/Samurai and Ninja are Prepared to Strike in KOEI's First-Person

Burlingame, CA-- November 15, 2007 -- KOEI, recognized worldwide as the
premier brand of strategy and action games, today announced that
/Samurai Warriors®: KATANA/ for Nintendo Wii^(TM) will be coming to
North American retailers beginning January 15, 2008. Players can
pre-order the game now at GameStop.com, EBGames.com and Amazon.com.

"Samurai Warriors: KATANA thrusts players right into the heat of
battle," said Amos Ip, Senior Vice President of KOEI Corporation. "We're
inviting everyone to experience this amazing and dynamic first-person
adventure. By mastering different weapons using the motion-sensitive Wii
Remote^(TM), veteran and first-time players alike will discover a whole
new dimension of excitement from the Samurai Warriors series of games."

*About Samurai Warriors: KATANA*

Using an exhilarating first-person perspective, /Samurai Warriors:
KATANA/ is based on the hugely popular Samurai Warriors series and
delivers total arcade-style action right into your own home. Armed with
your motion-sensitive Wii Remote, you'll journey back in time to do
battle as a lethal samurai warrior.

On each mission, legendary samurai and allies will serve as your guide.
Prevent pirates from invading your ships, rescue maidens from a burning
castle, and explore mysterious caverns stalked by ninjas. These and many
more challenging missions require quick reflexes, fast thinking, and
precision marksmanship.

On the battlefield ninja assassins will be poised to strike at your
every turn, but with close-range and long-range weapons, you'll be well
equipped for your counterattack. Combat gets up close and personal with
the classic samurai sword, spear, and mighty war hammer, but you can
still target enemy soldiers in the distance using a bow and arrow, a
gun, and even a cannon.

/Samurai Warriors: KATANA/ offers three different modes of play.
Action-packed with nearly 30 hours of game play, Musou Mode takes you on
an incredible adventure through Feudal Japan. Samurai-in-training can
prepare for battle with a multitude of challenges in Trial Mode. Here
you'll earn gold which can be used to purchase weapons and precious
items. And in Vs. Mode, you can go head-to-head with a friend in eight
exciting mini games.

Developed by KOEI's award-winning internal team, Omega Force, /Samurai
Warriors: KATANA/ is rated "T" (Teen - Mild Language, Violence) by the
ESRB. /Samurai Warriors: KATANA/ has three difficulty levels for players
of all skill levels, and is for up to 2 players (in Vs. mode). This game
features Dolby® Pro Logic II audio. Media can find watermark-free assets
