When will Samurai Warriors 5 release on Nintendo Switch?

Samurai Warriors 5 is headed to the Nintendo Switch alongside (hopefully) warmer weather.

Samurai fans have reason to rejoice after the Nintendo Direct broadcast last Wednesday, Feb 17. Samurai Warriors 5, the most recent main series release, is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. The only real question is: when can players get in on the intense historical action?

Samurai Warriors 5 Nintendo Switch Release Date

Samurai Warriors 5 will release on the Nintendo Switch sometime in Summer 2021. However, there is no exact date nor any information circulating on what that date could be.

In this fifth installment, players can follow the stories of military commanders Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi during the Ōnin War within the golden era of the Sengoku period. The game has undergone superior renovation with improved visuals, characters, and stories fit for Nintendo's latest handheld console.

New and returning heroes from Samurai Warriors will be making appearances throughout the plot as players engage in captivating, strategic combat on iconic battlefields from history. With each passing moment, enemy forces grow in strength and seek to overwhelm the military—meaning players will have to keep on their toes to hold onto the upper hand.

Up to two players can engage in Samurai Warriors 5 at a time.
