Dynasty Warriors is making its first appearance on a new-gen console with the release of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition next month.

The game arrives on March 25, alongside the PlayStation 3 version of the game, which lacks the "Complete Edition" subtitle. To make matters slightly confusing, however, the PlayStation Vita version of the game (which releases the same day) will also be called Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition. You can check out some screenshots for the PlayStation 4 version of the game in the gallery below.

Xtreme Legends is a re-release of last year's Dynasty Warriors 8 with new episodes for Lu Bu,  five new characters upping the total count to 82, more hypothetical scenarios, expanded Ambition and Challenge modes, and and an added Ultimate difficulty level.
