KOEI's Samurai Warriors 2 Empires to Ship on March, 16

KOEI has announced a European release date of March 16, 2007 for Samurai Warriors 2 Empires. The Tactical Action game set in Feudal Japan will be available for both the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. The Empires games have long been regarded as the deepest most tactical installment in the Warriors' series. Samurai Warriors 2 Empires takes these strategic foundations even further with more choices and opportunities for the player to shape policies and build an army capable of uniting all of the warring states within Japan under one ruler. This game balances the political and tactical machinations of preparing an army for battle with the spectacular battlefield action that the Warriors games are renowned for to provide an incredibly involving tactical action experience.

Samurai Warriors 2 Empires combines the most exciting aspects of Action, Fighting and Strategy games. Japan is divided into 25 warring states and it is up to you to resurrect a nation using equal amounts of strategy and strength! Before each battle, you will meet with their war council to discuss military and political affairs; then it's time for combat. Samurai Warriors 2 Empires is a tantalizing blend of strategy and true warrior action.

With a stylized recreation of Japan's Sengoku or "Warring States" era, Samurai Warriors 2 Empires is sure to captivate anyone fascinated by Samurai culture. Special events in the game chronicle major turning points in Japan's history including "The Honnōji Incident" where the powerful warlord Oda Nobunaga, met his demise, and "The Battle of Kawanakajima", considered the largest and most prolonged encounter of the Warring States era.

In addition to the game's main Empire Mode, Samurai Warriors 2 Empires includes a "Free Mode", which allows you to choose any stage and fight through it using any officer in the game. The game's "Archives" offers an extensive gallery overflowing with rare artwork, CG sequences, and detailed information on tactics and formations, as well as visual and voice samples of all officers and troops within the game.
