KOEI TECMO Europe today is pleased to reveal the latest entry in the renowned SAMURAI WARRIORS action series, SAMURAI WARRIORS: Spirit of Sanada – a new adventure based on the heroic legend of the Sanada Clan, a cunning group of warriors from Sengoku Era Japan who believed in survival at all costs. SAMURAI WARRIORS: Spirit of Sanada is slated to release on the 26th May 2017 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and digitally on PC via Steam®.
A historically inspired action title set in Sengoku era Japan – the storied historical period also known as the Age of Samurai – SAMURAI WARRIORS: Spirit of Sanada focuses solely on the legendary Sanada Clan. Through their fierce will to survive, they fought with utmost vigilance to ensure that the Sanada name would be upheld throughout history.
The tale of the Sanada Clan begins with patriarch Masayuki Sanada, a much-requested character who joins the SAMURAI WARRIORS series for the first time. The player follows Masayuki’s first battle, trailing the clan’s meteoric rise from lowly vassals to powerful lords which led to the birth of the fan-favourite samurai, Yukimura Sanada. Continuing the clan’s legacy, players will then journey from boyhood as the legendary warrior, following his footsteps as Yukimura rises to the title of “The Crimson Demon of War.” Players will also experience the epic tale of his father’s reign and his finest battles, up to his valiant final stand at the Siege of Osaka.
Koei Tecmo Europe also announced a robust pre-order bonus pack for those who acquire the game before its launch on the 26th May 2017. Specifically, all pre-orders will receive a selection of special costumes; the “Kunoichi”, “Ina”, “Kai” and “Chacha” Sanada Colours Costume, as well as the “Kunoichi” Special Costume.
While more information about the game’s plot, key mechanics, and many playable characters will be unveiled in the coming weeks, a teaser trailer and a first batch of images was released showcasing the newly added Masayuki Sanada.
