Dynasty Warriors 6 US date revealed

Koei has announced that the strategic action videogame Dynasty Warriors 6 will launch in North America February 19, 2008 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

“Dynasty Warriors 6 will deliver the massive scale battles that gamers have come to expect from the series, and will push the envelope of Tactical Action. Our goal is to redefine the Dynasty Warriors series,” said Amos Ip, Senior Vice President at KOEI Corporation.

“We’ve created more immersive environments where players can use the features of the battlefield to their advantage, larger armies with a presence and strategy befitting their superior numbers, and re-imagined characters with the most authentic kung-fu showcased in a way only KOEI can deliver. This is truly the next great chapter in the Dynasty Warriors saga.”

The Dynasty Warriors series has sold well over 15 million copies worldwide. Said to reinvent the tactical action experience, Dynasty Warriors 6 will take place in a 3rd century China where great battles revolve around the Han Dynasty plunge in which three mutinous states try to overthrow the Emperor of China.
