The description of Legend Of Samurai Warrior
The game was planned to be dark and grim to set the mood.
The game's primary mode, Story Mode, is separated into 2 parts, regional stories, which tell the tales of the officers of various regions around the land such as Kyu and Shikoku, and the story of unification, which details events up to the end of the Warring States era. By way of contrast to previous games in the SW series, the battles and the stories surrounding them are portrayed by faction, allowing the dramatic relationships between characters to be explored in more depth than ever before. Experience the convictions, intertwining ambitions and motivations that each character bears for yourself.
Additionally, you can now issue individual orders to customize the behavior of each officer. A maximum of eight officers can be taken into battle, and by deepening relationships between officers, the player can freely switch between these characters. The ability to switch between as many as eight playable characters allows for greater variety and strategic depth in battle.
The game's director, the game's earliest prototype concept was to have four or five characters team up to fight a single boss. Instead of automatic growth, the game's growth system is slightly different. Weapons are no longer leveled up, instead they are found by defeating various generals. Characters also get experience boosts by finishing sub-missions, the number of KOs they get, and time they finish in.
Another difference from Samurai Warriors is that throughout a map, missions will appear that offer extra gold or experience used to develop the character used. Further changes include the addition of castle levels, in which each division in the castle only has one exit in each level. Most castles contain 5 sub-levels with a variety of enemies to defeat and booby traps ranging from cages, spikes, and wall blades all to get to the boss at the top(or the bottom, as the case may be
