KOEI TECMO Europe today announced that DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires is now available digitally for the PlayStation VITA in Europe. Players will now be able to enjoy exhilarating Empires action on the go, using new intuitive touchscreen commands for more accurate control of the battlefield. A Special Edit Parts pack is available as an early-purchase bonus for those who purchase the game during its first month of release on the PlayStation Network.
The most feature-rich and customizable Empires title ever to be released, DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires includes an array of new elements and upgraded modes, including a vast selection of 83 unique playable characters, the option to create original characters through the Edit Mode, as well as the ability to customize horses, banners and officers. Fight not only against enemies but also the forces of nature as the changing seasons alter fighting conditions on more than 40 battlefields.
Since even the most powerful warriors need allies, the PS VITA version of DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires encourages two-player ad hoc cooperative multiplayer, allowing nearby friends to join together and survive the fierce battles of Empire Mode, or overcome the challenging scenarios in Free Mode.
Furthermore, the game is compatible with PlayStation TV, meaning gamers can enjoy the game on large screens. For those already in possession of DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Cross-Save and Cross-Play functionality is enabled across all versions, and content downloaded for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 can be downloaded on PS VITA version free of charge.
