Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends coming to PCs near you!


A war is coming.

The last time I wrote about the PC version of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, it was under the assumption that it would probably never be localized for the west and resigned myself to possibly picking up a console version instead. Someone up there must have heard me (or possibly thousands of other people), because it's coming to the U.S. and Europe this May, the same month it's releasing in Japan!

Requiring Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (gotta face reality, XP users), DW8: Xtreme Legends will come with customizable graphics like texture quality and even character model quality -- so you can make it look as pretty as the PS4 version, or as close to Dynasty Warriors for the PS2 as you possibly can, if you're into that sort of thing.

In the above screenshot you'll see a menu screen of graphical options like Graphic Detail, Dynamic Shadows, Shaders, Fog Distance, and Post Effects, in addition to the ones already noted.

Below you'll see two screenshots: the one on top with low settings, and the one underneath with high settings. Note the number of enemies in the background, texture quality, and shadows (or lack of them). All of this is achievable and more, with the customizable might and freedom of the PC!

It seems that Koei has been thinking about releasing on the PC in the west for quite some time. If DW8: Xtreme Legends does well here, could it open doors for their Tecmo brothers to release Dead or Alive 5 on the PC? Tecmo Koei Gods, hear me!
