We're getting quite close to the launch of Dynasty Warriors 9 now, so you can expect to see at least several more videos like this one over the next few weeks. The gameplay's in Japanese, but it still gives us a decent idea of how the title's open world missions work. Basically, you're able to pick and choose between a bunch of different battles, each of them with their own objectives and challenges. The missions that you end up clearing will impact future clashes, too.

We won't be convinced that going open world was the right call until we get our hands on the final game, but again, we don't have long to wait until the game releases next month.
