Samurai Warriors 5 Release Date: When is Samurai Warriors 5 out?

Samurai Warriors 5 Release Date

First revealed during the February 2021 Nintendo DirectSamurai Warriors 5 will finally be coming out soon in Japan. Known as Sengoku Musou in Japan, Samurai Warriors 5 reboots the series. The game will feature a tighter roster, focusing more on mastering the new formula. SW5 will be a great way to get into the series, and even long-time fans will get their button-mashing fill in this game.

Sengoku Musou 5 Release Date: June 24, 2021

The Japanese version of Samurai Warriors 5 will be coming out first. With a release date of June 24, 2021, you will have to know how to read Japanese to experience Sengoku Musou 5 early. The game will be coming out on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with no news about next-gen releases. We can expect an expansion version coming out to next-gen consoles eventually. Previous Musou games had Xtreme or Empire versions that expand upon the base game with new content and features. However, given that Samurai Warriors 5 will be a reboot of the series, there’s also a possibility that Koei Tecmo is having a different approach to this game’s expansions and DLCs.

Samurai Warriors 5 Release Date: July 27, 2021

Meanwhile, the Steam version, as well as the English Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of Samurai Warriors 5 won’t be coming out until July 27, 2021. In today’s globalized world, it’s a bit surprising that games could still come out earlier in Japan. It’s not a very long wait by any means – the extra month could be used for better localization and translations.

Samurai Warriors 5 reboots the franchise. Featuring 27 main characters and 10 support characters, the game reduces the roster in favor of a more focused story. The game will spend its time exploring the rise of 16th-century Feudal Japan warlord Nobunaga Oda and his subsequent demise at the Incident at Honnō-ji, where his retainer betrayed and assassinated him at the peak of his power.

The game features a stylistic Japanese watercolor style, striking compared to previous versions. It also introduces new features and gameplay mechanics, meant to mix things up on the tried and tested button-mashing Musou gameplay style.
