If you thought that Koei Tecmo was done expanding the massive cast of playable characters of its upcoming open-world Musou game Shin Sangokumusou 8, which will be titled in the west Dynasty Warriors 9, you were wrong.
Today, they revealed five more, and more precisely we get to see Yue Jin, Lianshi, Guan Xing, Fa Zheng, and Zhong Hui. And people wonder why I can’t remember the vast majority of the names of the series’ characters…
Besides the reveal, that shows off character artwork for all both in their battle armor and every day outfits, we also get plenty of gameplay trailers showcasing more characters that were previously revealed and their lethal moves as they mow through the rabble as usual.
Included in the videos are Jia Xu, Jhang Jao, Sima Shi, Zhou Cang, Bao Sanniang, Jiang Wei, Xiaoqiao, Liang Tong, and Xun Yu.
You can check out all the images below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy the latest group of gameplay trailers, a recent batch of screenshots focusing on furnishing hideouts, more character videos, the latest extensive trailer, a few character trailers and new characters introduced a couple of weeks ago, another batch of character trailers from the day before, another release of artwork showcasing a few more characters, even more officers in the previous batch, another gallery of screenshots showing another group of characters and the first look at the hideouts, more recent screenshots, another batch, and more gameplay.
