Tecmo Koei announced that the fourth entry in Omega Force's Samurai Warriors series is coming to the PlayStation 4, PS3, and PS Vita in North America and Europe this fall.

Boasting a roster of 55 playable characters inspired by figures from Japan's Warring States period, Samurai Warriors 4 adds several new modes and features to its hack-and-slash repertoire, including the quest-based Chronicle Mode and networked cooperative play across all supported platforms.

The release also marks Samurai Warriors' return to Sony's platforms after a brief absence. Though the series traces its origins back to the PlayStation 2,Samurai Warriors 3 premiered in 2010 as a Nintendo Wii exclusive, and the follow-up Samurai Warriors: Chronicles was available only for the Nintendo 3DS. Further details regarding Samurai Warriors 4 will be revealed at E3 next week.
