The Dynasty Warriors series has been around for a long time and Koei Tecmo producer Akihiro Suzuki says that he was pleased to team up with Nintendo for Hyrule Warriors as he believes it has brought freshness to the series. Suzuki recently admitted that over the years they’ve seen a sales decline in the franchise which he says has been given a new breath of life with Hyrule Warriors.
The franchise has been going on for quite a while now. People are getting used to the whole package – the gameplay, the plotline and the atmospheric setting of the game. But we need to make sure we’re keeping the series as fresh as it can be for future instalments.
