Hey, remember Dynasty Warriors ? You didn't think it had gone away, did you…?

Via social media – Facebook and Twitter – Tecmo Koei has officially announced Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires .

It'll be coming to North America on February 19 and Europe on February 22. For us, this will not be delivered on a disc; it will only be available on the PlayStation Network. However, our European friends will get the option of physical media at brick-and-mortar retailers. Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires wasn't anything special in our books, so we're hoping this new installment will improve in a number of important areas. This is a pretty solid franchise that did relatively well last generation, but has slipped in terms of overall quality in the past three or four years. It has simply gotten stale.

Man, I still remember seeing the original Dynasty Warriors on the PS2. It was one of those games that you wanted to play, just because it looked so impressive when compared with the rest of the console world. However, that being said, it was the last Dynasty title I played.

Hey… Dynasty Warriors 7 did actually add some fun changes to the gameplay. I hate how this series is always under attack for the same stuff with each new entry. I'm not a fanboy of the series as I thought a few titles flat out sucked compared to others but I don't agree with all the negative attention these games get.

Its true, dynasty warriors gets bashed hard but how is call of duty any different? Really the difference between MW1-3 is very very slight with a bit of an exception to the MP. But gun control, physics, heck the voices are all reused, maps are usually reused or reworked but NO ONE says oh boy not another CoD game.

Yet Dynasty warrior does this and "OMFG they are aLL the same!!!" I'm not saying DW games aren't all very similar just saying the inconsistency with people and journalists is astounding sometimes.

@xernis
I agree with you 100% I wasn't going to name any franchises for the sake of not starting an argument (in case anyone would try and defend that point) but even then its hard to argue when you put it like that.

I loved Dynasty Warriors Tactics 2. That game was sick.

Unless you've never played the Empires version of DW games, I wouldn't expect anything new here. Like other Empires, this one is more like a spin to the main numbered title than offering anything new.

This franchise was a blast in the PS2 era. DW3 was a classic in my opinion. It's too bad the franchise doesn't get treated with the deserving treatment. Stale is right.

LOL, gone away thats funny!
they have been turning out these things almost at the rate of GH games!
maybe thats why they have not exactly been GOTY contenders……..
