With Star Wars all the rage right now, another potential contender has emerged for a game set in that universe. When Dynasty Warriors producer Akihiro Suzuki was asked what existing franchise he would like to make a Dynasty Warriors Musou crossover game with, he replied that Star Wars would be his ideal world to adapt to.
A Star Wars x Dynasty Warriors crossover game
Developer Omega Force has talked about future franchise crossovers. In an interview with JP GamesSuzuki explained how “a lot of different IPs and works have already been put forward” and what “my own personal wish would be for a Star Wars crossover”. The team has already made Musou games in the Zelda, Dragon Quest, One Piece, Fire Emblem and Persona franchises, but a sci-fi setting would present a new challenge for the team.
There are plenty of Star Wars games in development right now. Quantic Dream is developing Star Wars Eclipse, Aspyr is remaking Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, an open world Star Wars game is in development at Ubisoft Massive, and Respawn is in charge of three different Star Wars games, including a new title in the Star Wars Jedi franchise. There’s also LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga for a more comedic take on the universe. A Star Wars Musou title would definitely be a different type of game from the games already in development.
Meanwhile, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires comes out on February 15 for PS4 and PS5. Combining hack ‘n’ slash action with strategy, players embark on a new conquest to conquer ancient China. Those who want to try it before buying can download the free demo now from the PlayStation Store.
In other news, Dying Light 2’s day one patch contained over 1000 bug fixes and gameplay improvements across all platforms. Elsewhere, Rockstar has confirmed that they are developing a brand new Grand Theft Auto game, but they haven’t stated whether it will actually be called GTA VI.
