KOEI Temco's DYNASTY WARRIORS Is Getting A Live-Action Feature Film

KOEI Temco
You have to give it up to video games! They almost always find a way to other mediums and if we're fortunate enough, those transitions will be done correctly for them to continue. This is a wish now setting in stone for some among many who are longstanding fans of Omega Force's KOEI Temco game franchise, Dynasty Warriors/Shin Sangokumusou.

The franchise in its current standing has spawned well over 60 games, all preset by its origins rooted in PC game lore of the 1980's with the seperate turn-based war strategy game series, "Romance Of The Three Kingdoms" - adapted from Luo Guanzhong's 14th century novel set near the turbulent end of the Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms period. The Dynasty Warriors franchise launched its first title as a fighting game installment for Playstation in 1997, while the rest of the games, including spin-offs like Samurai Warriors, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, One Piece: Pirate WarriorsHyrule Warriors and one of the more recent titles, manga-based title from last month circa October, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend, were all released as third-person adventure games.

The main game franchise itself has over eighty several characters you can play with. I've only touched a certain number of games in my time so I probably can't tell you about how each *could* be woven along with the necessary elements into a coherent and cohesive film story, although that task is now in the hands of Hong Kong-based China 3D who are now developing the live-action feature for a 2018 date.

Casting and plot info are nil at the moment as the news is just breaking in the past day or so, although some opinions circulating the web suggest the film will be off set by its most recent title, Dynasty Warriors 8. At any rate, Dynasty Warriors/Shin Sangokumusou sounds like an adaptation that's been a long time coming - much like the Soul Caliber series and who knows when that will ever take shape? Tell us what you think in the comments below and stay tuned for more info on the Dynasty Warriors movie!
