Dynasty Warriors is now on Spotify. Not the games – the soundtracks. Yes all. Most of time.
When you think of massive game franchises, you probably picture Mario, Final Fantasy, Madden, and Call of Duty. Dynasty Warriors probably isn’t high on the list, but it should be. The franchise already includes up to nine core entries. When you add expansions, spin-offs, and crossover titles, the whole thing measures and counts well over 30 titles.
Each of these games has its own soundtrack. If you add them all up, that’s roughly 700 songs, and they’re all on Spotify for your listening pleasure now.
For those who haven’t played Dynasty Warriors before, the vast majority of these songs are dominated by hard, driving guitar riffs, occasionally sprinkled with oriental flutes. This makes sense when you are actually playing the game as there is no better background to slicing your way through hundreds, sometimes thousands, of enemy soldiers than good old hard rock.
The soundtracks range from the original Dynasty Warriors to Dynasty Warriors 9, as well as the Empires and Xtreme Legends expansions, and some spin-offs like Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce and Dynasty Warriors Online. The warriors Orochi and Samurai Warriors are not part of this Spotify channel. Perhaps Koei Tecmo plans to add this as a separate entry.
If you want something great for your morning jog or afternoon workout, you can do worse than Dynasty Warriors. However, we recommend that you stick to the later titles. The original Dynasty Warriors were released on PlayStation 1 back in 1997, and the recording techniques weren’t quite as accurate as they are today.
Dynasty Warriors is celebrating its 20th anniversary, which is strange considering the first game came out in 1997. Regardless of how old Dynasty Warriors really is, serial producer Akihiro Suzuki recently said they would make a second jump on Dynasty Warriors 9 after the game that first flopped both domestically and abroad. There could also be a Dynasty Warriors 10 soon.
