Electronic Arts has signed a distribution deal with Koei Corp. that will see it release Koei’s PlayStation 2 title, Samurai Warriors, in North America. Due out this May, the title was developed internally at Koei, by the same studio (Omega Force) responsible for creating the Dynasty Warriors series. Set in Feudal Japan around 1467, players will take on the role of samurai and ninja leader Sanada Yukimura, who leads his charges through Japanese battlefields. An Active Mission system promises unique aspects in every battle and “hundreds” of mini-missions will also be included.
