Koei Tecmo shared new Dynasty Warriors 9 info on its official website with details on the game’s “exploring and collecting” features. We also got the latest batch of character action videos.
First, here’s a look at new action videos:
Here are the latest screenshots and details for the “Exploring and Collecting” parts of the game:
Among the trees lining the pathways are watchtowers. If you find one, be sure to climb up it to gather information about the surrounding area.
By looking out at the surrounding area from the watchtower, information covering a wide area will become available, providing valuable information for missions and exploring.
In the forests, mountain ranges and waterfronts far from pathways are clusters of land where materials can be found. Rare items can be obtained, so discovering these clusters will assist in effectively advancing the crafting of weapons and items.
By setting box traps and leaving them for a certain amount of time, items such as tools can be obtained. There are three sizes of traps (large, medium and small) and bigger traps increase the chances of obtaining more valuable items.
At fishing holes located in cities, materials and coins can be obtained.
Wild animals such as wolves and bears can be hunted. Crafting arrows most effective against wild animals will aid in mastering the art of the hunt.
Hunting Points are earned from hunting, and rewards such as coins and gems can be obtained from the Dilettante according to the Hunting Points earned.
In order to craft weapons and items, it is necessary to collect scrolls which list the required materials. Scrolls are divided into several parts and once completed, crafting becomes possible. Scrolls are rewarded for completing missions, and may be dropped by defeated enemies.
New items and weapons can be crafted once the materials listed on the scrolls are acquired.
Higher ranked weapons can also be crafted by collecting the materials listed on scrolls.
Dynasty Warriors 9 releases in Japan on February 8, 2018 for PlayStation 4. It’ll release in North America and Europe on February 13 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out our previous report for a look at its latest English trailer that shows more of its battle system and gameplay.
