KOEI TECMO America Announces Platforms for Dynasty Warriors 9, Reveals Details of New Battle System

Epic Adventure Set Across The Natural Wonders and Exotic Terrain of China Headed to Consoles and PC

Burlingame, Calif. – August 3, 2017 – KOEI TECMO America is proud to announce today that Omega Force’s latest entry in the long-running action franchise, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9, will be released on the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam®. Omega Force unveiled a plethora of new assets that offer a deeper look in to the vast Chinese landscapes and wildlife, new character designs, and brand-new characters!

Whether players choose to follow the main storyline quests or spend time exploring the vast natural wonders of China – from the lush cedar woods and bamboo forests of Chengdu to the legendary Great Wall - the ongoing war will continue to rage along their journey. Skirmishes, clashes, special side missions, and larger scale conflicts can be engaged at the player’s will as they venture through far –reaching lands, allowing for a sense of freedom of choice for the player previously unfelt in previous DYNASTY WARRIORS titles. These battles range from scouting missions to discover powerful enemy officers, to guerilla actions to subdue messengers and scouts, to outright sabotage on enemy supply troops; success in these combat engagements offer great rewards and have an effect on future battles’ difficulty.

To further expand the choices available to the player, KOEI TECMO is also introducing two new playable characters to the game, each formidable in their own right! Man Chong, from the kingdom of Wei, is a brilliant general, skilled debater, and an excellent tactician. Meanwhile, Zhou Cang from the kingdom of Shu is best known for his incredible stamina and speed. Both characters join an already strong roster of fan favorites and will provide an even more diverse selection for players keen on exploring different storylines in different kingdoms.

Speaking of those old fan-favorites, KOEI TECMO is also releasing new costume designs for popular characters Sun Shangxiang, Lu Xun, and the powerful demon-god, Lu Bu!
