TGS: KOEI Announces New Titles

At the Tokyo Game Show today, KOEI revealed new details on the company’s upcoming portable exclusives. These latest offerings are designed to create communities for gamers, centered on fun and engaging multi-player experiences.

"KOEI is taking new steps, in new directions, to bring the world together through entertainment," said Kenji Matsubara, president and COO of KOEI, Co., Ltd.

Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce is a game unlike any other in the franchise. Until now, the quintessential Dynasty Warriors experience pitted a lone warrior against thousands of enemies. For the first time, up to four friends can join together to form a "Strikeforce". Working as a team, players can plan coordinated assaults to conquer massive armed fortresses and colossal beasts.

While immense castles, towers and ships serve as the settings for these legendary quests, the lighting-fast action will go where it has never gone before- the skies above. Gifted with new supernatural abilities characters can streak across the skies and battle enemies at high-altitude.

With both single-player and multi-player quests, new "air" fighting techniques, radical character customization, new challenges to conquer, and downloadable content, Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce will forever change the way gamers experience the Dynasty Warriors universe when it comes to North America and Europe in 2009.

Developed by KOEI’s Omega Force, Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce is exclusive to the PSP (PlayStation Portable).

Set in a world very similar to our own, Monster Racers will take players on a journey where they will build lasting friendships with new allies and encounter daunting challenges from a bevy of rival racers. The fun begins on Star Island, the official home of Monster Racing. From there, players will embark on a quest that will take them around the globe in search of monster breeds to train, nurture and race.

Players can choose to be either one of two characters at the start of their adventure. As players progress, they’ll explore different regions, race wild monsters in their native habitats, and see how their relationships develop with the game’s heroes and villains.

Monster Racers utilizes side-scrolling platform-style action to create a racing experience that everyone can easily learn and enjoy. For first time in the genre, challenges will use the player’s skill in controlling speed and reaction time, in fun and familiar settings. Throughout each race, players will gather power-up items while avoiding obstacles such as "icicles", or "meteors". With a wide variety of courses and monsters, players can choose which monster is best suited for each race.

Up to four friends can compete in race tournaments. "Monster Racers will feature Wireless DS Single-Card Download Play and Wireless Multi-Card Play. Players can also download courses and share their race times via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection," said Hisashi Koinuma, KOEI’s producer for Monster Racers.

Developed by KOEI Co., Ltd. Monster Racers comes to North America and Europe in 2009.

KOEI also announced another new entry in its hugely successful Dynasty Warriors series. Combining the most exciting aspects of Action, Fighting and Strategy games, Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION®3 will make its North American and European debuts in 2009. This title is not yet concept approved by Microsoft.
