It may have been ages since we last heard about the Dynasty Warriors movie, but it will soon become a reality. After getting confirmation of a release date last week, a brand new trailer for the video game adaptation was released by Distributor Enjoy China Entertainment yesterday and it looks exactly like what you’d expect from the series: pure schlock.
I mean that in the sincerest way, though. I couldn’t imagine Dynasty Warriors being anything other than pure cheese and over-the-top zaniness. If Lu Bu wasn’t featured destroying thousands of soldiers in a single blow, then what would be the point? That he’s being played by legendary Hong Kong actor Louis Koo is just icing on the cake. I can’t wait to see his legendary duel with Guan Yu come to life.
As a reminder from the last update, Dynasty Warriors will be releasing in Hong Kong on April 29, 2021. A general Chinese release will then happen a day later for the rest of the country. I’m not sure if this will be some mega-blockbuster, but I absolutely want to see the finished result. There’s no word on a Western release, but Koei Tecmo (publisher of the series) would be wise to get a localization going.
