During this weekend’s Tokyo Game Show, publisher Koei Tecmo announced that its feudal franchise Dynasty Warriors will be making the leap to mobile platforms iOS and Android.
Not much in the way of intricate detail was offered regarding the new Dynasty Warriors mobile title, though a short teaser trailer appears to show that it will feature a scaled-down version of the franchise classic musou gameplay. Players will select a team of up to three characters, pulled from various entries in the Dynasty Warriors franchise, before diving into typical, mass-brawling action.
Despite the heavy on-screen combat depicted in the video, Koei Tecmo has noted that Dynasty Warriors is capable of “comfortable one-handed play” suggesting that you’re going to be getting your thumb-tap on. Also, of no surprise to anyone, both microstransaction and gacha elements will be featured, as players gather fighters for their ever-expanding roster.
Dynasty Warriors is currently in development for iOS and Android. In related news from the weekend, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires was also announced for PC and consoles.
