Video game developer Omega Force launched a teaser website on Monday that features the text "The most evil 'Musou' in history." The teaser website also features the numbers "6.13".
Koei Tecmo America had announced via press release on May 24 that it will "reveal an unannounced, top-secret title" at E3. The game is "currently in development by Omega Force." E3 will be held in Los Angeles from June 14-16.
Omega Force is a subsidiary of Koei Tecmo, and it develops Koei Tecmo's Musou (Warriors) series of games.
Koei released the first Sangoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors) game in 1997 for the PlayStation as a spinoff of its Romance of the Three Kingdoms strategy game franchise. Since then, Koei and Koei Tecmo have released seven more games in the main series, and numerous spinoffs (including the Samurai Warriors series).
Many of the spinoffs involve collaborations with other franchises, such as Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, One Piece Pirate Warriors, and Hyrule Warriors. Square Enix released the Dragon Quest Heroes spinoff last year. The Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (Arslan Senki x Musou) game, based on Hiromu Arakawa and Yoshiki Tanaka's The Heroic Legend of Arslan (Arslan Senki) manga, followed in Japan last October and in the West in February.
