Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 is just a few short weeks away from release North America and Europe, and Tecmo Koei have provided details on the games edit mode, which allows players to design their own character from the ground up, from facial details to weapons and armour.

The official synopsis, which comes from a press release, reads as follows;

Edit Mode

Among the key features of the game is the edit mode, where the player can create their own character. Being implemented from the fan-favorite version released with Samurai Warriors 4, the edit mode allows for a very deep level of customization and vast selection of facial features, armor, weapons and accessories. What is unique in Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 though, is that for the first time players will be able to equip their customized characters with the default costumes of the famous warriors they befriend!

Creating and maintaining relationships with officers and warriors is a very important part of Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3, as it allows players to listen in to their thoughts and plans and affect them to their desired effect. In that way the game takes a different turn, as the story mode is completely in the players’ hands and the outcomes of battles, alliances, and ultimately the conclusion of the game, is altered by their actions.

Also included in the press release were some new gameplay videos showing off customised characters, which you can watch below;

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 launches in Europe on June 24th with a North America release following shortly afterwards on June 30th. Be sure to stay tuned to The Vita Lounge for a review in the coming weeks, but in the meantime check out a new gallery of screenshots below.
