I’ve received some questions about how REMIX (“MixJoy” in Japanese version) works and here are some explanations about it. Basically for Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends, you don’t need a copy of Dynasty Warriors 7 in order to play it because they have different modes. For example, in Dynasty Warriors 7, you have STORY MODE and CONQUEST MODE, but in Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends, you have LEGEND MODE and CHALLENGE MODE. But if you have a copy of Dynasty Warriors 7 and want to carry the save data from there over to Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends, you can. This is what REMIX feature is about.
By using saved data from Dynasty Warriors 7, your officer growth, weapons, guardian animals, gold and more can be used in Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends. But in case of the skills, only the amount of Skill Points used to learn them will be carried over. The skills themselves will need to be relearned. When you start up the game, you will be asked if you wish to carry over your saved data, so be sure to select YES at that time.
If you load from the disc of Dynasty Warriors 7 via REMIX feature, you will be able to play its Story Mode and Conquest Mode within the game as well. For this, after selecting REMIX from the Main Menu, follow the on-screen instructions to insert the Dynasty Warriors 7 disc and load the necessary data – But then, I have to say please do not worry if you don’t have a Dynasty Warriors 7 copy, you can still play Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends. The REMIX is really just using the data that you already have from Dynasty Warriors 7.
Playing STORY MODE in REMIX – In Dynasty Warriors 7, you have the fixed characters to choose in order to proceed the story. So this time, if you’re using the REMIX feature to transfer the data from Dynasty Warriors 7 to Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends, you’re able to select your favourite office (any of them) to play the Story Mode. You can play this mode in 1-2 players. You can also play this mode online.
Playing CONQUEST MODE in REMIX – For this, you can select all the officers from the beginning. The Legendary Battles can be played with any character you choose. Within the towns, you can enjoy new events featuring Guo Jia, Wang Yi and Pang De (which are the 3 new characters added in Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends).
I hope this clears everything out regarding the REMIX features and as for DLC you’ve purchased for Dynasty Warriors 7, they can be used in Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends as well (costumes and weapons) and as for the extra stages you will need a copy of Dynasty Warriors 7 in order to play it. Talking about the new characters, I’ve also included the gameplay video of Guo Jia, Wang Yi and Pang De, so you can see how their moves are like.
Pang De – He’s the returning character from Dynasty Warriors 5. A former servant under Ma Teng and Ma Chao from Xiliang. Then he meets Cao Cao and sets forth as a warrior of Wei.
Guo Jia – This character was created due to the request from the fans’ votes on Famitsu (well this kind of thing only happened in Japan) – hope someday it happened in overseas here. He’s a strategist under Cao Cao and highly regarded by Cao Cao.
Wang Yi – Daughter of the noble Wang family. having lost her family in the battle at Xiliang, all she wants is Ma Chao’s head. Yeah, talk about the revenge…
