These new screens from the PlayStation Vita's Dynasty Warriors Next shed a little more light on the game's Duel mode, along with the depth provided by the character creator.

There have been about a billion Dynasty Warriors titles in the past, and Tecmo Koei isn't about to pass up the debut of a new handheld without releasing another one. Enter Dynasty Warriors Next, which incorporates the Vita's touchscreen in a number of ways.

The most significant change for the series comes in the new Duel mode, which is activated when fighting certain enemies. This shifts the view to an over-the-shoulder perspective, allowing you to use touch controls to defend and attack your foe.

You can also change the appearance of your character, and based on the screens below, there seem to be plenty of options – including impossibly spiky hair. Good to see things haven't changed too much.

Dynasty Warriors Next will be available on February 22 on the PlayStation Vita.
