Dynasty Warriors 9 will have 4K resolution / 30 frames per second and 1080p resolution / 60 frames per second modes on PlayStation 4 Pro, director Atsushi Miyauchi revealed during an interview with Gamer.com.tw.
Here are a few more details from the interview (via Google Translate – Chinese is not our strong suit):
- The PlayStation 4 version of Dynasty Warriors 8 was an improved port of the PlayStation 3 base version. But for Dynasty Warriors 9, the game is being developed for and tailored to PlayStation 4.
- The game engine has been completely revamped and practically tailored to Dynasty Warriors 9. Some existing resources will be also used, but improved upon.
- All 83 warlords that appeared up until Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends will appear in Dynasty Warriors 9. New warlords such as Cheng Pu and Zhou Cang will also appear, but they’re not announcing the number of new warlords being added. That number, however, does include new female characters. (Update: There will be over 90 playable characters, according to a separate interview.)
- There are no plans to include online multiplayer elements. (Update: They’re unable to implement local co-op as well.) This includes asynchronous online elements such as those featured in Nioh and Toukiden.
