SW and DW are the same thing just with different characters. This game looks mor elke Kessen, I just have not seen the DW/SW aspect of it yet, except being one central general

Can we play as the Rulers?? Cos if we can then we can order other officer(which r playable) to do things for us...
and i kinda think the gameplay is half from Kessen and Quarter from SW and the other Quarter from DW....

I wonder if it will add in a DW:E kind of thing - recruiting soldiers/generals, and putting them in a certain place - such as cavalry on the flanks, infrantry blocks holding the centre, longbowmen just behind etc.

The action aspect of it, I guess, is controlled mainly through the strategy system. What I mean is that any action you make is actually group based now. While not something you often see in a playstation game, buttons dragging and such, like in the Sims, has been used before.
At first, it looked more troops based, with each set of troops in roughly three lines. It makes me wonder if that's not another aspect of the gameplay. It's sort of hard for me to comment about this being bad in an action game, though, considering I'm a Strategy/RPG freak.

Watch this video and check out the action in around the middle of the trailer.
Visuals aside, the game's strategy sounds intriguing. The concept here is to take the action of Dynasty Warriors and the strategy of Kessen and merge it in a real-time manner, with thousands of warriors across 50-60 types of rank and soldier type engaged in battle together.
Although it wasn't really presented in the trailer here, you do play as a central commander like in Dynasty Warriors. More realistically, however, gameplay is handled on the macro level, with the hundreds of characters that are selected by you (..)appearing with icons over their heads to show who you are controlling at a time.
*-Okay, it sounds straight foward Dynasty Warriors-ish. *-Now it sounds more like Kessen II.
There's a three-button assignment system, and though it's a strategy game, you can button-mash with your masses to have all of your figures battling and engaging and moving together for combos that count in the thousands
Sounds like a new version of Kessen III's fighting style. Perhaps we shouldn't get so excited and think of it as DW/SW in Europe, since it clearly states it's a strategy game. KOEI launched a strategy game for the PS2, Kessen I, maybe they're trying to do the same. I seriously hope it would had been Hack & Slash. Only time will tell. =\
