    General summary:

    Tecmo Koei head of development and main Musou man Hisashi Koinuma said today at Twitter that the company has set February 2014 as a release target for Samurai Warriors 4.

    The reason for this specific timing is that February 2014 is the tenth anniversary of the Dynasty Warriors offshoot series, which was first released on PlayStation 2 on February 11, 2004.

    We should note that this doesn't represent official announcement that the game will arrive in February 2014, just a statement from Koinuma that Tecmo Koei has the game's tenth anniversary in mind for the fourth installment's release.

    Koinuma did not share further details on the sequel, but he did take the opportunity to promote Samurai Warriors Chronicle 2nd, noting that the 3DS title adds new characters, new scenarios and new modes over the original 3DS launch title.

    My body will be ready.

    Unless it's only on Wii again. Then I can say goodbye to the series.


  • When I first read that quote I thought it said "Releasing on PlayStation 2 on February, 2014", and I was like WHOA WTF SERIOUSLY.

    And then I re-read it, but anyway, that is a long time away. Still, excitement is excitement! Cool beans. Is Samurai Warriors the same as Dynasty Warriors?
  • This just reminds me of the fact the last Warriors game I played was DW6, I really must buy Warriors Orochi 3 sometime, maybe when I get paid on Tuesday to tide me over a little until Guild Wars 2.

    Pretty much. Except it's set in feudal Japan instead of ancient China.

    @Chip: If you buy WO3 on PS3, I can be a co-op partner.
  • Has it really been 10 years? God damn.
  • WO3 is christlike. I have a hard time feeling SW4 is needed, but...

    SW4!!!

    SW3 was excellent. Dug it. Only thing that held it back was the Wii itself.

    My thoughts exactly. Sure doesn't feel like 10 years has passed.

Howdy, Stranger!
