Full English details on DW8 cross save functionality (PS3/PS4/Vita)

Much like all other regions that have this game, it'll be possible to use the cloud for save synchronization. Here's a neat image Tecmo Koei Europe tweeted a few hours ago to explain how it'll work specifically for DW8 (since we're not getting Complete Edition on PS3).

Basically, you can move your progress between all versions via the cloud.

Anyone know if I transfer from DW8 (PS3) to DW 8 (PS4), it'll unlock trophies on PS4 (those that I already got from PS3). If it doesn't work, it would be a chore to replay everything even when your characters are maxed...

and correct me if I'm wrong...you CAN'T transfer from PS4 to PS3 right?

If you mean PS4 DW8+XL to PS3 DW8XL or PS3 DW8+XL, you can transfer, there is a limit of one transfer per day though.

DW8 and DW8XL have completely different sets of trophies, there is nothing to carry over.
There is no combined DW8+XL trophies for PS4 version, only the XL trophies.

Wait, I thought the Complete version (PS4) includes BOTH DW8 and DW8 XL? I know that it won't unlock for XL obviously but for the vanilla vers yes?

And same question for PS4 to PSVita..will trophies carry over?

Thanks

Game - all stages in the original game are available in the complete edition.
Trophy - only XL trophies are available in the complete edition, you cannot unlock any trophies of the original game.

PS3 and Vita shares the same trophy set, I don't see it for PS4 (although since XL saves can transfer between consoles, you can still unlock the same trophy).
