Between Attack on Titan, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend, and Nobunaga’s Ambition, Koei Tecmo has been on a roll lately. The good news continues, with a new wealth of information regarding Samurai Warriors 4-II being released.
First up, we have learned about four characters whose stories will be told throughout the game:
|Toyohisa Shimazu is a young lord, eager to match the skills of his elders’.|
|Kojuro Katakura is magnificently devoted and loyal to his master, Masamune Date.|
|Kagekatsu Uesugi is a laconic man with inspiration battle prowess.|
|Takakage Kobayakawa is a man of great compassion who always wants to end battles with the least amount of casualties possible.|
In addition to these new characters, Samurai Warriors 4-II introduces Survival Mode. The new mode is made to test players’ skills: tale control of one of the characters and enter a castle with infinite levels and just as many rewards. Defeating enemies or completing objectives rewards weapons and mounts that can be used in story mode, but only if the castle is escaped before health or time runs out. The farther a player goes, the more difficult it gets but the more lucrative the rewards.
The Endless Castle, as it has been dubbed, also has a Challenge Mode where players can set high scores in one of four chambers. The Chamber of Trial is for defeating as many enemies as possible within a set time limit. The Chamber of Riches is about collecting as much gold as possible during the set time limit. The Chamber of Agility tests a player’s skill by requiring them to defeat enemies and reach a destination within the time limits. As for the Chamber of Death… one can only imagine what terror such a place would bring for low-level player, but those with higher levels will be rewarded handsomely for their efforts.
Samurai Warriors 4-II will be released September 29, 2015 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PC (via Steam).
