Samurai Warriors 4: Empires announced

Latest Empires due out in Japan in early September.

Samurai Warriors 4-II

Samurai Warriors 4: Empires is in development for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita, the latest issue of Famitsu reveals. It will launch on September 3 in Japan for 6,800 yen on PS4 and PS3, and 5,800 yen on PS Vita.

The “ultimate land-conquering Musou” game offers enhanced simulation elements, including a new “Resident Internal Affairs” feature. This is a command-based room corresponding to development and military affairs. Here, you can appoint duties by configuring your warlords’ placements. Depending on the compatibility of your warlords, there will be different effects on internal affairs.

The game is based on Samurai Warriors 4-II. When controlling bases connected by the communications line, the front line can be pushed forward, as well as all the warlords’ individual policies restored.

The game will also offer marriage events, not just between the Musou warlords, but also between edited warlords and general warlords.

There won’t be any new playable warlords, unfortunately. But on the other hand, over 100 female warlords will appear in the game, including Nobunaga’s Ambition‘s Chacha and Matsu.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
