You can read up on the details of these releases in our previous report on the games.

  • Any changes from 7,6,5,4 etc?

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Affinity System, Storm Rush, Variable Counter, the various new movesets, and the special abilities for each weapon type.

  • Warukyure

    I’ve played all the dynasty warrior games since the beginning and I have played a bit of 8 already. While it’s ok, I kinda miss how fun DW4 and DW5 were. Those were probably my favourite (except for the ridiculous requirements to get some of their final weapons). I always save Shu for last, probably my favourite kingdom and favourite team.

    • LunarKnite

      Good taste. I loved Dynasty Warriors 8 though. Being a lover of Shu myself, it was glorious to see them finally win out in the end because of the hypothetical storylines.

    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      Shu? Hmph! What is benevolence weighed against ambition? Sure, Shu has Guan Yingping but Wei has Zhang He, bro!

      • Altin

        Gotta side with Warukyure here, Wei might have the Adonis Zhang He, but Shu also got Yueying <3

        • Chido55

          Though historically she ain’t this hot XD
          but Zhuge Liang is the man among man!

          • Altin

            In the earlier DW, she looked even hotter to me (close to her DW7 design though). She reminded me a lot of Zelda (TP) in DW5.

            Yep, Zhuge Liang is quite a man indeed, but also a very lucky b*stard for having Yueying as his wife x3

          • Chido55

            I preferred this design. That whatever-you-called-it seethrough and in game, her clothing shines it looks just like latex!

            Oookay, I should stop XD

          • Altin

            Can’t blame you, she looks great either way ;)

  • Altin

    Hyped for 8 XL CE, but I really really reeeeaaally want to see WO3 Ultimate <3

  • EinMugenTenshin

    I was hoping for some more Orochi Warriors, but I guess this could work. What’d you say are the biggest differences between the two?

    • Keine

      Other than the fact Orochi is a crossover between DW and SW there is no difference imo

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    We met them seven times already.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Dynasty Warriors 8 was SO GOOD! I never had so much fun with a game as button-mashy and cheesy as DW8, balanced with two types of special meter attacks, a large variety of modes, characters and content, oh, and the campiness from Zhang He… and then there’s also Lu Bu.

    When my cousin visited from England, we one free mode mission and got him in a panic when I deliberate defeated Diochan so Lu Bu would be super pissed.

  • dahuuuundge

    Does DW8 Complete edition include both Xtreme Legends and the base game? I made the mistake of buying DW7XL only and missed out on the Musou mode that I enjoy the most.

  • Kamakuma

    It’s definitely possible when Empires comes out and we all know its coming. :”3

  • Gekokujou

    Still awaiting word on whether or not we get Rorona costume, otherwise I’ll just wait for the Japanese version to release it as DLC.

  • Brion Valkerion

    The voice acting is so annoying…. not in the actual voices just how its delivered. Every sentence is broken in two for no reason! “I won’t allow you…… to approach my lord!” “A frontal assault…. is not an option” I mean it would be one thing if they were doing something, to make the pause make sense but they NEVER are!

    I love this franchise but STOP THAT. Thats some 90s anime dub crap that went out the window years ago.

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      These are seriously old, and the dialogue isn’t broken up like this in the actual game.

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    This series never gets old to me. I will admit there are too many people, but I put up with them for play through purposes. I would like for a release to start with the Japanese voice track as an option instead of it being a DLC or come with the XL version.

  • Vash bane

    I haven’t played 8 (or 7) but i’m curious from the way one of the trailers looked is sun and liu bei no longer married? and I swear I just heard Edward’s VA o.O

    • Keine

      Well from what i played on DW NEXT (PS+ EU) Wu back stabbed Shu and Liu Bei sent SSX sent her back cause he didnt want her to fight her own family…

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Vic Mignogna does the voices of Jia Xu and Xiahou Ba.

  • Keine

    Does this have Dual Audio…??

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Japanese Audio is free DLC.

  • Göran Isacson

    Man Guan Yu, how prolific was he in his husbandly duties? That aside it looks like the voice acting is as glorious as ever, awkward pauses and stutters and so on. Now all I wish for is that Xiahou Dun gets a skin based off his DW4 look. That was so much better than the weird-ass boy band look he’s got here…
    Also when did Liu Bei get a shave?

  • Prinny Dood

    Um what’s the differences dood?

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey
