How Toyohisa joined the Tourney

Samurai Warriors 4 has him participate in his uncle's earliest campaigns in Kyushu, recklessly charging into the fray against their Tachibana adversaries at Mimikawa. Throughout the Kyushu chapter, Toyohisa is mentored by Yoshihiro and learns proper warrior conduct from him. Aspiring to someday become like his uncle and wishing to help his father, Iehisa, he disobeys the elders' wishes to stay home by fighting at Okitanawate. Since the youth obeys commands during battle and performs well, Yoshihiro complements him and permits him to join the clan's conquests of the island.

Moments after they conquer Kyushu by taking Iwaya Castle and Tachibanayama Castle, the Shimazu lose against Hideyoshi's massive army. Toyohisa protests the shame of surrender but abides to his uncle's decision. As a condition of their new alliance, Toyohisa later assists the Toyotomi attack in Oshu and Odawara Castle. Toyohisa is the only one upset by Mitsunari's blunt refusal and disrespect towards Yoshihiro the night before Sekigahara. In every iteration of the Sekigahara stage, the nephew will die fighting in battle to bide time for Yoshihiro's escape. The pre-rendered cinematic version of his final charge has him rescue his uncle from Tadakatsu before volunteering to be left for dead. He and a few Shimazu cavalrymen fire at the pursuing Eastern Army. Toyohisa shoots Naotora at point-blank range before he is slain by Tadakatsu. His final moments moves many to have sympathy for Yoshihiro.

His 4-II centric story echoes most of his actions in the previous title except for his self imposed rivalry with Naomasa. Toyohisa idolizes the general's conduct at Kyushu and seeks to befriend him. His desire to compete with Naomasa inspires Toyohisa to train and mature. He volunteers to be his uncle's rear guard at Sekigahara and proudly duels the pursuing Naomasa when Yoshihiro reaches safety. Toyohisa dies happy to have become a rival worthy of respect.

Before the second Tourney, Toyohisa learns that a brilliant scientist named Dr. Erich Rojak was kidnapped by a con artist to build shoddy monorails. Racing to the rescue, he soon competes with an Expendable named Hale Caesar.
