Dynasty Warriors 9 has a set of unique NPCs that you can hang out with in your Hideaway House and more. Koei Tecmo shared a first look at four with Kiahou Ji, Dong Bai, Hua Xiong, and Yuan Shu.
Xiahou Ji (CV: Yuuko Mikutsu)
Wife to Zhang Fei, niece to Xiahou Yuan, and cousin to Xiahou Ba, her shy nature was the result of having spent the majority of her life at home, being brought up with care.
One fateful day while playing in the woods, she met Zhang Fei, who then took her as his wife.
Dong Bai (CV: Eri Ozeki)
Granddaughter of Dong Zhuo, she was doted on by her grandfather and was often given land and fortune even at a young age.
Although willful and cruel, she took on a charming persona whenever Dong Zhuo was about.
Hua Xiong (CV: Volcano Ota)
A ferocious retainer of Dong Zhuo, he used his colossal and dominant stature to strike at Sun Jian and Yuan Shao of the Anti-Dong Zhuo coalition at Shisui Gate.
Yuan Shu (CV: Keiji Hirai)
A general of the Later Han and cousin to Yuan Shao, he was born into a prestigious family where he fell in love with power and wealth.
With an unquenched thirst for power, he eventually gained the Imperial Seal and named himself Emperor. Yet, this same thirst led him to misgovern his people ultimately losing their support.
And lastly, we got a look at a new gameplay trailer showing “the reborn action” of Dynasty Warriors 9:
Siliconera recently got to talk to the game’s producer Akihiro Suzuki, who had some interesting stuff to talk about making an open-world Dynasty Warriors and more. You can read about that here.
