Step out and step into a portable Dynasty Warriors® experience unlike any other. Up to four friends can team‐up for a wide range of heroic action‐packed quests. Become one of history’s greatest warriors and work as a team to conquer heavily‐armed fortresses, infiltrate enemy strongholds and more. Spectacular battles await!

• Accept quests to conquer massive fortifications or slay massive unimaginable creatures.
• Gather with friends and fight together as a single overwhelming force to complete mission objectives.
• Fight in the air and on the ground! Enemies will make clever use of the terrain and space, and attack from nearly every direction.
• Incredible customization! Create and modify weapons using supplies gathered during battle. Also customize the look of your character with the game’s “Chi & Orbs” effects.
• Three powerful stories based on each of the Three Kingdoms.
• Download and share content with other players.
• Features both enhanced single player adventures along with multiplayer missions.
• Developed by KOEI’s award‐winning team, Omega Force.

Until now the quintessential Dynasty Warriors experience pitted a lone warrior against thousands of ruthless enemies. Dynasty Warriors®: Strikeforce will forever change the way gamers experience the Dynasty Warriors universe.

In the game, players will enlist in quests that will challenge their very sense of what it means to be a true warrior. Each quest will take players to enormous, heavily‐armed strongholds where enemy soldiers man batteries of massive and equally‐devastating weapons.

Up to four players can join together and form a “Strikeforce” to conquer these heavily armed fortresses. Working as a team, players can plan a coordinated attack, confuse the enemy or lure unsuspecting soldiers into a trap. Uniting and fighting as a team are the keys to victory!

While immense fortresses, towers, and ships serve as the settings for these legendary quests, the supernatural abilities of the game’s combatants will let players take the lighting‐fast action to where it has never gone before‐ the skies above.

With enemies and allies streaking across the sky, new “air” fighting techniques to master, and colossal challenges to conquer, the game’s action will deliver a Dynasty Warriors experience unlike any other.

The game is now available for download as a demo if you have a Japanese PSN account. Also, thanks to Tetsuo9999 from KOEI Warriors, he's uploaded the opening to the game and a gameplay video of Ling Tong too!

The gameplay looks awesome and its finally an adventure/fighting game, can't wait to play it.
If the game is already that good, imagine playing it with two or more players co-operative. :D

Yeah thank you for showing that video LDZ, & thanks to Tetsuo9999 from KW to have made it ^^
The intro & Ling Tong gameplay are cool, but as many people said this game looks hard to play XD The fact that the character can visit village look great! :)

DWSF: Multiplayer Gameplay.

This game just keeps showing its great quality with each vid. KOEI did a great work on this game.
It seems you can perform actions such as show your affraid, clap, praise, wave other players, etc.

Hi guys, I went with an invitation to play DWSF's English version. Since I've got a headache right now, I'll post my bit tommorow, though it's nothing you won't really know already. But I can confirm that the English VA's return, so that's great news.

Also note the narrator from WO is in.

Hopefully it'll be posted soon. :)

Same here, though the US version of course. The only local person I know with a PSP does not like the DW series at all. Hopefully, I can convince him that this game is a different game than the traditional Warrior title. ;)

You can play it as single mode though. You may find the game is hard because some of the stage you need to use specific weapon (category) to attack your opponent, so need to choose the most effective weapons, Chi & Orbs and most importantly, meat buns in your item list :)

Mr.Honda
04-03-09, 11:24 PM
Yea, I'm ok with 1-player ... once I can read the Chi & Orbs stuff >.<

The multiplayer, for me, is like the icing on the cake. Its already awesome by itself, but with icing it adds that little extra bit.

Hu Luo gate on 1-player is so hard >.< got absolutely owned on it the first time I tried it yesterday (but like Chin said it's probably because I cant understand which orbs or chi to pick to give Cao Cao a chance). Loving this game so far though!

