Big trouble in big China
Dynasty Warriors as a series hasn't changed much over the years. Sure it's had its playable character roster expanded significantly, and it's had the odd combat system overhaul here and there, but the core concept has always remained the same: it's one super overpowered Chinese warrior (you) versus entire armies that flood...
But of course
In a move that is sadly nothing new for Koei Tecmo, old weapons are returning to Dynasty Warriors 9 as premium downloadable content. Dynasty Warriors 9 was torn to shreds by many a fan when it launched back in February of this year, and one of the most common criticisms was that some of the series' more interesting weapons...
And PS4's even worse
Digital Foundry's had its say on Dynasty Warriors 9, and unsurprisingly, the tech heads aren't impressed. The publication cuts to the chase quickly, stating that Dynasty Warriors 9 is probably the "worst performing game we've seen to date" on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Yikes. The bottom line is that the game can...
Bloody Dynasty Warriors 9. What a bitter disappointment that turned out to be. Now that I've had time to reflect on Koei Tecmo's latest and my own review of the game (which you can read through here), I've come to the conclusion that I've had my heart broken by a video game, and I'm still coming to terms with it. Now...
Let's hope it works
After many years of waiting, Dynasty Warriors 9 is finally here -- but it's proved to be a divisive release. Critics appear torn on the title's open world and the new systems that it brings, but if there's one thing that we can surely all agree on, it's that the game runs like crap. As mentioned in our review, the title...
Koei Tecmo's released an English version of the Dynasty Warriors 9 overview trailer, so it's a bit easier to work out the details this time. It's worth a watch if you're still not quite sure how the open world action game is structured. Dynasty Warriors 9 is out in around a month, but are you feeling the hype? Pick up...
The world's a battlefield
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...
Across the hills and far away
It's about time we got another lengthy trailer for Dynasty Warriors 9. Koei Tecmo has pushed out a six-minute video that details many of the game's systems, from combat to exploration and hunting to house decoration. It all looks reasonably promising, but we feel like we'll have to get our hands on the finished...
But we're not sure why you would
An interesting detail in the latest Dynasty Warriors 9 information dump: any of the game's playable characters can equip and use any weapon type. This means you can have Lu Bu running about with a relatively tiny sword if you're so inclined, or you can slap an oversized mace on one of the title's more petite warriors...
Armed and ready
Koei Tecmo's attached a release date to Dynasty Warriors 9 in both Europe and North America. The open world hack and slasher is set to launch on the 13th February, 2018 here in the West, just a week after it hits Japan. Good to know that we won't be getting it weeks or months later, as is often the case. Dynasty Warriors 9...
Koei Tecmo has slapped a Japanese release date on Dynasty Warriors 9. The open world hack and slasher -- which is a PlayStation 4 exclusive in the Land of the Rising Sun -- will take to the battlefield on the 8th February, 2018. We imagine that date won't mean much to most of you reading this, but its confirmation does tell us that...
In Dynasty Warriors 9, players will explore China as it existed when feudal warlords vied for dominance over the land — the waning days of the Han dynasty and emergence of the Three Kingdoms era. Setting out to complete various objectives, players will utilise an unprecedented world map to navigate and traverse a variety of different landscapes ranging from vast plains to snow-covered peaks presented with dynamic day/night and weather cycles. Exploring these impressive environments is made more engaging through the ability to adapt to surroundings to gain an upper hand in battle, with players able to use equipment to circumvent obstacles or blend in to avoid conflict.
