A brand new Dynasty Warriors game which is headed our way just the other side of the new year.
Koei Tecmo has gotten in touch to announce a brand new tactics-style epic in Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers, set in the legendary Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history and slated to be released early next year on PlayStation Vita.
It pulls roots from the Dynasty Tactics series, offering a unique way to experience the events of the saga, and adds two new characters to the mix; Lixia – a girl with magical powers that was sealed inside an icy shrine for centuries, and Lei Bin – Zhao Yun’s childhood friend and a master of lore!
Here’s the official description from the press release;
“Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers unfolds during the chaotic end days of the Han dynasty, when ancient China was overwhelmed by uprisings and internal strife within its imperial court. The story follows renowned warrior Zhao Yun and his close friend Lei Bin, who unwittingly liberate a young girl, Lixia, from a mystical prison. The two friends and the mysterious Lixia then find themselves entangled in a pivotal struggle for the salvation of the world, wherein they must navigate the maelstrom that is Three Kingdoms era China, meet countless great warriors and take part in historic battles. In their efforts to unravel the mystery behind Lixia’s imprisonment, Zhao Yun and Lei Bin uncover a hidden, terrible fate, forcing them to make difficult decisions in a battle that will echo throughout history.”
