We announced earlier in the week that Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete DX Edition would be hitting the Nintendo Switch this November in Japan, though soon after got word that the title will also be making it’s way to the West. Known as Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition over in Western regions, the game will feature every piece of content Dynasty Warriors 8 XL Complete did along with all DLC (except some sponsored outfits, for licensing reasons).
This will be the most complete package of Dynasty Warriors 8 (don’t let the prior “Complete” version’s moniker fool you), and you’ll be able to take it on the go wherever you please or at home on the big screen TV.
It has also been revealed for all those who have purchased and played Warriors Orochi 4 on the Switch, you’ll get a Save Data Import bonus (much like how most prior games have offered), which will grant them access to specific outfits for your characters.
Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition will arrive on Nintendo Switch December 27th, and will be digital only. For the first week from it’s release it’ll have a 10% discount in all regions, so may be wise to take them up on that offer!

KOEI Tecmo have since confirmed the game will be arriving in both EU and NA on the same date as Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition, but digital only.
With how successful the Nintendo Switch has been, and the amount of support KOEI Tecmo has been throwing it’s way (at least in Japan), it comes as no surprise that now another one of KOEI Tecmo’s older titles has been announced for Nintendo’s hybrid console. Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition DX (wow that’s a mouthful) will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch December 27th in Japan.
The game which will feature the usual Switch additions such as single joycon two player and the like will also include all released DLC for both Dynasty Warriors 8 and Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends. This will be an even more complete edition than the current “complete” edition is.
However don’t get your hopes up for seeing this title come out in the West. We didn’t receive any western releases for their triple Warriors titles they released last year – Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires, Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate – and this will likely be of the same tale. Thankfully the console is region free so you are able to import it and play without issue.
If you have the three mentioned titles already along with Warriors Orochi 4 (JP version), you can use their save data to gain bonuses within Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition DX, though what these bonuses will be is still yet to be revealed.
Below you can check out some screenshots of the game in action on the Switch:
