You have a very important castle in Samurai Warriors 4: Empires

Samurai Warriors 4: Empires unifies its various strategic systems in a new dashboard called The Castle.


The Castle is where Samurai Warriors 4: Empires players will make all their decisions and actions pre- and post-battle. In other words, it’s where all the Empires stuff happens that separates the spin-off series from its source material.

As well as serving as a venue for internal and external policy decisions, the castle grows as you expand across the county, building from a couple of rooms to a proper Japanese stronghold.

It’s here you’ll assign tasks and titles to officers, sending them off toe recruit, attempt diplomacy, and more. Send skilled officers for better results, but keep an eye on relationships; friendlier officers will work better together. You may even trigger unique events with historically appropriate decisions. You can also consult with your advisors and – well, look at the screenshots, why don’t you?

Samurai Warriors 4: Empires is coming to PlayStation 3, PS4 and Vita on March 11. Only the PS4 version will be available on-disc.

Bonus section! As an Australian, whenever somebody capitalises The Castle I think of this. Happy Friday!
