When the political power of the Ashikaga Shogunate collapsed in the succession dispute of 1467, the islands of Japan erupted in a series of major wars. This era in Japanese history became known as the Sengoku or "warring states" period. Samurai Warriors explores this dramatic era and combines it with the tactical action excitement KOEI has become known for. Players control Sanada Yukimura, who leads an elite band of samurai and ninja. Sanada's journey takes him to the hallowed Japanese battlefields of Okehazama and Kawanakajima and inside the embattled walls of Osaka Castle where he will come face-to-face with gun-toting troops, echelons of ninja, and deadly kunoichi (female ninja). Other playable characters are also available.
