Dynasty Warriors Empires 8 Delayed to February

Originally slated for late January, Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires has been delayed to February 24 in North Americh and February 27 in Europe.


That's slightly surprising given that it's already out in Japan, releasing on November 20 last year, and that the game will not have English voiceovers. It is still scheduled to release for next-gen consoles PS4 and Xbox One, as well as PC through Steam, but will still have a SKU for PS3.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires packs 83 characters who will be familiar to the game's fans in the usual strategic gameplay that the Empires offshoot is known for. I am privy to its character creation system, which comes with additional customization for the horse and various officers.
