Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends is coming out this week on PlayStation 3. So this is the final push to explain the main modes in the game – Legends Mode and Challenge Mode. Apart from the extra new costumes, new weapons and moves, this article will be mainly focusing on those 2 modes as mentioned.
You choose the officer (65 of them for you to choose) and play as and an Adjutant to support you. The officers you select will be made Prefect of the Castle Town. The atmosphere of the town will change depending on the Adjuntant selected. As you clear the stages with your officer, his/her abilities will increase. You may change your officer at any time in the Castle Town, and you can change your Adjutant by visiting the Counselor. Also, some characters have brand new costumes too!

As for the Castle Town, you can assign your selected officer as the Prefect. By clearing the stages within the game, a variety of trades and other people will begin to populate the town, changing its atmosphere and look. The atmosphere of the Castle Town is also influenced by who you choose as your Adjutant. Here’s the ATMOSPHERE with its details.
Desolate – The Prefect has just started ruling the town. There are few people and the Castle Town is in ruins.
Orderly – The Attack and Defense of your officer during battles in Legend Mode will increase.
Carefree – The price of items sold within the Castle Town will increase.
Friendly – Use one Adjutant for a long period of time to attain a Friendly atmosphere. You may receive gifts from your Adjutant.
There are more explanations about the Town Characters and how each of them functions, and these are the main ones.
Weapon Dealer – To help you to create your weapons.
Blacksmith – You can leave your weapon here by paying the fee, and your Seal Gauge will increase depending on your battle’s performance.
Counselor – Choose the officer to be your Adjutant. The goods within the town and your abilities in battle will differ fom what you’ve chosen.
Strategist – Purchase war manuals.
Merchant – Send the merchant to visit various locations to obtain rare treasures, guardian animals (to support you in battle) and weapons.
City Guard – You only talk to him when you’re ready to select a stage and go to battle.
One new thing for the Legend Mode is while upgrading your officer, you can acquire titles as well. Titles enable you to receive various abilities. They are specific to each officer and can only be obtained within Legend Mode. You are able to use the effects gained from these titles anywhere except in Challenge Mode. If you clear stages within Legend Mode, all of the officers will receive the title, “Lieutenant General,” and you will be able to check them within the Pause Menu by going to OFFICER INFO and checking TITLES. Afterward, if you complete the requirements listed under TITLES for each officer, then you will be able to receive even higher-ranked titles. Once you receive the highest-ranked title, you will receive elaborate garments that you can check under OUTFITS in OFFICER INFO, and your abilities will increase.
This mode allows you to compete in various challenges, each with their own rules. You can play with 1 player or 2 players offline and online.
– Try to defeat as many enemies as possible within the given time limit. The challenge will be complete if time runs out or if your officer loses all of his or her Health. If you use an EX Attack, then your Attack will be doubled for 30 seconds.
– Try and knock off as many enemies as possible from an elevated platform within the given time limit. The challenge will end if your officer falls from the platform or loses all of his or her Health. If you use an EX Attack, then your Defense will be doubled for 30 seconds.
– Try to reach the specified destination as quickly as possible. The challenge will end if time runs out or if your officer loses all of his or her Health. If you use an EX Attack, then your Speed will be doubled for 30 seconds.
– Try to defeat as many enemy officers as possible. The Health of your officer cannot be replenished. The more enemy officers you defeat, the stronger subsequent ones will become. The challenge will end if your officer loses all of his or her health. If you use an EX attack, then your Attack will be doubled for 30 seconds.
Yes, finally. I was about to blog about the DLC today but it seems it’s too fast for it as the game hasn’t really come out yet (or maybe some of you have already got it) – but as much as I can tell you now is in this picture. I’ll be back!
