If you've followed a certain Ninja series over the years, you've likely heard the name 'Sasuke' thrown around an awful lot. Koei Tecmo have given the famous moniker to a new character in SAMURAI WARRIORS: Spirit of Sanada - and he's a ninja, too.
Targeting a May 26 release, SAMURAI WARRIORS: Spirit of Sanada is the latest take on the group's time-tested "one versus thousands" combat with a heavier focus on a more personal storyline.
Announced through a brand-new trailer, we're shown more of the characters set to breathe new life into the classic formula with the most noteworthy being the aformentioned man - Sasuke; a Ninja, who would typically detest Samurai kind, that grows to be an integral part of Yakimura's group and the Sanada clan as a whole.

Between farming for food and getting to know the locals back in Castle Town, the tale of the Sanada clan will take Yakimura and his team into countless battles on a grander scale than most Warriors titles. Spanning a longer time period with 'Multi-Stage Battles' telling more expansive stories with 'Secondary Battlefields' being made available for those looking to see what goes on when the Sanada clan aren't fighting a particular battle.
