Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires

Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires review

System: Switch
Release date: February 15, 2022
Developer: Omega Force
Publisher: Koei Tecmo

Around four years ago to the date, Dynasty Warriors 9 released globally and introduced a new perspective for the franchise with an open world format, though the feature seemed partially unnecessary. It was a neat idea that was unfortunately poorly implemented and left a bad taste in a lot of players’ mouths. Could an Empires edition – which many thought would be skipped – be able to unlock the original game’s potential? I truly believe that was the plan, and though this is a version that’s packed with all the content and changes Dynasty Warriors 9 spent years building post-launch, Empires is just a stripped down reminder that the title had a lot of its issues deep-rooted in its foundation that simply can’t be changed by adding more stuff as a distraction, and to make matters worse, the Switch version is borderline unplayable with how it runs.

To celebrate its release, Koei Tecmo has prepared a launch trailer for Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires, the newest entry in the Warriors series. The game just landed on Switch.
