For you fortunate women and men among us who’ve taken the loyal initiative, gambolled into the electronics department of a local conglomerate or mom-and-pop shop, and thoughtfully (or thoughtlessly, depending on your priorities and financial situation) purchased, with an irresistible voice that was a combination of musical and sweet smelling, a PS4, congratulations: You are entitled to the 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition of Samurai Warriors 4.
As fans are no doubt aware, 24 October 2014 marks a decade of tactical surges and slicin’ and dicin’ for the Warriors franchise. To thank you for the support, KOEI TECMO will offer Playstation 4 adopters the exclusive Samurai Warriors 4: Special Anime Pack. But don’t feel too down or left out, PS Vita and PS3 enthusiasts; you’ll get a few collections in the form of pre-order incentives that while not as impressive as the PS4 offerings, are still a welcome bonus.
The Special Anime Pack will contain the following goodies intended to honour dedicated Warriors fans:
– “Special Anime Pack” 10th anniversary Collectors Edition packaging
– SAMURAI WARRIORS: Legend of the Sanada anime (Blu-ray Disc)
– SAMURAI WARRIORS 4 game (PlayStation 4)
– SAMURAI WARRIORS 4 Official Soundtrack (CD)
– Special Costume Pack 4: Garcia, Ina, Nene and Oichi (DLC)
– Old Costume Pack 1: Yukimura, Mitsuhide, Nobunaga, Noh, Oichi, and Ranmaru (DLC)
– Edit Parts Pack 1 which allows facial and Western themed armor customization (DLC)
And here are the pre-order incentives available at Game or for digital purchase through PSN Store:
– Scenario Pack 1: New stages “Sinister Beauties” and “Men of Charm and Courage”, new items “Gold Lacquered Box” and “Lion Censer”
– Special Costumes for: Mitsunari Ishida and Toyohisa Shimazu
Available with purchases via ShopTo.net:
– Weapon Pack 1: New weapons for over 25 characters
And finally, available from independent retailers through CentreSoft DLC bundle containing the following items:
– Old Costume Pack 2: Costumes inspired by the original SAMURAI WARRIORS for Keiji Maeda, Kenshin Uesugi, Kunoichi and Shingen Takeda
There has been no mention of the price for the Special Anime Pack, but with the Legend of Sanada anime Blu-ray and an official soundtrack CD included, a moderately higher price point certainly wouldn’t shock me. We will surely let you know once pricing information is available.
