Today Koei Tecmo released a brand new batch of screenshots of Musou Stars, releasing for PS4 and PS Vita in Japan in 2017.
The story of the game is pretty simple. In order to bring back a mystical spring that gave prosperity to her realm, a princess attempts to summon a hero following the instructions in a fairy tale told by her mother.
Unfortunately the ritual goes wrong, and the heroes summoned by the princess find themselves scattered all over the realm. Alongside the princess there are two more vying for the throne, and the heroes end up divided in three factions, pitched against each other.
The characters introduced so far are Sanada Yukimura, from Samurai Warriors, Zhao Yun from Dynasty Warriors, Ouka from Toukiden, Sophie from Atelier Sophie, Kasumi from Dead or Alive, Millennia from the Deception series and Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden.
We get to see the map of the main story mode, where players will be able to proceed through the scenarios, and two different stages from Atelier Sophie and Toukiden.
The gameplay is the familiar one from the previous Musou games, combining square and triangle to perform attacks, but there are special moves that exploit each character’s unique style.
There will also be event scenes, in which the story will unfold, and conversations will happen between characters beyond the boundaries of their usual games.
