Dynasty Warriors 6 goes gold

KOEI’s slash-happy strategy series, Dynasty Warriors, is hitting the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next week in the form of Dynasty Warriors 6. The title, which now features swimming and climbing, has just achieved gold status and will ship to all major retailers on February 19, 2008.

An excerpt from the press release follows:

"Based on the epic novel, ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms’, Dynasty Warriors 6 depicts the massive battles ignited by the fall of the Han Dynasty when three rebellious states moved to overthrow the Emperor of China.

"Developed from the ground up exclusively for next-generation platforms, the game’s proprietary engine delivers the most chaotic and challenging Tactical Action experience to date. Players can use the landscape to elude the thousands of soldiers swarming the battlefield. But as players move and attack, adaptable enemy A.I. devises offensive and defensive combat tactics, and can retaliate with packs of fierce hunting dogs and patrol boats. All of the explosive action comes to life in high definition, 60 frames per second (fps) graphics."
