The demo allows players to both siege an enemy castle and defend their own fortress, acting as a tutorial for some of the full game’s new mechanics. It’s also possible to create custom officers, which can be transferred to the release version of Empires.
This is the first time that Switch players will be able to try any version of Dynasty Warriors 9, as the original game never released on the platform. Based on our brief test of the Switch demo, it runs about as well as you’d expect — badly.
Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires launches for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC via Steam on February 15, 2022.
