Posted by Raphael Leynes October 01, 2020

Koei Tecmo dropped some big bombs at this year’s Tokyo Games 2020 including much-awaited  follow-ups to its established franchises, Atelier, Hyrule Warriors, and Dynasty Warriors. Koei Tecmo also threw in some new entries into the mobile gaming market with some new games for its Monster Rancher and First of the North Star franchises.

 

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy

Release: December 3

 

 

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy take place 3 years after the events of the first game where a more grown-up Ryza embarks on a brand new adventure. Ryza can now also  explore the environment in new ways as she can now swim and dive underwater as well as use magic ropes to get to hard to reach areas. Also, look for exciting cameos from previous characters on your way to deciphering the mysteries of the ruins near the royal capital!

Angelique Luminarise

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Release: 2021 in Japan

 

 

Angelique Luminarise is the newest entry in the visual novel romance simulator series, Angelique in over 18 years! As an otome game, the franchise was made with female gamers in mind with each of these dashing, mysterious, aloof, fun, and edgy dreamboats hoping to whisk you away from the monotony and anxiety of your dreary everyday life. 

 

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 7

Platform:  Nintendo Switch

Release: June 18 in Japan

 

 

Harukanaru Toki No Naka de 7 is another otome visual novel by developer Ruby Party and it tells the story of a seemingly normal high school who meets a mysterious man named Yukimura Sanda. At which point she gets roped into a story that involves the mystical spirits, otherworldly visitors, and the occult!

 

NIOH 2 Darkness In The Capital 

Platform: PC

Release:  October 15

 

 

Nioh 2 Darkness In The Capital is a new story DLC for the cult-hit slash-em-up that takes the series back to ancient Kyoto. The big development in 8-minute trailer above is the new claw weapon that lets players get up close and personal than ever before! Berserker Barrage!

 

Monster Rancher 2 

Platform: Nintendo Switch/ iOS/ Android

Release  September 17

 

Monster Rancher is back in our lives once again with Monster Rancher 2! Take a trip down memory lane as you collect and do battle with your favorite classic monsters! The game was an absolute classic in its time on the original Playstation with the ability to insert different CDs of any kind to unlock a new monster. No word yet on how the mechanic will translate to mobile or Nintendo Switch. It’s too bad too, I have a Ricky Martin CD saved up just for this specific situation.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack Bundle

Platform: PS4, Switch, PC

Release date: December 10 in Japan, Early 2021 international

 

 

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV: Diplomacy and Strategy is a big, meaty expansion pack that features a ton of additional content. These include the all-new campaign called “War Chronicles Mode”; new characteristics and tactics, new geographical advantages for each province, and the ability to trade with Eurasian countries such as Rome and India!

Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 Mobile

Platform: iOS, Android

Release: 2020

 

 

As the mobile port of the 2012 PS3 and Xbox 360 game, Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 Mobile will take its over-the-top musou style action to the palm of your hand. Expect to beat up bad guys by the boatload with intense action from your favorite First of the North Star characters!

 

Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires

Platform:  PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One Consoles, Nintendo Switch, and PC Steam

Release: Early 2021

 

 

Koei Tecmo also revealed a new teaser trailer for their bread and butter franchise Dynasty Warriors with Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires. Not much is known about the gameplay at the moment but if it’s anything like previous iterations then we know to expect insane action and crazy exaggerated moves. According to a report from PC Games N, Koei Tecmo players will also be able to create and customize their own officers and forge their own path as they rise up the ranks as a mighty leader or a despicable villain.

Dynasty Warriors Mobile

Platform: iOS, Android

Release 2020

 

 

Koei Tecmo also announced a Dynasty Warriors Mobile game! It has all the insane action of their flagship product but in your pocket! Players can register right now until October 5 to be able to play in the closed beta!

 

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Release:  November 20, 2020

 

 

Who would’ve thought that The Legend of Zelda and musou made such a perfect combination? We sure didn’t. Yet here we are with the sequel to the first Zelda musou game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, looking absolutely hype and pretty. This is also doubly exciting for Zelda fans because Age of Calamity is a prequel to the events of 2017’s stellar Breath of the Wild. Its events take place right before the world was ravaged by Calamity Ganon and as such expect to run into familiar characters, creatures and locales on the battlefield! We’re excited to see how the integration of the unique narrative and storytelling into the core musou gameplay pans out and hopefully, we get a story that’s one for the ages.
