Now KOEI Tecmo have confirmed that these same outfits, along with four new ones featured for female officers will be arriving as DLC June 27th across all platforms. This DLC is not part of any Season Pass content so it will be a separate purchase, so no need to worry about double buying the same content.
As there is still no news if Dynasty Warriors 9 will be receiving a Season Pass 4, but it is nice to see some content is still trickling through for the game.
Dynasty Warriors 9 is out now worldwide for Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC via Steam.

Last week Dynasty Warriors 9 received a major Spring update that added a whole bunch of quality of life improvements including new Bodyguard and Animal Companion systems. Now along with this patch update, a Daily Bonus Campaign has now started underway.
Running from April 4th until May 18th, each day you play the game will grant you different bonuses such as increased gold or increased synthesis yields. It also looks like these bonuses will change things up every so many days also.
The current bonuses you can find below:
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 DAILY CAMPAIGN BONUS
Monday – Increased gold, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Tuesday – Increased experience, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Wednesday – Additional material drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Thursday – Additional “Book of Musou” drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Friday – Additional “Old Coins” drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Saturday – increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Sunday – Additional “Synthesis” materials drops, increased effectiveness of “Tranquilizer Arrows”.
Until April 13th UTC
When April 13th hits, we can only assume these bonuses will change for further days of play. So keep an eye in game if you are interested in taking advantage of these daily bonuses.
Dynasty Warriors 9 is out now for Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC via Steam. This event is active on all systems. Also a quick note, the patch is now live for XBOX One users of Dynasty Warriors 9!

It’s not very often we get to put out new coverage for Dynasty Warriors 9, but here we are Spring 2019 – just over a year from it’s initial launch back in February 2018, and KOEI Tecmo has pushed out a big Spring Update, free for all players of the game!
For those of you still playing or have been waiting for a reason to get back into the game, but are unsure on about purchasing the rather expensive DLC packs (expect a Warriors’s Judgement on this soon). Now may be the time to gather your fellow Warriors and head back out into the open world of China!
The update itself includes the following:
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 v1.27 (PS4) / v1.24 (Steam)
–Added BGM from Previous DYNASTY WARRIORS series.
–Added new emotes.
–Added an animal companion system.
–Added a bodyguard system.
–Added new modes “Rampage” to the Arena.
–Made Improvements to Castle Sieges.
–Added animals to the gallery.
–Corrected a number of other minor issues.
The XB1 version of the game should also now have the update as of time of writing.
As you can see, there is quite a lot to dig your teeth into. Not only do we just have update notes, KOEI Tecmo have also gone into detail on what some of these new systems entail. Now animals will be able to develop as they fight alongside you, with varying degrees of differences on how each animal will develop uniquely. Though to also add to this, if your animal happens to fall in battle, then they are permanently dead. You can also spend upgrade points on developing your animals even further, increasing their abilities on the field of combat.
Alongside the new integrated animal companion system, there is the bodyguard system. You can now invite a fellow officer to join you as an AI companion either by finding them in town or inviting them to your hideaway. You will also have the choice to swap their weapons and accessories. There are two categories of bodyguards, “Attack” type and “Defense” type, so pick which fits your fighting style best!
That’s all there is for this update, but it’s good to see the ol’ girl is still kicking, even if the game suffered a dreadful launch. Certainly now, even still with it’s quirks and oddities, the content is finally here for us to dabble in.

In some random news (thanks to our buddy BlackKite), KOEI Tecmo has formed a collaborative partnership with 2019 Suzuka 8 Endurance Race, with Dynasty Warriors 9 characters featuring as sponsors for Motorcycle manufacturers that are part of it all.
Along with the partnership and characters sponsoring, the manufacturers Motorcycles will also be sporting Dynasty Warriors 9 themed liveries. They have already featured in quite a few PR events around Japan for the upcoming Endurance Race.
Below you can see the four guys representing their brands:
You can find more information and images of their collaborative efforts on their Event site here! There is currently no news if these collaborative outfits will make their way to the Dynasty Warriors 9 game itself. So we just have one question left to ask, which manufacturer do you support?

Dynasty Warriors 9 recently went live with a second Season Pass, offering a bunch more additions including costumes, weapons and more scenarios to enjoy. Though the first pack has released which has dropped a bunch of costumes for a fair amount of characters.
Along with this, we also have a lot more detailed information on what we will be getting with the Season Pass from now until January 2019 (even though they say February for some scenarios). With four characters getting new scenarios (unfortunately no new characters) and a lot of returning weapons from Dynasty Warriors 8. You can see the full detail list below (click to enlarge):
As you can see there is quite a lot of additions coming our way, though it is unfortunate that the new scenarios aren’t bringing in any new characters – it is nice to see Xu Shu whom had an incredibly short story is getting some additional screen time.
You can buy the Season Pass 2 for Dynasty Warriors 9 now on Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC via Steam.
