New Samurai Warriors Is In The Works, but Devs Aren’t Ready To Talk; Musou Festival Had No Reveals

Five years have passed since the last numbered Samurai Warriors game, Samurai Warriors 4, and the series has been confined to spinoffs and expansions since 2014.

Even this year, which marks the fifteen anniversary of the first game dated 2004, the only announced title is the remaster Samurai Warriors 4 DX for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

Today Koei Tecmo hosted the Musou Festival, an event hosted in Chiba, near Tokyo, to celebrate the legacy of the Warriors series, including the recent Dynasty Warriors 9 and Warriors Orochi 4.

Many fans expected announcements related to the future of the Samurai Warriors series since it’s likely to be next and 4 DX seems to be a little on the light side to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary. Yet, it did not come.

Reactions on social media indicate that attendees generally really enjoyed the event quite a lot, but it was pretty much just a show, and not an event geared for reveals, so no reveals happened.

That being said, we still get a word about the next Samurai Warriors from Koei Tecmo President Hisashi Koinuma on Famitsu.

Koinuma-san explains that the developer is keeping fans waiting as they aren’t ready yet to talk about the next numbered title of the series. He thanks those who supported the franchise, and encourages them to also support 4 DX, which celebrates the 15th anniversary.  He adds that the team is working step by step to prepare for the next title, so he hopes that fans will look forward to it.

It isn’t much, but at least it’s something. In the meanwhile, you can see a few pictures from the event below, courtesy of Omega Force’s and Warrior Orochi’s official Twitter accounts.
