Dynasty Warriors 8

Dynasty Warriors 8, the latest installment in the long-running series of beat’em ups loosely based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms, is being released in North America and Europe next month, and publisher Tecmo Koei has released a pair of new videos for the E3 occasion. These trailers also mark the debut of the game’s English dub.

The first trailer is of standard Dynasty Warriors action that briefly highlights the new fighters in each faction and lots of crazy fighting to the sounds of rocking guitar music:

The second video is a pure gameplay demonstration.  Time is spent with each of the new fighters to give a better idea of how each plays, including their powerful musou attacks:

Dynasty Warriors 8 will be released in Europe on July 12th, with the North American release following on July 16th.  It will be available on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
