Seven months after launch, Dynasty Warriors 9 will be receiving two player split-screen and online co-op this week.
The release date has been confirmed for October 23 alongside some other interesting snippets of information. First up, co-op mode will give you the choice to use all the officers you’ve already unlocked and players can drop-in and drop-out at will. While playing local-cop, player one will get all the items they’ve gathered, but during online play each player will get to keep the items they earned.
They’ll be co-op moves that can be executed in tandem and a demo version of the c-op mode will be available

New ‘scenarios’ are also coming, which likely refers to the fact that new missions will be added to the game. The new content is expected to launch by the end of the year.
