Story and background
Samurai Warriors focuses on the Sanada brothers during the Sengoku era of Japan. In late 16th century, the era of civil war that tore Japan over two centuries is nearing its end and the regional warlords who survived the bloodsheds are ready for a final showdown. In the battlefield where your best ally turns out to be your worst enemy, only the shrewdest can come out alive.
Sanada Yukimura and Nobuyuki will be voiced by veterans Takeshi Kusao (Dragon Ball Z as Trunks) and Daisuke Ono (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders as Jotaro Kujo). KOEI Tecmo Games software development head Hisashi Koinuma is serving as chief production supervisor of the series, while Koujin Ochi (La corda d’oro) is directing.
Samurai Warriors will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience worldwide excluding Asia.
