Today Koei Tecmo Europe released a brand new trailer of Dynasty Warriors 9, showcasing the game’s vast open world and the many features that we’ll find across its reproduction of ancient China.
On top of the trailer, we also get a look at previously announced features via screenshots, including horses, scrolls, the teahouse, the ability to furnish your hideout, and powerful enemies that you’ll meet in the open world. While some of the screenshots are old, this time around we see them in shiny 1080p, and you can find them in the gallery at the bottom of the post.
Most interestingly, the video also gives us a glimpse of the English voice acting for the game.
Additionally, we get to see the pre-order bonuses that according to Koei Tecmo are inspired by traditional Chinese garments. This includes the “Dudou Costume” for Guan Yinping, Diaochan, Sun Shangxiang, Lu Lingqi, Wang Yi, and Wang Yuanji, and a Beijing Opera-style costume for Zhao Yun.
I don’t know about you, but I was not aware that in ancient China they had cheerleaders. The things you learn… Mind you, if you know me, you also know that I am not complaining at all.
Personal ramblings aside, you can enjoy the assets below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy the latest batch of character trailers from Japan, another one from a few days ago (alongside the local version of this trailer), even more character trailers, and a recent character reveal topped by more gameplay trailers. If you’re interested in learning more details directly from the lion’s mouth, you can also read our recent interview with Producer Akihiro Suzuki.
Dynasty Warriors 9 will launch in Japan on February 8th, exclusively for PS4. The western release will happen just a few days later, on February 13th. In the west, we’ll also get two additional platforms: Xbox One, and PC.
