Koei Tecmo has unveiled that their upcoming strategy title Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden will utilise the save data of previous games to grant bonus costumes.

Eiketsuden  save data bonus

Players who have save data from a previous game can unlock that games costumes for the characters in Eiketsuden right from the start. PS Vita users will need save data from either Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends or Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires. As these are the only titles available on Vita it unfortunately limits the amount of bonuses that Vita players can unlock compared to say PS3 users. Promisingly though Vita players will hopefully (though not confirmed) still be able to access these older costumes by completing the game which is the normal way to unlock these costumes without the save data.

Dynasty Warriors: Eiketsuden releases on 3rd of August in Japan for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. There has been no word yet on a western release though almost all other Dynasty Warriors titles have found their way west at some point. Stay tuned to The Vita Lounge for more information as we get it.
