Tecmo Koei sets up all kinds of Warriors collaborations in Japan like a 7 Up costume and a crossover with convenience store chain Lawson. So, Derby Warriors, a mashup of Samurai Warriors 4 with a horse racing game, really isn’t that strange, especially considering Tecmo Koei used to develop horse racing games like Championship Jockey.
Derby Warriors is a browser game where you pick a general and mow down enemies running at you. Yukimura Sanada, Nobunaga Oda, Oichi, and Shingen Takeda are immediately available as playable characters.
The Japan Racing Association worked with Tecmo Koei to create Derby Warriors as a promotion for the upcoming Japan Derby. Curious? You can play Derby Warriors right here.
