Praise God And Pass The Ammunition, Say These Samurai Warriors 4 Heroes

By Eugene . February 20, 2014 . 1:32pm

Some of the Samurai Warriors 4 characters do better from afar, made all the more obvious when we’ve got character videos showing them rampaging through foes like wet paper bags. But why get your hands dirty when you can shoot enemies into tomorrow with angelic laser beams?

 

That’s what Gracia, the supposed Christian translated name for Mitsuhide Akechi’s daughter above is capable of when she unleashes her ultimate skill. Let’s begin by taking a look at her below, before we move on to other characters.

 

 

Magoichi Saika:

Magoichi on the other hand has more mundane weaponry at hand, with a bayonet-spiked rifle to run around with. The leader of the Saika renegades, he’s got some explosive weaponry on hand for when he’s outnumbered. Given that he’s said to have been a ladie’s man, maybe the gun isn’t all for show…

 

 

 

Motonari Mori:

Motonari is a little more old school, but no less badass. Despite not walking around with the latest in Western technology, his rapid-fire arrow-bolt hand-gun thingamabob is still more than capable of punching holes through anyone silly enough to try for him in battle, or being tipped with massive explosives.

 

 

 

Date Masamune:

Does the legendary One-Eyed Dragon really need all that much explaining? Easily one of the most well-known warlords of the Sengoku era alongside others such as the Tiger of Kai Takeda Shingen. His rising dragon ultimate attack puts paid to the name in a whirlwind of pistol shots and death.

 

 

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

    Masamune and Magoichi were always my favorite characters. Now they look more badass than ever.

  • SHSL Big Bro

    Not gonna lie, I only clicked the link because the title reminded me of one of my favorite Serj Tankian songs.

  • Monterossa

    Gracia, my most fav character :) and the reason why I don’t play Sengoku Basara.

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      I feel bad for you.

    • fairysun

      So, if Gracia ever makes it to Sengoku Basara, you will play it then?

  • Gekokujou

    Somehow missed that this was on vita too, definitely gonna get this for my Vita, maybe pre-order if there’s a bonus costume.

  • Warboss Aohd

    for those wondering why Magoichi isn’t a woman in this one, basically there always has to be a Magoichi Saica leading the Saica clan, this dude died and a woman who fell in love with him took over, and thus became the new Magoichi Saica.

    Edit: wow, i thought you all would know i was refering solely to Sengoku Basara 3, not actual history.

    I know these games are not accurate, i can’t believe i have to spell this out.

    Edit Again: ‘facepalms’ for some reason i thought this was a page for Sengoku Basara 4.

    ………i am so zoggin’ stupid.

    • Mr_SP

      That is… Horribly, horribly wrong. I mean, wow. As if Samurai Warriors has anything to do with Sengoku Basara. Basara’s Magoichi isn’t a real person, with place in official history, just an alternate, gender-flipped, version for the sake of being Basara.

      • Monterossa

        I think they have something to do with each other and you know what I mean.

      • Warboss Aohd

        Edit: Thought this page was for Sengoku Basara 4, my mind derped for a minute.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Basara is the one of the worst source to learn history, dude.
      Maybe next I should believe Guan Yu and Nobunaga were actually woman because of Koihime Musou and Oda Nobuna no Yabou

      • xXDGFXx

        I hope they announce Oda Nobuna no Yabou second season…

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        Actually historically, the leader of the Saika clan is always called Magoichi. It’s just that Basara’s Magoichi is a woman.

        • Rayhan PromisedGallery

          yup, Saika faction leader are titled as Magoichi, but NONE of the real Magoichis are woman. That’s why the above theory is still false and really Basara-made-up, it should not harm Samurai Warriors.

      • Warboss Aohd

        Edit: Nevermind, for some reason i thought this page was for Sengoku Basara 4.

  • Dark Zerato

    I don’t like Gracia’s twintail and her dress. The old model looks fine for me.

  • Vash bane

    date uses two pistols now? cool and gracia is looking awesome

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      he always uses two

  • Kai2591

    awesome ultimate skill, dat Gracia. Hot damn.

    and dat gothic + Chinese (?) hybrid dress is interesting.

    • Ixbran

      Japanese. Samurai Warriors is a fictional take on Japanese history. Dynasty Warriors is chinese.

      • Kai2591

        OH right lol I was thinking of Dynasty Warriors haha~

  • Guest

    So they also genderbent the Saika? I know it has some grounding, but still, Sengoku Basara says “Hi”…

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Basara is the genderbent one, the real Magoichis are all man

  • fairysun

    I never really like Magoichi’s moveset, but boy in this one I think he will be top tier on my list.

  • J_Joestar

    so when is Aya showing up?
