KOEI announced earlier this morning that their [I]Samurai Xtreme Legends[/I] expansion pack for [I]Samurai Warriors[/I] has gone gold. While its main purpose is an expansion, the game can also be played alone without the original version of [I]Samurai Warriors[/I].
One of the big features for the expansion pack is the ability to use all 19 of the game’s characters in Free mode, along with a new story mode. In addition, the games new weapon system will now let players power up their tools of destruction by purchasing from a blacksmith or buying them outright. If that wasn’t enough, the developers went and redesigned the two player co-op modes too, so you now have the option of using separate Musou gauges along with using a single one.
[I]Samurai Xtreme Legends[/I] will be available for the PlayStation 2 and will ship to retailers on November 9.
