imageDuring Sony’s Tokyo Game Show briefing, Tecmo Koei announced Shin Sangoku Musou 6 or Dynasty Warriors 7 going by the numbering system in the West. The title, unlike other Dynasty Warriors games, will be a PlayStation 3 exclusive.


Ever wonder why we have one more “Dynasty Warriors” game than Japan? The original Dynasty Warriors is a PsOne fighting game.

  • When your series reaches numbers greater than 5 then the rule should be to use a subtitle or branch it off instead of keeping the numbering going. 6/7 is a rediculous number to be honest and it isnt even based off a year like the EA Sports games are.

    That being said, I hope its as interesting as Sengoku Basara, that game reminds me so much of Dynasty Warriors, actually its even better than it.

      Square Enix doesn’t seem to care about that. I would love how they will handle Final Fantasy 30…

        I wonder if FF30 is going to be rated AO.

    • *cough* Ys7 *cough*

      And it still manages to entertain

  • ManaKnight

    I love Dynasty Warriors. Definitely a buy for me.

    Unless it’s very different I think I’ve had my feel of this kinda of game now I’ve played DW2-6 plus aload of spin offs and I don’t honestly think I can take anymore.

  • I love ’em. Bring it on!

  • thebanditking

    Not sure what to make of this. If I had not played Sengoku Basara I would be excited (I love these, despite the gaping flaws) but unless this new one plays radically different I will likely skip it because I am picking up Basara on PS3. Still Japan will eat it up.

    …People still buy these?

      Hey, it’s Koei’s most profitable franchise.

    I remember playing the first one that was available on/near PS2 launch and was pretty impressed at the time. Little can be said about the demo I played of the most recent one. Boy have times changed.

    I hope it’s an improvement over DW6.
    In the meantime I’ll be enjoying Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes!

    • I agree with you there on the hoping it’s an improvement over DW6. Even tho I’ve been following the series since 4, 6 is my most disliked of them. Changing the weapons really sucked, especially since I LOVE playing as Zhen Ji with her flute. lol Limiting the number of characters wasn’t fun either, missed a few of my favorites that way too..

      Sengoku Basara would be more of the Samurai Warriors tho… so you can’t really compare it to Dynasty Warriors character-wise. But battle system-wise, I don’t know. Haven’t played the new Sengoku Basara, just the first one on the PS2.

  • Does anyone care? all these games are the Same
