Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends is slated for release in Japan this November, and Tecmo Koei have released a new trailer for the game, featuring the pre-order exclusive costumes they announced a few weeks ago.


Among the outfits is an Atelier Rorona costume for Wang Yuanji, a La Corda d’Oro costume for Xu Shu and a Toukiden costume for Zhao Yun.


Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends will be released for PlayStation 3 and Vita on November 28th. A PlayStation 4 release will follow on February 22nd, 2013.

  • Gekokujou

    I want that Rorona costume so badly.

  • Thatguy

    Love that scene with Xu Shu.
    Zhang Fei: You look suspicious.
    Xu Shu: Suspicious? No, it’s nothing like that. Just came from future into ancient China.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      technically 90% characters of DW come from the future. Look at their european face, modern anime hairstyle, and ridiculous weapon like Rocket Lance

  • Dark Zerato

    Maybe Rorona will have Yuanji outfit in the New Atelier Rorona.

  • Masa

    awful costumes, Zhao Yun one is decent though.

  • haku67

    I wish I didn’t have to buy xtreme legends for the Yuanji outfit. :/ I’m going to get it anyway just not right away

  • MrJechgo

    Kinda wished the SW series would get more love in the West :(

    • Altin

      All I want to do is play with Aya again T__T

  • fairysun

    Question of the day: How many knives does Rorona Yuanji have? And where does she store them?

  • leingod

    Awesome smexy Rorona Juanji, I like. Same generic guitar riffs as ever, I don’t.

  • FlyingPony


    This optional costume certainly damage Wang Yuanji image. What is Tecmo Koei is doing? Playing a dressing game?

    Its ridiculous isn’t it, just like how I heard it from some people here in comment section not long ago. More armor variant available… big deal !!

    • Dark Zerato

      Cosplaying is a trend in japanese games now. You can think of LR:FF as an example.

  • FlyingPony

    I think its cool to have more cross over costumes between games. Wang Yuanji Look fantastic in the Atelier Rorona costume.

  • Loli Summoner

    I said it once and I’ll say it again,yuanji does not look good in that rorona outfit to “me” *sigh* give it too guan yingping or xiaoqiao.I will never understand why people like yuanji so much…is it her weapon? design? personally? what the heck.

    • AverageGamers

      Wang Yuanji is smart, sophisticated, reliable, silent yet confident and strong enough to hold up on her own. Some guys (including yours truly) actually prefer a woman with that type of positive traits that can bring comfort to a man’s weary days, compared to the bright cheerful and bubbly type, (like for example Xiao Qiao or Bao Shanniang) because the latter gets pretty annoying to be around with after a while.

      But yes, the Rorona doesn’t suit that character at all… :(

  • AverageGamers

    Loving the Xu Shu costume, totally fit the character so much, especially that glasses. Yuanji looks cute, but I must admit, it does fell out of her stoic character.

    Anyway, since we’re on the Dynasty Warriors 8 thread… could Siliconera help to address the current DLC bug for Xbox360? The game could not load more than 15 DLC packs for the time being, and if we tried to add more, it would crash the save file.

    Here’s a proof to various reports:

    Some of us has been complaining to Koei with no response (no love for Xbox? *sigh*), so it would be helpful if a trusted site like Siliconera also put this issue in the headline… you know, just like the one every site did with Pokemon XY. Perhaps Koei would listen and take notice if it is done that way… :(

    Now about that western release…
