First, Koei brought us the Dynasty Warriors series, Then, spinning out of that, we got the Samurai Warriors series. Now, spinning it a bit further, we've got Samurai Warriors: Katana for the Wii, Koei's latest excursion into the Feudal East.
Players are dropped into the Feudal era of Japan. There, they must engage in all manner of activities, ranging from fending off pirates as they attack your ship, to rescuing damsel types from a burning castle, to heading underground to stalk around caverns filled with deadly ninja.
The game rolls out from a third person viewpoint, putting your sword (well, katana, to be specific) firmly in your hand. There are eight different weapons in total (including your trusty blade) to get to grips with, including the spear and war hammer for the up close and mucky stuff, and a bow and arrow, a gun and a cannon for when you're doing your dirty work from a distance.
Koei promises 30 hours of gameplay for you to get your teeth into. Included in that are 'Musou Mode' (or story mode, if you prefer), trial mode in which gold can be earned to get yourself some upgrades, and Vs mode, complete with eight mini games.
