Okay, so you really have to be a fan of the series to appreciate this, but even so, it's worth noting.
Koei Tecmo plans to celebrate a decade of battling with the upcoming Samurai Warriors 4: 10th Anniversary Edition , which is scheduled to arrive on the PlayStation 4 in North America on October 24.
There's a Special Anime Pack that will retail for $74.99, if you're interested. Otherwise, the collectible edition includes a Blu-Ray copy of the "Samurai Warriors: Legend of the Sanada" anime, the official soundtrack CD, a bunch of character customization DLC, and of course, the game itself. Features include 55 new and updated characters, new in-battle maneuvers (including a powerful new Rage Attack), and all-new battle modes.
This really isn't a bad franchise at all; it's just very Japanese in style and tone, so you have to be into that sort of thing.
