Plus, six more characters confirmed for the roster.

When you meet certain conditions in Dynasty Warriors 8, you can play as the enemy attack force during “reverse scenarios” in free mode, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

There will also be on-off two-player co-op support.

The magazine also confirms six more characters for the game’s ever-growing roster: Ma Chao, Cai Wenji, Xu Zhu, Ma Dai, Deng Ai, and Zhong Hui.

Dynasty Warriors 8 will launch for PlayStation 3 on February 28 in Japan.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

        Besides that, we get lag input commands when playing as the small fries.
        Chain 3 attacks max, 5 seconds delay, repeat attack.

    Need clarification, please…. I thought DW7XL already did this…

    Deng Ai, short pants and pony tail!?
    What has become of him? He was so beast-like in DW7.

    Where is Wang Yi? She is one of my favorite characters and has an awesome theme song too.

    Oh, by the way, did they announce localization or release date for the west yet?
