Slash samurai with the Wii remote in January

By Spencer . November 15, 2007 . 10:24am

Koei is bringing Samurai Warriors: Katana to the market on January 15, 2008, which means it’s going to come out before Dragon Quest Swords in North America. This is the reverse of what happened in Japan since Square-Enix’s game came out first and Koei followed up with Samurai Warriors: Katana. Both games have essentially the […]

Shin Sangoku Musou Sales: Xbox 360 vs PS3

By Spencer . November 15, 2007 . 4:25am

Shin Sangoku Musou 5 (aka Dynasty Warriors 6) made its debut on Sunday, an odd choice since most games in Japan are released on Thursday. The sales numbers are out and if you add up the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions, Koei’s most recognizable series sold 210,000 copies. That puts Shin Sangoku Musou 5 […]

Dynasty Warriors 6 and the special edition PS3 package

By Spencer . October 9, 2007 . 11:04pm

There had to be a reason why Sony chose November 11 as the date to release the 40GB Playstation 3 and the Dual Shock 3. It turns out that it is the same date Koei is releasing Shin Sangoku Musou 5 (read: Dynasty Warriors 6) in Japan. If you don’t have a Playstation 3 Koei […]

By Spencer . September 7, 2007 . 11:34am

Koei is making series history with Shin Sangoku Musou 5. The game will be launched simultaneously on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan. Previous numeric installments in the Dynasty Warriors series were released on Sony consoles first in Japan. They were brought to the Xbox at a later date.   Both versions of […]

By Spencer . August 14, 2007 . 4:33pm

Because I’m sure everyone that reads Siliconera cares about the latest pachinko news get ready to import Yamasa Digi World SP Pachislot Sengoku Musou. Seriously, this is big news for Japan. Pachinko/pachislot games easily sell hundreds of thousands of copies and Yamasa Digi World SP Pachislot Sengoku Musou is the first “next-gen” pachinko game. The […]

Watch: Dynasty Warriors 6 Promo

By Rolando . August 3, 2007 . 1:41pm

  Not too long ago, some screens of Dynasty Warrior 6 were revealed to show the game's super awesome high-resolution 3D glory…if you want to call it that. Of course the main concern with screens is they do no justice to how the game will handle itself, that is until a video that shows gameplay […]

Dynasty Warriors 6 coming to the Xbox 360 too

By Spencer . August 3, 2007 . 6:39am

At the Playstation premiere event Koei announced Shin Sangoku Musou 5 for the Playstation 3, but it isn’t an exclusive. It isn’t even a timed exclusive. Koei plans to release Shin Sangoku Musou 5 (aka Dynasty Warriors 6) on the Xbox 360 simultaneously with the Playstation 3 version. There are no details about any extra […]

Some Fresh New Dynasty Warrior 6 Screens

By Rolando . August 1, 2007 . 12:14pm

  Dynasty Warriors is just one of those series that really hasn't changed anything at all about its gameplay mechanics muchless its graphical presentation. Sure the flair and exuberance of this next-gen Dynasty Warriors (rightfully titled Dynasty Warriors 6 I assume) looks like a small step in the graphics department for the series, but I […]

Beam Rifles on the 360, the Dynasty Warriors: Gundam is up

By Spencer . July 26, 2007 . 6:57am

Namco Bandai announced they had an Xbox 360 demo for Dynasty Warriors: Gundam last week, but it was a no show on Xbox Live. After a short wait, it arrived online. While Dynasty Warriors: Gundam was released in Japan it only came out for the Playstation 3. The Xbox 360 version is new for North […]

Prettier Dynasty, prettier warriors

By Spencer . July 23, 2007 . 5:37am

After playing with next-generation hardware to make Dynasty Warriors: Gundam, Omega Force finally has a ground up next generation Shin Sangoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors) game in the pipeline. New character models, more immersive environments, same button mashing combo action. Sure the screenshots are pleasing to the eye, but I hope Shin Sangoku Musou 5* has […]

Wii remote slash, Sengoku Musou Wave dated

By Spencer . June 29, 2007 . 1:13pm

Koei announced Sengoku Musou Wave when Nintendo spilled the details about the Wii remote. At the time Sengoku Musou Wave looked interesting because it blended the Dynasty Warriors concept with motion controlled sword fighting. I imagined it might have been something like Blade of Honor, but with more things to slash at on screen.   […]

Musou Orochi leaving Japan, heading west

There are 77 playable characters from the two franchises crammed into to Warriors Orochi that you rotate through with the new three player tag team system. You actively fight with one warrior while the other two […]

Screen Gallery – Dynasty Warriors: Gundam

By Spencer . June 19, 2007 . 12:21pm

Namco Bandai released a batch of screenshots from the Xbox 360 version of Dynasty Warriors: Gundam. In Japan Gundam Musou was only released for the Playstation 3 so these screenshots are a sort-of-first since they are from the unseen Xbox 360 release.   I played a little bit of the Playstation 3 release a few […]

Slashing through Dynasty Warriors DS

By Spencer . April 18, 2007 . 9:29pm

You have to give Koei some credit for trying new things with the handheld Shin Sangoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors) titles. Granted these ideas didn’t really work out in Koei’s favor in Dynasty Warriors Advance, but they’re attempting to add something in besides more enemies on screen. Dynasty Warriors Fighter’s Battle DS starts changing things by […]

Watch: Shin Sangoku Musou DS Fighter’s Battle Commercial

By Spencer . April 17, 2007 . 8:52pm

Earlier this month Koei released Shin Sangoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors) for the Nintendo DS. Like Dynasty Warriors Advance the characters have been transformed from CG models into happy looking manga drawings like Dynasty Warriors Advance. The look is more “kid friendly”, but Shin Sangoku Musou DS looks like it has the same button mashing action […]

Watch: How Musou Orochi begins

By Spencer . March 23, 2007 . 6:33pm

Koei has prided itself in using history to inspire the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series, but Musou Orochi dips into the fantasy arena. A huge purple vortex links the two time periods and has the warriors from the warring states era and from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms team up to fight Nobunaga. […]
