SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 is currently under development for the Switch/PC Steam/PS4 (playable on PS5 via Backward Compatibility)& the Xbox One consoles (playable on Xbox Series X|S via Backward Compatibility) and is set to launch across North America on July 27, 2021.
All of the game’s character designs have been completely redesigned and re-imagined to help fit the storyline’s Sengoku time period. All 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 – known as the 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 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.
