Koei Tecmo opened an official website for their recently announced strategy RPG title, Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden, and provided us with some screenshots and details on its story, battle, and two characters.
The young warrior from Changshan named Zhao Yun, and childhood friend Lei Bin, meet a girl named Li Xia, who awakens from a shrine, as the three embark in a grand fantasy adventure in Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden.
The Tyrant Dong Zhuo, his collapse and the many warlords defending their territories, and the Battle of Red Cliffs, in the midst of all these events swirling around the era of the Three Kingdoms, the battle of a legend that transcends time is about to take place.
With allied units and enemy units taking turns of action on the battlefield, the game uses a strategy RPG’s turn-based system of overthrowing the other party while working out tactics. It also includes refreshing attack animations along with various elements that determines the victory or defeat of your units.
Players will get to use numerous Musou commanders on top of the grids to enjoy a new style of Warriors game that requires some deep strategies to take on.
