Samurai Warriors Chronicles gets online co-op, DLC

Recommended Videos

First Strikeforce, then Dynasty Warriors 7, and now Samurai Warriors Chronicles. It seems Tecmo Koei is intent on dragging its Warriors series into the modern day, with online co-op modes becoming more regular. Chronicles is the latest to get it, bringing some two-player fun to the Nintendo 3DS.

In Chronicles, you strategically position four characters on a map and can switch between them at any time. It’s not yet clear if the second player will simply have access to one of the four characters, or bring a whole new team to the game. We do know, however, that co-op battles will be more difficult, and yield superior in-game rewards.

In addition to co-op, extra stages will be available as downloadable content, and you can even use StreetPass to indulge in some PvP multiplayer. 

I’ve been a little skeptical about this entry to the Warriors franchise, but I love what I’m hearing here. Looks like this could be a good one.
