Dynasty Warriors 6 (Shin Sangoku Musou 5) is in development, but apart from the improved graphics and animations, not much more is known at this point.

Set in Ancient China during the 3rd century, Dynasty Warriors 6 immerses gamers in a truly cinematic kung-fu action experience. Celebrated characters have been completely re-imagined with new weapons and fighting techniques motion-captured from some of today’s leading stuntmen and women in Asia. Dynasty Warriors 6 will deliver the massive scale and realistic atmosphere that players have come to expect from the series, but will redefine the Dynasty Warriors' Tactical Action experience. With a new fighting system and entirely new actions and motions, players can string together fighting moves and experience gameplay that closely resembles the action of a kung-fu movie. These changes The new combo system, tentatively called the "Renbu" system, requires specific button presses to unleash a variety of dazzling moves that will mimic the fighting movements seen in a Chinese martial arts movies.

Dynasty Warriors 6 will debut on PS2 as a massive two-disc collection action-packed with the full cast of playable characters and pulse-pounding scenarios of the original release, plus platform-exclusive content including never-before-seen “Musou” mode stories, incredible new weapons, five additional stages and 10 new scenarios.

The system, uses a Combo Gauge, which as it fills up, increases the Combo Level, which in turn allows the character to unleash even more powerful attacks and moves. The objective of this "Renbu" system is to add more visual stimulation while providing a sense of control over the action on screen, while the version for PC version will be available simultaneously and exclusively through digital download.

Dynasty Warriors 6 will include realistic battlefields which expand the limits of where you can venture. Whether proceeding down poor unpaved roads, through forests, or simply jumping from a bridge into the water for safety, players can use the features of the land to their advantage during the course of battle. Our goal is to create more realistic and immersive battlefields from both a visual and aural perspective.

Developed from the ground up exclusively for next-generation platforms, the game’s proprietary engine delivers the most chaotic and challenging Tactical Action experience to date. Players can use the landscape to elude the thousands of soldiers swarming the battlefield. But as players move and attack, adaptable enemy A.I. devises offensive and defensive combat tactics, and can retaliate with packs of fierce hunting dogs and patrol boats. All of the explosive action comes to life in high definition, 60 frames per second (fps) graphics.

Based on the epic novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Dynasty Warriors 6 depicts the massive battles ignited by the fall of the Han Dynasty when three rebellious states moved to overthrow the Emperor of China.

Famous events of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms such as sieges and large scale ship battles, were previously shown only through event scenes. Now these exciting moments will be portrayed in real-time, with in-game action sequences. Players will not only see these events, but live them, thereby recreating the feeling of actually being on the battlefield in ancient China.

Dynasty Warriors 6 is currently available on Xbox 360 and PS3 in North American and Europe, and will launch on PS2 amd PC Nov. 18, 2008.
