Tecmo Koei has announced today that Dynasty Warriors Next will be released across Europe on February 22nd 2012, which also happens to be PS Vita launch day.
The popular series certainly takes a Vita twist in its next game, adding a fusion of button controls with touch controls, which make use of the multi-touch screen and rear touch panel sensor. The game also allows you touch or shake the Vita to use the new “Speed Musou” and hit your enemies with powerful moves.
In addition, the game is boasting of impressive visual effects and communication enhanced by local play, while also including GPS-related positioning to enjoy continuous social interaction.
The game will also use PlayStation Vita’s Live Area for the game’s new “Conquest Mode”(supporting WiFi and 3G) and the new 4 player ad-hoc multi-player “Coallition Mode.”
Finally mentioned is that Dynasty Warriors Next has 65 playable characters and an edit mode, making this a pretty comprehensive package for a launch title.
