Chinese Dynasty Warriors Live-Action Film Comes to Netflix U.S. on July 1

posted on by Adriana Hazra
Film opened in Hong Kong, Mainland China in April

Netflix U.S. announced on Wednesday that it will add the Chinese live-action film of Koei Tecmo Games' Dynasty Warriors/Shin Sangoku Musō game franchise on July 1.

The film opened in Mainland China on April 30. The film opened in Hong Kong on April 29.

The Hong Kong company China 3D produced the project. The film was originally slated for a 2018 release in China. The film was then scheduled to open in 2019 before another delay. Roy Hin Yeung Chow (Murderer, Nightfall, Rise of the Legend) directed, and his wife Christine To Chi-Long (Murderer, Nightfall, Rise of the Legend) wrote the screenplay.

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 (Shin Sangoku Musō 8), the latest game in the series, launched in Japan and the West in February 2018. The series has also inspired numerous spinoffs (including the Samurai Warriors series).
