Koei Media Day: Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War trailer

Seemingly tired of ancient China and Japan, Koei now moves to the epic conflict between England and France for Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War. When I first heard about this game, I’d assumed that it was Dynasty Warriors for Eurotrash, but this brand new trailer almost leads me to believe we will instead be seeing a spiritual successor to the Kessen series — and that’s not a bad thing, that’s a very, very good thing. If you’ve never played any of the Kessen games, I seriously suggest you try them out. The unique action/strategy series has a cult following for a reason.

While I’d love a button masher set during The Hundred Years War, I will definitely take a strategy game from Koei, a company that knows how to do a good console RTS.
