What’s The Story, Samurai Glory?
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 main playable characters and 10 additional side characters, including both new and returning warriors, from Ieyasu Tokugawa and Hideyoshi Hashiba to Nō, and Yoshimoto Imagawa.
Stylish Musou Frenzy
In addition, all-new Musou actions have been added to the series – including newly designed Musou Frenzy Attacks and all-new Ultimate Skills – 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.
Post launch, Samurai Warriors 5 will reveal two waves of DLC content that will be available separately or through a Season Pass in August.
DLC Wave 1 includes three new action-packed scenarios, three additional horses, and two weapon sets. DLC Wave 2 adds three more heroic scenarios, three more horses, and three new sets of weapons.
