Lu Bu is coming to get you!

Just days after Creative Asembly announced a new grand strategy set in the Three Kingdoms period Koei Tecmo graces us with a nifty trailer for the upcoming Dynasty Warriors 9. What a time to be alive.

What the trailer shows, in order:

  • open world structure
  • flexible mission structure, including Key plot-related missions and helpful side assignments
  • capturing bases
  • grappling hook!
  • redesigns of old characters and new officers on the roster, all with their own endings
  • State Combo System
  • officer-specific Special attacks
  • weapon upgrade system
  • horse training
  • material collecting
  • managing a personal hideaway

That’s quite a lot, and the game’s looking mighty fine.

Dynasty Warriors 9 launches worldwide on February 8th this year.
