Game Profile - Samurai Warriors 4 on Sony PS Vita

Samurai Warriors 4, known in Japan as Sengoku Musou 4, is a hack and slash game by Tecmo Koei, and sequel to Samurai Warriors 3. While the game was confirmed to be in development for the PlayStation 3 as early as 2012, it was not until the SCEJA Press Conference in September 2013 that the game was officially announced, with a version for PlayStation Vita in addition to PlayStation 3, and was released on March 20, 2014 in Japan, while a PlayStation 4 port followed on September 4, 2014. It was also released in North America on October 21, 2014 and Europe on October 24, 2014. The game was made to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the series.

Like previous games in the series, the setting and story of Samurai Warriors 4 is centered on the Sengoku period of Japan, a period of much military conflict and political warfare where Japan was divided between regions ruled by daimyo that lasted from the middle of the 16th century to the early 17th century. The events depicted, however, are romanticized, and may or may not be factual; for example, Nobuyuki Sanada and his brother, Yukimura, are shown to participate in the Battle of Kawanakajima, even though both of them had not yet been born at that time. Many figures with little relevancy to the period, particularly the female figures who for the most part did not participate in any of the battles, have larger roles; Koshōshō, notable for being Motochika Chōsokabe's concubine in real life, becomes his primary rival in his conquest of Shikoku and is the representative of the Miyoshi clan in-game.

The earliest battle depicted in the game is the Battle of Itsukushima, fought between the Mōri clan and the Ōuchi clan in 1555, with the Siege of Osaka, fought between the Tokugawa shogunate and the Toyotomi clan in 1614-1615, as the closing battle of the game
