Warriors From Tecmo Koei Raid PSP And PS3 In August

By Spencer . May 31, 2011 . 8:22pm

samurai_warriors_empires Tecmo Koei has two reworked Warriors games on the way. Dynasty Warriors 7 Special brings the elephant riding (seriously, you can ride an elephant) melee game to PSP. Changes in this installment include weapon switching, double musou bars, and a fourth faction – the Jin. Games with "special" at the end denote a downport, a trend that started with Dynasty Warriors 6 Special for the PlayStation 2. In North America, the game was released simply as Dynasty Warriors 6.


Famitsu also confirmed Samurai Warriors 3 Empires is indeed in development. The PlayStation 3 game has forty characters from the Japan-only Samurai Warriors 3Z and 600 additional commanders. Players will be able to create their own character using an in-game editor and download additional scenarios from PSN.


Dynasty Warriors 7 Special and Samurai Warriors 3 Empires are slated fro August 25 in Japan.

  • My PS3 died, I was hoping for a 360 version :/

  • I really hope SW3E comes to NA and T|K better get it here or going to cry and have to import it. Miss the series since SW2 on Ps2/360

  • GVmanX

    I’d love it if they made the elephant riding in Dynasty Warriors 7 Special DLC for the PS3/360 version.

      Why would you need a DLC for elephants? There already is one in Dynasty Warriors 7.

      Just go to the merchant and keep buying steeds until you get the Elephant. No DLC required for Elephant Riding…

        I’ll take “giant fat annoying married women from New Jersey riding” for 100 DLC points

  • PrinceHeir

    pretty please Samurai Warriors 3 Empires!!!

  • I was confused as to why Zhou Tai was the article image, when the first picture I saw upon entrance was SW3.
    Then I remembered (and read the article): Zhou Tai’s badass enough to represent whatever Tecmo Koei series he damn well pleases.

  • Suicunesol

    …really? They’re releasing a down-sized PSP version of a PS3 game?

    Well, I hope it comes to the US. I don’t have a PS3, but I’d love to play Dynasty Warriors 7.

  • Testsubject909

    Could we get Samurai Warriors 3 for PS3? I’d like that…

    • Insp. Chin, former owner of the Koei Warriors website & current employee of Koei Tecmo in the UK, already said we’re not getting SW3Z (SW3 & SW3XL as one game minus the Nintendo remade game mode that was on the Wii) in the US & UK. But since they announced Empires and it’s 60% complete, I guess people are gonna start asking him if we’re getting that too. XD

  • lol you forgot to mention actual story mode in the SW3E game plus create your own castle town. XD I actually distaste the Empires games but I might actually get this one if it comes out in English.

  • You could ride elephants in 5…
