Samurai Warriors 4, the upcoming brawler set in Feudal Japan, has three newly confirmed characters: Takatora Todo, Kagakatsu Uesugi, and Munenori Yagyu.

Koei, the developer of Samurai Warriors, is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its popular franchise.

"Samurai Warriors was conceived around this time as a spinoff of the Dynasty Warriors series," Hisashi Koinuma posted on the Playstation Blog, "In February 2004, the first ever Samurai Warriors launched on PS2.

There was a lot of excitement and hype for the title and the game sold more than one million copies in its first month of release in Japan, establishing Samurai Warriors as a key franchise for Koei Tecmo."

Koinuma also spoke about the new features that will be available to fans of the game.

The Samurai Warriors franchise is known for the frenetic pace at which you can slay enemies, all of whom cower before your dominating presence on the battlefield.

Koinuma stated, "Speaking about the evolution of the series, in addition to new characters, we always strive for an ever-evolving battle system to create the most exhilarating combat possible.

In Samurai Warriors 4, some examples include Hyper Attacks which combine rapid movement on the battlefield with high-powered attacks, deadly finishing moves with Mighty Strikes, and the ability to switch between characters in real-time, broadening gameplay within the massive map that awaits players."
