Samurai Warriors 5 is the latest entry in the Musou series from KOEI TECMO Games. It is available on multiple platforms including PC via Steam. As we have come to expect from KOEI TECMO, the quality of ports can vary from anything to extremely basic, or decent like Nioh 2.

Steam users seem to be happy with the title, as it has Very Positive reviews. It also has a demo that players interested in the game can try out. It also has positive reviews from critics, with a Metacritic score of 76%.

Fixing the Samurai Warriors 5 Fullscreen Issue

If you have a multi-monitor setup, you may be running into issues with how the game shows up. If you have the fullscreen option enabled, Samurai Warriors will show up on the second screen. This is a problem because most users want the game to show up on the first screen. To fix this, Steam users have found a solution.

  • First, disable your second monitor
  • Launch Samurai Warriors 5 and select the Fullscreen Option
  • It will automatically show up on your first screen
  • Now, shut down the game, and turn your second monitor back again
  • Now that both monitors are on, launch the game again

It will now show up on the first screen, as intended. This is a simple fix, for an annoying issue. We hope that the developers patch it in any way, where it defaults the game to the first screen if a user has a multi-monitor setup.
