Tecmo Koei have just released a bit of information on the new playable characters in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends: Complete Edition.

In a press release issued earlier today, Tecmo Koei have given us some basic details on the new playable characters featured in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends: Complete Edition, which releases soon. There are five new characters detailed, with a trailer and a character model screenshot to go with each.

The new characters are as follows;

Lu Lingqi is a brave warrior princess and the daughter of Lu Bu.  She possesses great fighting ability much like her father, and uses her courage to stand in the front lines of any battle.

Zhu Ran is a young warrior who was promoted within the Wu ranks. Although young, he has distinguished himself by his involvement in the suppression of a group of mountain bandits, as well as during the Battle of Ruxukou.

Yu Jin is an invincible general who was promoted by Wei leader Cao Cao. He places a strong emphasis on military discipline, his unyielding personality causing him to be feared by friend and foe alike.

Fa Zheng is a strategist without morals and a key figure in Liu Bei’s efforts to take the land of Shu. He’s a brilliant tactician and previously pacified Yi Province with his strategies, as well as participating in the invasion of Hanzhong. He strongly believes in repaying his debts, whether it be for good or ill.

Chen Gong is an ambitious and humorous strategist for Lu Bu. He once served under Wei leader Cao Cao, but switched sides when he realized his ambitions would not be satisfied under the current regime. He is willing to make any sacrifice to see himself rise to the top.

…and here’s a look at their character models;

Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends: Complete Edition will hit North America on March 25, and is set to release in Europe a week later on April 4th. The Complete Edition contains both Dynasty Warriors 8 and Dynasty Warriors: Xtreme Legends in one neat little package.
