Itching to get back onto the great battlefields of China? It's been just around 4 years now since the last main entry in Omega Forces' classic 1v1000 brawler. Though we're without a release date, an information drop pertaining to Dynasty Warriors 9 is better than nothing.
And we've been gifted just yet. While light on any official trailer, we're being introduced to two new characters and a bunch of new battle system details for the time being.
Whether you're taking part in the massive conflicts raging across China or not, they'll still rage on. Emphasising the ability to roam free and choose your own adventure; skirmishes, side missions and brawls big and small can be triggered depending on where across the land you chooses to travel. How you deal with this sense of freedom will directly affect the difficulty of battles going forward. Stopped an enemy messenger or butchered one of their officers? You better believe that'll have a knock-on effect.

From the Kindgom of Wei comes Man Chong; a strong tactician, his charisma means he's particuarly potent when it comes to getting his point across in a debate. Hailing from Shu, however, is Zhou Cang; another powerful general known for being more than capable on the battlefield when it comes to out-running the opposition. Both are playable in-game and should offer up a wide range of stories to experience.
For those who'd rather stick with the old and familiar, Sun Shangxiang, Lu Xun and Lu Bu will be getting lots of costume love this time around. Hopefully we'll have release details in time.
