Remember Romance of the Three Kingdoms?
You probably don’t because hardly anyone does. Romance of the Three Kingdoms is another series that Koei seems to have completely disowned as if they never gave birth to it. It gave you China in several scenarios and you got the chance to either roam around as a free officer, join a kingdom as a loyal warrior, or rule the land like you always wanted. Does this sound familiar? That’s because it’s clearly the inspiration for Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires. Except they ditched the Fire Emblem style combat for Dynasty Warriors’. Basically, made it a million times better.
