Koei should stop using launchers that don't read window resolution life system.

That's the least of my worries. More worried about how the re-vamp will turn out. The last time Koei did a re-vamp of DW (Dynasty Warriors 6) it didn't work out so well.

Dynasty Warriors has always had local multiplayer on PC ever since Dynasty Warriors 4, its first PC release. I still have fond memories of playing with DW games with friends. Some people have been clamoring for online multiplayer but it's never happened in the mainline series. But the Dynasty Warriors MMO is still active with updates. There used to be an EU/NA server but that shut down after the community collapsed. The JP, TW, KR, and CN servers are all still available since the series (and its source material) is much more popular there.

IMO KOEI need to upgrade their game engine, while game effects is good, flashy
however the graphics show its age comparing to other hack n slash game
