    Febuary….that’s pretty quick.

    • Akimitsu

      Well, they already built the game’s engine with DW7, so that cuts out a lot of work.

      • Alfy Masamune

        have a feeling this game is gonna be a let down.

          How come? Story mode will be similar to DW7 (and with “what if’s”). Weapon Switch returning. More EX Weapons. Each character now has three musou to use. New (3) Elemental Weapon Types. Weapon Seals replaced with an improved one (not much info on this yet). 6 so far known new characters with all previous returning.

          I’m not sure how it can be with what’s known right now. Just curious if it’s just story mode this time or with another mode that has yet to be revealed; Either Free Mode is back or a similar Conquest Mode.

  • Hm… I already have DW7 and XL. I guess I’ll wait it out for discounts this time.

    I hope they do special edition for western side T.T

  • Tianyu Wei

  • Hinataharem

  • TheTimeMage

    waiting for DW 8 : Empires
