    I wonder if they’re going to announce a next-gen Musou at TGS?

    This game just came out a little over a month ago. I’m expecting Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires next month as well Koei.

    Vita, too!

  • Milla

    Koei pls my wallet can’t handle this…

  • MrKappa

    I don’t think there was anyone who didn’t doubt this was coming. This is why I didn’t buy it the first time.

  • Kobracon

    YES! Other than One Piece Pirate Warriors 2, I NEEDED a DW game on the Vita that ISN’T effing DW NEXT!

      Ummm… Vita?

      • bloodiOS

        Well, this game has a Vita version… right?

        • Pyrofrost

          Warriors Orochi 3 only got a PSP version for portable play.

          • bloodiOS

            At least its Ultimate version also comes out on Vita.

            • Pyrofrost

              Oh, I didn’t realize that. I only knew about the PSP version of Orochi 3

      • Kobracon

        What, I…yes Vita?

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          It makes more sense now that he has edited the article, lol. I commented when it first stated it was only for PS3 :P

          • Kobracon


    • bloodiOS

      Looking forward to Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate?

      • Kobracon

        Oh holy shit I forgot! You just made my day, BlooDIOs! *ahem* sry. Too much JoJo

  • Pyrofrost

    I look forward to playing this; however, I’m sure everyone here can say that they aren’t surprised by this news.

  • sherimae1324

    i love tecmo koei support for the PS Vita ^_^

    • Budgiecat

      Yeah but I don’t like them for not localizing the free DLC for Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll and also never localizing the PS2 and PSP copies of Zill O’ll RPG. Or Dreamcast’s Seven Magic Mansions. As well as not localizing (to the U.S.) Project Zero II remake (Fatal Frame II for Wii), and no physical U.S. release for Fist of the North Star 2.

  • PrinceHeir

    finally it’s here :D

    so i’m guessing Empires is next year? :)

    so after that, they can finally make a next gen Dynasty Warriors for PS4 with open world battles and all ^^

  • Elvick

    If they localize it physically I’ll buy it for sure. If not, I’ll finally pick up Next and settle for that… oh how I wanted OP: Pirate Warriors 2.

  • LennoG

    My concern here is… what will they do with the Vita version? The XL I have played so far is DW7XL, and it required the 1st disc to unlock story and whatever the other mode called…

    Maybe they will make the PS3 one a partial upgrade like DW7XL, and the Vita one with complete everything like SW3Z?

  • Budgiecat

    Online VS mode please?

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      VS in a Musou game has never ended well =3=

    Glad I skipped the main game… I’m getting this instead…

    Hopefully the Vita sales pick up after the announced price drop.. Otherwise, it’s Pirate Warriors again….

      So I wasn’t tripping, oh wow, that feels so soon to release an expansion. Oh well, hopefully this will make it over.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Why would you be tripping? I found the expansions are much more fun than the main ones tbh… Now that you mention it, it does felt a bit too soon for an expansion..

        DW has a higher chance of localization than SW so don’t worry about it too much…

  • MasterSensei

    Koei is taking the Vita and making sweet, sweet love to it.
    Hopefully there will be more Dynasty Warriors games that’s on both PlayStation 3 and Vita in the near future.

    • MasterSensei

      I’ve never been interested in the Xtreme Legends I’d much rather play the Empires or Vanilla versions of the games but if it’s on Vita I’ll bite.
