While Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires finally got a confirmed release date for Japan at TGS 2021, Koei Tecmo hadn’t announced anything for the West. Following this morning’s Best Buy listings for the physical release of the game on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox platforms spotted by @Wario64, Koei Tecmo America and Europe have both announced the official release date and physical editions for Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires. The game was originally set for release in early 2021 but was delayed. Watch the Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires English trailer below:
