This week’s Famitsu magazine confirms that Matsunaga Hisahide, who previously made brief appearances in Samurai Warriors: state of War and Samurai Warriors 2, will be returning in Tecmo Koei’s Samurai Warriors 4.
While it hasn’t been revealed as to how he’ll be fighting, Matsunaga Hisahide fought as a Fire Ninja bodyguard in Samurai Warriors 2, who used bombs as his weapon of choice, so we might be seeing something similar.
The theme of Samurai Warriors 4 will be about telling the history of the era’s unification during the late stages of Japan’s Sengoku period, which takes place across the nation, and will go on until the end of the Sengoku period.
Famitsu also reports that in Story Mode, you’ll be selecting different districts, which will tell the stories featuring big names such as Oda Nobunaga and Takeda Shingen.
Samurai Warriors 4 will be released for PlayStation 3 and Vita on March 20, 2014, in Japan.
