Pair of PlayStation 3 games, more Warriors installments headline publisher's lineup for this year's expo.
Koei today pulled the wraps off the games it will showcase at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, with a pair of offerings for Sony's next-gen console headlining the publisher's lineup.
The company's Omega Force development team will have a hand in both the action game Blade Storm: The Hundred Years War and the futuristic racer Fatal Inertia, which is being developed in cooperation with Koei's Toronto, Ontario, studio. While both of these games appear to be entirely new franchises, the rest of Koei's lineup is built mostly of more-familiar offerings. The full announced lineup is as follows:
Blade Storm: Hundred Years War
Samurai Warriors 2
Samurai Warriors 2
Gitaroo Man Lives!
Dynasty Warriors Vol. 2
Dynasty Warriors DS
Uncharted Waters Online
Dynasty Warriors BB (working title)
DW is so awesome it doenst matter if it is the same thing over and over people will still buy cuz it rules!!! no one else can do it becuase no one else believes that just fighting 100000 guys is useful to a game but it is o it is heavenly sword kinda did that but it was a timed limit
Well for me DW is my life got hooked to it when I played DW3 for me Koei is a great company so I can't wait for the next DW game and I just noticed they are making DW online now that I WILL BUY!
Believe it or not, Samurai Warriors has tons of tweaks to make it better than Dynasty Warriors. Don't call it Dynasty Warriors or anything. SW2 is what I want, and that DW for PC.
Good they are showing Uncharted Waters Online , hope they give more detail about the game and more importantly release date ..
It will be interesting to see the change in the genre in Fatal Inertia, from the legendary sequels of dynasty and samurai warriors. We'll live and see.
There are two types of people in this world...rabid Koei fanboys and rabid Koei haters. Not a lot of neutral opinions on those guys. Personally, I think Koei ran out of steam in 1994---Uncharted Waters 2 was pretty much the (pun intended) high-water mark, one of the best games of its kind of all time (wasn't until the Port Royale games came out that it was truly topped). I just haven't been able to personally muster any interest in them since then. (oh well, that's what I have an SNES emulator for)
How do they get away with making the same beatemup over and over? SImple... cause no one else seems to be able to get it right....
Most of you need to realize that people in the East love Dynasty Warriors. (and most of Koei games for that matter) These games sell very well overseas and Koei has no problem releasing one after another after another with only a few upgrades. They have always worked this way. They are very similar to their publisher (owner???) EA. Koei has been around a very long time and knows how to keep people buying the same games year after year. This may not be your cup of tea but the people who are into these games buy them all.
Uncharted Waters Online eh? This has the potential to be amazing. Although Wii would be even cooler, I'm glad its on PC as I always felt standard console controllers bogged down the gameplay a bit in the SNES games.
Too many Dynasty Warriors games, and the use the name warriors too much.The only game I may like is Fatal Inertia.
No games for Wii. However I'll be looking forward to see the Dynasty Warriors for the Nintendo DS and the games they are showing for the PS3. A very nice selection of games from Koei to show at E3.
this just in::: an expansion pack for Dynasty warriors: samurai legend empires....Part 2 has been announced for all next gen consoles, it will be called dynasty warriors: samurai legend empires....Part 2 musou!
I want to see more on Dynasty Warriors DS! Let's wait for the other companies to come forth to share their lineups!
Wish koei will do romance of three kingdoms X (English version) on PSP version. All I see that it just keep churning out VII in Jap or Chinese version.
lol..you guys and gals should be happy atleast their not ALL FPS!..Don't get me wrong I like shooters but enough is enough already...lol.
korn18m axia_777, do you know how tired your arm would be after just 20 minutes of play?-------- Good exersize my man. Imagine how Zelda is going to be. Yah, sword games are going to take some endurance for sure with the Revolution. But bring it on, I am in good shape. Sports games may be difficult for some to play as well, like football. But a DW game would kick ass. Zelda too. And that REd Steele game, that sounds good too.....
