Dynasty Warriors is getting a new RPG mobile game later this year. This week, Nexon Korea officially announced that there will be a new action RPG based on the Dynasty Warrior franchise coming to smartphones later this year. Project Dynasty Warriors is the working title for the game, and it’s scheduled for a late 2016 release for Android and iOS.
The new hack n’ slash action RPG is based on the Koei Tecmo Dynasty Warriors franchise. It’s being developed by the Taipei-based studio, XPEC Entertainment Inc. This game is based on the eighth official installment of the series, which is Dynasty Warriors 8. The RPG draws from writer Luo Guanzhong’s historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Players will take part in the faction-based storyline and battle waves of warriors who want to crush the enemies of their lords. Project Dynasty Warriors will have an enhanced collection element and a host of unique characters to choose from, along with the seamless gameplay mechanics and graphics of the console version, for players to dominate the battlefield.
Speaking on the news, Nexon Korea Jiwon Park stated: “Dynasty Warriors is a beloved and fan-favorite franchise that has endured for nearly two decades and gives Nexon Korea another AAA title for audiences around the world to enjoy. Fully enhanced for mobile while retaining the feel of the console versions, Project Dynasty Warriors will immerse hardcore gamers and deliver everything that made the Dynasty Warriors series a beloved global masterpiece.”
