While we have to admit the name ca...

The awkwardly (but aptly) titled Dynasty Warriors: Gundam is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 later this summer, and Namco Bandai has released a plethora of new screens and artwork for the title. Developed by Koei's Team: Omega Force, the creators of the original Dynasty Warriors series, the game has pl...

It is scheduled to come out towards the end of summer on both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 platforms. The game sold well in Japan, but not up to N...

Yoshihiro Kishimoto, producer of Dynasty Warriors DS: Fighters Battle, conducted an interview recently with Pocket Gamer. He describes the challenges in fitting the game onto the DS, and talks about the decision to go with buttons rather than make use of the stylus. We think carving through hordes ...

Well, this video is better than the screenshots, at least, but are we alone in seeing that seizure-inducing ripple effect? At least it mostly fades once you get off the wooden flooring and out onto the grass and dirt. But maybe Dynasty Warriors DS is right up your alley. Watch the video, judge for y...

Our reasoning behind Kiyoshi Komatsu's resignation is pretty simple: he was tired of doing the same thing over and over and over and over, but the rest of Koei disagreed. They alienated him at work, egged his car, stole his milk money and whatever else people can do to be good old-fashioned jerks. S...

Gundam Musou, thank Koei, looks nothing like Gundam: Crossfire. And the other differences between Musou and last year's ugliest new-gen duckling aren't merely superficial ones -- Koei's game appears to have some depth, more gameplay modes, and... did we mention that it's not butt-ugly? To help you ...

Happy News about Games Related to the Romance of the Three Kingdoms Day! So far, it's been a solemn event that we've observed respectfully, thinking about how ugly DS games affect us all. But we've got marginally better news for you, so don't take down your traditional NGRRTK Day decorations. Hori ...

Koei, ever the masters of careful, deliberate game design, have been judicious with their Shin Sangoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors) series, taking care not to saturate the market with incrementally-upgraded sequels and spinoffs, and sequels of spinoffs, that serve only to extract as much cash as possibl...

Two of Koei's most notable PS3 games (particularly notable for not being Dynasty Warriors) have been delayed in Europe until Summer 2007. The developer has opted to miss out on the Euro PS3 launch, instead spending some more time on polishing futuristic racer, Fatal Inertia, and non-futuristic hack...

With the confirmation that Koei's Samurai Warriors spin-off is heading to the North American Wii, we have to wonder how many sword-fighting games we'll be able to handle in the long run before seppuku becomes an attractive alternative. Sengoku Musou Wave will be redubbed Samurai Slash in the West, a...

The good folks at IGN have compiled a fantastic list of games that support ad-hoc (local) wireless and infrastructure wireless. It's been slow to start, but more and more games have been adding support for internet play and downloadable levels, and they should be commended. The games that use Infra...

After a two-year absence from consoles, you may have thought that Korean publisher Koei had forgotten about its fledgling Samurai Warriors series. Not a chance, tomodachi! It's just too easy for developer Omega Force to feast on the considerable assets of the Dynasty Warriors, Xtreme Legends, and E...

Developer Blue Side has gracefully decided to share some early and undeniably striking concept art for their forthcoming Xbox 360 sequel, Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom. Though the Kingdom Under Fire series failed to set retail charts on fire during its run on the original Xbox, vocal fans won'...

How disappointing. Since Tetsuya Mizuguchi has been responsible for so many great games, including Sega Rally, Space Channel 5 and Lumines, we've decided to forgive him for his involvement in the Phantagram developed Ninety-Nine Nights. It's not that the game is incredibly bad, only that it's overly...

When first glancing at screenies of Koei's historical hack-and-slash title Samurai Warriors: State of War, it's easy to see the resemblance with their other historical hack-and-slash game, Dynasty Warriors. Although that would probably be due to the fact that it's essentially the same game, only rev...
