New Warriors All-Stars Trailer Shows Off Dynasty Warriors and More Classic Tecmo Characters (VIDEO)
Warriors All-Stars is set for a Summer release on PC and PlayStation 4 and it is the perfect opportunity for Koei Tecmo fans to see some of their favourites once more in a new light. The publisher’s new game includes many fan favourites, including those from franchises such as Dynasty Warriors, Toukiden, Opoona, and more. Check out the latest trailer in the video below and see for yourself:
Here is the officially summary by Koei Tecmo:
Summoned from a diverse range of worlds and time periods to save a mysterious land at the brink of destruction, the champions of Warriors All-Stars find themselves in the middle of a clash for control. When a magical power source dries up after the king’s passing, princess Tamaki performs a ritual to summon saviors in times of dire need, but her power spirals out of control and scatters them across the domain. As the legend foretells that the land’s liberator will be crowned its new ruler, Tamaki sets out at once to seek the new arrivals and restore peace to the kingdom. However, so do her rivals Setsuna and Shiki – descendants of the royal family who also vie for the throne. Uncertain of their fate, the champions are split into three separate groups with no choice but to duke it out for dominance.
Within this volatile setting, the player must choose their allies carefully. By engaging in Key Battles and taking on Free Scenarios, players will gain access to their faction’s roster of warriors and craft a dream team. Character choices will affect the course and conclusion of the game, as their friendships are key to how the game’s story unfolds, which is further enhanced with the addition of the all-new Bond system. Relationships between characters can improve by fighting alongside one another and spending time together in the Barracks. The closer the Bond, the stronger the abilities unlocked to gain an upper hand on the battlefield.”
More character revelations are on the way, but to see some of our favourites like Princess Tamaki, Horo, and Lu Bu – it’s almost fun trying to pinpoint the eclectic array of characters on the roster. As far as the game itself, there is much to do in the world of All-Stars. Key Battles can be had on Free Scanarios that will allow players to see their clan roster and create the perfect team. Tecmo said the be careful who you choose, because whatever selection is made, that WILL impact the storyline and the ending.
The inclusion of the “Bond System” is also an intriguing implementation. This allows characters to develop relationships with one another, depending on the amount of time they spend together. Fans of games like Fire Emblem especially will appreciate this and adds yet another level of immersion to the gameplay.
Warriors All-Stars drops on PC and the PlayStation this Summer on August 29th. Will you be picking it up to see some of your favourite characters of Tecmo past?