05-03-09, 08:37 PM
I accidentally deleted my demo game save when I was trying to play as every character yesterday >.<

Now I have to start all over with Ling Tong. This time, I'm going to try to use the orbs & that other stuff I can't figure out >.<

Ling Tong's weapon and MS is great ^^ I always use that as my anti-battle cart second weapon.

(this game is flipping hard for single players in my opinion).

EDIT: Single players playing the Japanese version that can't read Japanese lol.

06-03-09, 03:06 PM
@ GLP: Aww, that sucks. Its a great way to get familiar with the new controls and game mechanics. Hopefully it won't take too long to release in AU ;)

@ Leady: I main Ling Tong with Zhou Yu staff as his alternate. Those two are some of the best movesets in this game, IMO, and the combos you can create between the two of them are awesome. Taishi Ci is also pretty cool, as is Liu Bei.

I finally equipped some items yesterday and am now able to float around by Holding X lol

In the town, I have both arms and feet with glowing items on them, but in the actual game, I only have one foot glowing O.o ... I'm so lost XD

Yer, I had that. Chin told me only some arm effects can be seen in the level. I have one fireball arm now in the levels ^^

I just managed to pass Lu Bu and his big dog last night (thanks to Gischie for cheer-leading me on that!). I wasted 1000g on items to do that but it was mainly down to Ling Tongs weapon being great anti-dog! (especially his jumping down/charge move).

Then I got killed by Dongers in the level after it because I had no money for items -_-

Well the game most certainly looks fun, that's for sure. I just need a PSP now. And I'm definitely not gonna import it. My japanese is horrible anyway. At best I might be able to figure out a few names. But man, I can't wait to see some Guan gameplay. :) *hopeful look*

Ok it's official i'm gonna buy a psp so i can play this game!! I've been putting off buying a psp for so long but it looks like i've finally caved. I'll get my psp when the game is released! How cute are those figures that you get with the pre-order. I think it's possible that they twisted my arm a little bit more!!!

Aww, you got to use Ling Tong and his awesome weapon. I've had to resort to using Zhao Yun + Zhou Yu's staff to clear that stage in the demo. If I play it right, I can make it to Lu Bu and Bi Xie without using any items.

Once I get to Lu Bu + Bi Xie, I lose track of the items though. Sometimes they disappear faster than meat buns left alone in a room with Xu Zhu :p

Okay. If the Chi you equipped is for the Normal form it will appear on both towns and in battlefield. If the Chi only takes effects during FURY status, that means on battlefield, those glow will be appeared when you're in FURY transformation only. They put it available to view the glowing effect when you're at town because it's easy to differentiate because you can't walk around in Fury form in town XD

In short:
At the city, all the glowing effects will be shown on your arms and legs.
On the battlefield, when you're on Normal (All) form only the Chi effects will be shown when you're on Normal form.
When you're on Fury form, the Normal (All) + Fury Chi effects will be shown.

Sorry for the late of response ^^"

I've just been going throught the DWS website and those designs for fury form (is it fury?) look amazing. I'm just going through the Wu characters at the moment and i have to say Sun Jian & Lu Meng look amazing!!! Lu Meng looks like a wild man. Oh i had a look at Lu Bu and he looks totally demonic, FAB! I can't wait for this!
Xiao Qiao looks so cute.

Leady FF ^^
09-04-09, 10:49 AM
We have 40 friendship now ^^ (I wonder what the maximum is).

I have to say the Cudgel moveset in Strikeforce is probably my favourite in a DW gamer ever. The moves chain together so well for aerial attacks the sky-dive ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3JJAijsAKs&feature=channel_page ) is genius.

Mr.Honda

Now I have 100-friendship.

well, yer its a multiplayer gamer so I guess it more fun with 2+ players. I'm lucky to have a gf who has a PSP to play with me.

It must be damn hard facing some of the big bosses by yourself!

