Sengoku Musou 4 is the fourth main title of Omega Force's Samurai Warrior series and it's release marks the Tenth anniversary of said series. Travel back in time to the period of Japan's unification, but like all Musou games, it's one against a bajillion in the style that has captured hack and slash fans' hearts all around the world.

In Sengoku Musou 4, gameplay mechanics will feature the ability to switch between multiple characters while in battle, a "Quick Action" move which is a super fast starter for dizzying combos, the "Musou Gokui" which works as Awakening Musous and character exclusive "Rurou Enbu" - special attacks that lay waste to all who stand in your way. Much like other Musou games, expect this title to be just as content packed and exciting as the previous ones.
