That’s pretty much what sums it up when you come face to face against Lady Hayakawa or Takakage Kobayakawa. The Lady Hayakawa fights with ice-elemental attacks and a wand which one can only describe as half a lacrosse racket, while Takakage—the third son of Motonari Mori adopted by the Takakages—fights with wand/sword combo and book.
There’s also new models for Ujiyasu Hojo—whose daughter is the Lady Hayakawa—as well as Motonari Mori. Ujiyasu, the “Lion of Sagami,” fights with a cane that doubles as a warhammer and a signature jaunty pipe to complete his pretty piratical look.
Motonari, on the other hand, fights with a multi-shot crossbow loaded to his arm. How does that thing fire? Hell, how does that thing even reload?!?! MAGIC.
Samurai Warriors 4 will be out on PlayStation 3 and Vita March 20th in Japan.
