Samurai Warriors Yasuke Hanzo Hattori

Koei Tecmo and Omega Force released a new character trailer that revealed four new fighters coming to Samurai Warriors 5: Yasuke, Hanzo Hattori, Magoichi Saika, and Sandayu Momochi. Additionally, mature versions of Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi will appear in the upcoming title.

Yasuke is a samurai from a foreign land whom Nobunaga Oda employs as a retainer in Samurai Warriors 5. Although he is quite the lone wolf, he admires Oda and is loyal to him. Yasuke wields gauntlets in the upcoming title.

Magoichi Saika is the leader of a band of mercenaries. A true neutral on the battlefield, he has no loyalty to any faction. Saika arms himself with a gun and the will to survive.

Hanzo Hattori is a former member of the Iga Ninjas who now serves as the chief retainer of the Tokugawa family in Samurai Warriors 5. Given his history and current duties, he has a strong relationship with both Ieyasu Tokugawa and Sandayu Momochi. On the battlefield, he dons an intimidating mask while brandishing dual swords.

Although Sandayu Momochi is the head of the Iga Ninjas, he has a friendly disposition. He has a long history with Hideyoshi Hashiba, leading him to begin working for the Oda family. Momochi wields a kusarigama and handles Nobunaga Oda’s dirty jobs.

Here is the latest story-driven trailer for Samurai Warriors 5, debuting Yasuke and Hanzo Hattori.
