Several hundred years ago, Chinese writer Luo Guanzhong penned The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. In 1997, Japanese company KOEI released their first Dynasty Warriors video game for Playstation, based on the book. The video game was also a spinoff to KOEI’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms strategy game franchise. In 2021, a movie based on the video game based on the book is coming out thanks to Hong Kong company China 3D.
While the trailer is in Chinese, being fluent isn’t necessary to experience its intensity.
The movie hits theaters in Hong Kong on April 29, and then will reach Mainland China on April 30.
The Dynasty Warriors 9 video game came out three years ago.
