Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanda Coming to the West

Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanda Coming to the West

Samurai Warriors fans in North America and Europe can let their excitement be known as publisher Koei Tecmo announces the Western release of Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanda bringing an all new character with it.

Coming to PlayStation 4 and (PC on Steam), Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanda will hit Western Shores on May 23, 2017.  Along with this announcement, Koei Tecmo announced costumed pre-order bonuses for Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanda for those who pre-order from Amazon, Best Buy, or GameStop.

Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanda is a tale spun around the historical Sanda Clan, whose banner dates back to the 16th century. The story begins Masyauki Sanda, a highly requested character who makes his debut in this title, from his first battle, chronicling the clan’s rise to power up to Yukimura Sanda’s defeat during the Siege of Osaka.

Since its launch in 2004 on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, Koei Tecmo and developer Omega Force’s Samurai Warriors as a franchise is known for its historical accuracy, so fans interested in the Sanda Clan, their legacy or the mark they made on history should be interested in this title.

The Warriors brand has its toes dipped in a lot of different properties. Most recently, Koei Tecmo released Dynasy Warriors: Godseekers which launched on PlayStation 4 and Vita which worked as a Strategy RPG rather than a hack n’ slash. Aside from that, Koei Tecmo is working with Nintendo to launch Fire Emblem Warriors following the success of Hyrule Warriors which released on both the Wii U and 3DS. And that’s only speaking about some of the titles that are hitting the west, as the publisher/developer duo set to launch Masuo Stars (set in the Warriors Orochi universe) in Japan on the PlayStation 4 and Vita on Mar. 30, 2017.
