    Another September game……..Son of a Musou, I am going to be broke this fall :(

    • VietKnight

      I was hoping for November but when I saw the date I was like noo. I had Hyrule and Samurai paid off first now it is the other way around lol.

    • Rintarou

      I’ve opened a new savings account for September and October…

  • Takane Shijou

    Can’t wait to play as Sterk.

    Now if only we could’ve done something about giving him a half-way decent ending other than him turning into the Pigeon man.

  • Masa

    Hope this runs better than DW8 on ps4, it plays horrendously with all the slowdown.

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      It ran poorly on all systems across the board~.

      • Yan Zhao

        Except there were no issues on the PS3 for DW8 XL.

  • fairysun

    This is awesome !!
    Can’t wait to try the new team combo!
    The Sima Family combo looks awesome.

  • hehehehh

    so dlc for warriors orochi 3 for a minimal price? this its a minor update over the original warriors orochi 3

    • Yan Zhao

      Its a pretty big update, aside from new characters and features, theres practically a whole new campaign.

    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

      No dlc character just stages and items and weapons

  • TheBlackKnight3

    I really wish it was Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires instead.

    • Monterossa

      as if we didn’t have enough DW games already. SW fans need some love.

      • Mirai

        Which SW fans will be getting soon as SW4 will be coming to western shores this October.

        • Monterossa

          DW fans got 8 games (6, 6E, 7, 7X, 7E, 8, 8X, SF) during the PS3 era. SW fans are getting one, and it’s almost at the end of the era. SW3 and SW2 HD never left Japan.

          • haku67

            or SW 3 empires :(

          • TheBlackKnight3

            I didn’t even know that existed. Played pretty much every DW game since 3 but I haven’t touched a SW game sadly.

          • pimpalicious

            I really wanted SW2/Empires HD to be localized, I suppose I’m happy enough with 4 though assuming it’s good.

      • TheBlackKnight3

        7 Empires only came digitally and is still really expensive, and 6 Empires is really dated now. I play all DW games but I’ve been waiting a long time for a good Empires game.

    • Thatguy

      Wait for Japan release first.

  • NightzeroAX

    PS4 version is coming West too right? If it does I hope it gets a Physical release like SW4.

    • Thatguy

      I think it does. Even for US.

      Europe always had Physical copies, though

    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

      Is sw4 awesome? i loved sengoku basara 4 *.*

  • Matty

    Was hoping to see a PC release.

    • GÍlgamesh Goldenking

      Dude that dream will never be complete as tecmo koei don’t like pc much ._.

      • IkouKuhn

        Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition was released on PC though

  • pimpalicious

    Nice. I’m planning to get the Destiny bundle so I’ll buy this for PS4.

  • Souffrir

    Well, I have now learned never to buy a Koei game before a couple years have passed to see if it gets an Ultimate version.

    …come to think of it, that applies to most games in the Tecmo side of the equation, too. And I like Tecmo games, too. :/

  • SoundMatch

    So in NA PSV is download only…So what about the EU ver? I really wanna build up my retail vita collection. So far I only have Toukiden and Deception IV T~T

  • “Also present in the game are new crossover characters, such as Xu Shu from Dynasty Warriors, Kasumi from Dead or Alive, and even characters from the Atelier games”

    ^ This is the reason why I want this game. So many awesome cameo’s :)

  • sticksflixnixhix

    sorry, but digi only? when you released it physical elsewhere? nope.
    will not support and at that price you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    how on earth you expect physical retail prices for digi games is deplorable.

    supporting by proxy the gouging of memory to a digi-only game structure is blatant anti-consumer.

    hell, even the $39.99-59.99 game price tags should be investigated by the FTC for price fixing.

    you want my money KOEI? give us the physical game like gave to other regions and NOT in the form of account locking digital purchases that cost the same as physical release.

    physical release! get it? write it down!

    the push to digi only for the US is coming and should be stomped away for all future generations. maybe, had the memory costs not been soo obliviously inflated i wouldnt be side-eyeing games who force this anti-consumer structure.

    SONY shit in there bed with the pricing of the memory cards and now the publshers/devs are washing/changing the sheets for them.

    this digi only for other regions while the others get a physical is appalling.

    oh and hey KOEI, when ya gonna patch/fix DWXLCE? as a consumer, i additionally have a hard time supporting any dev/publisher who doesnt fix whats broken for any title. releasing a title, only to abandon it a few months later while early adopters are left in wait is dishonorable. even for you.

    you really gotta love it when publishers claim the games dont sell well in certain regions when there release structure causes more people to import.

    well chock up more sales number out of my countries commerce and into anothers. sales numbers outsourced initialized.

    and to the people who dont think this is an issue… im happy for your contention and trust me, we wont see eye to eye. arguing for any companies anti-consumer policies will always fail in my book. save the quibble.

    and the “be happy your getting it all” stance is really a lesser of two evils and not a positive but a 2 steps forward/3 steps back for gaming/consumers.

    not all of us welcome the digi-only for some, physical for everyone else of xenophobia of gaming today.

  • Testsubject909

    Eh… maybe the Europeans will have a retail version. Just like the last few times I had to import.

  • three sworn brothers
