It’s the moment a lot of you (or at least I have) have been waiting for! The first trailer, featuring gameplay, for Dynasty Warriors 8 (known as Shin Sangoku Musou 7 in case you’re wondering why a “7” is in the trailer) has been released! It shows off lots of action as well as the new features such as Storm Rush! It seems they are also supplying pre-orders with a download code for 12 additional costumes, so if you haven’t decided to import it yet, now would be a perfect time to do so!
Anyway, I’m definitely set on pre-ordering my copy. That’s for sure. The game looks very exciting and there is plenty of variety this time, which was always my problem with previous installments. A lot of characters played the same, but this time, it looks like with the new system mechanics and additional musous, things will stay fresh for a while. Well… As fresh as a hack and slash can be anyway!
Enough rambling though! I’m sure you’re all wanting to check out the new trailer below, so here it is. You can also check out a new batch of screenshots Tecmo Koei and Omega Force released with the trailer to see even more from this title!
UPDATE: It was mentioned before that you would get 12 additional costumes for pre-ordering, but that was incorrect actually. I didn’t check the trailer properly. It seems it actually said that the costumes come from Sangokushi 12 (also known as Romance of the Three Kingdoms 12). They are outfits specifically for Zhao Yun and Sun Shangxiang.
Sorry about the confusion, guys!
