Koinuma-san also discussed briefly about the upcoming still unannounced Samurai Warriors 5, while no proper reveal has been made, we do have some concrete information on the title itself. Right now Samurai Warriors 5 is in the “Trial and Error” phase of development, where they are testing and playing around with mechanics to see what works well and how they want to take the series.
KOEI Tecmo have also confirmed via the broadcast that an official reveal for the game may not be ready until sometime in 2020. However there was a little bit of hope that it might happen this year. Aside from all that, development has been progressing smoothly and Koinuma-san hopes you will look forward to when they can finally show it off to the public.
As a reminder they also wanted to push once more that Samurai Warriors 4 DX is releasing March 14th on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan.
What do you hope to see in Samurai Warriors 5? Are you excited for the eventual reveal? Let us know in those comments!
The game is looking pretty great. However there is still no news if this title will be making its way to the West, you can import the game for either console due to them being region free. This title unlike Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet won’t be receiving an English language version in Asia.
The game itself launches March 14th for both Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan.

KOEI Tecmo Japan have announced that they will be holding a very special broadcast for the 15th Anniversary for their Samurai Warriors series. The broadcast itself will be happening on February 6th, and will be hosted on both YouTube and Periscope.
Along with the broadcast, you can expect the following to be a part of it:
–Producer Hisashi Koinuma’s live commentary on the Samuari Warriors series’ 15-year journey
–Live gameplay of the series’ successive titles
–15th anniversary collaboration news
–Direct talk with Koinuma! A live presentation corner about desired playable officers
Keep in mind that the broadcast will be purely in Japanese, however it is exciting to think what could be in store for event, perhaps even an announcement of the much rumoured Samurai Warriors 5. As of right now we only have Samurai Warriors 4 DX coming out in Japan with no Samurai Warriors news currently for the West.
You can check out the livestream itself via YouTube here:
The broadcast itself will go live 21:00 JST until roughly 23:20 JST. This is 12PM(UTC), 9AM(EST) and 7am(PST).

Samurai Warriors 4 DX has been announced to arrive in Japan on March 14th 2019 for both Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. This will be the first time the game will be hitting the Switch, while for PS4 owners you’ll have the added benefit of having over 150 pieces of DLC included.
The DLC included will be all the costumes, background music packs, weapon skins and new scenarios. Both platforms will now have the full complete package in one price. As well in Japan, the game will be getting the usual “Treasure Box” treatment, that’ll come with a juicy 64 page artbook, full soundtrack CDs and a 144 postcard set.
No word if this will be releasing in the West, and we can’t really know for sure if it will as Dynasty Warriors 8 Definitive Edition is making it’s way west on Switch, but the past Samurai Warriors title (Spirit of Sanada) has yet to be localised on the Switch. Perhaps with it coming to PS4 also it will boost it’s chances but we’ll have to wait and see.
Quick note, this is unrelated to the promised announcement coming on 6th December.
