Dynasty Warriors 3: Xtreme Legends (Fierce Warriors) is a Dynasty Warriors 3 game revision released in the United States and Japan (and also soon in Europe/PAL). This revision will have many new features and should be a great buy for anyone that loved Dynasty Warriors 3. On this page we will gather and present information on this upcoming release. My thanks to Sean Williams and Jonathan Wu for working with me to get the information on this page.

Dynasty Warriors 3: Xtreme Legends, (Fierce Warriors English translation), will be released in Europe (PAL) on either the fourteenth or the twenty-first of March. Various sources indicate both dates, so check on the fourteenth or fifteenth, and if you cannot find it, plan for the twenty-first.

Xtreme Legends (Fierce Warriors) – New Features

1) Diao Chan, Dong Zhuo, Lu Bu, Meng Huo, Yuan Shao, Zhang Jiao, and Zhu Rong are now playable characters in Musou Mode.

2) Each officer in the game now has a fifth weapon that can only be found in Expert difficulty. With fifth weapons a new element, Wind, is also introduced.

4) Beginner and Expert difficulties have been added.

5) 4 new challenge modes have been added to the game.

There are also two new commands; Support (attacks archers first) and Iron Wall (they form a defensive ring around you). There are now 12 different weapon options and five different strength levels (which they develop into) that come with new abilities. In one player Musou mode you may now choose to have an officer serve as your bodyguard (instead of the generic group). You may not equip them with weapons, but you may do a joint musou attack with them every 100 kills.
