Koei Tecmo has today released new details for the upcoming Samurai Warriors: Spirit Of Sanada, specifically around Castle Town, the hub of the game, a place in which players will witness life in a Castle Town as it grows from quiet and peaceful to bustling and prosperous.
Over the course of the story, the Castle Town expands, granting a greater array of facilities for players to utilise. The Blacksmith uses materials to 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 health and musou gauges, and the Dojo provides a training ground where one can learn new skills or enhance older ones. A Teahouse is also present, here officers can talk with one another and exchange gifts. Finding the correct gift will result in raised favour with another officer which allows them to join forces on the front line.
Players can gather material 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 Shell game.
The game is due for release on PlayStation 4 on May 26
