Dynasty Warriors 8 hits PS3, 360 in July

Tecmo Koei has announced Dynasty Warriors 8 will be released in July in the UK.

The game follows the stories of the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu and Jin through the actions of “historical military and political figures of the time,” as they fight to gain control over the Three Kingdoms of China. However, this time out, the game merges numerous replay elements like multi-endings and extra modes with “synergies between action and game systems.”

Dynasty Warriors 8 also also contains a number of new and returning playable characters, such as Yue Jin and Li Dian from the Wei Kingdom, who make their first appearance in the series, along with over 70 playable characters.

The game also contains over 40 completely new stages: verdant plains, desolate wastelands, sharp ravines, huge castles, and other sites.

Dynasty Warriors 8 will release on July 12 in the UK and on July 16 in North America for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Loads of screenshots and some box art are below.
