Koei Tecmo announced in its latest financials that one of the new console game IP it’s currently developing, with the aim for it to sell over 5 million copies, will now be releasing sometime after 2022. The latest financials from Koei Tecmo were published on October 26, and cover the second quarter of the ongoing Japanese fiscal year, ending with March 2021. In the document, page 15, Koei Tecmo explained the delay of this new IP.

Koei Tecmo mentions: “Reasons behind the delay: Taking advantage of the high performances of the new consoles. Giving our original title the appropriate level of quality for a game that aims to sell over 5 million copies.”

In other words, the delay will serve to make this new IP even better and perfectly geared towards next-gen. With this, Koei Tecmo also confirmed this new IP is specifically developed for PS5 and / or Xbox Series X.

Having a pop at the DS article, not you Op

When they say "specifically designed for..." Do they mean, they know which console it will release for but haven't announced it yet, or that it's specifically designed for a console that they haven't specifically decided on yet?

Anyway, i look forward to hearing more about this game in 2023

Hyper Dynasty Warlords 1 - very new game mechanics. Hack-and-slash video games based on the classic Chinese novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

They need to have better graphics and less reused assets. Nioh 2 while having a really good gameplay, and combat loop, the graphics, and the level design was so repetitive (and even had Nioh 1 levels in it lol).

We’ve had Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, Warriors Orochi. Next gen only? It’s inevitable...

Console Warriors

Cant wait to slay thousands of virtual Neo members with my max-level Ethomaz.

Nioh 3 or Ninja Gaiden is all I want.

However.... It's probably a new Warriors game, since Team Ninja didn't finish the dlcs for Nioh 2.

After Nioh/Nion 2, I'm excited to see what they have up their sleeve.

Well, Ni-Oh is a PS3-gen franchise, so...


Kidding, of course. (I don't know that anything of the Ni-Oh concept survived besides the hair...) But heck, what if they did it again and resurrected another graveyard project to be their AAA next-gen focus? Now may be your time, Project Progressive...

This seems incredibly ambitious. Age of Calamity is about to become KT's highest ever selling game and even that might not hit 5 million.

Yeah man, a lot of dev resources needed to get those high fidelity mental gymnastics in 4K 60fps. Imagine the ray-traced D’Ghost polls. 400Gb required to fit all of the TheLastWords full stops in.
I meant the 5 million copies of this title they’re expecting to sell. It’s in the op.

It's a brand new IP so it wont be any of their existing series.

Koei Tecmo are one of those publishers that usually manage the tricky job of pleasing both Japanese and Western audiences. 5 million is ambitious, but possible - I'll look forward to finding out more.
