Koei Tecmo revealed Samurai Warriors 4 Empires today, the latest in the franchise of hacking and slashing and such. It’s the same Samurai Warriors 4 fans know and love, except with Empires’ mechanics thrown in, meaning a whole lot more kingdom cultivation. There’s a new 3D castle system for dealing with politics now. Your subordinates will be strewn about the castle and you can talk to them to get ideas on what diplomacy you’ll want to enact for your budding kingdom. As you gain more and more influence, your castle will grow, as well. Battles now have the element of giving direct orders to every ally on the field, too. You need to turn the tides of the battle in your favor by taking over key points on the battlefield. And finally, the trailer showcases the drama of it all as marriages return, friendships can be cultivated, and rivalries can flourish.
Samurai Warriors 4 Empires will release in North America on 3/15/2016 with a European release date of 3/11/2016. You can grab the game on the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
