Hertfordshire, 22nd June 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe today revealed exciting new combat mechanics and exploration features slated to debut with the upcoming instalment in developer Omega Force’s long-running action franchise, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9. An impressive new trailer released alongside today’s announcement provides a closer look at the beautifully rendered environments and dynamic combat systems that players can look forward to.
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 introduces exhilarating new combat mechanics to the series’ signature “one versus thousands” style gameplay with the State Combo System. This new system allows players to perform 3 different attack styles – Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks – each dealing progressively more damage. Trigger Attacks allow players to create the start of an explosive combo, leading to Flow Attacks, which adapt to the enemy’s current state. Successful combos allow for a Finish Attack to be performed, delivering a final blow that eradicates any foes caught in its path. These new enhancements aim to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise.
Augmenting the series’ first true open world is another immersive innovation introduced in DYNASTY WARRIORS 9: the Interactive Action system. Players will be able to fully utilise their surroundings for the first time in the Warriors franchise with the ability to climb buildings and mountains, wield grappling hooks to traverse walls, and make use of objects like oil barrels in battle. These new actions offer a breadth of new possibilities for players to take advantage of while travelling around third-century China, or when caught in the heat of battle!
Unifying the classic, time-tested action iconic to the Warriors series with a variety of new features, characters, and content in an expansive open world environment, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 aims to deliver the most immersive and ambitious DYNASTY WARRIORS experience to date. Platforms, release timing, and more information on the game’s new features, characters, and narrative will be unveiled in the coming months.

As most of you should know, this week is E3 week, and Nintendo has definitely not been shy with showing what cards they have concealed. During their annual Treehouse Live segments, they showed off a new Trailer and did a Live presentation for Fire Emblem Warriors on the Nintendo Switch. They have yet to show any footage for the New 3DS version of the game, but there are still some days left for them to do so!
The game itself is looking great, showing the brisk art style known from the Fire Emblem series, with hectic hack ‘n’ slash at it’s core. With new key features shown such as being able to give commands to fellow officers, switching between officers mid-battle, the weapon triangle system (sword-axe-lance) famous in the Fire Emblem series are just some of many awesome mechanics to the game.
Alongside a beefy story mode, there will also be a side-mode, Colosseum mode, which is more like a boss rush style mode where you face off against certain enemy officers and their peons. Progressing through each officer to the next to reach your goal. You will see this in the Live Presentation attached below.
There are also a ton of new characters shown off, including those from recent Fire Emblem games as well! Be sure to check out both the trailer and the live presentation below to fully get in the know! Any Fire Emblem fan or Warriors fan won’t regret it!
The release date is still scheduled for Fall 2017, but hopefully as we are getting closer we will get a release date and much more information soon! Let us know in the comments what you think!
Last week during the “Atelier Series 20th Anniversary Presentation” there was a couple of big announcements! First of all, the next (and probably final) instalment of the Mysterious arc has been unveiled, called Riddii & Suuru no Atelier ~Fushigi no Kaiga no Renkinjutsushi~ (English title: Atelier Liddy & Sule ~The Alchemist of the Mysterious Painting~). This will also mark the return of the dual protagonists to the series. Not much else is known aside from the teaser pic (shown in the announcement picture), which shows silhouettes of the titular characters.
Secondly, and what could be quite interesting (though a whole lot more unlikely to come west) is Atelier Online ~Bureseiru no Renkinjutsushi~, which will be an online MMO game for Android and iOS devices. Developed by both Gust and NHN Play Art. You can check out the reveal trailer below to find out more for the game!
We will be adding pages to both games in the coming weeks with further information as and when revealed. Are you interested in these games? Let us know in the comments!
Today KOEI Tecmo announced that Gust’s RPG Blue Reflection will be making it’s way westward for both Playstation 4 and Steam (Sorry PS Vita users!). The game will be releasing 26th September for US and 29th September for Europe. We will be progressively updating our new game page for the game in the coming days, but for now check out the press release attached.
Hertfordshire, 6th June 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe is excited to confirm today the upcoming release of Blue Reflection, developer GUST Studios’ latest original project set in an all-girls high-school in modern day Japan. Headed to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and digitally to Windows PC via Steam® on the 29th September 2017, today’s announcement reveals information on the upcoming RPG’s heart-warming narrative, colourful main characters and pre-order bonuses alongside a first batch of assets.
Blue Reflection takes place at Hoshinomiya Girls’ High School, where players assume the role of student Hinako Shirai. When Hinako’s ballet career comes to an end after a tragic accident, she closes her heart off from the rest of the world. However, her life changes when she meets her new best friends, the magical Shijou twins – Yuzu, who is adored by her classmates for her cheerful and warm personality, and Lime, who is more logical and selfish.
The twin sisters bestow Hinako with the power of a Reflector, a champion who can manipulate a mysterious parallel dimension known as The Common. Hinako can freely move and shape this mystical realm’s beauty with her imagination, but she soon understands the very real perils that await her and her friends. As Hinako learns to treasure her companions and creates new bonds with those around her, she gains new strength to help her fight in The Common.
With more information on the game’s narrative, compelling characters and key mechanics being revealed in the coming months, Koei Tecmo released a selection of images showcasing school life in Blue Reflection, providing a first look at the game’s main character, Hinako Shirai, her closest friends, Yuzuki and Lime Shijou, Shihori Sugamoto, the innocent fashionista who treats everyone as equals, and the troublesome but kind-hearted Chihiro Inoue.
Koei Tecmo Europe also announced a delightful selection of pre-order bonuses available to those who purchase the title from Independent Retailers through Centresoft, or digitally on the PlayStation Store and Steam Marketplace, ahead of its launch on the 29th September 2017. The pre-order pack will include the School Swimsuit and Rorona style costumes, the latter being the outfit of Rorolina Frixell from Atelier Rorona – and a “FreeSpace!” theme to change the look of their social networking app, a key in-game feature used to stay in touch with companions outside of school. Those purchasing the game on the PlayStation®4 system will also receive an exclusive Original Custom Theme.
