As with each new release of an Empires game, the big question always is how will the Edit mode change things up? The Edit Mode hasn’t really had any big changes since Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires, however that is now to change with 9’s Empire iteration.
Dynasty Warrior 9 Empires edit mode is a much improved version of the customisation mode from Ni-Oh 2, including much more finer tuning for your characters looks and outfit designs. Along with it being an improved version, it will also offer both underlayer clothes and layered armour. This seems to be a spin on Dynasty Warriors 9’s “Informal clothes” function, but how it will take form in 9 Empires is still yet to be seen.
You will have full control of colours, body sizes and accessories for your numerous customized officers. You will also be able to use them in similar ways to Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires such as being a regular free roam warrior, an officer, marshal and ruler. According to KOEI Tecmo Japan there will be more positions for your characters than what we have had in prior instalments.
We will have more information on the Edit Mode and Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires soon.
Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires launches worldwide Q1 2021 for PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam.

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.

This year (August 3rd to be exact) marks the 20th Anniversary for KOEI Tecmo’s Shin Sangoku Musou (or Dynasty Warriors 2 onwards for us westerners) series, and producer Akihiro Suzuki has spilled some news of what is in store.
In an interview with Famitsu Magazine, Akihiro Suzuki exclaimed he hoped to announce a new Dynasty Warriors Anniversary title in the near future, with more than one game coming. Suzuki also re-confirmed that there would be no Dynasty Warriors 9 Xtreme Legends, which rules it out as part of the Anniversary celebration releases.
“The [Dynasty Warriors 9] system itself isn’t suited to Xtreme Legends.”
Suzuki also liked the direction they took with Dynasty Warriors 9, but admitted that there was a lot of issues, resulting in them biting off more than they could chew. However he would like to build upon the critical feedback in perhaps a ‘Dynasty Warriors 9 II’ – much like Samurai Warriors 4 II – though this is purely his own opinion and not something currently in production.
Lastly Suzuki talks about that future numbered Dynasty Warriors titles may not be an open world, though he would like to try and incorporate more ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms’ functionality to the game.
We should be hearing very soon about starting plans of the Dynasty Warriors Anniversary celebration, for now check out this lovely video featuring the titles over the years:

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.
What are your thoughts on Dynasty Warriors 9 Mobile as a whole? Are you excited to give it a go? Let us know in those comments!
It has been a while since we have been able to make any sort of update on the anticipated Chinese live action adaptation of Dynasty Warriors. But now we finally have a bit more to share on it. As mentioned back at the tail end of last year, Dynasty Warriors: Destiny of an Emperor is still scheduled for a 2019 release. This hasn’t changed and production has been going along smoothly.
So good in fact that the film is now fully finished. Production ended on the film earlier in the year, so this news means we will be seeing it hit Hong Kong cinemas hopefully in the near future. No news has risen about the title being delayed so you should still expect it’s 2019 planned release.
As well as knowledge of the production being finished and it’s release going forward, some interesting bits of trivia have popped up. It took them three years to convince KOEI Tecmo to give them the green-light to make start production of the movie (which started in 2016). Justin Cheung (plays Zheng Fei) had to gain 15 pounds specifically to play his role, and Louis Koo (plays Lu Bu) had a severe eye injury on set, requiring 8 stitches.
So yes, this may not be the biggest of news, but it is great to know that everything has gone along fine, the actors who got into mishaps are all fine, and the movie should be ready to launch sometime this year in Hong Kong theatres.
