Koei Tecmo has extensive experience working with Nintendo characters when it comes to its Warriors games. Both Zelda and Fire Emblem received their own games. Producer Masaki Furusawa says Nintendo representation was considered for Warriors Orochi 4, but ultimately decided against doing so.

Furusawa explained:

System: Switch
Release date: October 16, 2018
Developer: Omega Force
Publisher: Koei Tecmo

The Warriors series spans decades across a multitude of eras, spinoffs, and properties, and has become a cornerstone in what it means to have feel-good hack-and-slash gameplay that’s as fun as it is memorable and unique. Warriors Orochi itself – a crossover between the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series – is over ten years old now, and with each new entry has come new mechanics, more playable characters, and a story that’s as wacky as it is over-the-top with its action prowess. Warriors Orochi 4 has its biggest roster yet, spanning 170 characters across both series each with their own era, specialty, class, weapon, and fighting style. The biggest difference between this and other entries, however, is the inclusion of magic, which really helps to change things up and introduce a fresh and exciting way to execute moves and combos out on the battlefield.

New Switch footage of Warriors Orochi 4 has emerged and in English. View 45 minutes of gameplay in the video below.

Warriors Orochi 4 is out in the west today, and Koei Tecmo has readied a new trailer to celebrate. You can view it below.
