New gameplay footage has surfaced for Samurai Warriors 5, the latest entry into the hack and slash series developed by Omega Force and KOEI Tecmo. Whether it is Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, Hyrule Warriors, or others, there are plenty of Warriors-style games that many enjoy. But even though there have been quite a few spin-offs as of late, fans have waited a while for Samurai Warriors 5, so finally seeing new gameplay is something that many will be grateful for.
Samurai Warriors 5 was confirmed during a Nintendo Direct last month, and the game will be headed to the Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Fans have been anticipating the fifth entry in the series for quite some time, as Samurai Warriors 4 was released back in 2014. This game is set to be a fresh re-imagining of the franchise, and the newest footage sets the table for what fans can expect.
Recently a live stream for Samurai Warriors 5 was announced and took place on March 24. The stream covered a lot about the game, including loads of high-octane gameplay that fans of the Warriors franchise should certainly enjoy.
The live stream and the gameplay footage give a hint at the new storyline, altered character design, change in visual style, and more. Fans of the series should have a lot to look forward to with Samurai Warriors 5, and the wait should not be too much longer, as the hack and slash game is set to release over the summer.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is finally here and fans are diving into Breath of the Wild’s beautiful world in grand Musou fashion. So far, the early impressions of Age of Calamity have been fairly positive, though it seems the Switch’s limited performance capabilities handicap the game in some instances.
Now it seems those positive impressions are translating into some impressive sales reports. According to the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity’s official Japanese Twitter account, the game is the best selling Musou game ever made.
According to early sales reports, Age of Calamity’s sales have already smashed the previous best-selling Musou games across the board. Koei Tecmo confirmed in a report to Famitsu that Age of Calamity shipped 3 million units worldwide during its opening weekend. For those who may not be familiar with the Musou genre of games, it is simply the Japanese name for Koei Tecmo’s trademark Warriors game series. Koei Tecmo’s Musou games are iconic for a handful of series staples, like it’s frenetic action-packed combat and the hoards of enemies that players hack and slash their way through.
Though the traditional Warriors games haven’t made enormous waves over in the West, Koei Tecmo’s recent partnership with Nintendo has been a huge boon. The first Hyrule Warriors title released on the Nintendo Wii U did as well as one could hope for on a console with a lackluster install base, but the game’s eventual Switch port did much better. Still, early sales reports confirmed that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was outpacing the original Hyrule Warriors in the UK by over 300 percent. That’s an incredibly impressive number which only means good news for both Hyrule Warriors and Breath of the Wild.
