Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Is Out In March

By Ishaan . February 7, 2014 . 11:33am

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends has a release date. The game will be available on March 25th in North America and April 4th in Europe.


The game will be available in two versions. Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends on PlayStation 3 is a stand-alone expansion of Dynasty Warriors 8, and will include new episodes and a new story character, Lu Bu.


Meanwhile, PlayStation 4 and Vita will get Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, which will include both Xtreme Legends as well as the original Dynasty Warriors 8, since the game wasn’t originally released on these platforms.


Tecmo Koei also say Dynasty Warriors 8 save data from PlayStation 3 will be transferrable across all versions of the game.

    You might want to edit this a bit. As I’m sure the writer was aware of, Lu Bu is not a new character.

    • Aunna Terrell

      I don’t think he meant as a NEW character but the Others didn’t have a story in the original DW8, like Wei/Wu/Shu/Jin… But Lu Bu has a story in the story mode in XL.

      • D H

        Yep, it’s worded a little oddly, but it’s saying that Lu Bu is a new character for the DW8 story mode. It should really be something more like “and a new story mode for Lu Bu” or something similar, but if you know what is meant, its easy to figure out. It’s only when you don’t know that it creates a problem…

    Well, I finally have my first PS4 game. I can actually open my PS4 I got on launch


    I remember playing i think it was DW3 on PS2 many years ago, at the time i enjoyed it, would this be a decent PS4 game to get?

  • Ooh Bee

    Damn TK isn’t playing around. This is what, their fourth release set for March?

  • Kornelious

    Good to know that I’ll be able to get this with my PS4 in May :)

    Buying Day 1, My ps4 is hungry.

  • cloudcaelum

    PS4 version looks very amazing. For PS4 will be 60FPS? Anyone know?

    And i wanna see Vita version too, any video or pics?

      I’m laughing cause they said Tomb Raider Definitive Edition on the PS4 was stated to have 60 fps in its entirety but Eurogamer proven otherwise.

      They can’t churn out a game in under a year and have it operated at 60fps without rigid playtesting. If they can’t even manage Knack at 60 fps where it dips down to 15 fps in some places I doubt the company could remotely do it for Dynasty Warriors 8 xtreme with all the soldiers on screen at once.

    Sweeet I’ve been craving this for a while now. My ps4 is ready

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    I’ve dumped like 80 hours on DWN on my PSV. I just hope this time it won’t have stupid trophies requiring ad hoc~.

  • Kevin Delphi

    Question. If i get the XL of DW8, do I need the original version to play the story or characters from it?

    • Skode

      Yes if you get the PS3 version. The PS4/Vita versions however are the “complete editions” which contain all content from DW8 and DW8XL on one disc.

  • TheExile285

    WELP *Pre-Orders Vita version*

    • Ric Vazquez

      Same here

  • PersonaSpace

    Well damn, I wasn’t expecting this until Summer. Time to hurry up and platinum DW8 on PS3.

  • leingod
