Even Samurai Warriors Chronicle 3rd Has A Friendship System

By Spencer . August 10, 2014 . 11:54pm


Samurai Warriors Chronicle 3rd isn’t just about slicing and dicing through an entire army. You can befriend other samurai too. During event scenes, you can pick conversation options and your choices will improve your relationship with different characters. When your friendship gets stronger you’ll see different event scenes.

Of course, Samurai Warriors Chronicle 3rd has plenty of hack and slash action. Omega Force used Samurai Warriors 4 as a base for combat. Moves in like the Godspeed Action and Secret Musou are in the game along with character swapping.


Samurai Warriors Chronicle 3rd is slated for release on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita sometime in 2014.

    I love the Musou series, but every time they introduce the friendship system… it seems like a drag. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 had fluctuating friendships, and you couldn’t really control who’d be on your team or on the others, and depending on the friendships, you’d get locked out of certain missions.
    Samurai Warriors on the 3DS had you playing over and over and over again to trigger the friendship scenes in order to unlock their styles…
    I dunno, they always feel like a drag, when I play Musou, I just wanna kill some effers xD

      SWC wasn’t too bad though, you didn’t NEED to unlock the scenes to max their friendship and get their styles. And the fact you could choose a team of 4 helped to speed it up too.

        Yeah, it was definitely better than DW: Gundam 2, but I’m still not a fan:P

  • IkouKuhn

    Friendship is good… but how about marriage? *wink*

    Y’know just like in Empires series…

    ” I….I….I love you senpai-san :$ ” >Friendship rose

    I don’t know about you, but I want to befriend samurai

  • Ah I hope this comes to our English 3DS systems too. Did anyone of you played that one that was released during the 3DS launch?

    • Tincho Kudos

      I have it, Its a good game (the best of the launch titles). My biggest gripe with the game was the party you had in each stage was fixed and only after beating it once you can had a party you want. But since the maps are repeated in the story, there is little to no reason to play them again with your desirable party.
      Also if you wanna go up friendship you had to use them in battle and that becomes a drag in so little time.

      If Omega Force fixes that, it’d be a very good game

    • J_Joestar

      yeah, hope it comes out in the west as well.
      loved the original and was sad we never got the 2nd.

      • Ixbran

        it was already confirmed by KoeiTecmo Europe that the game is japan exclusive …

        • J_Joestar

          really? that is terrible >_<

  • CDM

    but when can i marry my waifu nene

    • J_Joestar

      Well IIRC she outlives Hideyoshi anyways, so you are good to go as soon as he is six feet under.

  • Samurai Social Link Go?

  • J_Joestar

    don’t a lot of warriors games have some form of friendship system in place already?
    i just hope it is a singular value between the a custom character + each other character rather than each character + every other character.

  • Yan Zhao

    Eh, most DW game have a friendship/bond system. They usually dont do much other than a one-time special conversation.
