Dynasty Warriors 9 looks like the biggest upgrade in quite a while

Dynasty Warriors 9 now doesn't have a release date, although it has been confirmed for PS4 in Japan.

As it stands, information is light however we do know number 9 will feature Zhou Cang as a playable character and that the new open world will house the entirety of the Chinese continent within one far-reaching map.

Koei Tecmo have released a new trailer which shows the new combat system in action, as well as providing a closer look at the game's new open-world environments. China's a pretty big place, after all, so it's nice to see the setting finally getting the scale that it deserves. Leap off a cliff and smash into the comments section below. And to make the most of players' new-found freedom, Koei Tecmo has today announced the Interactive Action system which allows them to make use of their surroundings like never before.

As fans eagerly wait for more news, Koei Tecmo has released a new trailer for Dynasty Warriors 9. Players will now be able to perform three different moves: Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks and Finish Attacks. Trigger Attacks will allow players to start an explosive combo. If your combo is successful, you can then end it with a devastating Finish Attack that obliterates any foes in its path. Technically, the game has only been announced for Japan, but it's unlikely to remain a Japan exclusive. These new enhancements aim to create a thrilling and fluid experience unlike any previous entry in the franchise.
