Film adapts KOEI Tecmo's hack-and-slash game series based on classic Chinese novel

The staff of the Chinese live-action film adaptation of KOEI Tecmo Games' Dynasty Warriors/Shin Sangoku Musō game franchise unveiled a trailer for the film. The video reveals the film's 2019 release window.

The Hong Kong company China 3D is producing the project. The film was originally slated for a 2018 release in China. Roy Hin Yeung Chow (Murderer, Nightfall, Rise of the Legend) is directing, and his wife Christine To Chi-Long (Murderer, Nightfall, Rise of the Legend) is writing.

The games bring The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Luo Guanzhong's classic novel about a wartorn era in Chinese history, to the hack-and-slash genre. KOEI released the first Sangoku Musō (Dynasty Warriors) game in 1997 for the PlayStation as a spinoff of its Romance of the Three Kingdoms strategy game franchise. Dynasty Warriors 9, the latest game in the series, shipped in Japan on February 8, and in the West on February 13. The series has also inspired numerous spinoffs (including the Samurai Warriors series).
