Dynasty Warriors 9 offers more to explore with an open-world map, but it also adds more to the action with some new elements added to the familiar hack ‘n’ slash battles.

 

As previously detailed, the “State Combo System” is a new system that lets you pull off a variety of actions. The “Flow Attack” varies depending on the enemy state, “React Attack” puts you in an advantageous situation, and the “Trigger attack” is used to start off a combo.

 

Here’s a look at what you can do with the State Combo System actions:

 

Flow Attack (Circle)

action1_6 

action1_4 

action1_5

An attack that changes based on the enemy’s state. You’ll see a different Flow Attack based on whether the enemy is in a normal state, in mid-air, downed, and so on. This allows you to pull off swift multi-hit attacks to deal massive damage.

 

React Attack (Triangle)

action1_9

The React Attack changes depending on the player and enemy state and timing. These attacks put the player in an advantageous situation.

 

Here’s a list of React Attacks:

  • Counter Attack: Reacts when an enemy is about to attack.
  • Separating Attack: Knocks back close enemies.
  • Dash Attack: Instantly closes the gap with a faraway enemy.
  • Knockdown Attack: Knocks mid-air enemies down to the ground.
  • Guard Break Attack: Used to break the guard of guarding enemies.
  • Sneak Attack: Hits an unsuspecting enemy with massive damage.
  • Finish Attack: Can one-shot kill an enemy after they’ve taken enough damage.

 

Trigger Attack

action1_3

Trigger Attack is used to change the enemy state and start a combo with a follow-up Flow Attack.

  • R1 + Square: Temporarily staggers the enemy.
  • R1 + Triangle: Hits the enemy into the air.
  • R1 + X: Puts the enemy in a downed state.

 

Special Attack (R1 + Circle)

Each warlord has their own unique powerful special attack.
