Just known as Dynasty Warriors (not to be mistaken for Dynasty Warriors 9 Mobile from Nexon), the new mobile game developed internally by Omega Force will feature Dynasty Warriors 9 assets along with new ways to play. You can play the game in portrait or landscape modes, enjoy asynchronous versus and co-op with others and play in a 3 team setup (much like Warriors Orochi).
Check out the official overview and it’s trailer below:
Experience a further evolved Dynasty Warriors on your smartphone!
Numerous officers who have appeared in the series thus far will appear once again! The game also supports vertical screen orientation for comfortable one-handed play! You can also unite with or fight against other players, so enjoy everything the evolved “one against one-thousand action” has to offer.
The game will be hosting a closed beta during 8th October – 12th October. You can register for the beta here from now until October 5th. No word on when an official launch will happen.

Now yet another Dynasty Warriors title has been announced and shown off for mobile devices. Dynasty Warriors Domination, based on Dynasty Warriors 7 will be bringing co-op and pvp gameplay to Chinese mobiles in the near future. Developed by CMGE and published by Tencent, the game will boast fast and hectic hack n slash mayhem typical of the Dynasty Warriors games.
No news if this will be launching outside of China, but as Tencent has been making strides in the West of late, it is likely to happen eventually.
You can check out some gameplay footage of the title below (via Game Thriller):
We will have a game page up for the title in the near future.

After the successful launch of the first Monster Rancher / Monster Farm enhanced port at the tail end of last year in Japan, KOEI Tecmo has now been posting on Twitter in regards to a Monster Rancher 2 enhanced port.
While currently they are seeking feedback on what features or enhancements you would like to see made to a follow up release, it looks like they are already delving into development.
The first Monster Rancher enhanced port released only in Japan on iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch. It is likely the second game will receive the same treatment. Unfortunately still no news on any Western release plans for the series.

We have a small update regarding the upcoming mobile port of Dynasty Warriors 9, which Nexon Korea and KOEI Tecmo Japan announced back in 2019. During Nexon Korea’s 2019 Fiscal Results report, it was shown that Dynasty Warriors 9 Mobile is indeed coming to North America and Europe, along with other countries outside of Asia.
We also have an update from an even more recent fiscal results report from Q1 2020 being that the game is still in steady development and has not been halted at all due to the recent Covid-19 atrocities.
Hopefully some actual information on the title will be revealed soon. Until then you can enjoy the other Nexon produced title; Dynasty Warriors Unleashed.
