Tecmo Koei has today revealed some exciting new details about their upcoming strategic action game Dynasty Warriors 8. First and foremost, the game will be available in three different versions. These include a regular retail edition (7,560 yen or about $94), a digital download edition (6,600 yen or about $80) and a limited Treasure Box edition (13,440 yen or about $160). The Treasure Box edition will include a copy of the game, the game’s soundtrack, a “3D character crystal” and an artbook/strategy guide penned by developer Omega Force.
Additionally, first print copies of the game will come with downloadable costumes for Zhao Yun and Sun Shangxiang. These threads are from Romance of the Three Kingdoms 12 and they’re pictured below. The other big reveal is the game’s Japanese release date. Dynasty Warriors 8 will be available exclusively for the Japanese PS3 on February 28th, 2013. This confirmed Japanese release date brings us one step closer the game’s practically assured North American release.
