KOEI Tecmo Europe began streaming a new trailer on Thursday for Warriors All-Stars that highlights the characters from the "Shiki Clan": Yukimura Sanada, Mitsunari Ishida, and Naotora Ii from the Samurai Warriors series; Ryu Hayabusa and Ayane from the Ninja Gaiden series; Hajime Arima and Darius from Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time; William from Nioh; and Shiki, an original character from Warriors All-Stars. The trailer showcases their different fight styles and abilities.
Koei Tecmo America will release the game in North America on PlayStation 4 and digitally for PC via Steam on August 29. Koei Tecmo Europe will release the game in Europe for the same platforms on September 1. The companies did not announce a Western release for the PlayStation Vita version of the game.
Those who pre-order Warriors All-Stars from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, or EB Canada will receive costume DLCs and an early-unlock for the playable character Opoona.
