By: John M Jerva

Netflix has announced that it has recently acquired the Chinese video game adaptation Dynasty Warriors and is planning on launching it on the service this July. The film has already made a triumphant debut in Hong Kong and China this past spring and now western audiences will get their turn watching it.

The games bring The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Luo Guanzhong’s classic novel about a wartorn era in Chinese history, to the hack-and-slash genre. KOEI released the first Sangoku Musō (Dynasty Warriors) game in 1997 for the Playstation as a spinoff of its Romance of the Three Kingdoms strategy game franchise.

Helmed by Hin Yeung Chow from a script penned by his wife Christine To Chi-Long, the film stars Louis Koo as Lu Bu, Kai Wang as Cao Cao, Ray Lui as Yuan Shao, Justin Cheung as Zhang Fei, Carina Lau as the Master of the Sword Forge Castle, and Tony Yo-ning Yang as Liu Bei.

The live-action Dynasty Warriors hails from the internationally popular video game series of the same name which was originally created by Omega Force and Koei

Dynasty Warriors will make its debut on Netflix starting on July 1st. Watch the international trailer below!
