Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends coming to PS3, Vita this year – report

Wednesday, 21st August 2013 05:43 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Hot on the heels of the western launch of Dynasty Warriors 8, the latest Famitsu has word of a follow-up, in the form of standalone expansion Xtreme Legends.

The announce comes from Japanese reports of Famitsu leaks, and there’s a little confusion; according to Siliconera, it’s a PlayStation 3 exclusive, while Gematsu has word that it’s coming to Vita, too. The latter harvested pricing details for both platforms from its sources, which is quite convincing.

In any case, Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends appears to be getting a day-and-date PlayStation Store launch alongside a retail release, and hits Japan on November 28. Western release has not been announced but it pretty likely.

The latest addition to the bustling Warriors catalogue adds two new characters, Chen Gong and Zhu Ran, If Scenacrios, an enhanced Commander Mode, online leaderboards and “new actions”.

It will support cross-play and cross-save, and will have DLC.

    Say what you want about Vita having port, its great having these games on the go, I’m looking forward to this Musou Orochi 2 Ultimate, atelier memeru, Borderlands 2! There are lots of vita exclusives which everyone seems to dismiss – Ys memories of celesta, Valhalla knights 3, ragnarok odessey ace, demons gaze, freedom wars, proprogana, just because they are niche doesn’t mean they are not exclusive, looking forward to all, Vita FTW!

    I JUST got done with DW8!!

    I hope that whenever it comes to next gen (9?) it will do away with the multiple editions (XL, Empires) and smoosh it all in one game. But why do that when you can charge 50-60 a pop right? sigh…

    Why wasn’t Freedom Wars announced for overseas release instead of going on a indie rampage.

    Topic: Its very sad that the only big title is announced after Gamescom is by Tecmo Koei: doing more for vita than any other publisher.
