Andriasang recently published a batch of screenshots from Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires, the upcoming second expansion to Tecmo Koei’s latest in feudal Chinese beat’em up action.  The screenshots are a mix of early game scenes, menus, and gameplay, complete with a healthy dose of perennial series bulldozer Lu Bu.

The Empires expansions have always been more tactically-oriented than their parent games.  With the sweeping changes made to the gameplay and presentation in Dynasty Warriors 7, DW7: Empires could be subject to a similar treatment, but its more strategic focus will undoubtedly remain.

The full gallery can be found here.

About Justin Graham

Justin joined Oprainfall through…belligerence. (Note to others: This is not a good way to get noticed. This sort of thing only works once.) When he’s not writing about games or waxing nostalgic about anime older than a large portion of the site’s audience, he can be found playing JRPGs or beating up lots of dudes in Dynasty Warriors.
