Koei Tecmo together with developer Omega Force has announced Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 will arrive for the Japanese 3DS later in the year. According to translations from this week’s Famitsu magazine, the hack and slash spin-off game will feature more than 50 military commanders seen in Samurai Warriors 4 – the latest game in the main series which was released in Japan earlier this year – along with new scenarios and character edit slots.
Aside from a tentative 2014 release date, Koei Tecmo has yet to specify when the game will launch. It’s not known whether the game will release outside of Japan but, with the arrival of Samurai Warriors 4 for western Sony systems later this year, there’s still a ray of hope for Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3. The game is set to launch on both the 3DS and PlayStation Vita for Japan.
