Product Details:

The legend of the samurai comes to life like never before with immersive battles featuring 3D graphics Samurai Warriors Chronicles takes the fan favorite series into uncharted territory with 3D graphics and new gameplay improvements that will bring this franchise to the next level. In the game, players will be able to change control between four different warriors on the fly, easily switching between characters by touching the Nintendo 3DS touch panel. Teamwork is a key focal point of the game, as the secret to success lies in positioning your team on the battlefield wisely. There are also friendship levels between the various characters that will ultimately guide where the story goes and how battles play out, so helping others has its rewards. Samurai Warriors Chronicles is set to help usher in the Nintendo 3DS by providing tactical action like you've never seen! Through deep combat, multiple branching storylines and a living 3D battlefield, the legend of the samurai lives on...

  • Control the Battlefield: As general, you have complete control over the tide of battle. Choose and switch between four strategically placed warriors on the battlefield as the situation dictates. With this much control over your army, there is no war you cannot win...
  • Experience a New Tale of a Classic Era: Players can play through classic history, through a story taking place in the epic Warring States period of Japan. During their battles and interactions, players will form bonds with historical figures that will open new scenarios, forging their own unique story. Connect with Other Players: Through StreetPass Mode you can form an army of four warriors and have them fight with armies of other players who you pass by in real life. Depending on how many times you battle, and your results, you can win new items.
  • Morale and Friendship: Take care of your comrades, and they'll take care of you. As you complete specific missions on each battlefield, you will lower the enemy morale making them easier to conquer. Using some warriors more than others, and how you interact with characters, will affect your friendship with particular characters and open up new endings for the game and unique cutscene interactions.
  • 3D Graphics Make Battles Come Alive: Thanks to the 3D capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS, players will experience a living battlefield like none they've ever seen. Gorgeous graphics and stunning 3D effects will immerse you in the world of the samurai.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Essentially, Japanese Dynasty Warriors. It's a pretty good game, with a large variety of characters and attacks. It's very plot driven, with your choices determining several factors in the game. I love Hideyoshi and his Heaven Staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Button Beater With a Challenge This is a simple to learn game, but it can get very busy as you gain more "friends". Killing the onslaught of enemys is fairly straight forward. However you have to plan out how to complete the required tasks and keep your team alive in the process. The bosses are a challenge, and you have to pay attention to the sounds as this is the only notice you'll get if a team member is under attack. They'll die if you don't get into control of them quickly. Quite simply this is a hack and slash game in a large area with objectives to complete or you loose. Only gripe I have is there's no multiplayer mode.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The BEST Launch Game For 3DS Yes, even better than Street Fighter. You get to be a boy or girl, who even have different attacks, and you go around Medieval Japan, hopping from army to army, with apparently no loyalty to any area, meeting real people from that era, such as Nobunaga Oda, and Takadatsu Honda. In the battles, you are given objectives, but the ultimate goal is defeat the enemy commander! You are controlling 4 people, where u decide where they go and can hop control of them when needed. All speaking is in Japanese with sub-titles, adding to the authenticness. After completing the story you can go through with any characters and get new items and horses and...just alot of stuff. There is a cool Streetpass/Spotpass feature that helps you get more items. I highly recommend this underrated game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game I was looking up reviews of this game from online sites, such as IGN(But I dont really like IGN for their reviews) and saw this game had only 7's and such. I asked my friend if it was good, he convinced me, I picked it up after christmas, starting playing, and man, I was hooked. I loved reading the actual stories of what happened and then fit into the story with your mane character(Although, I know Japanese didn't have magical powers and such) I loved the events with different characters, events that make you have a closer relationship with the warlords and such The CGI cutscenes were amazing. The game was still in Japanese voicing, but that just made it even more great. Overall, for a game that came out around launch, I play this WAY MORE than my other favorite games from the past couple of months such as Mario Kart 7, and Super Mario 3D Land. I've never played any Samurai Warriors game, never played any Hack-and-slash games(I used to think they would get boring) But, OH MAN, this game is a great first for the 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute GREAT FUN!! This game is reeeaaally underrated. The content you can get from interacting with the commanders after battles, makes this game even more fun. The weapon customization is great, the things you unlock is very fun, and the outfits you get as you go on with the story are awesome. Not to mention, the story line is great. The sound is not perfect, along with the sound, but this game is absolutely worth playing!
