Not so long ago we were able to bring the announcement
that Dynasty Warriors 8
would be hitting the shelves this coming summer.
Today, the folks over at Tecmo Koei, who have never been shy with their media, have released another small avalanche of images featuring more of the 70 warriors to be found in the upcoming title. Incidentally, if you're reading this on your mobile, it might be time to stop before your data limit is exceeded.
Along with the images, we are introduced to two new warriors for the series, Lu Shu and Hang Dong. We also have a little snippet of information concerning the background of these new characters.
Lu Shu is a majestic governor-general who enjoys the trust of the people who surround him and acts as a capable diplomat seeking to put an end to the bloodshed of the war. He is a very reliable man, comfortable in his role as a successor to the teachings of Zhou Yu and Lu Meng and he always lends his excess resources to the needy in an attempt to fulfil his goal of surviving the turbulent times he lives in.
... Han Dang joins the forces of Wu. Although sometimes jealous of his overachieving fellow officers he is a gently humble and dependable leader and a quick and fearsome warrior.
Finally, we have some images of assorted warriors from the game and a number of battle scenes.Dynasty Warriors 8
will release on July 12th.
