  • *can’t wait~ but fears how much space it’ll take for the US DL-only version* February 2013 is the projected release for America. Yay~ *starts planning which guy from DW7 her character’s gonna marry*

    • Rollersnake

      Ha, you can have relationships in DW now?  I haven’t played since Dynasty Warriors 5, so I have no idea how much has changed since then.

      • I haven’t touched the Empire games since 4… But in DW6 Empires, they added marriage/loyalty oaths between characters. It’s being carried over to 7’s Empires.

    This looks really awesome! can’t wait when it’s next year out!

    O’ brilliant blade of coldest steel…

  • Ooh Bee

    Time for some YuanjiXZhongHui!

    …Why does it have a big 6 instead of 7 in the video? At any rate, I hope this turns out better then the previous Empires game. That was ultra terrible.

    • Dynasty Warriors games have a +1 at the end of the title for the West. This might be confusing, but Dynasty Warriors 2 is actually Shin Sangoku Musou 1. The first “Dynasty Warriors” game was a fighting game called Sangoku Musou.

      • Christopher Nunes

        Thanks for clearing that up… I was confused about the 6 for a moment seeing as this is 7.

        Can’t wait until this game comes out in the US! The Edit Mode looks amazing and better than ever! Ah, I wish Samurai Warriors got the same treatment as the Dynasty Warrior games with coming over to the US and the amazing Edit Mode.

    Why do Koei hate X360 so much?

  • After playing DW6 Empires, this looks like it has a decent strategy element in it… DW6E felt really limited and restrictive….

  • Sardorim

    Guess I better remake Wen Yang again… Hopefully he gets in DW8 to flesh out Jin.

  • Ace.Of Hearts♥

    Xu Shu looks like a clone of Ma Dai.. not really but very similar. oh wells! I want this!!!!Looks super pretty !<3 more Dynasty Warriors games is great!!(not for my wallet though T_T)

  • wahyudil

    November? is there any Wii U version then?

    • Just the PS3, that I know of. Maybe the next installment (7 in Japan/8 outside Japan) might be PS3 & Wii-U (and maybe~ 360)? It’s sad that they dropped the support of the 360 version outside of Japan (not like I play them on the 360). A lot of the Warriors fans are upset about that.
