Dynasty Warriors Next screens show maps, create-a-warrior

Hardcore fans of Dynasty Warriors have been lamenting the passing of a Create-A-Warrior feature ever since it disappeared a few sequels back. Well, it's returning in the PlayStation Vita iteration, Dynasty Warriors Next

These new screens show off some of the character creation tools, as well as loads of maps. It seems like making your own original heroes will be pretty simple as usual, but I hope they've made things a little more involved. After playing with my own unique avatars in Saints Row: The Third and Skyrim, a few head swaps won't cut it. 

Not that I'm a big fan of original DW characters anyway. Show me to Zhang He and then piss off!
