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.

In what could be a strange turn of events, A.O.T 2 – which released back in March 2018 – now has a demo available to download. With the release of A.O.T 2 Final Battle only a couple months away now, if you have yet to play the title you can now get in some good action time with the omni-directional mobility gear.
The demo itself is now available on Playstation 4, XBOX One and Nintendo Switch. There is currently no Steam demo, but it is likely to arrive in the near future.
A.O.T 2 is a good fun recreation of the anime, and ‘Final Battle’ will be bringing more content from the third season. A.O.T 2 Final Battle will be launching worldwide on July 5th.

In a very surprise turn of events, during last week’s Persona event, it was announced that codename “P5S” was not the rumoured port of Persona 5 to Nintendo Switch but none other than a new title by KOEI Tecmo. Called Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers you’ll face off against many different Persona’s as he famed cast from the hit Persona 5 title.
Not much is known aside it’s platforms – which are Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch – and the teaser trailer that you can watch below:
What we do know of the title is that the team behind Dragon Quest Heroes will be leading development of the game, that it is classed as an Action RPG instead of Tactical Hack n Slash that Warriors games are normally categorised as. It will also likely be some time until we see this release in the West, as no release date has been shared, but we will be sure to update as soon as more information surfaces!

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.

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?

The game will be releasing July 5th in the West, while a day earlier in it’s native lands of Japan. The expansion will also be arriving on all the same platforms, being PS4, XB1, Switch and PC.
Along with this, we also have some insight as to what this Expansion will offer. The meat of the content will focus on the third season of the Anime, making the total character tally at over 40, as well as new weapons, new original episodes and more! A new mode has also been confirmed known as Wall Reclamation Mode, which sounds quite like the basics of an Empires game. You form your own non-canon Squad, and go out conquering and defending territories from the Titans.
A few final details, for those who already own the original Attack on Titan 2 game, there will be a downloadable upgrade pack available, that will offer all the additional content “Final Battle” will bring to the table.
Now to leave this post off, have a gander at the new trailer that came with this announcement!

It has been a while since we have had any news related to KOEI Tecmo’s Attack on Titan series, and while we are not getting whiffs of a third entry to the series, there has been some interesting news surfacing out of Taiwan.
While KOEI Tecmo have not announced anything formally themselves, the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee has rated a title called Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle, listed for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC (XBOX One didn’t get a release in Taiwan, it’ll likely receive equal treatment in the West). Along with this news a ‘Final Battle Upgrade Pack’ (also listed for same platforms) has been rated, meaning it is likely that whatever the ‘Final Battle’ edition of the game has on offer, if you own the original game you can purchase the content presumably at a cheaper price.
We will have to wait and see a little longer when KOEI Tecmo announces the title themselves with what it will actually offer, and if it is worth us revisiting the game.
