Dynasty Warriors 9 is getting a third season pass for some reason


Lu Bu is never satisfied

Koei Tecmo has announced that a third season pass will be coming to Dynasty Warriors 9. Beyond all reason, there was enough extra content in the pipeline to separate the DLC out into three individual packages. Is that why the game launched in such a barren state? This latest pack will be available next Thursday, February 14, in Japan for 5,800 yen. That's roughly $52!!!

The pass will include six new weapons, 16 new costumes, and four new scenarios that will be released over February, March, and April. The weapons will feature the likes of the Steel Flute, Flail and Crossed Pike, while characters like Cao Pi and Lu Su will be receiving hypothetical scenarios for you to tinker with. The full list of additional content is below.

The following characters will get Knight-style costumes:

  • Lu Xun
  • Xun Yu
  • Wang Yuanji
  • Yue Jin
  • Sun Shangxiang
  • Ma Dai
  • Xin Xianying
  • Gan Ning (Samurai costume)
  • Xingcai
  • Guan Yinping
  • Diaochan
  • Li Dian
  • Lianshi
  • Jia Chong
  • Wang Yi
  • Ling Tong (Samurai costume)

The following new weapons will be added:

  • Sanjiegun
  • Steel Flute
  • Fang Bow
  • Flail
  • Crossed Pike
  • Bow & Rod

The following characters will get additional hypothetical scenarios and costumes:

  • Cao Pi
  • Fa Zheng
  • Lu Su

I'm mostly just surprised that more DLC is even coming to this game. Was fixing the core problems with Dynasty Warriors 9 never considered? I appreciate not releasing a second disc for Xtreme Legends, but 9 has way too many issues to justify multiple seasons passes above gameplay refinements. Still, I guess somebody is buying all this content, because why else does it keep coming?