Well, I won't know exactly how hard until next week :p

Bi Xie in the English demo is a pushover, but I know it gets crazy later >.<

Leady FF ^^
20-04-09, 09:40 PM
If u can Bie Xie you'll be ok. Just copy my load out:

1. Meat Bun (++)
2. Elixir
3. Cure Rob (well maybe not if it's just you)
4. Flute x 5
5. Stalkerstones (they are like homing missiles)

That always gets me thru (although I do have a crazy Yue Ying looking after me!).

By the way does anyone know where there is a list of the legend scroll locations?

Mr.Honda
21-04-09, 02:40 PM
Hmm, my item setup for the demo is usually:

- Meatbuns (10)
- Elixir (10)
- Nectar (10)
- Elixir (10)
- Panacea (5)

Elixir to keep me in Fury mode, health when I need it, and the Nectar to cure me when I'm lit on fire, zapped by lightning, etc. I never seen some of the items you listed though O.o


By the way does anyone know where there is a list of the legend scroll locations?

Hah, so that's what I found in that side area in Chapter 2 of the demo. The Legend of Diao Chan scroll. I wonder what these do in the full release ...

21-04-09, 02:45 PM

It unlocks a special duel with Diao Chan mission. if you can complete that you get a special material that u need to manufacturer a high-level whip weapon etc. (basically the characters signature).

We need to scroll for Yue Ying so that Gischie can build the last bladebow ^^

Kudos to whoever has the brilliance and patience to put together an FAQ for all this XD

These are some ofte best missions in the game. I especially like Liu Bei and the amazing regenrating Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.

The other side missions are the the Orochi ones. The 2x Da ji in a pit of poision one is hard.

Mr.Honda
24-04-09, 03:06 PM
I was browsing the Japanese Wiki site for this game and there are a lot of missions O.o

40+ side missions (if I was reading the charts right) in addition to the 6 chapters for each story with all their missions.

That doesn't include the DLC missions either.

Google Translator FTW :D

Leady FF ^^
24-04-09, 03:31 PM
Does the Japanese wiki tell you where to find Yue Ying's Legend scroll by any chance?

Mr.Honda
24-04-09, 04:06 PM
Perhaps, but running the kanji through the translator to find names isn't working too well for me right now >.<

Numbers are thankfully universal so at least I could count the missions XD

It's great, but the difficulty levels are unbalanced. It's almost like it was MEANT to be played multiplayer. Even the end of chapter 1 is hell. By the end you face so many group fights against Awakened characters that you'll spend more time on your ass than you ever did in the usual DW set.

I love the last part to Chapter 1. It's complete mayhem, i loved it! I levelled up to Lvl 18 by just redoing the side quests and the othe parts of chapter one and searching for all the crates and selling spoils to buy new weapons.

To me I think the Chapter one is best to use the TECH weapon characters like Xiao Qiao, Zhuge Liang or Pang Tong, because those magicians from the Yellow Turban is weak against the TECH weapons, and those fans can wind them away ^^

Well I bought some fans that normally you would see with Xiao Qiao and equipped them on Sun Jian, he looked so ridiculous when he was attacking. I quickly changed them back, lol!

I think that the Panda should accompany you to your battles and look cute and roll over but that would probably distract me and then I'd be killed >.<

I don't if this has done the same for anybody else but when I used Sun Shang Xiang in DW6 with the bow I found it pretty much a nightmare and didn't like using it. Since DWStrikeforce though I've found I've been using it alot and actually pretty much love it now along with the Bladebow!


I'll tell you what though it's the most fun I've had in a game levelling up (as well as WO2).
I really love this game and it has to be THE best Dynasty Warriors game along with Warriors Orochi 2. So since my favourite was DW5 it is now DWStrikeforce.

I just thought I'd share that with you, lol!

I'm happy the weapon changes made to Cao Pi etc apply in this game, its the PAL regions first chance to use them. Cao Pi is my favourite character, that sword is LONG!

I can only play it 1P though, that Zhang brothers fight at the end of Chapter 1 was intense! I had to beat that Yellow Thunder thing as well.

I love the fury forms, the characters look cool!

By the way how do you do the optional quests, like Orochis Ambition?

