Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends includes Legend Mode where players can replay battles from previous Dynasty Warriors games with commanders from Dynasty Warriors 7 like the Wei and a challenge mode with online leaderboards. Have the original game? You can use Mixjoy mode to play a remixed version of Dynasty Warriors 7’s story and conquest mode. Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends has Japanese voice acting on-disc and three new Wei kingdom warriors.

    Man, why do the games always dash, fly, jump, climb, teleport etc. to the stores instead right into my room?!

    That said beautiful Wang Yi is beautiful, I love the character designs in DW~!☆

    • Ben Tan

      she actually looks realistic compared to some of the rest ( bao sanniang)

  • Haven’t played one since DW4. Might give this a try. Still has split-screen coop I assume??

    • If I was you go find DW7 and play it since you are missing the changes they did in the game. But so can’t wait to empty my wallet again this november since I barely paid all my stuff off for september

      • Buh? My question was about split-screen. Is it in or not?

        Now why would I want to get DW7 instead of Legends? Isn’t this an upgrade?

        • Exkaiser

          If it’s anything like DW4 Xtreme Legends (the only DW game I own), and if I’m reading the article right, this version of the game won’t include the story or conquest modes of the original DW7. It’s like an expansion pack, except you can play it standalone and only get the new content.

          • Guest

            It has hero scenario which is basically the story mode but focusing more on characters than kingdoms. Same seamless cutscene to action. Also has Legend scenario which allows you to play past stage maps that had been remade for this game

          • jokingbird

            I thought that the mixjoy mode meant you needed the DW7 disc for everytime you go to play the story mode:

            MixjoyMixjoy is done by swapping with the DW7 disc back and forth. As with all previous XLs, Mixjoy needs to be done every time the game is restartedMixjoy is required in order to play Story and Chronicle modesStory and Chronicle mode will be playable using any characters and co-opOf course, DW7XL’s new elements will be reflected in the DW7 content (such as Guo Jia getting unique)The amount of money acquired, Weapons that are acquirable etc. will be adjusted based on the currently selected difficulty level

          • bah you lost me already. guess Koei won’t get my money for this one.

      • Guest

        Why would you tell him to get that game when this one is under 3 months away?

  • Guest

    I would say they’re pulling a Capcom (hello UMvsC3/SSFVAE) but this is nothing new from Koei

    • Exkaiser

      They’re pulling a Game Industry.

      • How could they?! These damn bastards and their stupid baseless idea that we want games! Updated games! Let’s start a revolt!

        • Guest

          This game basically renders DW7 useless in under 7 months. Same as MvsC3 to UMvsC3 basically.

          Edit: well ok maybe not as bad but this seems like it should be DLC maybe…

          • No. if you follow the dynasty warriors series, look at 3,4,5 for ps2, koei always made an xtreme legends game after the original. The original 3,4,5 had the story mode in the it. The XL 3,4,5 do NOT have story mode, but only the upgrade weapons such as 5th weapon in DW 3XL for example, the legends mode, and for DW 5 XL, character balancing, destiny mode(which was enjoyable for me). Koei made it so the original game is still needed for the full experience and that it is NOT obsolete. 

          • Zal_Yagun

            not really… XL Mixjoy feature allows Free and Co-op to regular 7 and updates the game to have the new elements from XL, It’s more of an expansion back that comes on a separate disc that has enough content you could play standalone.

            UMvC3 will outright replace MvC3 because unlike other games where large content and balance update are provided via DLC or patches. Capcom likes to Release a new game entirely for some reason, making their old games disposable..

    • They’ve been doing out XL and Empires since DW3. Complaining about it now wouldn’t change anything

  • SerendipityX

    Never played an actual DW game before so I guess this would be a good one to start with.

  • Wow IDK why, but I never realized they were all Wei until I just read that… I hate Wei. Still glad some new characters were added though.

  • Zal_Yagun

    Hopefully Its another delayed announcement for the xbox 360 version, I would be really depressed if XL was just a PS3 exclusive.

  • Calling it now, they’re going to have Wang Yi fall in love with Ma Chao.

    • But she has a nasty grudge against Ma Chao. He killed her husband. Koei will probably make her have some kind of relationship with Pang De since they both join Wei against Ma Chao and Ma Dai of Shu.

      • Ben Tan

        they kinda look good together too

      • That may be true… I can see them making her fall in love with either of them. Though that makes me wonder. How will she react when Pang De dies? I hope she isn’t the crying type but instead demands that she be allowed to avenge him.

  • Mister_Nep

    My rule for Dynasty Warriors is every 3 DW games. I last played 4 so it was time to pick up another Dynasty Warriors. I was waiting for a price drop, but nevermind. I’ll just pick up this version.

  • Kunio_kun

    Still no story/unique character model for Yuan Shu?

  • WonderSteve

    So..eh…stupid question here

    The XL version will have everything the original version included on the disc? Or is it simply an expansion disc?

    I am thinking of getting DW7, but I will for XL if it has everything.

    • Ben Tan

      just an expansion

    • expansion. for the story mode you will need the DW7 disc.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Kicking ass and posing for the camera since 1997.

  • Göran Isacson

    I do wonder what it is about Dynasty Warriors that just… has me unable to comment. I played it once a very long time ago, game number 4, and while it consumed a lot of time and felt oddly satisfying at the moment… I really can’t remember much of it. I really have no opinion, it was just kind of there. It took old-school beat-em-up, mixed it with level grinding, and produced something that I could just sink hours into… even if I can’t say why! Strange, strange game, this one.

  • Hopefully by DW8 they give is Yuan Shu and Wen Yang. I was very saddened Yuan Shu was ignored and all of Wen Yangs accomplishments were made less epic than they were. In the Novel Wen Yang was heavily outnumbered when he fought Sima Shi and caused his death, in DW7 they had Sima Shi’s forces outnumbere and Wen Yang wasen’t scarey at all.

  • I wait for the PC version … or maybe Wii U port
