    During Saturday’s TOKYO GAME SHOW 2021 ONLINE livestream, KOEI TECMO and developer Omega Force revealed the release date and interesting new information for DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires, the latest game in their highly-revered DYNASTY WARRIORS franchise. The strategic warfare experience will be available in North America on the Nintendo SwitchTM, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles, Windows PC via Steam®, PlayStation®4, and digitally on PlayStation®5* on February 15, 2022.

    DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires, which combines the 1 vs. 1,000 action of DYNASTY WARRIORS with tactical aspects, sends players on a journey to conquer ancient China via the use of strategy and the sword. Because of the new feature “Storming the Castle,” battles have evolved substantially from prior entries in the series.

    Skirmishes expand into “Storming the Castle” encounters as areas around castles are now turned into battlefields, with players battling to take possession of the castle. Players will also be able to use “Siege Battles with Troops” to invade the enemy’s base, using siege weapons and issuing orders to troops during battle.

    After breaking through an enemy’s gate, players will enter a “Decisive Battle” in which they can claim victory after defeating the commander. Despite the fact that all of the enemy officers will re-join the battlefield for one last strong resistance, players will have the opportunity to beat and capture them.

    “Secret Plans” will also have a significant impact on the conflict. “Secret Plans” chosen during the combat preparation phase will now be triggered as missions during fights, with each “Secret Plan” having its own set of success and failure conditions. Once the success conditions are met, beneficial effects on allies will be activated, such as “take surrounding bases,” “destroy messengers,” “escort the engineers,” and others.

    Each battle features offense and defense centered on how to activate “Secret Plans,” resulting in a highly strategic battle experience. Enemies, on the other hand, can carry out “Secret Plans.” Players will gain an advantage in battle by stopping the enemy’s “Secret Plans.”

    Army Affinity will also play an important role in DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 Empires, with each officer’s unit being allocated a military unit type as a new officer attribute. Each of the three units will have its own set of strengths and weaknesses: Infantry < Archer < Cavalry < Infantry.

    When a unit battles against an advantaged opponent, it can deal greater damage while taking less damage. When a unit battles against opponents that are at a disadvantage, the situation is reversed. Furthermore, each military force has its own set of specific abilities: infantry may strike siege weapons more effectively, cavalry can cause greater damage to enemy headquarters, and archers can make simultaneous attacks.

    Aside from battle, the Empires series’ popular political intrigue and domestic system will be incorporated. The kingdom a player belongs to aims to unify China by following the kingdom goals stated once every half year.

    Every month, players will be able to issue commands to look for new officers to join the kingdom, purchase arrows and supplies, and carry out a variety of military, economic, and diplomatic tasks based on their position.
