Today Koei Tecmo released the first trailer of its upcoming new chapter of the Dynasty Warriors series, Dynasty Warriors 9.
The trailer looks quite awesome, especially considering the difference in looks with the previous chapters of the series. We get to see the beautiful open world promised by the developers, and a glimpse on battle.
If the “8” in the Japanese logo of the game confuses you, it’s because the original title is Shin Sangokumusou 8. The first game of the Dynasty Warriors series in the west actually did not belong to the Shin Sangokumusou franchise, creating the discrepancy in numbering.
Dynasty Warriors 9 will be released in Japan for PS4 (for which it has been built from the ground up) in 2017. Release dates and platforms for the already confirmed western release have not been announced yet. Even in this latest trailer, the Japanese version (which you can see at the bottom of the post) includes PS4 as a platform, while the western version shows no platforms.
