Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce – Romance Of Monster Hunter

By Spencer . March 11, 2009 . 6:09am

This may sound strange, but Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce is the most evolved version of Dynasty Warriors since the series started. You still push through waves, smaller waves this is a PSP game, of mindless troops. However, Koei tried to make Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce more like a stylish action game. Characters move faster, have evasion tricks […]

By Spencer . March 10, 2009 . 5:48am

Is Koei going to localize Musou Orochi Z, a compilation of the Warriors Orochi games for the PlayStation 3? Of course. What “Something” Warriors game have we missed?   While Musou Orochi Z officially remains unannounced Gamefly has Warriors Orochi: The Collective in their PS3 database. The two titles appear to be pretty connected. If […]

By Spencer . January 9, 2009 . 6:37am

Koei is bringing their Dynasty Warriors / Samurai Warriors mashup to the PS3 on March 12 when Musou Orochi Z comes out. Past Warriors Orochi games were for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and PSP.   Since the laconic announcement only mentions the PlayStation 3 Warriors Orochi Z is probably a port of one or […]

Of Course Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 Has DLC

By Spencer . January 8, 2009 . 6:55am

Color me shocked. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 may not be in stores for us yet, but Japan is getting their first piece of downloadable content sometime this month. Details are vague, but it’s an extra scenario. A free extra scenario. The other scenarios which will follow may or may not be free.   This seems […]

Koei And Tecmo Merging On April 1, 2009

By Spencer . November 18, 2008 . 12:43am

This isn’t an early April Fool’s Joke. Koei and Tecmo’s discussions have been well received by both companies. In the next fiscal year the two companies will be under the same financial roof. The two publishers will link up to form a holding company structure which will own both companies. Koei stock will be transferred […]

By Spencer . September 2, 2008 . 11:02am

Shortly after Gundam Musou 2 was revealed Namco Bandai announces it will be published in North America under the name Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2. We have to wait until 2009 to get it, though. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is scheduled to come out on December 4 in Japan. Surprisingly, Namco Bandai and Koei will release […]

Gundam Musou 2 goes multiplatform on day one

By Spencer . August 29, 2008 . 8:23am

When Namco Bandai announced Gundam Musou, a strange mix of the Gundam universe with the Dynasty Warriors engine, it was only a PlayStation 3 game. Then it became an Xbox 360 game when it was announced as Dynasty Warriors: Gundam in North America and most recently it got a downgraded PlayStation 2 port.   Namco […]

Dynasty Warriors fans who didn’t jump into the next generation of consoles will have a chance to play a version of Dynasty Warriors 6 in English. Koei will release Shin Sangkou 5 Musou Special in North America under the simple name Dynasty Warriors 6 in November. They are dropping the “special” moniker, but added features […]

Dynasty Warriors 6 revised and “expanded” for the PS2

By Spencer . June 30, 2008 . 12:15am

Koei isn’t forsaking the PlayStation 2 even though Dynasty Warriors series moved onto other consoles. This September Shin Sangoku Musou 5 will emerge as a “new” PlayStation 2 game, nearly a year since it was released in Japan for the PS3 and Xbox 360. By “new” I mean Shin Sangoku Musou 5 Special is Dynasty […]

Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends digitally delayed

By Spencer . March 20, 2008 . 2:00am

Sengoku Musou 2: Moushouden (Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends) is extremely late to the Xbox 360 party. Koei released the Samurai Warriors 2 expansion disc on the PlayStation 2 last August in Japan. It was supposed to come to the Xbox Live Marketplace earlier this week, but “operational delays with Xbox Live” prevented it from […]

Quick Hands on Warriors Orochi on the PSP

By Spencer . February 21, 2008 . 11:25pm

At this point you either love Dynasty Warriors (aka Shin Sangoku Musou) or you’re sick of it. It seems like a few people at GDC are in the former category since the single playable build of Warriors Orochi was usually occupied. Luckily, I got a chance to squeeze some time to play it and it’s […]

Koei is giving fans of the crossover Orochi Musou series a sequel. Orochi Musou: Maou Sarin (loosely Second Coming of the Devil) is scheduled to come out on April 3rd in Japan. Besides the requisite addition of characters Koei is adding a dramatic mode, survival mode and versus mode. The latter is the most interesting […]

Koei experimenting with Xbox 360 downloadable expansion packs

By Spencer . January 18, 2008 . 2:34pm

Nearly every Samurai Warriors (Sengoku Musou) or Dynasty Warriors (Shin Sangoku Musou) game gets a follow up. Koei isn’t shy about capitalizing on a base game, but with Samurai Warriors 2 they are trying a new strategy. Sengoku Musou 2 Moushouden (aka Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends) arrived on the PlayStation 2 last summer, but […]

War continues to rage in ancient China, Dynasty Warriors 6 dated

Koei is wasting no time when it comes to releasing Dynasty Warriors 6 in North America. The latest in their tactical action game series is scheduled to come out on February 19, 2008, about three months after the Japanese release. Not bad turnaround time at all. Like Japan, Dynasty Warriors 6 will also get a […]
