The Tokyo Games Show will soon be coming to a close, but it brought tons of new and exciting games to light and gave exposure to the developers who craft them. Of all the developers/publishers that presented at TGS 2020, Koei Tecmo Games arguably had the most successful showing.
After wowing the gaming world with Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity the night before, the developer/publisher giant returned to the stage to reveal the continuation of the legendary game series that put the musou genre on the map, Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires.
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.
Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires releases in Early 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC Steam.
