Update 7:05 a.m.: A few new details have come in.
Sanada Yukimura and Date Masamune’s early childhood selves are playable. Each character has different actions from their adult selves. Benmaru, voiced by Soichiro Hoshi, is Yukimura’s early childhood self, and uses a long practice spear as a weapon. Bontenmaru, voiced by Kazuya Nakai, is Date Masamune’s early childhood self, and uses a wooden sword as a weapon.
There’s also a new system called the “Warrior Hearts System,” which lets players power up their military commander during battle by collecting warrior hearts on the battlefield, and activate special abilities known as skills.
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
