Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden turns the series into a Strategy RPG

While the Dynasty Warriors series has been around for 15 years, the game has been synonymous with large scale battles with players taking control of specific heroes from The Three Kingdom eras of China to wipe out the enemy army. While hardcore strategy gamers always had The Romance of the Three Kingdoms games, the new Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden aims to give gamers a new way to enjoy the series as a turn-based Strategy RPG title.

The Japanese trailer for Eiketsuden was released earlier this week, it shows off some of the story which follows Zhao Yun, and two newcomers to the series, the inventor/gunslinging Lei Bin, and the mystical Li Xia. The trailer also shows some classic grid based Strategy RPG gameplay.

Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden is set to release later this year in Japan for PS4, PS3 and Vita. Unfortunately, there is no confirmation on if the game will be coming to North America.
