About Dynasty Warriors 6
Selling over 15 million units combined worldwide, KOEI's award-winning Dynasty Warriors series and Samurai Warriors series of Tactical Action games have become an astonishing success and are global phenomenon. With Dynasty Warriors 6, KOEI is reinventing the Tactical Action experience for the next generation.
Set in Ancient China during the 3rd century, Dynasty Warriors 6 immerses gamers in a truly cinematic kung-fu action experience. Celebrated characters have been completely re-imagined with new weapons and fighting techniques motion-captured from some of today's leading stuntmen and women in Asia. With the game's new "Renbu" attack system and game controls, players can execute lightning-fast combos and the most dazzling fighting moves with ease.
Developed from the ground up exclusively for next-generation platforms, the game's proprietary engine delivers the most chaotic and challenging Tactical Action experience to date. Players can use the landscape to elude the thousands of soldiers swarming the battlefield. But as players move and attack, adaptable enemy A.I. devises offensive and defensive combat tactics, and can retaliate with packs of fierce hunting dogs and patrol boats. All of the explosive action comes to life in high definition, 60 frames per second (fps) graphics.
Based on the epic novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dynasty Warriors 6 depicts the massive battles ignited by the fall of the Han Dynasty when three rebellious states moved to overthrow the Emperor of China.
Created by KOEI's Omega Force team, Dynasty Warriors 6 delivers breathtaking visuals in 720p HDTV, and in-game Dolby®Digital audio. This game has not yet been rated by the ESRB. Dynasty Warriors 6 is for 1 to 2 players. Press can find (watermark-free) assets at gamespress.com. For the latest information on Dynasty Warriors 6, visit www.koei.com.
