Play as the enemy in Dynasty Warriors 8

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.
