Tecmo Koei will publish Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends for PS3, PS4 and Vita in North America and Europe this spring, and this week, they confirmed some of the features that will be present in all three versions of the game.


Via Facebook, Tecmo Koei confirmed that Dynasty Warriors 8 save data on the PlayStation 3 is transferrable to Xtreme Legends on all three platforms. Additionally, the PS3, PS4 and Vita versions of Xtreme Legends support cross-save and cross-play.


Finally, Remote Play on PlayStation 4 using the PS Vita is supported as well.

    Nice !!
    I hope more games support this kind of feature in the future (assuming they are released on Sony platform).

    Where’s the most important? Cross-buy…

    • pimpalicious

      The game will never be cross-buy, maybe the DLC though.

    • Clate

      Why should Look give you a game for free? It is a benefit that some devs decided to do but it should never be expected

  • rainelee

    Are DLCs transferable too? Say PS3 to PS4?

      I remember seeing an article about that, and Apparently one of the press releases in japan stated that DLC is cross-buy. But I cant find anything solid, aside from off-handed sources.

      Would be an issue, since most games have problems when loading a save when DLC is missing. More so with persistant games like Skyrim or GTA, less so on with per mission based games like DW, but we have to wait till it hits japan on ps4 to know more.

        the newer dlc i own for the ps3 grants me the vita dlc entry on my download list. so i guess dlc is possibly cross-buy. my guess is some earlier dlc is included with xtreme legends complete for ps4 and vita

    This is great news! Now I can finally enjoy derp adventures with one of my friends who only has a vita and 360. X’D

    … Manly tears were shed today t.t

    Toukiden and Dynasty Warriors 8 wooohoo

    Now go for New Atelier Rorona <3

    Really hate how the story mode in this is pretty bad. Lu Lingqi and Diao Chan also NEVER interact, like ever. Great opportunity there, Koei decided to ignore it completely.

    So I would recommend skipping this, as really only the added characters are the draw in this, and wait for DW9 which will have said characters from this as well as extras.

    I wonder how the PS3 data transfer to the PS4 is my only wonder in this.
