The upcoming video game sequel will launch exclusively on PlayStation 4. It will be released on March 13, 2020. Yasuda revealed the reason why they did not rush the launch date, which was to ensure that they can achieve a genuine evolution from the first game. This mean that they had to bring in new elements while retaining the things that they felt were right from the first game. He did say that there were not enough significant changes in the Alpha, but they now feel they have come closer to their goals.

After that they will go to a stage called Sunomata, which is based from the original castle that was constructed by Hideyoshi in just one night.
