■ Characters

◆ Wei

Li Dan (voiced by Kousuke Toriumi)

Dynasty Warriors 9

A warrior who joined Cao Cao’s army from its birth, Li Dian had an easygoing personality and a clever mind. He was skilled in predicting the locations of enemy ambushes and traps, yet, due to his laid-back personality, he sometimes caused confusion among his peers.

◆ Wu

Lu Su (voiced by Taiten Kusunoki)

Dynasty Warriors 9

The second Chief Commander of Wu, Zhou Yu’s successor, and Lu Meng’s mentor. He sought to divide China into two territories even during a time when the restoration of the Han Dynasty was the ultimate goal for many.

◆ Shu

Huang Zhong (voiced by Yusuhiko Kawazu)

Dynasty Warriors 9

With an aim that never missed, Huang Zhong’s skills as an archer brought him a position as one Shu’s Five Tiger Generals. As he became older, he grew more active on the battlefield. Although he had a unique carefree spirit brought about by his age, he also had a rigidness from his years of experience as a warrior.

◆ Other

Zhurong (voiced by Chizu Yonemoto)

Dynasty Warriors 9

The wife of Meng Huo, Zhurong was a determined fighter who had the tendency to mother all those around her. Much like her namesake, a name she received after declaring herself as the descendant of the legendary god of fire, Zhurong, she was straightforward and aggressive but was also strongly supportive of her husband both in battle and in his duties as King.

Meng Huo (voiced by Yoshiyuki Kouno)

Dynasty Warriors 9

With his huge stature and exceptional strength, Meng Huo was both Nanzhong’s king and its greatest warrior. Generally acting on emotion rather than thought, his fierce looks hid an underlying love and fear of his wife.

■ System

◆ Open World

Encountering Powerful Enemies

While moving across the land, players may encounter bandits so powerful that they appear immune to the players’ attacks.

Dynasty Warriors 9

Defeating powerful enemies can result in earning more valuable items.

Dynasty Warriors 9

A black wolf appears. When confronted by powerful wild beasts, escaping may be the wisest option.

Dynasty Warriors 9

A rare blue-tinted tiger. Its mystical look is a sight to behold, but do not get too mesmerized by it – you may lose your life if you don’t pay attention to your surroundings.

Dynasty Warriors 9

A bear with white fur. A single hit from its mighty paws will inevitably result in major damage.
