Bandai Namco is going all in on Nintendo Switch, with the company launching the latest entries of its musou series on the hybrid console. Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires, Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada, and Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate are launching separately in Japan on November 9, with a release for the West still to be confirmed. The games will include all the downloadable content from their most recent versions for PS4, PSVita, Xbox One, and PC, although they are not expected to present any new features exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires features a huge cast of more than 82 characters, and it is the last ‘classic’ entry in the series, as the upcoming Dynasty Warriors 9 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC will be the first to feature an open world setting. Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada is a spin-off from the main series focused on the Sanada clan, and Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate is the latest crossover between both series originally released in 2014. Why the games have been available in other platforms for a few years, it’s surprising that Bandai Namco is still launching them on Nintendo Switch in full price.
