The video showcases the new installation continuing in the same superhuman fighting style DW fans have become accustomed to over the years. This overzealous trailer features a few of the 70+ characters mowing through dozens of enemies simultaneously, new weapons and musou abilities, and even a flying horse. Check it out at the end of this article.

DW8 also introduces a few other abilities, including the Variable Counter system, Storm Rush, and an Awakening technique. Variable Counter allows the player to counter against an enemy and switch to a different weapon; Storm Rush lets the player overcome an enemy's guard with a series of rapid attacks; and Awakening unlocks a more powerful version of the normal musou, True Awakening Musou.

Dynasty Warriors 8 will release in Japan as Shin Sangoku Musou 7 on February 8, 2013, for the PS3, and a US release date is as of yet unconfirmed.
