Will it be a unique Musou Game?
Last year seems not really good for Koei Tecmo. Their Dynasty Warrior 9 and Warrior Orochi 4 have not been successful enough to captivate gamers around the world. In 2019, many fans may wonder about these Koei trademark games.
After translated by Gematsu, it reported that Koei Tecmo still eager to develop this genre, especially after they released the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 in last July.
Even more, they have prepared not only one, but 3 new Musou games at once through trademark registration, titled:
- Isekai Musou (Other World Warriors)
- Gakuen Musou (Academy Warriors)
- Tensei Musou (Reincarnation Warriors)
It seems Koei no longer wants to continue the Dynasty or Samurai Warriors series. In addition to 3 Musou games, Koei also registers 2 of their other trademark, the Musou Play, and Musou Mode.
Back to the 3 latest Musou games, there is no information about those games yet. But it seems that Isekai Warriors maybe a spinoff from Warriors Orochi with more mythological characters that haven’t been introduced yet.
For Gakuen Warriors, there is a chance that Koei Tecmo will adapt Fire Emblem: Three House or Legend of Heroes: Trails of the Cold Steel into Musou game format.
And for Tensei Warriors, is this the latest version of Warriors Strikeforce? Even Gematsu was sure this “Tensei” have no connection with any Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei series.
