Why no Dynasty Warriors 8 coverage?

You would think that a title that is getting released soon should at least be searchable on Gamespot. Dynasty Warriors 7 was just relased a few weeks earlier in Japan than it was in North America.

Dynasty Warriors 8 is being released in Japan next month so if they did anything like they did with the last installment we should be seeing it very soon yet there is little to no news on it on gamespot. Why is that?

Maybe because every single Dynasty Warriors game is a carbon copy of the last and thus doesn't really warrant that much coverage?

I think at this point very few people care about that franchise and it's overshadowed by other, more popular franchises that people have their attention on.

Do you honestly need coverage of the game? It will be similar to the previous main seven games plus the ten billion spin offs.

It's one of the biggest franchise in Asia, big enough for them to localize every iteration worldwide, has a dedicated following, and spawned around half-dozen spinoffs.

Seems like a waste of time covering it
