Koei goes all digital distribution on us: Xtreme Legends to hit Xbox Live

Samurai Warriors Katana looks like something that is not a good thing

A veritable plethora of videos for Koei's first Wii effort, Samurai Warriors Katana, are now available on your Internet, and all I have to say right now is ... get them off my Internet. Now you know me, I love Koei with all m...

Koei Media Day: Samurai Warriors Katana trailer

Before the Nintendo Wii launched, Koei announced an exclusive title for the system called Samurai Warriors Wave. An announcement was almost all that was made before the game seemingly disappeared off the face of our world wit...
