Samurai Warriors 4 cast videos show Ginchiyo Tachibana

Samurai Warriors 4′s latest character trailer introduce Ginchiyo Tachibana, a man who is married to Ginchiyo Tachibana, and a guy who has nothing to do with Ginchiyo Tachibana.

You may remember Ginchiyo Tachibana from such Samurai Warriors adventures as “holy shit is that chick calling down lightning”, “what the fuck everyone is being electrocuted” and “you’re telling me this badass really lived and led her clan despite being a woman? Why does anybody ever choose anyone else”. Fond memories.

Also included in this batch of character reveals is Muneshige Tachibana, who married Ginchiyo, putting an end to her career and therefore earning himself the title of “least popular new Samurai Warriors cast member ever”. If these two go all lovey-dovey in game I will be violently sick. At least he’s pretty bishy.

Meanwhile, here’s Munenori Yagyu, a Tokugawa supporter who practices iaido, a badass martial art about drawing, striking, and sheathing, with none of that inefficient flailing about.

Samurai Warriors 4 is coming to PlayStation 3 and Vita in Japan on March 20. If it doesn’t release in the west, we will be both surprised and deeply disappointed.

Thanks, Siliconera.

    Finally, more of my favorite character in the whole Warriors set of games (that being Ginchiyo).

    I’m still disappointed they introduced Muneshige so soon, I felt a lot more could’ve been done with her cool warrior woman attitude pre-Muneshige, but ah well. Not that being with Muneshige somehow makes her not a cool warrior woman anymore, that’d be just silly. But I think the relationship takes a little focus on that stuff from her personality. Plus I think it risks future writers script writers getting Ginchiyo all wrong, as it’s become pretty clear over time that if something about a character from the original game isn’t established well enough, it gets tossed out like it doesn’t matter.

    My typical ravings aside, pretty bitchin cape she has there, the lightning effect is awesome, and I look forward to this game. Though based on past Namco practices, I’ll end up having to import it from Europe because the U.S. division has decided to try and force digital at full price on everyone.

    Also quick correction for a stupid mistake (again, edit button not here): it’s Koei, not Namco, that’s behind the Samurai Warriors games.
