We may still know relatively little on the Western release for Dynasty Warriors 9 other than an Early 2018 window, however we now know the official release date for it in Japan on PS4 (XBOX One and Steam as well for the West). The game will be releasing 8th February 2018. What could this mean for us in the west? That is still uncertain but we are sure it will likely be within months (if not a universal release week like Ni-Oh). News and speculation on how the localisation will be handled, such as there being an English dub or not is still up in the air. But this certainly means we are getting one step closer to checking out Omega Forces new take on the Warriors franchise.
Along with this news, KOEI Tecmo announced there will be a Season Pass for Dynasty Warriors 9. What it will entail is still undisclosed but we can only hope this isn’t the start of certain campaigns being locked off behind a paywall. Imagine having to pay to be a part of the Yellow Turban Rebellion or the Dong Zhuo Uprising? We will definitely be keeping a close eye on how things will progress.
Other than that, usual pre-order incentives were mentioned, such as collaborative costumes for Zhao Yun and weapon skins depending where you purchase the game – along with e Deluxe Edition of the game including the Season Pass being released alongside it. All pre-order incentives will become available for purchase later after release, however it is unknown if Season Pass holders will get them for free or not.

As it looks like Dynasty Warriors 9 is getting closer to finishing development, more and more information and details are being officially revealed. One of these is yet another new character, Xun You of Wei. But who is this fellow? And why is his name shockingly close to the last games added character; Xun Yu? Well lets elaborate on who and what Xun You’s involvement in Dynasty Warriors 9 is!
Xun You, one of many famous advisors for Cao Cao, was known most through the war against the Yuan family and especially the battle of Guandu where he served as Chief Advisor. He is the cousin to Xun Yu (Thus name relation), and became an advisor for Cao Cao by his recommendation. Along with leading many successful tactics against the Yuan family, he also advised alongside Cao Cao to attack and decimate the remainder of Lu Bu’s forces forcing his hand to hold up at Xia Pi Castle. Xun You also was strongly against Cao Cao’s aspiration to become Duke of Wei, and due to this succumbed to illness and died in 214AD.
In Dynasty Warriors 9, Xun You will be a part of Wei’s army post Dong Zhuo uprising. He wields a Steel Whipsword. Being with Cao Cao, he will prove just how easy it is to run rings around the larger Yuan family armies, and secure victory with wits rather than manpower!

Hertfordshire, 22nd June 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe today revealed exciting new combat mechanics and exploration features slated to debut with the upcoming instalment in developer Omega Force’s long-running action franchise, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9. An impressive new trailer released alongside today’s announcement provides a closer look at the beautifully rendered environments and dynamic combat systems that players can look forward to.
DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 introduces exhilarating new combat mechanics to the series’ signature “one versus thousands” style gameplay with the State Combo System. This new system allows players to perform 3 different attack styles – Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks – each dealing progressively more damage. Trigger Attacks allow players to create the start of an explosive combo, leading to Flow Attacks, which adapt to the enemy’s current state. Successful combos allow for a Finish Attack to be performed, delivering a final blow that eradicates any foes caught in its path. These new enhancements aim to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise.
Augmenting the series’ first true open world is another immersive innovation introduced in DYNASTY WARRIORS 9: the Interactive Action system. Players will be able to fully utilise their surroundings for the first time in the Warriors franchise with the ability to climb buildings and mountains, wield grappling hooks to traverse walls, and make use of objects like oil barrels in battle. These new actions offer a breadth of new possibilities for players to take advantage of while travelling around third-century China, or when caught in the heat of battle!
Unifying the classic, time-tested action iconic to the Warriors series with a variety of new features, characters, and content in an expansive open world environment, DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 aims to deliver the most immersive and ambitious DYNASTY WARRIORS experience to date. Platforms, release timing, and more information on the game’s new features, characters, and narrative will be unveiled in the coming months.
