KOEI recently announced that Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires is headed to North America and will arrive in retailers on June 23. Until then, fans of the Dynasty Warriors franchise can pre-order the game on Amazon, GameFly, or GameStop -- according to KOEI.
Obviously, you'll be taken back to the hyper-fantasized world of Dynasty Warriors 6 where Chinese women of ancient lore run around in go-go boots and bright colors while their male counterparts... look equally ridiculous. Anyway, players become a lord and best their enemies in strategic combat. An easy-to-learn "card collecting" system lets you enact policies that will benefit your empire in any number of ways. The cards you receive rely on your officers' attributes.
You can also play as an officer, who suggests policies to the empire's war council, complete missions for rewards, or even betray your own kingdom on a whim. Die hard Dynasty Warrior fans will be pleased with the customization mode that lets you create your own warrior using an editing system that features gender, build, skin tone, facial features, voice, clothing, weapon, and other options.
The game supports up to two players; not surprisingly, there is still no online play, even with Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network at KOEI's disposal.
