'Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada' (ALL) Details Castle Town Features - Screens & Trailer

Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada is a new adventure based on the heroic legend of the Sanada Clan, a cunning group of warriors from Sengoku Era Japan who believed in survival at all costs.

A historically inspired action title set in Sengoku era Japan – the storied historical period also known as the Age of Samurai – Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada focuses solely on the legendary Sanada Clan. Through their fierce will to survive, they fought with upmost vigilance to ensure that the Sanada name would be withheld throughout history.

The tale of the Sanada Clan begins with patriarch Masayuki Sanada, a much-requested character who joins the Samurai Warriors series for the first time. The player follows Masayuki’s first battle, trailing the clan’s meteoric rise from lowly vassals to powerful lords which led to the birth of the fan-favorite samurai, Yukimura Sanada. Continuing the clan’s legacy, players will then journey from boyhood as the legendary warrior, following his footsteps as Yukimura rises to the title of “The Crimson Demon of War.” Players will also experience the epic tale of his father’s reign and his finest battles, up to his valiant final stand at the Siege of Osaka.

While pure natured yet reckless as a child, Yukimura strived throughout his life to give his best for the Sanada Clan. Both he and his brother Nobuyuki were determined to be as wise as their father, and the pair diligently trained together to follow in his footsteps.


In SAMURAI WARRIORS: Spirit of Sanada, players will witness life in a Castle Town as it grows from a quiet and peaceful village to bustling and prosperous city. Players can reside there during missions and prepare for the next battle as well as talk to the officers and townspeople to gain a deeper insight into their daily lives. The fear of war and the celebration of victory both have their own effects on the morale of the people encountered, and some will ask for help with their troubles by offering missions.

The Castle Town expands throughout the course of the story, granting a greater array of facilities for players to utilize. The Blacksmith can improve and upgrade weapons to grant an upper-hand in combat, Stables allow for horses to be purchased and prepared for the next mission, Shops sell rare and unique items which will replenish an officer’s energy, and the Dojoprovides a training ground where one can learn new skills or enhance older ones. At the Teahouse, Warriors can chat with one another and exchange gifts. Finding the correct gift will result in raised favor with another officer which allows them to join your forces on the front line.

Players can accrue materials through compelling mini games and use them across the town’s facilities. Planting seeds and harvesting ingredients in the Hoeing mini-game produces rare goods which cannot be found on the battlefield, Fishing allows officers to approach a body of water to catch a wide variety of different fish breeds to use as gifts, and the Jinzō offers an entertaining version of the traditional shell game.

Fans who pre-order Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada from Amazon, Best Buy, EB Games, or GameStop will receive a selection of five special costumes: the Kunoichi, Ina, Kai, and Chacha Sanada Colors Costumes, as well as the Kunoichi Special Costume.

More information about the game’s plot, key mechanics, and many playable characters will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
