As it looks like Dynasty Warriors 9 is getting closer to finishing development, more and more information and details are being officially revealed. One of these is yet another new character, Xun You of Wei. But who is this fellow? And why is his name shockingly close to the last games added character; Xun Yu? Well lets elaborate on who and what Xun You’s involvement in Dynasty Warriors 9 is!
Xun You, one of many famous advisors for Cao Cao, was known most through the war against the Yuan family and especially the battle of Guandu where he served as Chief Advisor. He is the cousin to Xun Yu (Thus name relation), and became an advisor for Cao Cao by his recommendation. Along with leading many successful tactics against the Yuan family, he also advised alongside Cao Cao to attack and decimate the remainder of Lu Bu’s forces forcing his hand to hold up at Xia Pi Castle. Xun You also was strongly against Cao Cao’s aspiration to become Duke of Wei, and due to this succumbed to illness and died in 214AD.
In Dynasty Warriors 9, Xun You will be a part of Wei’s army post Dong Zhuo uprising. He wields a Steel Whipsword. Being with Cao Cao, he will prove just how easy it is to run rings around the larger Yuan family armies, and secure victory with wits rather than manpower!
