Koei Tecmo has revealed that Samurai Warriors 4 DX will be headed to both PS4 and Nintendo Switch next year. The game is scheduled to launch in Japan on 14th March 2019.
The game has been described as a "complete edition" of 2014's Samurai Warriors 4, a hack-and-slash title which was originally released to celebrate the series' tenth anniversary. The new, fancy 'DX' part of the title represents the inclusion of 150 pieces of previously released DLC - expect to find costumes, weapons, customisation parts, scenarios, background music, and more as standard.
We don't have any confirmation of a western release just yet, but Japanese fans will be able to pick up either a standard edition or a 'Samurai Warriors 4 DX 15th Anniversary Box'. It costs almost triple the price of the standalone game, but comes with all of the following:
- A copy of Samurai Warriors 4 DX for PlayStation 4 or Switch
64-page art book
- Soundtrack and music video set including four CDs featuring background music from the Samurai - Warriors series, and four DVDs featuring music videos that mix event scenes with background music from each title, all housed in a special case
- 144-card postcard set featuring illustrations used for “Treasure Box” editions of previous Samurai Warriors titles
