TOKYO--When Shin Sangoku Musou 4 hits Japanese stores on February 24, fans can choose between the regular release and a special-edition package called Treasure Box. Those treasures include the game, the soundtrack, a character-illustration book, a set of character-based trading cards, and a figure of the warlord Ryofu. The Treasure Box will cost 13,440 yen ($130), almost double the price of the regular edition, which is 7,140 yen ($68).
Sengoku Musou 4 will feature two new characters: Souhi, the son of Sousou, and Seisai, the daughter of Chouhi. As reported earlier, the game also includes some new features, such as a new fighting style called musou kakusei (fantasy awakening). The game will also offer players three new types of base camps that can be used as staging grounds for attacking and defending as well as for replenishing their supplies.
The American version of the game, called Dynasty Warriors 5, is slated for release in March. GameSpot will provide more information as it becomes available.
