Dynasty Warriors 8 (真・三國無双7; Shin Sangoku Musou 7 in Japan) is the 8th installment in the Dynasty Warriors series. It was released in 2013 and features over 70 playable characters.


  • Dynasty Warriors 7's dual weapon system remains with various tweaks.
  • Mounting a horse is tweaked. When pressing L2, and keeping it pressed, the horse will run into the screen from behind the character and the character will automatically jump upon it when the horse is next to the character.
  • The terrain and weather affect clothing. Clothes can become wet and dirty.
  • The game supports an online ranking feature which shows the total K.O. count players have racked up while playing the game. The ranking system lists from 1 through 100.
