Koei Tecmo is about to release Samurai Warriors 5 and we can celebrate the upcoming launch together with a brand new giveaway.
With this giveaway, you can win one of three PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, or PC codes for the game, kindly offered by Koei Tecmo.
The way to get involved is really, really easy.
All you have to do is comment on our articles, everywhere on the site. The more you comment, the better your chances. We want to hear your opinions and insight, and there is no better way for that to happen than sharing your comments with us.
An important caveat is that comments on this post are not eligible for the giveaway. Of course, you’re welcome to comment here, but in order to participate, you need to comment at least on one other article.
On July 27 at 11:59 pm EDT we’ll randomly select three comments made after this post has been published, and the authors of these comments will win a digital download code for Samurai Warriors 5.
Of course, spam comments and throwaway one-liners will be disqualified, as we’d like to promote interesting commentary and conversations among our readers.
The winners will be able to select platforms and regions between PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PC (via Steam), North America, or Europe. IMPORTANT: due to code availability issues, only European copies of the Switch version will be offered. You can still play it anywhere, but you’ll need a European Nintendo account.
As a bonus, since one of the copies of Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection in our previous giveaway was not claimed, we’ll be selecting a fourth winner for this giveaway who will get that (one digital copy of Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection), with the same selection of platforms and regions available.
Once the winners have been drawn, I will respond to the winning comments, and we’ll also publish links to them in an update to this post. At that point, you should respond to my comment, and at the same time, send me a mail at [email protected] indicating your Disqus nickname and your platform/region of choice. The timing is important, as it’ll prove that you are indeed the winner.
If a prize isn’t claimed within three days of the announcement, we will proceed to draw another winner.
Once more, do keep in mind that comments on all articles on Twinfinite (excluding this one) are valid to enter this giveaway. The more you comment, the more chances you have to win.
Update: the giveaway is now closed. the winners have been decided! Find the winning comments below. Congratulations! If you’re listed, please follow the bolded instructions above to claim your prize. Do keep in mind that if a prize isn’t claimed by Saturday, July 31, that entry will be disqualified and we’ll proceed to draw another winner.
Johnny Chan: I recall last yr, Koei Tecmo asked musou fans to fill out surveys for both Samurai and Dynasty Warriors to seek out our opinions. I filled out both, and tried to nudge Koei towards making their games less about asset-recycling and be more like games from the PS2 golden era, a’ la – DW3 and SW2. Seems like they might be doing so in SW5 with a massively different art style and much smaller character roster. I’m still a little worried…having been burned by DW9, but I am nonetheless super optimistic for what Omega Force is doing with Samurai Warriors 5.
Ninja Gaiden Extra Prize:
atano: I remember being very down when Ishii left Square thinking the Mana series would never see the light of day again. The success of Trials of Mana reminded me that there is still a team that cares a great deal about Mana though. After reading this especially the bit about Oyamada getting in touch with Ishii and others of the old team to badger them about consistency to the original I feel incredibly heartened to know how much tender loving care he has for the series.
