Koei Tecmo has finally started giving details out for the recently announced Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden. The game’s story is a grand fantasy adventure following the Dynasty Warriors character Zhao Yun and two other new characters, Lei Bin and Li Xia. The game takes place during the Three Kingdoms era of ancient China and looks set to add more fictional elements as the story progresses.
The official website also gives more details on the new characters. Li Xia is voiced by Minami Tsuda and her bio reads;
“A girl sealed away for many years in a shrine near the village where Zhao Yun was raised. When Zhao Yun and his childhood friend Lei Bin visit the shrine, she awakens. Why was she sealed? Who exactly is she?”
Lei Bin is being voiced by Makoto Furukawa, Lei Bin is Zhao Yun’s old friend and a scholarly young man who likes investigating old legends and historical things. In a small shrine near the village, Lei Bin and Zhao Yun encounter Li Xia, who was sealed away. They solve the seal. Because of her curiosity and his quest for the truth, Li Xia sticks with Zhao Yun and Lei Bin.
The game will play as a turn based RPG and will see the player attempting to out manoeuvre the enemies on the field. It is unclear how the grid based combat system works though more details are sure to be unveiled in the near future.
