Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends coming west this spring

PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions to include original Dynasty Warriors 8.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends is coming to North America and Europe in spring 2014, Tecmo Koei announced.

On PlayStation 3, Tecmo Koei will release Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, which includes only Xtreme Legends. On PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, Tecmo Koei will release Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, which includes both Dynasty Warriors 8 and Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends.

The reason for this, explained Tecmo Koei, is because while PlayStation 3 owners already have access to the original Dynasty Warriors 8, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita owners do not.

The game will feature both English and Japanese voice overs.

    Well, the PS3 version being Xtreme Legends only isn’t that big a surprise. Isn’t that how the Japanese PS3 version is? In any case, can’t wait to buy this on PS4!

      Haven’t all XL games been standalone to begin with? Or was that Empires I’m thinking of >.>

      • Pyrofrost

        You’re thinking of Empires; XL games are basically expansion packs for numbered installments.

  • Budgiecat

    Man, I did NOT see that coming!

  • Pyrofrost

    Hopefully they will be giving a Western announcement for Dynasty Warrior Gundam 4 and Samurai Warriors 4 soon.

  • Elvick

    Is there confirmation of retail availability for all versions in NA? Mostly the Vita version. :P

    Really want it on my Vita. Love the Tecmo Koei love.

    Is there any confirmation that the Complete Edition is a Cross buy thing?

    • Pyrofrost

      As of now, no; but if it’s like OP Kaizoku Musou or Shin Gundam Musou, you will have to buy them separately but cross-save will be supported.

  • MrKappa

    This is what I like hear, I’ll be picking this up on PS4.
    Also now that they know people want the English voices and they have time I hope the narrator is back with his epic voice.

  • sherimae1324

    i really love how tecmo always support the vita as if they are the one who owns the system, lol

  • kiri25

    Hmmm guessing tecmo is done with releasing the dw series on the xbox consoles. Not surprising tho I honestly don’t think they sold as well on xbox.

  • Gundam Gamer

    That is BS!!! Japan is getting both XL and DW8+XL on PS3!!!

    • GhostNomad

      Err… The PS3 version of DW8 is already out in JP, NA, EU, and AUS. XL is already out in JP, coming soon to NA and EU. The PS4 version (DW8+XL) will be a launch release in JP, coming soon to NA and EU.

      Everyone already has/will soon have DW8 and XL on PS3. The PS4 users are getting a bundle since there’s no DW8 on it yet.

      • Gundam Gamer

        No, dude. What I mean is that in Japan they also released a DW8+XL Bundle for PS3, while in the US and Europe the bundle will be PS4 and PSV exclusives, get it? I didn’t buy DW8 because I was hoping the DW8+XL bundle would be release for PS3 in the US.

    The RPG library for psvita is impressive. The handheld is getting a steady rpg catalog

    • Tetsu

      Dynasty Warriors isn’t an RPG.
      I mean, what you say is true, but DW doesn’t contribute to that.

  • TheExile285

    Complete Edition on Vita? TAKE MY MONEY TEMCO!

    Been inching for a non-gimmicky beat em up for my Vita! ^__^

    • Solomon_Kano

      Beast em up lol.

  • Pyrofrost

    @Sal: Is there a way you can find out how they plan to work out the trophies on the complete edition? Is the PS4 version just going to include a list for both like HD collections and what-not; or are they going to just have one long 85 trophy list? Or will original DW8 trophies be cut?

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I think that’s a question best left for inspchin: https://twitter.com/inspchin Shoot him a tweet! ;D

      • Pyrofrost

        May I use Gematsu as the website I belong to on my profile?
        I just made my twitter account and tweeted him. ^_^

      • Pyrofrost

        He said he will be able to make a confirmation for us on Jan. 6th. when he gets back to the office.

    • Akimitsu

      It’s possible that each game will have its own trophy lists, kind of like how HD collections do it with each game. I can’t think they will cheap out and just combine both into one trophy list.

      • Pyrofrost

        I am definitely hoping for the former.

  • HighBrowDrifter

    PS3: …ahhhh, you guys get the Complete Edition….not fair!

    PS4: Hey Copernicus, throw us a freakin bone will ye?!

    PSVita: Seriously, you gotta chill, pop. You have the original DW8…..so
    shut it!

    PS3: *whips out a pocket knife, greases up hair like John
    Travolta*……..You wanna take this outside associate?

    PS4: *initiates Remote Mafiosi, PSVita takes out a knife and and points it
    at PS3 as told by PS4*…..Everybody breath. Lets not do anything
    we might regret later, mkay?

    They slowly began to move in circles, fixating their eyes at one another, swinging their blades around frantically. Every time they finished one cycle, they became faster and faster, until they started to jump, dancing like it’s the 80’s……Footloose by Kevin Bacon was playing…..The End.

    • Gundam Gamer

      But PS3 gets the “complete edition” in Japan… It’s even already out at the JPN PS Store… .__.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Hmm… which will come first this or Watch_Dogs… not like it matters it is when either one comes out that determines when I get my PS4, or InFamous I keep bouncing on whether or not I want that.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips
