From Dynasty Warriors’ Akihiro Suzuki
Next you’re going to tell me someone is remaking Runaway with Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons. Well, that would be less surprising. What’s a random movie from 2007? Someone’s going to remake Stardust? In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale? How about Righteous Kill, but 50 Cent plays all three main characters?
Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War, from Koei and Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force, took place in 14-15th century France and England. While you were dropped on large, old timey battlefield, it’s not a Dynasty Warriors button masher, but a strategy game. Jim Sterling liked it well enough.
An enhanced version, Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War & Nightmare, is on the way to unannounced platforms. Akihiro Suzuki told Famitsu its core features will see tweaks, while new features will be announced down the line.
Meanwhile, Square refuses to remake Bushido Blade.
