Shin Sangoku Musou 5 scan

Shin Sangoku Musou 5 scan

Koei annonced yesterday during the Playstation Premiere that Shin Sangoku Musou 5, aka Dynasty Warriors, would be released on Playstation 3. As always, Famitsu gets the scoop with the first images. It looks like Koei finally gets some next-gen-ish assets for the game, quite a change from the straight PS2 ports they released on Xbox 360 until now.

whoa, LuBu looks like super Shredder. I'd be lying if i said i didnt like the character designs, but the gameplay is so tired. I hope they reinvigorate the series with something new in this one.

Yeah there was. Either it's translated wrong or this is a.. remake of sorts. :O

actually looks good from what I can see...better than bladestorm anyway, which did look like an old pc game

Ah yes! Right you are. The "first" here was a 1 on 1 fighter from Koei sporting the same characters.

I wish they'd just do the right thing and incorporate the Empires stuff and the arcadier initial release in the same game.

About the game


What's up?

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
