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.

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.

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:
