Grab your Kwan Do and saddle up
This week sees the 20th anniversary of Koei Tecmo’s epic war series Dynasty Warriors, celebrating two decades of countryside-clearing carnage. And if fans were concerned that the occasion was going to pass by without any new announcements, then they can allay those fears for the time being.
Speaking in an interview with Japanese gaming journal Weekly Famitsu, Dynasty Warriors series producer Akihiro Suzuki has hinted that there is exciting news on the horizon regarding the series. “I hope to be able to announce a 20th anniversary title in the near future,” Suzuki said, before teasingly adding “By the way, there is not only one anniversary title.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Suzuki noted that Dynasty Warriors 9 would not be receiving an Xtreme Legends spin-off, saying that the base game’s system is not suited to the Xtreme Legends style. Suzuki also expressed disappointment at some of the feedback received from Dynasty Warriors 9, theorising that the studio perhaps took on too big a challenge in the sequel’s design.
Dynasty Warriors 9 is available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
