KOEI TECMO Europe and developer Omega Force announced the addition of 10 new playable fighters in SAMURAI WARRIORS 5, adding in a collection of supporting characters who are now ready to join the battle in KOEI TECMO’s epic tactical-action experience. SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 is currently under development for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 Computer Entertainment System (playable on PlayStation 5 via Backward Compatibility), the Xbox One consoles (playable on Xbox Series X|S via Backward Compatibility), and Windows PC via Steam, and is set to launch across Europe on July 27, 2021.

The SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 characters announced today include ten former non-playable characters who are now ready to fight for the spotlight. These characters feature unique graphics, but since they are more of the game’s supporting cast and not part of the main storyline, they may not have the unique “Power Attacks” and other features that the previously announced 27 characters employ in battle. Nonetheless, these characters are fierce, and should not be overlooked when it comes to combat.

Members of the new supporting cast include everyone from Nobunaga’s younger brother, Nobuyuki Oda, to Motonari Mōri’s grandson, Terumoto Mōri. Additional historic figures will also be featured, including Motonobu Okabe, Katsuyori Takeda, Motoharu Kikkawa, Dōsan Saitō, Yoshitatsu Saitō, Yoshiaki Ashikaga, Yoshikage Asakura, and Fujihide Mitsubuchi.

In addition, KOEI TECMO confirmed that SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 will receive a slew of post-launch DLC, including all-new scenarios, BGM sets, and horses!

KOEI TECMO Europe has also previously revealed that fans of the SAMURAI WARRIORS series will be able to get their hands on two different must-have special editions of SAMURAI WARRIORS 5, exclusively available through the KOEI TECMO Europe Online Store. The Treasure Box version of SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 includes the game’s soundtrack, an art book, a selection of postcards (alongside a display case), a deluxe cloth poster showcasing the game’s vibrant new art style, and a copy of the game, all packaged into a samurai themed collector’s box.
