Today Koei Tecmo revealed three new generals that will appear in the new open-world Musou game Dynasty Warriors 9.
The three characters are Sun Ce, Ma Chao and Jia Chong, and you can read their descriptions below in case you’re not familiar with the franchise or with them in particular.
As the eldest son of Sun Jian, he made a name for himself as “The Little Conqueror” for the way he lit with enjoyment in the midst of a fight. A brave and energetic leader, he viewed all people equally regardless of rank or position. Due to this free-spirited nature, many capable men gathered around him and along with his childhood friend, Zhou Yu, he laid the foundation for the Wu kingdom.
As the eldest son of Ma Teng, the leader of Xiliang, he became a passionate and emotional young warrior. He had an honest personality and an exceptional ability to act. These traits created a warrior who wielded his spear for anything he believed without a single doubt in his mind. After displaying his skills in countless battles, he earned the nickname “The Glorious Ma Chao”.
As the son of Jia Kui of Wei, he grew to be a notable officer and a powerful politician. Seeing his skills, Sima Yi placed him on his side as a confidant along with Sima Shi and Sima Zhao.