Well Gundam 2 looked more daunting when booting it up for the first time. Thanks to the sheer number of units present, it really felt alive in terms of an atmosphere. I had the same feeling when playing DW6 as well. Everything just looked buzzing and so busy.

I'm not saying Strikeforce fails, but just commenting on what you said about it being busy.

On a side note, I've noticed that this AI isn't really a dum AI, as they would lie and stay lying when charging an attack, and at one point already, I had an enemy officer not move closer to me (he stood still) when I was expecting him to fall for it. As soon as I let go knowing he weren't going to flinch, he just went all crazy over the place. So I'm gonna have a more troubling time abusing the timing methods like I always have done in the DW series.

What level are you if you are struggling with chapter 6? Better get myself prepared lol

Jarlino
17-05-09, 12:53 PM
Chapters six basically comes down to fighting three boss battles in a row (REAL boss battles as in... GIANT animals which you have to kill.) and a final fight with a frenzied giant in a windy tower. ;)

Onislash, if the "assistant" you're talking about is Lu Bu, just kill him when he appears. ;)
Beating him gives a massive boost to your Fury gauge, it will take some time for him to respawn, and you won't have to worry about him using "Seal" on you while you're focusing on the boss.

Since it's the first battle of that chapter, what creature are you fighting?

My story was Wei, so I had to fight the Death Phoenix first. Might be another creature first if you play as the other kingdoms?

Onislash
17-05-09, 01:02 PM
Same as you, Jarlino. That boss is seems not effected by poison and take what looks like 0 damage. I have tried the mission 10 times now and the boss just does not seem to effected by poison sadly.

I am level 42. I lack some items for most "ultimate weapons" even though I bashed though all "Request levels" (except legends items of course). I wonder where they could be found.

They are until you figure out some kinda strategy. I highly recommend a staff!
It all boils down to the way you play too, I could suggest a strategy but you may not find it the easiest way. Leady could suggest something and it would be great. It all just depends. I always get rid of Diao Chan first and then Lu Bu and then i attack the beast.

17-05-09, 01:37 PM
At least Cao Pi is somewhat good with staffs. Although.. Do you mean canes or Zhou Yu weapon? I am praying canes. Cao Pi is really bad with staffs, currently the lowest easily (220 compared to average of 600 with the rest of the experience on weapons)

Jarlino
17-05-09, 03:52 PM
Equip Coup De Grace-chii(or Munch Hero tome's if you don't have the materials for Coup) to deal a bit more damage to the giant beasts.

As for the Death Dragon:
Attack it's body, not the head.

All of these bosses have a specific point which takes more damage (For those reading who don't know: you can switch the locked-on target by pressing the "UP" arrow while locked on.)

Death Phoenix has it's talons as a weaker point,
and the Wu tiger takes more damage in it's face, but has a tail part which can be destroyed to stop it's lightning attack.

If you keep smashing the dragon's body while the Hero's tome is active, you should do more damage. Combine it with the special skill (For sword, I think it's analog left-right-Triangle) you should be able to make it.

At least, I used a pike, which wasn't super effective and use the tornado slash to deal massive damage. :)

Just remember that the Lantern (IIRC) item reveals enemy weak points ^_^

Not that an entire item slot is worth using just for that, but I guess you could try it one time to identify the weak point, then replace the item with something else and return if you don't clear the stage.

Why is Coup de Grace/Hero Tome so effective? Anyone who can beat me so easily is not that weak compared to me. Besides it one-hit kos weak enemies according to the description. I doubt that is going to happen.

Jarlino
18-05-09, 03:48 PM
That's the description. What it does is massively increase your attack with some special stat which Officers have a 100 % resistance again.

The bosses like Xi bie, Death phoenix and all other big , non-human bosses, don't have the resistant, but they have massive amounts of hp.

try it, you'll do more damage. At least you'll see the bar go down with a few strikes, instead of thinking the bosses are invincible. ;)

Do you mean by starting a new story? Then no it doesn't. I tried it. It's gonna be a case of starting a new story but having nothing that you've acquired during your first story. The only way you're gonna keep everything is if you just change characters at the shrine and level a new one up and go through the missions for the other factions that have been unlocked.
Although when you do the missions for the other actions it doesn't unlock any other videos than the ones you've already unlocked by doing the first story.

