Dynasty Warriors 8 has been announced for release in Japan next year, two new characters - Yue Jin and Li Dian - have been announced and some old characters confirmed. What are your thoughts and expectations for Dynasty Warriors 8?

Well for anyone who wants to know here are the new characters for Dynasty Warriors 8, I know not all of these have been released yet but trust me that these are the actual characters. If you don't believe me then once the game comes out come back and check here and you'll see that I was right. These names were leaked on a Chinese website and Koei themselves had to contact the leaker and get her to stop posting information about the game. So if you had any doubt about the accuracy of the leak then it should be gone now.

New Characters:
Li Dian
Yue Jin
Guan Xing
Zhang Bao
Guan Yinping
Lu Su
Han Dang
Wen Yang
Jia Chong
Zhang Chunhua

If this is true, I will be so happy:

Lu Su and Han Dang are long overdue, they'll be good! But what about Cheng Pu?
I'm not sure about Guan Yinping, she would just be like Xing Cai and we don't need another one of her.
Guan Xing makes sense, as does Zhang Bao but that means Shu will have 6 characters of children (Liu Shan, Xing Cai, Zhang Bao, Guan Xing, Guan Suo, Guan Ping).
Wen Yang would be absolutely awesome, I hope they overplay his strength and make him like a later-stage Lu Bu. :D also Jia Chong would be good as a devious strategist.
Zhang Chunhua will be absolutely immense. That is all.

Just updating and stickying this topic ...

Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends and Complete Edition will be available 4/4/14 across Europe (XL for the PS3, CE for the PS Vita and PS4, respectively).

As soon as I get a Vita, CE is definitely going to join the collection since my PS3 time is reserved for other KOEI series :cool:

Anyone else here from NA already have it? Anyone of our European friends anxiously awaiting this game?

I already have DW8, I think i'm more likely to get the Vita or PS4 complete versions then the expansion on PS3.

Same here. I've got the complete edition on PS4 on the way. I'm not sure if I'll get the Vita version or not, guess it depends on how much fun I have with it on PS4.

Playing XL CE recently. Finished Lu Bu's (more other path stages left), finished Shu's completely, and hence through Wu's early stages before tackling Wei and Jin. Decided to start afresh this time on the PS4, so there's lots to do.

I didn't win my free copy of DW8:XL on Twitter, so I'm still without the game :p

Saw it on display at a local Target though, which I was pleasantly surprised to see. Normally, Gamestop or Fry's are the only places I can find retail copies (especially for an expansion).

I believe TKE already confirmed that XL and CE would have the JP voices as DLC. I just can't locate the Tweet/Post to prove it :p
