Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on Koei Tecmo’s upcoming open world Musou game Dynasty Warriors 9.

The article reveals seven returning characters, even if Xun You takes front and center, since this will be his debut as a playable character. The rest of the troupe includes Xiahou Yuan, Lu Lingqi, Daqiao, Xiaoqiao, Zhang Fei and Zhuge Liang.

The screenshots also showcase several events in the game involving other characters.

You can enjoy the screenshots below, but keep in mind that they are from magazine scans, so their quality is far from perfect.

If you want to see more, you can also check out the first direct feed gameplay showcasing Guan Yu, Cheng Pu and Xiahou Dun, on top of the videos from last week (featuring much lower video quality, but more content), including the debut at ChinaJoy showing Guan Yuthirty minutes of gameplay showing Cheng Pu, and the grand finale with another 17 minutes showing Xiahou Dun. You can also take a glipse at the recent reveal of six more returning heroes: Ling Tong, Gan Ning, Xu Zhu, Dian Wei, Guan Ping and Dong Zhuo.

Dynasty Warriors 9 will release this year in Japan exclusively for PS4, while an English version will launch some time down the line for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
