Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Headed Westward On PS3, PS4 And Vita

By Ishaan . December 19, 2013 . 9:00am

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends is coming to the west. Tecmo Koei have announced. The game will be available in spring 2014 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Vita.


PlayStation 3 will get Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends, which will include just that game. The PlayStation 4 and Vita release, however, is titled Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, and includes both Dynasty Warriors 8 and the Xtreme Legends version of the game.


Tecmo Koei say the reason they’re doing a “Complete Edition” release on PS4 and Vita is because those platforms have never seen Dynasty Warriors 8 before, while PS3 has.


Both versions of the game will include English as well as Japanese voices.

  • Jelly

    One step ahead into DUAL AUDIO ERAAAAAAAA

  • TheExile285

    Yes! I’ve been wanting a new beat em up for my Vita with little to no gimmicks and this DW8 + DW8XL? Take my money Temco! :D

    It’s nice to see Temco localizing most of their games. I hope it pays off for them.

    • Pdugna

      Aww man Musou games just sound right to play on the Vita.

      • Jelly

        But there wouldn’t be any 2P mode on Vita right =P

    • DarthSithZero

      My wallet will be dead after the first 3 months of the following year,
      but I will have many games to enjoy my Vita ^0^.

  • MagisterXII

    Jackpot, Vita it is. This is something to look forward to.

    • With this and other localizations, Tecmo Koei is rising up my fav publisher list.

  • zferolie

    I actual;ly have a game to buy for my PS4 now. Sweet. I’ll keep my PS4 in it’s box till this comes out then

    • alexis cortes

      Yeah me too, none of the games out right now interest me (COD, AC4, Knack). But this and MGS5 I will definitely be getting.

  • Pdugna

    Man need money for all this new stuff being announced

  • DanielGearSolid

    I’m waiting for Empires

    • Mordina

      Same. I actually enjoy Empires much more.

      • MrTyrant

        Glad Im not the only one. I love creating my character and gather an army as a leader or servant.

        • Mordina

          Me too! :3 I just think it’s so much more fun controlling your own created character and interact with known characters of the series. I just want lots of more events and endings in Empires.

        • DanielGearSolid

          Hell Yes

      • Slayven19

        I used to enjoy empires more but now I don’t know if they will have english V.A for all games anymore for empire games since they sell so low.

    • Testsubject909

      I’m waiting for Orochi Warriors Empire.

  • PersonaSpace

    Dual audio and PS4 version? And Vita version? THANK YOU KOEI I LOVE YOU I PROMISE NOT TO DOUBT YOU ANYMORE! (Samurai Warriors 4 would be nice though)

  • Kayseur

    Definitly buying this on my Vita. TK is as supportive as always with this handheld, that’s great.

  • I will buy it! I want my Dynasty Fix ( ^..^)/

    • Testsubject909

      I still need to try and play co-op with some/any of you folks here in Siliconera.

  • ThomasTruong

    Hell, if it supported Cross-Play. I might even buy BOTH the PS4 and Vita version.

  • Ping92

    nice to see tecmo koei supporting the vita in the west with this and toukiden

  • This shall be my first Dynasty warriors game. Getting the PS4 version.

    • Justin Lorence

      You picked a good time to jump on the bandwagon. This is arguably the best game in the series.

    • Testsubject909

      Good call for gameplay.

      But for the story, at least from what I’ve played to date (I’ve only completed the Wei story. I’m playing this co-op locally with a friend so it’s slow progression), the story isn’t quite as engaging as with Dynasty Warriors 7. But with alternate endings to each factions, it provides a lot more bang for your bucks.

  • Brion Valkerion

    Cool guess I’ll hold out this holiday for the PS4 version… when I eventually get one lol.

  • fairysun

    I hope they fix the ambition mode. The mode is boring after playing it several times.
    And stop putting Red Hare as an incentive to play that mode.

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      They added new features to it….sadly in order to access said features, you have have built the Tower.

    • Testsubject909

      I’m still at a loss as to why the Elephant is further away then Red Hare.

