The latest title in the "Samurai Warriors" series, "SAMURAI WARRIORS: Spirit of Sanada", has arrived at last! All 48 years of the life of Yukimura Sanada, the officer hailed as Japans finest soldier, are fully depicted! Several characters that have been requested by fans join the battle, such as Yukimuras father, Masayuki Sanada. The depictions of characters change as they develop, adding flare to the story. Several new features are included, such as "Castle Towns", where you can experience the daily-lives and battles of officers in minute detail, as well as "Multi-Stage Battles"!
Sengoku Musou: Sanada Maru is a spinoff to Sengoku Musou (Samurai Warriors) 4 and the game of the 50-part Taiga drama 'Sanada Maru'.
As with all Musou titles you love them or you can't do anything with them. The big feature of this game is... the story. It has not small campaigns with 5 battles but a long continuous story about the Sanada family, more precisely Masayuki Sanada and his son Nobushige (Yukimura) Sanada and covers the time from the 4th Battle of Kawanakajima (1561) to the Osaka summer campaign (1615). The known battles are now divided into several levels and historically much more accurate than in the main row. br>
Gameplay innovations are: improved crafting for improving weapons, exploring between battles and exploring cities. In battles the Stratagems are new in order to gain an initial advantage. With Takeda Katsuyori, Tokugawa Hidetada, Lady Chacha and Sasuke new characters have been added.
Conclusion: Fans of Musou titles must of course strike. Who wants to experience the history of the greatest warrior of the Sengoku time also
<Who believes in the game it comes as in part 4 or in the anime to the fateful duel of the brothers at Osaka, who is wrong. This never happened. The biggest question for me is WHY TO THE DEVIL IS HIDEYORI TOYOTOMI NOT DABEI? One of the most important persons during the 'Osaka Uprising' is completely missing, although according to Wikipedia Lady Chacha was the pippeteer, Hideyori is still more important that he was in the spotlight. I thought that was really weak KT. (In SW 1-4, however, it is included)
