Dynasty warriors 8 XL

Since the games been out a few months in Japan, they're undoubtedly already thinking about XL.

What would you like to see as the 'main addition' for XL.

Bare in mind we already have ambition mode, which is vaguely similar to a mix of conquest and ambition.

Personally, some sort of DW5XL system would be cool - being able to rank up your own created officer and have them leveled up from a peon.

More importantly would it be better to wait for the XL version rather than getting the current version? I have never gotten an XL version of the games since I started with DW3...

Created officers (CAWs) is Empires' thing now.

Hard to say but DW8XL is undoubtedly already currently in production. Though nothing has been released to the public yet.

Chen Gong is also likely to be a new playable character because of the Famitsu polls. Similar to how Guo Jia was eventually considered. More characters are also a possibility in the XL installment.

Seeing how we got legend mode already, we will most likely see more characters and a few battles connected to those characters, 6th (or 7th actually with DLC) weapons.


But anyway what I want is a true RPG mode (not cheap like conquest mode.) you chose your character and have a story to tell traveling an overworld from town to town complete with NOT random but still can reuse old map type side quest battles and all the RPG coverings.
Equip gear like a normal RPG instead of just weapons, have the old empires tactics as items, pay gold to build the army that follows you from escort officers to individual squads with lots of unit types. (I miss crossbow men, elite guards, mages, Nanman elites who were weak to ranged, female soldier types etc.)

The fastest way to ruin a series you like is to get to know the other people playing it.

If they did something like this then at least it would pretty much guarantee English VA's.
Let's face it, VA's for the english games isn't looking like a given anymore.

#1 priority: Available as DLC across both consoles. Seriously Koei. You've done it before, do it again.

Dong Zhuo / Lu Bu kingdom mode is the one thing I want. This should have happened way before Jin and I'd love to see the way Koei would handle a good story for the villains.

If Cheng Gong is a coming, Gao Shun and Lu Ling Qi need to be right behind him. Hell they can even through in Zang Ba or Chen Liang if they wanted. Dong Zhuo has plenty of guys that would be great as well, Xu Rong and Li Jue in particular.

i don't think i will get the XL anymore the last 2 xl (dw6 and dw7) din't like it much my top xl game will be the dw3xl that give you to play the other kingdom whit a good story mode and dw5xl when you could create a warrior and choose your side and also betray your kingdom to join the other one =) too bad they din't put the other force for it too.

Bottom line is it they don't try to do a good xl for this one i may just skip for empire

DW6XL doesn't exist? There was DW6 Empires and Dynasty Warrior Strikeforce that was based off of DW6 and DW6 Special which was a PS2 port with some characters decloned, but no DW6XL.
