Tecmo Koei will be keeping with its usual Dynasty Warriors release schedule and releasing an "Empires" version of Dynasty Warriors 7. Famitsu has a first look this week at Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires (or, as it's properly known in Japanese, Shin Sangoku Musou 6 Empires).
According to Famitsu early getter Sinobi, the Empires version will add Xu Shu to the game. This is all the info Sinobi provides, but we'll likely get a closer look along with first screens later in the week.
While Famitsu's look at Empires is exclusively for the PS3, this is likely because DW7 was PS3-exclusive in Japan. It's possible that worldwide releases of Empires will include both PS3 and Xbox 360.
