KOEI TECMO Europe released today a bundle of new information for the upcoming, digital only, PlayStation Vita title DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires.

Specifically, players will be able to enjoy exhilarating ‘Warriors’ action on the go, using new intuitive touchscreen controls for actions such as calling their faithful steed or activating the powerful ‘Rage’ state! The touchscreen can also be used to select and activate Stratagems, Dynasty Warriors 8’s special skills cards collection, allowing the player faster and more accurate control of the battlefield.

Since even the most powerful Warriors might need a helping hand, DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires encourages two-player ad hoc cooperative multiplayer, allowing nearby friends to join together and try to survive the fierce battles of ‘Empire Mode’, or overcome the challenging scenarios in ‘Free Mode’.

Furthermore, the title is compatible with PlayStation TV, meaning gamers can enjoy the game on large screens. For those already in possession of the PS3 and PS4 versions, Cross-Save and Cross-Play functionality is enabled across all versions, and content downloaded for the PS3 and PS4 can be downloaded on the PS Vita version free of charge.

Lastly, Koei Tecmo announced downloadable early-purchase bonus content, available to those who pre-purchase the game via the PlayStation Network within first month from release! Specifically, this ‘Special Edit Parts’ pack, includes equipment and costumes based on fan favourite Koei Tecmo characters: Guo Jia and Guan Yinping from Dynasty Warriors 8, Date Mashamune from the (japan-only) social game ‘Nobunyaga no Yabou’, and a very special Tenko costume from the sensational demon-hunting action title Toukiden!

DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires releases November 25th on PS Vita.
