Koei Tecmo is continuing its string of reveals of its upcoming open-world Musou game Shin Sangokumusou 8, that will be titled Dynasty Warriors 9 in the west.
This time around, we learn about the Teahouse, where we can purchase food offering temporary benefits like increased experience gain, improved attack, buffed speed or jump ability. We can also confirm the ingredients required for cooking any given recipe.
Interestingly, in the screenshots below you can see the jumping buff in action. without it, the character’s jump ability is limited, but with the buff, she can almost reach the second floor.
The teahouse also has another useful feature. You can use it to hang out, accelerating the passage of time. This will cause the recovery of a character’s physical strength.
You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy the latest character reveal and gameplay trailers from earlier today, an earlier 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, and another another gallery of screenshots showing another group of characters and the first look at the hideouts.
