    Why settings graphics? Makes no sense.

      Why not…? This is pretty standard for PC games as it is.

      Because there is no one PC; everyone’s are different. And they want it to be playable when scaled to various different hardware.

      As TetsuyaHikari said; these are pretty standard PC Gaming options.

      It’s not a console version, where they know everyone is running the same specs. They have to let you lower it a bit if your computer can’t handle the full graphics.

  • Ksatmata

    how about 8?

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      It’s included. Added note of that.

    Hope they would localized this into US version sometime later since the last game (Dynasty Warriors 7 Xtreme Legends) never got localized into US version.

      Looking at PC version of DW 6 and 7, I say the chances aren’t good.
