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.

KOEI Tecmo and HAMSTER have been cooperating for a while now in bringing their old Arcade titles to the Nintendo Switch, and now we have yet another new title added to the ever growing library. The title in question is Solomon’s Key, which is a puzzle based escape room type game. It is one of Tecmo’s early Arcade hits that also got ports to several home consoles during it’s hay day.
