KOEI TECMO DETAILS PLAYSTATION®VITA SPECIFIC FEATURES FOR DYNASTY WARRIORS 8: EMPIRES IN NEW TRAILER!
PlayStation®Store early-purchase bonus confirmed
Hertfordshire – 27th October 2015– KOEI TECMO Europe released today a bundle of new information and assets for the upcoming, digital only, PlayStation®Vita November 25th release of famed tactical action title DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires.
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 Stratagems, Dynasty Warriors 8’s special skills cards collection, allowing the player faster and more accurate control of the battlefield.
Since even the most powerful Warriors might need a helping hand, DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires encourages two-player ad hoc cooperative multiplayer, allowing nearby friends to join together and try to 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 pre-purchase the game via the PlayStation®Network within first month from release! Specifically, this ‘Special Edit Parts’ pack, includes equipment and costumes based on fan favourite 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!

About DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires
The most feature-rich and customisable ‘Empires’ title ever to be released, DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires, was originally released for the PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 and XBOX ONE earlier in 2015.
It included an array of new elements and upgraded modes, including a vast selection of 83 unique playable characters, the option to create original characters through the edit mode, as well as the ability to customize horses, banners and “normal” officers. Warriors were called to fight against not only against enemies but also forces of nature as the changing seasons and the passing of time alter fighting conditions on the more than 40 battlefields.
Additionally, the game’s Custom Scenario mode added the ability to control events across the vast Chinese continent, allowing players to adjust every last detail to form a brand new Three Kingdoms world.
Finally, in the ‘Empire’ mode, players could choose to adopt one of many distinct roles or to experience the epic history and its outcomes through a different methodology of warfare in replay.
