Do not pursue Lu Bu, live his life in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends. Tecmo Koei added a new story mode that focuses on the mighty warlord. Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends also has what if episodes with alternate scenarios like what if Yuan Shao defeated Cao Cao in the Battle of Guandu.

    “Can KOEI provide me with a decent Lu Bu story!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    • Masa


      Agree! Btw, did you by any chance play Dynasty Tactics 2?

      That had a great Lu BU story.

    Finally Lu Bu as the winner of 3 Kingdoms era.
    As final stage, Lu Bu needs to surrounded by 5 Shu Tiger General(and Liu Bei), 5 Wei General(and Cao Cao) and Sun Families(and its general)

      No problem for the mighty Lu Bu and his daughter.

      But Zhang Liao is one of the Five Wei Generals, so does he defect in this alternate route?

      • Sardorim

        Zhang Liao only defects after Lu Bu is fully defeated and is sent to be executed. Unless he believes Lu Bu is dead he wont have any reason to defect. Since this is Lu Bu Time I doubt he’ll be defeated outside historical/novel ending so for Hypothetical Zhang Liao should remain under Lu Bu.

    • Dark Zerato

      In the novel, Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei nearly defeat Lu Bu in a duel. Liu Bei lets him go. So, I don’t think he can handle that much.

  • Sardorim

    Really hope Zhang Liao is playable in Lu Bu Time.

    Why pursue Lu Bu when you can be Lu Bu?

  • leingod

    Man, hope this gets localized. I could seriously use some more DW on the go.

    DW Next had a Lu Bu scenario, but it was pretty short.

  • Sesshomaru

    Is the west getting this? And for that matter are we going to get the ton of DLC for 8 ever?

    • Masa

      I cant see any more dlc happening, not sure if you noticed but we seem to be getting less from KOEI over the last few years, we didn’t even get that huge patch for DW7E which added lots of new features….only Japan. :(
