Koei Tecmo America has revealed new information on Dynasty Warriors 9 today, regarding new combat mechanics.

While the iconic “one versus thousands” style of gameplay will still be fully in tact, Dynasty Warrior 9 will give players even more opportunities to bring as much hurt to the table as possible with the State Combo System. The State Combo System will allow players to utilize three different kinds of attacks while they’re out on the battlefield — Trigger Attacks, Flow Attacks, and Finish Attacks.

Trigger Attacks will allow players to trigger the start of an explosive combo, and lead into Flow Attacks. Flow Attacks adapt to the current state of the enemy that they are fighting. If the player successfully pull off a combo, they can end things with a Finish Attack — a final, powerful blow that decimates all enemies in the player’s path.

Dynasty Warriors 9 is slated for release on the PlayStation 4. No release date is currently available, but it has been confirmed that the game will be releasing in the West. Are you looking forward to Dynasty Warriors 9? What are your thoughts on the State Combo System? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side (once you get to know him), Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of developers, consoles, and genres, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Donkey Kong Country 2, The Binding of Isaac, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.
