Introducing New Characters in Dynasty Warriors 8

Even though it’s titled as the seventh game in Japan, the incredibly expansive franchise of Dynasty Warriors is coming back for more with Shin Sangoku Musou 7 (or Dynasty Warriors 8 in the West). While a release date hasn’t been confirmed for North America, Koei has been doing a good job bringing all three franchises from Omega Force (Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and Warriors Orochi) to English speaking gamers in a speedy manner.

Today, Tecmo Koei has released a trailer showing off some of the new characters and techniques from this pre-modern Chinese-influenced series, along with a number of screenshots to go with it. While the gameplay will more than likely remain the same with a couple of tweaks here and there, at least the universe continues to expand with more interesting characters and plotlines.
