Tecmo Koei has confirmed that Dynasty Warriors 8 will be released in the U.S. on July 16, with a European launch due on July 12.

While a PlayStation 3-exclusive in Japan, the hack-‘n-slash title will be released on both PS3 and Xbox 360 in the west.

The localised version also includes English and Japanese voice acting, with subtitles available in English, French and German.

Dynasty Warriors 8 features a massive roster encompassing over 70 characters, and features a ‘What if?’ scenario where characters who would otherwise perish (based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms Chinese novel) manage to survive.

Also fresh this time around is the addition of Yue Jin and Li Dian as playable combatants, as well as the ‘Rage’ mode, which briefly beefs up an officer’s abilities.
