Nintendo have decided to publish Koei's latest Samurai Warriors game. Here's the PR:

REDMOND, Wash., March 16, 2010 - Nintendo today announced a unique partnership with Tecmo Koei to publish Samurai Warriors™ 3, the newest title in the Samurai Warriors franchise, exclusively for the Wii™ console.

Launching in North America in fall 2010, Samurai Warriors 3 is an evolution of the Warriors series, featuring an innovative new game mode and a completely fresh storyline. In addition to a host of new characters and combat and game-play elements, the game also will test players with new tactical and strategic challenges on the battlefield.

Samurai Warriors 3 offers two-player online and offline co-op with enhanced sharing features. The game also uses a special new game mode that offers players unique control of characters never seen before. This game mode is based on the Famicom game Nazo no Murasamejo (The Mysterious Murasame Castle™) inspired by Nintendo video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto.

Yay, online 2 player co-op as well. Here's a trailer of the Japanese version:

It looks a lot slower than previous games. Still excited for it but they took out Kojiro and Musashi :(
