Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires delayed one month in Japan

Koei Tecmo wants to further improve the game's quality.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires has been delayed from its planned September 25 Japanese release, and will now launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PlayStation 3 in Japan on October 23, Koei Tecmo announced.

The reason for the delay, Koei Tecmo said, is (you guessed it—or maybe you read the tagline) to further improve the game’s quality.
