Koei Tecmo has provided ample details about some of Samurai Warriors 4-II’s gameplay modes and characters. The Endless Castle will allow people to take on both a Challenge and Survival Mode to test their skills, perhaps with one of the four samurai that are the focus of the latest screenshots.
The Endless Castle Survival Mode, depicted in the video above, sees if someone can find their way out of a castle before their health or time runs out. Any character can be used in Survival Mode, and could earn weapons and mounts for Story Mode from completing levels that get more and more difficult. Gates to higher levels will open as one plays, and objectives like defeating mystery officers may appear.
The Endless Castle also contains four different Challenge Mode Chambers. Each one has a different objective. The Samurai Warriors 4-II trailer released by Koei Tecmo shows the Chamber of Agility, which has a goal of reaching a certain point while defeating standard enemies along the way. The Chamber of Death has enemies capable of inflicting mortal blows, the Chamber of Riches is about collecting as much gold as possible within a set time, and the Chamber of Trials tasks people with defeating as many enemies as possible while timed.
Four more Samurai Warriors 4-II samurai were also announced for the game, and each one will have stories to follow within the game. Kojuro Katakura is one of Masamune Date’s subjects, Takakage Kobayakawa tries to win without killing too many people in the process, Toyohisa Shimazu wants to prove himself as a lord, and Kagekatsu Uesugi wants to inspire his allies.
Samurai Warriors 4-II will come to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC on September 29.
