Samurai Warriors 5 has been announced just recently, so Koei Tecmo has just started revealing the warriors you’ll be able to play when the game releases.
Today we get the reveal of two more via Weekly Famitsu, and they are Toshiie Maeda and Tadakatsu Honda.
Both return from previous games of the series.
Like the other samurai we saw so far, they both have a brand new look. You can check it out in the images below.
Samurai Warriors 5 will launch in Japan on June 24 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch and in the west on July 27, 2021 for PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
Here is how Koei Tecmo describes the game:
Samurai Warriors 5 takes place after the end of the Ōnin War, during the Sengoku period, and tells the story of two of the most preeminent military commanders of this period – Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi. This title includes various eras from this period, including the younger years of Nobunaga, when he was known as “Owari’s Great Fool,” and the period of turmoil and upheaval leading to the Honnō-ji Incident.
All of the game’s character designs have been completely redesigned and re-imagined to help fit the storyline’s Sengoku time period. In total, Samurai Warriors 5 features 27 playable characters, including both new and returning warriors, from Ieyasu Tokugawa and Hideyoshi Hashiba to Nō, and Yoshimoto Imagawa. Original character Mitsuki, a Kōga Ninja, has also been added, with other new characters to be announced at a later date.
In addition, all-new Musou actions have been added to the series – including newly designed Musou Frenzy Attacks – elevating the thrill of blowing away hordes of enemy soldiers in exhilarating fashion. These actions are displayed in a vibrant new Japanese ink painting art style, elegantly evolving the Samurai Warriors series to showcase the Sengoku period in stunning fashion as the intertwining stories of Nobunaga and Mitsuhide unravel on screen like a Sengoku period picture scroll.
