Tecmo Koei announced that a new version of Dynasty Warriors is on the way for Sony's new handheld, the PlayStation Vita, as a launch title in the European territories. The newest version of the game will make use of the Vita's handheld power and dual-analog controls, enabling gamers to play Dynasty Warriors the way it was always meant to be played while on the go.
As stated in the press release...
DYNASTY WARRIORS NEXT, the brand new instalment built for the PS VITA, will allow players to use PS VITA’s breakthrough touch pad, rear touch pad and motion sensor for intuitive controls to fight their battles, as well as connect with others and enjoy an epic experience.
Many modes from the latest console rendition of Dynasty Warriors will also make an appearance in DWN, such as being able to edit or customize your very own warrior, and play online with friends in the cooperative modes. What's more is that the game sports intuitive not intrusive touch-screen controls, allowing gamers to quickly issue commands or capture bases without ever losing a beat (or a KO combo) during the fast and furious action. For the most part, Omega Force seems to have ported the game over to handhelds and aimed only to make improvements on the port.
