Game Overview

Dynasty Warriors 8 is the eighth main installment of the Dynasty Warriors franchise, and is developed by Omega Force and published by Tecmo Koei. Although it is a PlayStation 3 exclusive in Japan, it was released on Xbox 360 as well in the rest of the world.

The game takes place in the Three Kingdoms era, and follows the events of the kingdoms of Shu, Wei, Wu and Jin. Pitting one character against thousands of troops, it incorporates some new features, such as new combat elements (Storm Rush, Rage and Switch Counter), as well as features that were present in older titles. The game boasts the highest amount of playable characters in the franchise, with a total of 77.

Thanks to all the other ports to Vita
and PS4, this is actually closing the
gap to DW7, currently sitting at 780k.
Still short by about 270k, but there
have been a hell of a lot more musou
titles between 7 and 8 than there were
between 6 and 7, which so it may be down
to saturation
