Koei Tecmo has released new videos with emphasis on the character substitution and castle customization features for the upcoming epic strategy title, Samurai Warriors 4 Empires. Planned for release across on March 11, 2016 the game will be available for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
With character substitution players will be able to fully create and customize their playable character – including appearance, leadership, wisdom, or politics attributes, and move sets, as well as personalized family crests, Musou kanji, and portraits uploaded from a hard drive. In addition, these characters will be fully immersed in the drama of the era, meeting and becoming part of the lives of historical figures (either as friends or foes). Gamers will also be able to swap an historical character with a custom character in unlocked movies and cut scenes, creating a more complete player experience.
To further the level of customization in Samurai Warriors 4 Empires, Omega Force has included advanced Castle Customization in the game, meaning that apart from building a Castle to their specifications, players can also decorate it with unlockable decorative wallpapers, or with banners that can be collected by completing missions. These banners often offer extra bonuses, such as increased income, supplies, commerce, fame etc.