You might find the game a bit too difficult at times, but just replay the noticeboard missions and gain some Deeds, which is the experience term in Strikeforce. Remember if you even lose you still gain experience, so you will be progressing.

Just so addictive too! I have no idea who to use at any point! I mean, the random missions are easy enough, it's just that the last stage of each chapter seems to be marginly harder for someone roughly well equipped to pass. You do need to grind on easy, repeatable levels...

Got to 35 last night with my new Xu Zhu (spear stat is still below 600 tho lol - so still on my second spear weapon lo). Killing the long-distance running Zhuge Liang on the final Shu mission took absolutely ages ^^ Eventually Gischie told me to just give up and through Stalkerstones at him - that worked better :D

I'm just at level 20 with Yue Ying, i love the bladebow weapon! :) The thought of starting a new story and doing what I've already done again really doesn't appeal I've decided I'm aiming for 100% in everything (levelling every character to level 50 though isn't gonna happen, yet). I've even ordered another Dynasty Strikeforce for the my other psp in the hopes of getting my other half to play then I can get any treasures that are available in the v's modes, lol!

Just beat chapter 5 :D

Starting some of the 5 star quests (Yellow Turban ones from chapter 1), although they seem very easy and little reward - or am I missing something?

Spoiler, but nevertheless read if you want.

By completeing some of the 5 star levels you unlock the other characters. For example beat the 5 start Yellow Turban Rebellion to unlock Zhnag Jiao, etc.

The maximum level is 5 for a shop. After it reaches the maximum you get a special material from the shop keeper ^^ (thats correct isnt it?)

I did wonder why they are carrying on levelling after i got to 5......

Does anyone know if there are specific requirements to unlock the officer cards, or are they random?

Also, little tip for anyone who is playing as Liu Bei - right shoulder button + triangle = spinny blade thing of death!! It is SO effective its unreal

It seems like they're random but whether they are I don't know. I've got 92.0% so far. Everytime I've done a quest I keep hoping that there is gonna be someone there when I get back to the city to add to the collection, lol!

As Liu Bei, I tried to keep my distance as much as possible and used the bow. It took a while, but it got him low enough so I could use a few elixirs to fury > musour > repeat :D

Used a load of dim sum tho!

The most stupid piece of advice you'll get...And maybe the most usefull...
Don't get hit!

It's not a safe thing to run into the Orochi bosses, since every single one of them (Orochi, Da Ji, Kiyomori and Orochi X) have more HP then your average monster-sized boss, and tend to do some REALLY unfair stuff. (Calling in the rulers of the three kingdoms, clones, refilling HP,etc..)

Good luck! ;)

Must be because 90 % of her kqmjfdqmkjqdsfmlkjqsfdm Stage is poisonous. :mad:

Well that's two bugs that have gone in my favour today. First Lu Bu suddenly dropping dead on Bi Xie with about 75% HP. Now Diao Chan trying to jump back on her moving platform at the end of chapter 3, but kept on head-butting it, so I managed to kill her quite simply, and cheaply.

I remember when Gischie and I wwere fighting the Wei phoenix and it got stuck in a wall with its tail hanging out. We just nailed it and it couldnt fight back lol.

Had a worse bug with Sun Jian recently who got trapped about a mile above the stage in the tiger fight and only stalkerstones could get him down lol

I have a question reffering to the completion of the game..
Whats it best?
Do a new game with another force & complete it?
Or
Pick another character from the shrine from another force & build him up?

A file for each force is the only way to get all the movies. Otherwise you can build up characters from other forces late game and do the majority on one single file.

It just depends what you want and if you don't mind starting with weak weapons and items, as you would, creating a new file.

