Koei Temco has announced that the latest entry in their long running Musou series, Dynasty Warriors 9 will be coming West. This new entry promises the same “1 vs. 1000” gameplay series fans have come to know and love. This time around however, the world will be much more open and will allow the player to explore it for the first time! Bringing a staggering 80+ characters into the fold, this certainly sounds like there will be a lot of hacking and slashing when this one finally drops.
