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, 29th June 2017 – KOEI TECMO Europe today proudly revealed that the standalone sequel to the gothic fairy tale action RPG from developer GUST Studios, Nights of Azure, is headed to western shores as Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon on the 27th October 2017. Nights of Azure 2 marks the publisher’s western debut on Nintendo Switch™, with simultaneous releases planned for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam®.
Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon takes place in a fictional, demon-ridden Western European city towards the end of the 19th century. The story focuses on a knight protector named Alushe and her two childhood friends – Liliana, a kind-hearted priestess, and Ruhenheid, a holy knight of the Lourdes Order. While guarding Liliana, Alushe is ambushed and killed only to later awaken as an artificial half-demon at the hands of the New Curia, a religious organisation with dark ties. In the company of a variety of unlikely allies with their own pasts and agendas, Alushe’s strong desire to save Liliana gives her the strength to scatter the shadows shrouding the world and motivation to uncover the shocking truth behind the mysterious Queen of the Moon.
To introduce some of the colourful characters who comprise the game’s new cast, KOEI TECMO Europe has released a selection of assets featuring Alushe Anatoria, Liliana Selphin and Ruhenheid Ariarod alongside a trailer with a first look at the demon-ridden setting where their narrative unfolds.

We have gained a couple of additions to our website! What is first of many to come, we have fully updated the Musou Stars page to it’s western release, so now it is Warriors All-Stars! It can be found in the KOEI menu under “Other KOEI Games”.
Also we have added a completely new page, Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada. It can be found in the KOEI menu under “Samurai Warriors”. Over the coming days we will be padding out both these areas with information, goodies and what-not. But for now you can find the basic information such as release dates, platforms they are coming to, publisher/developer and if it allows multiplayer.
We hope to have more of this to come alongside reporting on news and even more “new” things from us for the site and fans!
