Samurai Warriors 4-II On PC Uses Character Models From PS4, Says Koei


The PC version of Samurai Warriors 4-II will use character models from the PlayStation 4 version of the game, Koei Tecmo Europe said to an enquiring player over Twitter.


In response to a fan asking if the textures of the PC version would be on-par with the PS4 build of the game, Koei responded: “As much as we know the character models are based on PS4 quality for SW4-II PC, we will keep you updated.”


In the past, PC users have criticized Koei Tecmo over PC versions of their games. Two examples of this are Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round not taking advantage of the platform’s strengths, and in some cases looking inferior to their PlayStation 4 counterparts. For example, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round on PC is missing certain graphical effects that are present on the PS4. (In fact, that game is still missing online multiplayer—a standard feature on consoles—as well.)


It’s worth pointing out that Koei Tecmo have only suggested that Samurai Warriors 4-II’s character models specifically are based on the PS4 version of the game. How the rest of the game looks on PC remains to be seen.
