Koei has announced that Dynasty Warriors 6, the latest instalment in the hugely popular series of titles, is to be released across Europe for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 7.

The game is set in Ancient China during the 3rd Century and is depicts massive battles ignited by the fall of the Han Dynasty when three rebellious states moved to overthrow the Emperor of China.

Developed from the ground up for next-gen platforms, Dynasty Warriors 6 promises to be the most chaotic and challenging tactical action experience to date. Thousands of soldiers will swarm each battlefield and adaptive AI will combat the player's tactical moves. All the action is also promised in high definition running at a silky smooth 60 frames per second.
