The new Dynasty Warriors game is unleashed and off to a great start.
Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed – the new mobile game from Nexon, XPEC and Koei Tecmo – has reached two million downloads in its first five days on sale. One million of those downloads coming in a single day.
The game is the latest in the long-running action franchise that is much-maligned, but consistently popular. Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed tasks players with uniting three kingdoms by using and range of powerful weapons and, well, slaughtering hordes of enemies on the battlefield. Business as usual, then.
Akihiro Suzuki, executive officer of Koei Tecmo Games, said:
“The legendary characters, epic battles, and powerful melee weapons that players love from the Dynasty Warriors series have been transported to mobile devices in Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed. XPEC has captured the adrenaline-pumping spectacle of the console games, and that frenetic combat action is now available on the go.”
Lawrence Koh, general manager or developers Nexon M, added:
“Ever since the launch of Dynasty Warriors 2 back in 2000, players have been drawn to the series’ over-the-top action gameplay. Nexon is honored to bring the devastating combat of Dynasty Warriors to mobile devices and share the experience of becoming a legendary warrior with longtime fans and a brand new audience of players around the world.”
The game features a number of modes, including single player and co-op campaigns, real-time four player battles, and a boss mode. Like the recent Fire Emblem Heroes – another game built around the controversial Gacha F2P mechanic – the game has one eye on the series’ past and brings back 48 characters from earlier console titles. Returning heroes include fan favourites Lu Bu, Guan Yu, Xiahou Dun and Zhao Yun.
