For the past week or so, Koei has been teasing new info for Dynasty Warriors 9 following the game’s reveal last December. New scans from the latest issue of Famitsu give us our first proper look at the sequel, known in Japan as Shin Sanguko Musou 8.
The magazine reaffirms Dynasty Warriors 9 as an open world title with PlayStation 4 being the only listed platform.
Famitsu also states that the action gameplay has completely changed compared to previous instalments though players will still go up against hordes of enemy soldiers.
Part of the open world gameplay includes castle invasion, with players able to employ grappling hooks to scale walls.
Long-time fans will be glad to hear that Wu general, Cheng Pu, will finally be added as a playable character.
Hopefully more news is on the way direct from Koei Tecmo. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for gameplay footage and a release date reveal very soon.
