We Thought Dynasty Warriors 8 Couldn’t Get Any Wackier And Then There’s This

6db8f71dThe last time we were talking about Dynasty Warriors 8 crossovers we mentioned there was a 7 Up costume in the game. No, seriously.


Wang Yuanji can get a special weapon and an Akikoloid-chan costume. Akikoloid is the Vocaloid for Lawson, a chain of Japanese convenience stores. These collaborations are so out there, they’re kind of amusing to see. Too bad we probably won’t get Akikoloid-chan and 7 Up costumes outside of Japan. Right now, Dynasty Warriors 8 has only been announced for Japan, but we think Tecmo Koei will localize it just like the other entries in the series.

  • Learii

    they have to they know how much ppl in the west love the series

  • Hraesvelgr

    I get that they’re businesses and their top priority is to make money, but I still can’t help but feel a bit sad about the increasing commercialization of video games. It does add a hint of realism in something like the Yakuza series, but having Axe deodorant, Mountain Dew and Doritos in Peace Walker is… a bit much.

      Are you claiming Cao Cao never took a break from military campaigns for some sugar syrup and carbonated water?

      • d19xx

    Wang Yuanji is one of the most beautiful character that Tecmo Koei ever created.

    • eilegz

      • Testsubject909

        She’s Tsundere in Dynasty Warriors 7 too… Or, she’s just Tsundere. Or Kuudere. Not sure.

  • Warboss Aohd

    wotz next? The Walking Dead Outfit fer Pang Tong?…….actually dat would be pretty metal.

  • akiko_sakuraba

    Getting it in my Japanese one when it comes~ Love going to Lawson~

  • ParaChomp

    I still don’t get the popularity of the Vocaoids outside of Japan. I know it’s a great program but it has little use with non-Asian languages and I don’t see how a solely a character design could get so much popularity. I hate this kind of DLC in general even if it is targeted towards the Japanese but who cares as long as the fans eat it up. Also, she looks more like Elesa from Pokemon than Vocaloid Akikoloid.
