Koei Tecmo and Omega Force have announced that Samurai Warriors 5 is in development for Nintendo Switch.
The 1 vs. 1,000 action series will soon make a return in what has been pitched as “a fresh, re-imagining of the franchise.”
You can expect an all-new storyline, revamped character designs and a “stylish” new visual presentation in an experience set in the Sengoku period that will shine an “in-game spotlight” on Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi.
There will be a monthly Samurai Warriors 5 livestream starting on Thursday 25th February 2021, promising regular updates leading up to the game’s eventual launch.
Samurai Warriors 5 will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2021.
