Shin Sangoku Musou 20th Anniversary Video, Timeline Tease 2020 Project
Koei Tecmo and Omega Forced teased a "New Project" in the Shin Sangoku Musou, Dynasty Warriors series, coming later in 2020.
Koei Tecmo and Omega Force teased a new project for the Dynasty Warriors series, coming later in 2020. On August 3, both companies published a special trailer to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Shin Sangaoku Musou / Dynasty Warriors series. The celebrations have been going for a while now, but August 3 specifically is the anniversary day itself. Shin Sangoku Musou first launched on PS2 on August 3, 2000.
The trailer, which can be found further below, retraces every main game in the series, and is full of memories for those who’ve been sticking with it for a while. I still remember how cool it felt when I discovered you could ride elephants.
On Koei Tecmo’s official site, a special artwork, seen above, was shared for the occasion. More importantly, a timeline of the series was published, with “New Project” listed for 2020.
Back in July, Koei Tecmo also held a large poll for the the 20th anniversary of the franchise. The company most notably asked the Dynasty Warriors fans what do they think of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and which are they hypothetically planning to buy. It’s possible this Dynasty Warriors 2020 project will be coming to these platforms.
Lastly, in a message on Koei Tecmo’s official site, Producer Akihiro Suzuki teased some announcement(s) will be coming soon. This week’s Famitsu Magazine, launching on August 6 in Japan, includes a retrospective on the series and an interview with Akihiro Suzuki, where he might tease things further.

Shin Sangoku Musou is definitely one of the most iconic game franchises and is pretty peculiar with how it’s popular among many different fans and fandoms worldwide. From BL enthusiasts to history freaks, Shin Sangoku Musou can fill in a lot of needs.
Shin Sangoku Musou 8 (Dynasty Warriors 9) the latest game in the series, was released in February 2018 on current-gen. The game was a huge change, leaving the closed maps behind for an open-world approach. Meanwhile, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate keeps the traditional formula if you’d like to have a blast with the usual mechanics and a few new touches.
