There was a time when Tecmo Koei’s games didn’t head west en masse every chance they got. That time has passed.


Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires, the latest spin-off in the sprawling Warriors or Musou franchise, is coming west in early 2015 for PlayStation 3, PS4 and Xbox One.

Tecmo Koei announced the news on its Facebook page, releasing a small batch of screenshots.

The Empires series takes the core battlefield action of Dynasty Warriors and embeds it in a strategic meta game. Players can create a new character or take control of an existing one, and fight through random or pre-determined scenarios for control of Three Kingdoms-era China.

You can marry Zhuge Liang, if that’s your bag, and it should be.
