriors 4 will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Vita March 20th in Japan.

  • Masa

    not much point at watching these, same damn moves for the last 10 years.

    • Yuuki

      Why fix what isn’t broken…? A bit of consistency is a good thing,I know I’m glad my favorite characters have the same hood movesets between games.

      • Yuuki


      • Chogokin

        You can keep the moves for a character and still add new ones, or modify existing ones. Not changing anything is too safe and boring.

        • Testsubject909

          Which is a good thing that the Warriors series tends to switch things up with every number and alter things, add things or in some sad cases remove things.

          I really liked Musou Rage from DW5. Why is that not back yet… Well I guess it’s sort of back in DW8. It’d also be nice if they’d amp up True Musou again. It doesn’t have the same large noticeable change in both animation, effect and damage as it once had.

        • Yuuki

          Well I doubt they’re going to leave everything the same and I don’t expect them,but I also don’t want them to screw up everyone moveset,like DW6 did.

    • Isuke-sama

      Sengoku Basara also uses the same damn moveset over these years. And they add very little new stuffs compared to Koei.

    • Testsubject909

      Actually some movesets do get some alterations over time, at least it’s noticeable in Dynasty Warriors. And in more recent years, some characters have had complete weapon set overhauls.

      Plus with new addition of abilities and smaller finer detail, it’s good to watch these to know what’s been added, altered or removed.

      Y’know. Kinda like with every other game out there that gets sequels.

  • Mir Teiwaz

    Kunoichi is in? I’m sold.

    • Dark Zerato

      Such a weird costume. It’s not like ninja cloth.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        *looks at Sengoku Basara’s Sarutobi Sasuke* I’m pretty sure are poncho works…plus there isn’t really much under it.


    Yes, Kunoichi!

    Her move set seems to have better hit boxes compared to her Warriors Orochi 3 incarnation (though her C1 sequence in the first Warriors Orochi was quite gamebreaking after powering up with her R1 ability).

    I wish her C2 sequence (the one with the bomb “explosion”) had a larger area of effect though.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    well, gameplay definetly looks less stiff and more fast peaced, will give it a try wen it’s out!

  • fairysun

    The zoom-in character, was that the true musou? or extended musou? And what was the black and white thing that got absorbed by the character? Kill count?

  • Yuuki

    So glad Ujiyasu isn’t moving like a 90year old anymore…I love that guy but he was so stiff and slow…
