There's probably a reason Musou Stars, the next game out of Koei Tecmo's Warriors series, doesn't yet have a launch date in the west, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
I mean, cats. We have cats here, too, right? Who doesn't get cats?
And gambling! C'mon, Americans loooove to gamble. Three sevens on a slot machine is jackpot, that's kind of a universal language.
OK, alright, I will say I was a little flummoxed by the choo-choo train that sucks up people and ejects them from its smokestacks. But again, as a citizen of the country that invented Amtrak, I know a train is capable of wrecking shit, so I interpreted its combat prowess contextually.
In all seriousness, these are three combat gameplay shorts for Musou Stars featuring (in order)
- Nobu Oda from Samurai Cats, a 2011, browser-based feline adaptation of the Nobunaga's Ambition series.
- Rio, from the Rio pachinko games (hence the gambling motifs)
- And Millennia, from the Deception series.
There are about 20 more fighters on the roster. The game launches March 2 on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. In Japan. Not here.
