Koei Tecmo has updated the official website for Dynasty Warriors 9 with information and models of returning officers Xu Zhu, Dian Wei, Ling Tong, Gan Ning, Guan Ping, and Dong Zhuo.
Get the details below.
Xu Zhu (voiced by Takahiro Yoshimizu)
A pure-hearted fighter. With a large frame and superior strength, he was often by Cao Cao’s side to protect him from harm.
Though normally even-tempered with a carefree personality, once on the battlefield, he fought with the fierceness of a tiger earning him the nickname Crazy Tiger.
Dian Wei (voiced by Kazuya Nakai)
A fierce and loyal warrior. Built like a giant with immense strength and an impressive physique, he often served as a bodyguard to Cao Cao. His fierce look and uncultured ways incited fear among many yet those he served know the man for his utmost loyalty.
Ling Tong (voiced by Taiki Matsuno)
The hard-to-hate cynic. A servant of Wu, he continued to serve even after his father Ling Cao was killed in a battle with Gan Ning, and despised him ever since. He continued to serve even after his father was killed in a battle with Gan Ning, and despises him as a foe since. Often viewed as sarcastic, his deep loyalty to his friends and family drove him in battle putting his name among the greatest warriors of Wu.
Gan Ning (voiced by Hiroaki Miura)
An open-hearted soul. Nicknamed “Gan Ning of the Bells” for the bells he wore on his clothing, he was short-tempered and quick to brawl but was well-trusted by his men. Discontent from the lack of trust he received from Liu Biao and Huang Zu, he defected to Wu where he fought in numerous battles, namely the Battle of Chibi.
Guan Ping (voiced by Ryouhei Nakao)
A warrior of the next generation. Originally the second son of Guan Ding of Hebei, he became the adopted son of Guan Yu after his father became impressed with Guan Yu in a fateful encounter. Earnest and true, he joined Liu Bei as a sign of respect to his adopted father wherein he became proficient in martial arts.
Dong Zhuo (voiced by Yukitoshi Hori)
A power-hungry malevolence. Previously serving as Prefect of Xiliang, he rose to power after being called to battle by He Jin against the Imperial Eunuchs. With the chaos of battle and the death of He Jin, he quickly took control of the court through the young Emperor. Using his adopted son, Lu Bu, he ruled with complete brutality through military might inducing fear among the people.
Dynasty Warriors 9 will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan. Platforms for North America and Europe have yet to be announced. A release window has yet to be announced for any region.
