Hot on the heels of the Dragon Quest IX deal, Nintendo announced they’re going to publish Samurai Warriors 3 in the West. Prior to this agreement, the two companies collaborated to add a mode based on the Famicom title The Mysterious Murasame Castle into Koei’s game. Nintendo confirms it will be in the North American version even though we missed out on the 1986 game.
Samurai Warriors 3 was released in Japan last December and is slated for a domestic release this fall. Wonder if Nintendo is localizing it or if Samurai Warriors 3 will have the standard cheesy one liners and voice acting like past games.
Update: Jarrodand correctly points out in the comments the North American version is being upgraded with online co-op play. Previous Samurai Warriors games only had offline co-op.
