Dynasty Warriors 9 is making a big splash at the Tokyo Game Show 2017, and the latest musou title by Omega Force looks to have some heavy improvements to the hack-and-slash formula. Players no longer have to look at screens to see this, though, as a batch of gameplay videos have started to hit the web. Dynasty Warriors 9 is set to release early 2018 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Check out the two Dynasty Warriors 9 gameplay videos below:

We also have more information about the State Combo system and other mechanics thanks to a Famitsu translation:

The commonly known ‘mash □ button to simply attack’ method in Dynasty Warriors games is still returning in Dynasty Warriors 9. What made past games very repetitive in the past was that the □ attack would have the same attack string all the time. However, Dynasty Warriors 9 will have a new Flow Attack system, where the □ attack string will change depending on whether and which Trigger Attack has been used before the attack button is pressed.

For example, when the character uses a Trigger Attack that juggles enemies, the Flow Attack string will eventually connect to aerial attacks to follow the juggled enemies, instead of staying on the ground all the time. Famitsu also made a blurb that the simple method of combining □ with △ button for attack combos are still being kept intact.

Dynasty Warriors 9 will release in early 2018 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
