Game Features

1. Become an unrivalled warrior in civil war Japan

Samurai Warriors: State of War is set in civil war Japan, when great commanders such as Nobunaga Oda, Shingen Takeda, and Kenshin Uesugi struggled for control of the country. Arm yourself with classic Japanese weaponry such as katanas and shuriken, and launch into the chaos of 16th century Japan.

The action is relentless, and ranges from massive open-field warfare to sieges of trap-laden castles. With a variety of unique characters, moves, and environments, Samurai Warriors: State of War will give you an unrivalled taste of Japan's most volatile era.

2. A rich tapestry of characters await

Many prominent figures from Japanese history make their appearance in Samurai Warriors: State of War, including the legendary soldier Yukimura Sanada, the revolutionary Nobunaga Oda, and the enigmatic ninja Hattori Hanzo. Each character has signature weapons and skills, as well as their unique role to play in this dramatic epic.

Exclusive PSP Features

1. All-New Story System

Samurai Warriors: State of War offers an all-new story structure that lets you align your characters with a specific army corps. Select a corps for your character, and guide them through a series of tactical and action stages.

There are six playable characters at the start, with many more characters and story paths to unlock.
