Dynasty Warriors 9 Release Timeframe Revealed With New Trailer

Koei Tecmo Europe confirmed during the Tokyo Game Show 2017 conference that Dynasty Warriors 9 will be releasing in early 2018.

The game has been previewed several times by Koei Tecmo in the past, but until the recent Tokyo Game Show, the release date for the next installment in the Dynasty Warriors series was totally up in the air. While an exact release date certainly would've been better to receive, a release window still isn't unwelcome news.

While more popular outside of the West, Dynasty Warriors still has an impressive number of dedicated followers who have been waiting diligently to hear more about the game. Koei Tecmo hasn't let them down recently either, the company revealing more and more about Dynasty Warriors 9 as the game approaches the projected release date.

Several new gameplay developments have been revealed recently that include various forms of attacks while engaged in the constant combat and the ability to maneuver around the battlefield by scaling buildings and other obstacles. Referred to in recent combat explanations as the State Combo system, players will be able to use this new combat feature to weave Flow Attacks, Reactive Attacks, and Trigger Attacks together to crush the many foes that the powerful Dynasty Warriors characters will face off against.

While the specifics related to the combat were teased a bit in the new gameplay trailer that's shown above, one aspect of Dynasty Warriors 9 that's was a bit harder to touch on in the short trailer was the open-world aspect. Taking an open-world direction with Dynasty Warriors is a first for the series, an ambitious goal that would allow players to freely traverse China.
