New Dynasty Warriors 9 Trailers Out

Koei Tecmo has released a new batch of gameplay trailers today for its upcoming open-world Musou game Shin Sangokumusou 8, which will be known as Dynasty Warriors 9 for the English version.

As we have seen in many other trailers so far, the clips focus on a single character, showing their deadly moves. For this round of trailers, the spotlight shines mostly on the Wei Faction with Zhenji, Cao Pi, and Xun Yu, with the addition of Lu Su and Lu Lingqi. If you’re wondering who Lu Lingqi is, that’s the daughter of the beast famous in the Hu Lao Gate stage, Lu Bu.

For those of you who aren’t aware, Dynasty Warriors 9 will have something that give the series  a breath of fresh air. The open world concept is meant to allow players to travel through China either on foot, horseback, and boat, and go through cities, towns, and the battlefield.

The characters are also expected to have their moveset revised so don’t expect a lot of the characters to play the same way as before. Furthermore, there will be side quests available which is said to make the main quests easier to go through.

Dynasty Warriors 9 will launch in Japan on February 8th 2018, exclusively for the PlayStation 4. The western release will drop just a few days later, on February 13th 2018. For the English version, we’ll also get 2 additional platforms for the game: Xbox One and Windows PC.


Pokdepinion: Honestly, being a huge fan of the Warriors series, I am very excited for Dynasty Warriors 9. The series has felt a bit stale in recent years so I’m hoping this one will help revitalize the series.
