SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 features 27 playable characters, including both new and returning warriors, from leyasu Tokugawa and Hideyoshi Hashiba to No, and Yoshimoto Imagawa. Original character Mitsuki, a Koga Ninja, has also been added, with further characters to be announced in the lead up to launch. All of the game's character designs have been completely redesigned and re-imagined to help fit the storyline's Sengoku time period.
The intense high-action drama unfolds during the Sengoku period of Japan and tells the story of two of the most pre-eminent military commanders of this period - Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi. SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 features various eras from this period, including the younger years of Nobunaga, when he was known as "Owari's Great Fool," and the period of turmoil and upheaval leading to the Honno-ji Incident.
Enjoy all-new Musou actions, including the newly designed Musou Frenzy Attacks, which elevate the thrill of blowing away hordes of enemy soldiers. These actions are displayed in a vibrant new Japanese ink painting art style, elegantly evolving the SAMURAI WARRIORS series to showcase the Sengoku period in stunning fashion as the intertwining stories of Nobunaga and Mitsuhide unravel on screen like a Sengoku period picture scroll.
SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 marks the first SAMURAI WARRIORS series game to launch on Nintendo Switch! Experience the electrifying 1 vs 1,000 action at home or on the go.
