Dynasty Warriors 9 sounds rad, as long as the open world isn't busywork

As promised, Koei Tecmo blew the lid off of Dynasty Warriors 9, which is said to be the first true open world entry in the franchise. China will be featured as a "single map," which will still allow you to roam about the countryside slaying...   read

You won't be hacking and slashing much in the first hour of Dragon Quest Heroes 2

I’ve actually never played a Dragon Quest game before. I know of the series and some of its creatures, but my largest piece of knowledge is about how an elderly Japanese actress wanted to play IX before she died. To say I walked int...   read

Game of Thrones should get the Warriors treatment next

It's a good time to be a Warriors/Musou fan. For us in the west, we just got our hands on Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, which according to Chris is pretty darn good. Later this month, our friends over in Japan get their first crack...   read

New batch of Musou Stars character trailers feature my dude-a Opoona

The Dynasty Warriors series is my favorite video game series overall. Musou games bring me a joy I can't describe, really. It's just so satisfying to mow down waves of enemies as a super powered jerk who couldn't care less about their medic...   read

Review: Dynasty Warriors Godseekers

Porting a game to a less powerful platform takes dedication to get right. With so many Japanese PS4 games also showing up on the Vita, developers have to make the effort to ensure both versions are worth the asking price. It’s been do...   read

Koei Tecmo is doing a Fire Emblem Warriors game

Not much was shown apart from a quick teaser, but Koei Tecmo is going to be making a Fire Emblem themed Warriors game for the Nintendo Switch. Seeing as Hyrule Warriors was incredible, I have no doubt this game is going to be just as awesom...   read

Musou Stars producer wants 'a bit' of the body physics engine from Dead or Alive in the game

Musou Stars is still a thing, and it's glorious. It's basically an all-star mashup of Koei Tecmo's brawlers, and they're really starting to get weird with their cast choices -- I love it! But a few cast members might fundamentally change th...   read

New Dynasty Warriors game is less bashing, more clicking

Fate/Extella has been delayed in North America

You can vote on which characters make it into Musou Stars

We finally get to see the brutal Berserker Armor in Berserk Musou

Some of the coolest parts of Berserk are the arcs no one sees in the multitude of anime adaptations. Rather, they're tucked away in the [good] manga series, where Guts has to live with the choices of his friend Griffith and acquires a numbe...   read

Feast your eyes on some Bersek Musou videos

I'm a big fan of Dynasty Warriors, so I tend to be excited for all of the spin-off titles that Omega Force comes up with. I'm not familiar with Berserk, but a friend of mine tells me it's super brutal, so my interest is piqued. These new vi...   read
