Koei Tecmo announced today that Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is coming to North America on January 31, 2017 and Europe on February 1, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as a digital-only title.

A brand new tactics-style game that takes cues from the Dynasty Tactics series, Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers stars Zhao Yun and offers an alternate way to experience the events of the saga. In addition to a selection of characters from the Dynasty Warriors universe, Godseekers also includes two new characters: Lixia, a girl with magical powers that was sealed in an icy shrine for centuries, and Lei Bin, Zhao Yun’s childhood friend and avid lore master.

Koei Tecmo adds:

Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers unfolds during the chaotic end days of the Han dynasty, when ancient China was overwhelmed by uprisings and internal strife within its imperial court. The story follows renowned warrior Zhao Yun and his close friend Lei Bin, who unwittingly liberate a young girl, Lixia, from a mystical prison. The two friends and the mysterious Lixia then find themselves entangled in a pivotal struggle for the salvation of the world, wherein they must navigate the maelstrom that is Three Kingdoms era China, meet countless great warriors and take part in historic battles. In their efforts to unravel the mystery behind Lixia’s imprisonment, Zhao Yun and Lei Bin uncover a hidden, terrible fate, forcing them to make difficult decisions in a battle that will echo throughout history.

Godseekers was released in Japan for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita as Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden. Koei Tecmo didn’t mention a PS3 version in their press release today.
