About Samurai Warriors 2 Xtreme Legends

The Samurai Warriors are back with a vengeance! This latest installment features six legendary samurai- each with their own storyline and powerful new weapons. With the introduction of Mercenary mode, the redesigned battlefields of “Okehazama” and “Shikoku”, and new charge attacks, fans now have even more reasons to come back and join the fight.

SW2XL introduces six new playable characters to the series, including Toshiie Maeda, Gracia, Motochika Chosokabe, Katsuie Shibata, Kojiro Sasaki, and Yoshimoto Imagawa.

In the new Mercenary mode, players will get the chance to hire other samurai to fight alongside them.

SW2XL can be “remixed” with Samurai Warriors 2 (SW2) to add new Xtreme Legends features to SW2 (sold separately). With the Remix feature, players can use the characters from SW2 in SW2XL. Players can also play SW2’s Story mode, Survival mode and Sugoroku modes using SW2XL’s new characters. The Remix feature also increases character growth level maximums from 50 to 70, adds new charge attacks and adds a 5th weapon level to each of the original Samurai Warriors 2 characters.

Developed by Omega Force, KOEI’s award-winning internal team, SW2XL is a 1-2 player game, with 2-player Co-op in Story and Free modes. SW2XL is rated “T” (Teen- Mild Language, Violence), by the ESRB.
