Dynasty Warriors 7 brings the Wu & Shu in new trailer

Tecmo Koei has revealed not one, but two new trailers this week, detailing some of the characters from the kingdoms of Wu and Shu. They’re full of flashy attacks and delightfully camp hair metal music, which is all you can ask for. 

Unfortunately, I’ve gone off Dynasty Warriors 7 quite a bit since finding out that most of the standard movesets are cloned, with general attacks being shared between two to three characters. That was my biggest problem with DW6, and to see it replicated again is pretty gross. 

I’m hoping it’s not as bad it sounds, but for now, a lot of my excitement has dampened. At least there’s Samurai Warriors Chronicles and Legends of Troy to look forward to.
