Well, you can't release a new piece of PlayStation hardware without a Dynasty Warriors game of some kind, right?

…wait, did they do it for the PlayStation 3? Well, whatever; Dynasty Warriors Next is on the way for the PlayStation Vita, and it might make Sony's new portable more attractive to die-hard action aficionados.

Tecmo Koei has confirmed that the new DW title will be available alongside the Vita on February 22 in North America. So yeah, add another potentially addictive handheld game to the launch lineup. By using the rear touch pad and the new Speed Musou function that lets players touch or shake their Vita to unleash devastating attacks, they'll experience Dynasty Warriors like never before.

Personally, I was kinda done with this series after I played the first one on the PS2. I remember it being impressive, though, because it was one of the first times gamers saw so many characters on screen at the same time. It actually helped to showcase the power of the second PlayStation, although future iterations didn't really push the envelope.

Over and Over this game is made, but I don't care since I love the genre, just not lately. Bring back Zhou Yu how he's supposed to be and maybe ūüėČ Or give me some more Dynasty Gundam, I still love those.

To me, I think dynasty gundam is actually the best gundam game made thus far. I have played a couple of others, but they just feel like a stereotypical video game based off an anime with low productions costs to just get quick cash.

Orochi warriors is also my most favorite warrior game.

Thought the series died. I'm not getting a Vita for a while, but when I do I don't think I'll be shaking the damn thing for any reason at all. Could you imagine watching people do that?

Dynasty Warriors 7 Xtreme Legends came out last month so the series is anywhere but dead. Which is fine as I have always enjoyed this series. Dynasty Warriors Online still going kinda strong too since coming out here over a year ago.

My roomie and I are big time Dynasty Warriors fans! Best Co-op, hack n'slash series! This is definitely on my radar now!

I miss the original Dynasty Warriors, the fighting one. Actually I still have it and play it. Love the game and soundtrack.

I just wish Tecmo Koei didn't switch to hack-n-slash so quickly. I have had no desire in the series since.
