The Warriors-labeled series (also known as Musou) has gone in various directions both visually and mechanically. Being the sister title to the more famous Dynasty Warriors, it has been one such property that has also seen numbered entries, spinoffs, and crossovers. In the case of Samurai Warriors 5, this marks the first numbered game in seven years as well as a soft reboot of sorts with a new art direction and a wonderful streamlined system that makes it the most intuitive and accessible title in the series to date. And thanks to a slew of new features, it’s also one of the most enjoyable Musou experiences in quite some time on Switch.

Samurai Warriors 5 fans in the west will be able to try out the game with a newly-announced demo.

As announced by Koei Tecmo today, the demo is going live on July 20. Players can experience two stages with a choice of Hideyoshi Hashiba, No, Tokugawa Ieyasu, or Toshiie Maeda. Note that progress can be transferred to the final game.
