Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends gets a next-gen comparison video


Lu Bu, now with slightly more eyebrow

We're doubling down on Dynasty Warriors news today, though this time it isn't Gundam. There's something about smashing through endless hordes of mindless peons while listening to ethnic hair-metal that I find so very rewarding. I realize, of course, that I'm in the minority, but that won't stop me from throwing wads of cash at Tecmo Koei every time they release a new Dynasty Warriors title, and this time is certainly no exception.

Today, the company released this nifty trailer to highlight some of the improvements being made to the upcoming PlayStation 4 release of Dynasty Warriors 8 Extreme Legends. In addition to increasing the number of troops on the battlefield, tweaks have been made to the lighting, character models have been given a slight face-lifts, and the Gaussian blur is more pronounced -- though whether that last bit could be considered an improvement is a matter of debate. Personally, I like the changes; I just wish there were more. That won't stop me from buying it, of course. The remote-play functionality for Vita owners is enough to sell me on it alone. I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks of the comparison, though.
