Tecmo Koei has now officially announced the release date for the newest title in the Dynasty Warriors franchise, dubbed Dynasty Warriors NEXT, which will be released on the PlayStation Vita.
NEXT will be fully optimized for the Vita taking advantage of the handheld's multiple touch pads and motion sensor controls. By using the Vita's Live Area, players will be able to take part in 'Conquest Mode' and the new 'Coallition Mode' which allows up to four players. 'Edit Mode' has also returned this time around allowing players to customize their very own Chinese warrior.
Tecmo Koei has previously said it would release close to the Vita's launch, but they've now declared that it will be a launch title. This means it will release on the 22nd of February in Europe, alongside Sony's new handheld.