      Red Hare is 90 in a row. The Elephant is 100 in a row.

      But the Elephant has never been all that useful to begin with.

    >English voices

    bless you KT. That’s all I really want.

  • YoshEE

    I must get both version of DW8XL and the complete edition.

  • Dark Lord Ash

    This calls for a toast, to koei! 2014 Is most certainly looking great for warriors fans.

    • Servant BerserCAR

      Can anybody provide my Vita with a decent game!?


  • oh sweet i already have dynasty warriors 8 so ill get xtreme legends on ps3

  • leingod

    YES! On the Vita too! :)

  • ajneez

    yeahhhh! tecmo koei, i love you guys! i have this game in PS· but i´m thinking buy the vita version. they always support vita

  • Ooh going vita.

  • Saintdante

    I’m excited! Nothing says pick up and play like Dynasty Warriors.

  • Rentekabond

    They said English voices, so they’ve got my sale.

    • Testsubject909

      I have to agree. The English voices are quite enjoyable to me in the Dynasty Warriors series. Yes, even when they were campy as all hell and kept on saying Cow Cow instead of Tsao Tsao.

      That and, I’m Chinese. So anyone who keeps on whining about how the immersion is broken because they don’t speak an Asian language just makes me look at them a bit odd. A bunch of Chinese warriors talking in Japanese isn’t any more immersive then them talking in English. The latter helps me to not have to read what they’re saying either.

      Because there is a noticeable drop in your performance when you have to take your eyes away from the action just to know what’s going on in the battlefield.

      • Sesshomaru

        Hahaha Cow Cow. Yeah those were they days. Darn them for starting to pronounce things properly. I prefer Zhou Yu in Japanese though. He sounds refined and snooty instead of odd….

  • Warboss Aohd

    English Voices, all i needed to hear.

    will wait til i get a PS4, and get that since i didn’t get the original version.

  • Mir Teiwaz

    Now I’m torn….Do I buy the PS3 version and continue from my save on there…or do I buy the Vita version and start all over? Choices >_<

    • Kamakuma

      I might go vita this time around and start all over I mean all I did was complete all the story modes and add somewhat did the extra mode… My only gripe is will the dlc be compatible with the vita version. ( I kinda have all the packs ><)

      • Mir Teiwaz

        Problem is I’ve done a fair bit more than that. I’ve done almost all of the Story mode and nearly maxed out my ambition mode village and have several level 99’s.

        • Testsubject909

          “Several level 99s”

          might not be an issue if the easy lv 99 glitch is still in the game.

          If you don’t know what it is. Get a weapon that can do a lot of elemental hits or that can do consistent damage. If you don’t go for the throwing hatchets, then go for the flute and get a horse that, preferably, has it so that you can’t get knocked off of it.

          In the final stage of Wei Hypothetical, the Juggernauts respawn infinitely and specifically in two spots on the map. They respawn instantly as well and they provide exp like an enemy officer.

          You can easily get over 3k kills in roughly 30 minutes or so if memory serves me correctly.

          But by the time you get 2k kills. You’ll have enough exp to turn a lv 1 character into a level 99 character.

          For the flute. Just spam the Charge attack while on the horse.

          • Testsubject909

            Oh and, obviously, the element you want is Cyclone. If not that then Slash.

          • Mir Teiwaz

            I was power leveling people through ambition mode, since you could level one character while gathering money to pay for EXP for another character. Standing around killing juggernauts for half an hour just sounds boring and tedious.

          • Testsubject909

            I just mash the Triangle button with one hand and do some surfing on the net or watch a movie or videos or catch up with my anime or manga.


            Also, put it at Beginner difficulty. The exp you get there is the same m’thinks, since there’s no noticeable increase in speed. That and, Beginner = extremely low easy to kill juggernauts = more kills per second = more exp anyways.

  • cyberkinghardy

    When’s the release date?

  • ThatDamnCanadian

    Vita version with Dual Audio and the base game? YYYEEAAAAAHHH

  • Testsubject909

    Mkay. So buying both the PS4 and Vita version then.
