KOEI TECMO Details PlayStation® Vita Specific Features For Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires In New Trailer

Release Date and New Information Revealed; PlayStation®Store Early Purchase Bonus Content Confirmed

KOEI TECMO America released today a bundle of new information and assets, including a brand new trailer, for the digital only, PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system release of the famed tactical action title DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires on November 24th.

Watch the trailer below.


Specifically, players will be able to enjoy exhilarating Warriors action on the go, using new intuitive touchscreen controls for actions such as calling their faithful steed or activating the powerful ‘Rage’ state! The touchscreen can also be used to select and activate special skills called Stratagems, allowing the player more accurate control of the battlefield.

Since even the most powerful warriors need allies, DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires encourages two-player ad hoc cooperative multiplayer, allowing nearby friends to join together and survive the fierce battles of ‘Empire Mode’, or overcome the challenging scenarios in ‘Free Mode’.

Furthermore, the title is compatible with PlayStation®TV, meaning gamers can enjoy the game on large screens. For those already in possession of the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 versions, Cross-Save and Cross-Play functionality is enabled across all versions, and content downloaded for the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 can be downloaded on the PS Vita version free of charge.

Lastly, KOEI TECMO announced downloadable early-purchase bonus content, available to those who purchase the game during its first month of release on the PlayStation®Network! Specifically, this ‘Special Edit Parts’ pack includes equipment and costumes based on fan favorite KOEI TECMO characters: Guo Jia and Guan Yinping from Dynasty Warriors 8, Date Mashamune from the (Japan-only) social game Nobunyaga no Yabou, and a very special Tenko costume from the sensational demon-hunting action title Toukiden!
