Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends (真・三國無双7 猛将伝, Shin Sangoku Musou 7 Moushouden) is the updated expansion of Dynasty Warriors 8.

A brief character poll was held up until August 29th. The three most popular characters, Zhao Yun, Wang Yuanji, and Xu Shu, receive new costumes based on characters from other Koei-Tecmo franchises as a first print bonus. All three ports have a bundle set with Dynasty Warriors 8 which is called Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition overseas and Shin Sangoku Musou 7 with Moushouden in Asia.


  • Every character gains a second EX attack.
  • Includes a revamped bodyguard system which allows players to bring up to three bodyguards.
  • Players have the option of manually activating Storm Rush attacks by tapping Square and Tri simultaneously.
  • A new option that enables players to view only the enemy general's health bar has been added.
  • The maximum level cap is now 150 instead of 99.
  • Includes new sixth weapons for every weapon type as well as a new "Ultimate" difficulty mode.
  • Enables cross-platforming for multiplayer purposes. Saved data from the original title can be transferred between any port of this game. Players who have purchased either version of the PlayStation 3 port in Japan can get the downloadable PlayStation 4 version of the game for a minimal fee of 1,000 yen. The offer is available a month within the new console's release date.
  • Downloadable content so far includes costumes, music, stages and weapons.


Story ModeEdit

As a callback to the first expansion of this type, developers have stated that Lu Bu is the "protagonist" of this port. He and his faction star in their own lengthy scenario for this title.

Various characters not playable or have a minor role within Story Mode star in an all new storyline of IF scenarios, where they are 8 stages long and focus on new battles or alternate versions of existing ones.

Free ModeEdit

The user interface has been changed. Optional mission objectives vaguely based on those found within the original game's Story Mode are available for players to complete. Bonus experience points and other rewards are granted based on overall ranking. A retry option has been added.

Ambition ModeEdit

Ambition Mode has been revised to be a quasi-war simulation feature with the overall goal being to unite Han China. This feature is unlocked once the original goal of constructing Tongquetai Palace has been achieved. Players can build their palace by building relations with the characters they have earned in their ranks. As relations improve, the player's territory can expand. When enemy territory is challenged, the player will need to defeat a required number of its soldiers and a "boss" type commander in order to claim it. Other revisions to the system have been noted, but not yet revealed.

Gems can be earned within this mode and used to customize weapons.

Challenge ModeEdit

Returns with an online ranking system. Achieving certain challenges may reward players with weapons. Each trial corresponds with the three weapon attributes, so it may be easier to equip a character with the proper trait. Furthermore, all five courses contain elemental gem power-ups named after them to assist the player.

  • Rampage - The goal is to defeat many enemies before time runs out. The elemental gems for this course increase the user's strength in proportion to the amount of foes slain.
  • Bridge Melee - Knock as many enemies off the edge as possible. The elemental gems for this course amplify the knockback effect caused by strong attacks.
  • Speed Run - Run to the goal as soon as possible. The elemental gems for this course prevent the user from flinching upon receiving damage.
  • Arena - Fight against every playable general until the player runs out of health. The elemental gems for this course prolong the buff effects of Switch Counters.
  • Inferno - Defeat every enemy present before time runs out. The elemental gems for this course trigger explosions to damage nearby opponents.
