Over the years, many developers and publishers from Japan have brought their franchises to mobile through old ports, new licensed releases, and more. Koei Tecmo and Omega Force’s popular Dynasty Warriors franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and there were two announcements made at TGS 2020 to celebrate this. The first was Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires for literally every console and PC that is set for an early 2021 release in and outside Japan. The second is Dynasty Warriors for iOS and Android. Dynasty Warriors is a hack and slash action RPG for mobile from Koei Tecmo and Omega Force. I’m very curious to see how this controls and runs when the closed beta takes place in Japan and we get some footage of it running on modern phones. Watch the teaser trailer for Dynasty Warriors from TGS 2020 below:
Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors franchise has had mobile releases through other companies in the past but this entry is in development at Koei Tecmo and Omega Force (via Twinfinite). The screenshots on the official website look pretty good and the game will feature portrait and landscape orientations in addition to co-op and asynchronous versus modes. As of now, a closed beta is planned for October 8th onwards with sign-ups now live here. An international release has not been announced as of this writing. It is possible they will wait for the game to release in Japan before deciding on an international release. I’m definitely up to try a mobile Dynasty Warriors game considering I’ve enjoyed my time playing almost every Warriors release on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PS Vita over the years.
