Samurai Warriors 5

Koei-Tecmo have announced that Samurai Warriors 5 will be released on June 24th in Japan, and July 27th in Europe and North America.

Here’s the latest videos for the game (trailer + livestream recording), along with some details and some pictures:

SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 takes place after the end of the Ōnin War, during the Sengoku period, and tells the story of two of the most preeminent military commanders of this period – Nobunaga Oda, and Mitsuhide Akechi. This title includes various eras from this period, including the younger years of Nobunaga, when he was known as “Owari’s Great Fool,” and the period of turmoil and upheaval leading to the Honnō-ji Incident.

All of the game’s character designs have been completely redesigned and re-imagined to help fit the storyline’s Sengoku time period. In total, SAMURAI WARRIORS 5 features 27 playable characters, including both new and returning warriors, from Ieyasu Tokugawa and Hideyoshi Hashiba to Nō, and Yoshimoto Imagawa. Original character Mitsuki – a Kōga Ninja, has also been added, with other new characters to be announced at a later date.

In addition, all-new Musou actions have been added to the series – including newly designed Musou Frenzy Attacks – elevating the thrill of blowing away hordes of enemy soldiers in exhilarating fashion. These actions are displayed in a vibrant new Japanese ink painting art style, elegantly evolving the SAMURAI WARRIORS series to showcase the Sengoku period in stunning fashion as the intertwining stories of Nobunaga and Mitsuhide unravel on screen like a Sengoku period picture scroll.

Tormented Souls

PQube have announced that Tormented Souls will be released at retail and on the Nintendo eShop in Europe and North America. No release date yet, but it’s coming later this year.

Here’s some more details:

Inspired by cult classic survival horrors from Resident Evil to Silent HillTormented Souls is a modern take on the fixed-perspective adventure. Lured to the small town of Winterlake by fate (or perhaps something altogether more sinister) play as Caroline as she fights for her life, for answers, and for an escape from the decrepit hell in which she finds herself.

Featuring improved control scheme and more dynamic camera, Tormented Souls strives to retain everything that made classic survival horror titles so beloved by fans whilst taking advantage of the power and depth of experience made possible by next gen hardware.

Welcome to Winterlake

While investigating the disappearance of twin girls in the small, isolated town of Winterlake – something terrible happens to Caroline Walker. Waking in the dead of night, naked in a bathtub – and hooked up to some decrepit medical equipment, Caroline must fight for her life as she explores the halls of an abandoned mansion turned hospital.

Keep Your Wits About You

Nothing is quite as it seems at Winterlake. Cleverly combine items to solve puzzles and use every resource available to explore the secrets of the mansion and its grounds.Mirrors provide a gateway to another place and time. Investigate even the seemingly mundane and discover ways to manipulate the very fabric of reality and seek escape.

You Are Never Alone in the Dark

The mansion may seem abandoned, but the deeper you venture, the more overwhelming the horrors within become. Dark forces and unspeakable creatures will do everything in their power to protect the secrets within. Remain vigilant, and use anything you can find to fight off the encroaching terrors of Winterlake.

Tormented Souls (Switch) comes out later this year in Europe and North America.
