A man's life of 50 years
is nothing compared
to the age of this world

Life is but a fleeting dream


Samurai Warriors never dropped the Create-a-Warrior gimmick, but then again Samurai Warriors games typically have huge gaps in between releases and there's only 4 of them compared to Dynasty Warriors' 9 and the wait between SW3 and SW4 was 5 years.

Don't worry my friends. I will be your shield.

A compilation of a whole lot of character action trailers for DW9:

A bunch of those weapons are actually really dope.
Dual swords being combined in different ways to create big sword/two swords/sword polearm.
Nunchaks being used as guns?

Also I think all the character have very unique movesets even if they share a weapon? It's hard to tell but there are no moves that stood out as being re-used between characters.
I might be blind though.

I got to say this has sold me on DW9. Even if the open world stuff ends up being a pain in the rear end (And truth be told I still kinda think that. The best I am hoping for is SW-esque battlefield objectives on a very large scale for the main battles), the combat itself looks the best it has been for a DW mainline title.

Looks like they are splitting the difference for the bow users in having them use their bow for EX and Musou attacks while giving them a melee weapon.