Yurisatan
21-05-09, 11:59 AM
So if i complete all 3 forces then i will have all the movies but on a separate file for each force right?

I finished the game story after 21 hours & it was surely fun!
Also id like to share that i used some chi skills that allowed me to complete ANY quest without any sweat (legends orochi 2 etc.)
Those chi skills where:
Control++
Immortal
Last stand+
Fury armor
With control your fury depletion shortens
Immortal you cant die while on fury (life gauge never reaches 0
Last stand+ you gain tremendous increase in attack when your life is near 0
Fury armor you cant be knocked down.
Only Seal (witch lu bu has) can ruin these up. But if u get Seal resist your fine.
What do you think of this combination?

keroro79
21-05-09, 03:54 PM
Sounds good. I'm trying to get all the items for immortal, think I am missing earth gift? When I get that I will try the beast missions.

Yeah the earth gift was a bit hard for me to find.
You will see that with these items you will cut pieces of the beasts life.
Just make sure you get elixirs cause when you lose fury mode you will die in 1 hit.

21-05-09, 05:04 PM
You can always try fury pills as these stop the fury from depleting temproarily.

Yurisatan
21-05-09, 05:39 PM
True they are better also you can buy that pill that lowers your hp but increases your attack. Basically with these chi skills you can die only if you lose your fury so hp doesnt matter.
I`ve tried with that pill & its even better!

Jarlino
21-05-09, 05:55 PM
Switch around immortal for Invert + (or ++ don't recall, and my psp's packed away for London trip.) since it'll increase your hp while in fury mode. ;)

Of what i can tell you its a hight grade material meaning that you can find it on higher star difficulty levels. Just tell me on witch chapter you are so i can look any quests near it that you can find this material.
Basically forget it i found it in Wei Chapter 5 Martial Trial . its a small map arena style, just kill some soldiers & they will drop it. hope you find it :)

You can get the item Tiger Soul from:
1. Battle of Jian Ye - Shu/Wei: Sun Jian (but since you're playing with Wu, your only choice is to unlock 5-star version which may take a while)

2. Chapter 6 - Black Storm - Gao Shun.

3. Upgrade Workshop to level 6.

Like I said, try level 20 to take him on. You'll have a better chance to get him and equip weapons with Arbor orb attached too if the woodstones aren't working.

Right now, I am using Sun Jian at level 15 in Chapter 2 atm on my Wu file that I completed with Sun Quan. Once I am done with Sun Jian, I am going to start start a new file for Wei using Zhang He and one for Shu with Zhuge Liang. ^^

I've had the game for exactly one week and was able to complete Wu's story, max out my first character, and clear all the side quests/duels that I've found so far. I only missed location 1-2 legends in Wu (Lu Xun & Huang Gai, I think)

LittleDragonZ
15-06-09, 08:30 PM
Yeah, Strikeforce is tough for single-player (made to use adhoc which is multi). But it's completable! It's extremely stylish, like DW6 which introduced kung-fu action cinematics, except this which blows it out of proportion. I'm sure you've seen the aerial combat and how hectic things can be. Playing it is much better than watching, too. All you've got to do, One-Eyed Legacy, is replay old missions to level a bit more and stock up on a few items, you'll gradually get more use to it and will then be able to clear it. It's just that the last chapter stages versus the other two Kingdoms, are INSANE! Seriously you will need the right setup and healing items!

I hope you decide to get and have fun. :)

Anyways I've been playing on my Wu file in order to play the other scenarios, unlock the music tracks, and get those movies. I've had a much easier time this time, just love buying the cheap Stalkerstones and Woodstones and launching them. I'm on course of completing it on just over quarter of the time I did on my Shu file, as well.

First with DW6...I got it when it came out, after they said that it was "next gen exclusive" and then they go ahead and port it for the PS2....and now this, the so-called "PSP exclusive" now being brought over to the consoles, most likely, due to the excessive amount of complaining and laziness of fans to just get a PSP to play it, it just really gives me the sh!ts this whole thing
