Today Koei Tecmo released two new videos of its upcoming open-world Musou game Shin Sangokumusou 8, which will be titled Dynasty Warriors 9 in the west due to the traditional titling discrepancy that has existed since the very first game.
The first clip is a trailer coming for Japan, showing off the pre-order costumes for the game, which are the previously-announced “Dudou” style for Guan Yinping, Diaochan, Sun Shangxiang, Lu Lingqi, Wang Yi, and Wang Yuanji, and a Beijing Opera-style costume for Zhao Yun.
According to the publisher, they’re “inspired by traditional Chinese garments,” but besides Zhao Yun’s outfit, looks like they strayed just a little bit. Not that I’m complaining, because (again, besides Zhao Yun’s outfit) they look really cute.
The second video is a commercial from the western branches of the publisher, giving another glimpse on the English voice acting.
You can check out both videos below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy the previous batch of character videos, and one released just before. We also have a large chunk of Xbox One gameplay, more footage from the PS4 version from last weekend,the reveal of a few NPCs alongside a trailer focusing on battle gameplay, the latest batch of character trailers, more trailers from the same series, a recent video showing many activities we can enjoy in the open world, a few screenshots focusing pretty much on the same topics, the first trailer related to the open world, another batch of character trailers, more of the same from a few days before, even more character trailers, and a recent character reveal topped by more gameplay trailers.
Dynasty Warriors 9 will launch in Japan on February 8th, exclusively for PS4. The western release will hit the shelves just a few days later, on February 13th. In the west, the game will also launch for Xbox One, and PC.
