TGS '07: Koei founds show-floor Dynasty
Dynasty Warriors 6 publisher brings war games and family fare alike to its TGS 2007 booth.
TOKYO--It's a testament to the popularity of Koei's long-running Dynasty Warriors series that the upcoming Dynasty Warriors 6 (known as Shin Sangokumusou 5 here in Japan) was one of the most trafficked games on the first public day of the 2007 Tokyo Game Show. The game was playable here for the first time on both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, though it probably wasn't surprising that the PS3 version of the game was getting far more interest from the Japanese fans.
The two-level Koei booth was home to a host of game fans playing titles ranging from DS fare such as the cute Gabu Gabu Planet to the more serious action/tactics game Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War. The lower level of the booth also featured two Wii games: the family-friendly RPG Opoona, the combat-heavy Samurai Warriors: Katana, and the horse racing game, GI Jockey 4 2007. The upper level of the booth featured a number of the PC-only online Koei adventures games, including Dynasty Warriors BB.
