During its Tokyo Game Show 2020 Presentation, Koei Tecmo revealed Shin Sangokumusou or Dynasty Warriors for mobile platforms.
Unlike many mobile spin-offs, this game is developed directly by Omega Force and operated by Koei Tecmo.
This is among the games that Koei Tecmo is releasing to celebrate the series’ 20th anniversary, which were teased by producer Akihiro Suzuki back in August. The other title is Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires.
You can check out the trailer revealed during the show below.
The latest game of the franchise is Dynasty Warriors 9 was released all the way at the beginning of 2018 and it’s currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’re unfamiliar with the it, you can read our review.
Incidentally, if you’re wondering about the discrepancy in the numbers between the Japanese and English titles, the game named “Dynasty Warriors” in the west (“Sangokumusou” in Japan) actually isn’t really part of the franchise.
The first true Dynasty Warriors game was “Shin Sangokumusou” in 2000. Since there already was a Dynasty Warriors in the west, it was simply called Dynasty Warriors 2.
That’s why Dynasty Warriors 9 is titled Shin Sangokumusou 8 in Japan, and Dynasty Warriors 10 is titled Shin Sangokumusou 9.
That being said, this doesn’t really affect this new mobile game, since it doesn’t have a number.
