With our resident Dynasty Warriors aficionado Robert Ramsey now officially taking time out to celebrate the season, the axe has fallen upon this puzzled author to try and make sense of the series’ latest trailer. Hot on the heels of the confirmation that PlayStation 4 entry Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition will be heading overseas, Koei has deployed a brand new trailer, which you’ll find embedded below.

The footage itself shows several overdressed warriors chopping through throngs of peons with oversized weapons. It looks like more of the same from where we’re sitting, but we’re sure that those well versed in the franchise’s intricacies will be able to pick out some of the differences. The title’s set to cut onto Sony’s next generation system on 22nd February in Japan, and sometime in the Spring overseas. We’re fresh out of puns, so feel free to insert your own here.
