Dynasty Warriors 6 in March

Big leap for the series.

KOEI has trumpeted that its sparkly new Dynasty Warriors 6 will be available on 7th March for 360 and PS3.

Yes it has a larger number on the end of a familiar title, but this version boasts quite a few changes. Under its hood is a new engine, for starters, so it looks better and can handle more enemies on screen - useful for something like this.

Those baddies your are demolishing with your martial expertise should now be a bit brighter, too, presumably not the drunken oafs of the past as they respond with tactics of their own - adapting to your attacks and so challenging you to keep things fresh and imaginative or you die.

You will also be able to climb, swim, control boats, smash walls, and devastate armies with unlimited combo attacks using a new Renbu system. You can fight tigers and wolves, too. Essential.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with it all, Dynasty Warriors is based on an ancient Chinese book called Romance of the Three Kingdoms, which details the unification of the land after a series of big and bloody battles.

You take the role of a historically-famed hero and turn the tide of war in these various skirmishes, a bit like in that film Hero with Jet Li - demolishing literally hundreds of enemies single-handedly. It's all terribly good fun.

Anyway, pop over to our Dynasty Warriors 6 gallery to see how this revamped version is shaping up.
