During Tokyo Game Show 2020, Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires was announced by Koei Tecmo for the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game is currently scheduled to release early 2021.
Check out the teaser trailer below:
An overview of the game reads as follows:
Combining the 1 vs. 1,000 action of Dynasty Warriors with the addition of strategic elements, including unit command, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires sets players on a quest to conquer ancient China by both sword and strategy. Powerful Siege Battles enable commanders to deploy units to capture strategic points on the map like castles. Experiencing high-stakes fights at every turn, players can now take control of these central points on the battlefield through the use of fire attacks or other stratagem, siege weapons, and, at times, simply by force as commanders execute their strategies and attack enemy troops by issuing vital commands to units throughout the skirmish.
Empires will have 2 player online co-op and the Nintendo Switch version will feature local wireless co-op exclusively. Next-gen versions have been confirmed to get improvements in visual quality and frame rates.
Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires will release for the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC in early 2021.
