Koei Tecmo announced that Dynasty Warriors 9 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam in North America and Europe on February 13, 2018!
In Japan, Dynasty Warriors 9 was previously dated for a PlayStation 4 release on February 8, 2018.
Pre-orders for the physical or standard digital version of Dynasty Warriors 9 will include a bundle of seven costumes: an imposing Beijing opera-style costume for Zhao Yun, and six costumes inspired by traditional Chinese undergarment styles for Guan Yinping, Diaochan, Sun Shangxiang, Lu Lingqi, Wang Yi, and Wang Yuanji.
Here’s a brief overview of the game, via Koei Tecmo’s press release:
Dynasty Warriors 9, is a brand-new installment in developer Omega Force’s acclaimed series of action titles. Unifying the classic, time-tested “one versus thousands” action iconic to the Warriors series with a variety of new features, characters and content in an expansive open world environment, Dynasty Warriors 9 aims to deliver the most immersive and ambitious experience to date.
The game introduces exhilarating new combat mechanics with the State Combo System. This new system allows players to perform three different attack styles – Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks – each dealing progressively more damage and aiming to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise.
Closely following real historical events and figures, Dynasty Warriors 9 will have players experiencing the story of the Three Kingdoms by completing key and secondary events over ten riveting chapters – beginning with the Yellow Turban Rebellion and through the ultimate unification of China.
