Now before you go and get all excited, it should be noted that back in November of 2017 Koei Tecmo brought Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires, Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate to the Nintendo Switch but never debuted a western release. This means that Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends could only be seeing a Japanese release, hope fully this is not the case as I'd assume many Switch owners in western markets would love to see these games on their hand-held console.

Jumping straight into what is included within the Complete Edition, from the announcement we will have scenarios, costumes and items. According to the announcement, the Complete Edition DX save data will be compatible with the other Warriors games that are on the Nintendo Switch. This means that players that already own Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires, Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate and Warriors Orochi 4 could receive bonuses upon purchasing the Complete Edition. The planned launch date in Japan for Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition DX is currently set for December 27th for both the physical and digital release.
