Never been able to get into any of the other series besides Dynasty Warriors. And I have to say, number 8 has got me back loving the series as a whole

Don't forget Samurai Warriors 4! That will also be releasing on PS3, PS4 and Vita in fall. I never expected I'd have 3 Koei Warriors games on PS4 within a year of release.

Is this not the third time they are releasing this game? Looking forward to Samurai Warriors 4 though I do prefer the Dynasty Warriors games.
