Dynasty Warriors 7 goes PS3 exclusive

After a long-running series of multi-platform games, Koei has announced that its new entry in the heralded Dynasty Warriors franchise will only make its way to the homes of PS3 owners. Xbox 360 and PC versions are not in the cards as the franchise is presented in stereoscopic 3D for the first time.

Dynasty Warriors began its 13-year run as an exclusive title for the original PlayStation, but every game since Dynasty Warriors 3 has been multi-platform. By bringing the seventh in the series of numbered games to PS3 only, it seems the series is going back to its roots.

The news was revealed at a media event in Tokyo, which is where Koei also confirmed the game would be fully rendered in stereoscopic 3D, a format that, from the console side, Sony has been the only one to embrace.

It may be an attempt to build new energy for a series that has become a bit... stale. You can only hack-and-slash so many ninjas before it starts to get tiring.

Dynasty Warriors 7 will be available in March 2011 in the US.

    @PlainLikeVanilla Clearly somebody is or they wouldn't keep making them, but I'm as flabbergasted as you are as to who's doing it. We should find out who it is and show up at their doors with pitchforks and torches. I'm sick of games like Okami flopping while dreck like this continues to sell.

    I think it says something when I can't even tell which game in the series that screen shot is from. Reeeaally excited to see glossy menus in 3D since that's the most exciting part of these game anyway.

    Putting Dynasty Warriors in 3D is like putting a fart in 3D.
  • PlainLikeVanilla - October 26, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    Who the hell still buys these games?
  • CancerMan - October 26, 2010 8:19 p.m.

    Oh no, my life suddenly lost all meaning.
  • SonicX_89 - October 26, 2010 8:14 p.m.

    Oh, what a loss. However will I manage?

    Sony needed more exclusive's good for them, tired of xbox getting all the ps2 exclusives that were suppose to go to ps3 like dead or alive 4, ace combat 6, etc.
