I'm hoping that they give Zhu Rong back her boomerang, and Cao Ren his buckler blade as well. It seems like they're already de-cloning characters, but we haven't really seen what everyone else will be getting, so it's too soon to tell.
Both Cao Ren and Zhurong already got their weapons back :D
Those were only DLC weapons in 7, though. I'm saying them getting those as default weapons this time around.
It is their default weapons in Empires
Oh! I didn't know since I haven't seen DW7:E gameplay vids yet >.< I've been out of the loop for a while, so you'll have to forgive me. Speaking of Dynasty Warriors 8...

Do you think all the characters from Dynasty Warriors 7: XL (Guo Jia, Pang De, Wang Yi) will be returning as well as Xu Shu?
Koei said there will be not cut characters.
So yes, all of them will be in.
And it seems Zuo Ci will be returning as well.

Oh, wow! That is certainly great news :D! And the Great Crane Sage is returning? Well, he'd better have his card set again if he does! Oh, and someone said earlier that the leaks were already confirmed? How do we know that's true if the game isn't even close to being finished yet?

Because everything that has been confirmed was accurately in the leaks so far, and Koei themselves have asked the forum to stop leaking that info

Zhen looks so beautiful. I'm assuming this leak is becoming more credible though.

Just to let you know, 'cause it seems you missed some leaks :
Artworks of Zhen Ji & Cao Pi were leaked a few monthes ago.
And they really match the real design of the two characters.
So the leaked characters list seems quite possible now.

In case you missed it, the list is as follows :
Wei : Li Dian & Yue Jin
Wu : Lu Su & Han Dang
Shu : Guan Xing, Zhang Bao & Guan Yinping
Jin : Jia Chong, Wen Yang & Zhang Chunhua
Others : Zuo Ci & more.
And at least two more characters in XL.

And who knows...maybe even more !

Wasn't the person who revealed the character leaks and the one who said Zuo Ci was returning/that sun quan had a serrated blade two different people? I thought the character list (Lu Su, Wen Yang etc) was confirmed but not the Zuo Ci one? Thought I'd ask just in case as I'm not sure and got a bit confused ><

I wonder where these leakers are getting their info. Perhaps they're somehow close to Tecmo-Koei? It seems nowadays the rosters of games are getting leaked way before they're released. Oh, Age of Technology...

I hope this game has Dynasty Warriors 4 stage layout, where you play as a certain kingdom but you choose the progression of it and choose the character you want to use. OH, and I also hope that those interchangeable cutscenes from 4 return as well. I don't think they will, though.

Story mode allows you to pick one of a number of characters for a stage like DW5XL legend mode, so for Hei Fei you can choose between Zhang Liao, Yue Jin and Li Dian. There are also what if stages in between. So sort of DW4ish style. There might be some progression to it as well, if you play as such and such a character you might unlock a different path and battle but not sure on that.

Ah! And you'd see the selected characters perspective on the stage as well. I like the sound of that, since it changes things up a bit.

PS3「真・三國無双7」
 「曹丕」(神奈延年)、「甄姫」(住友優子)、「夏候淵」(徳山靖彦)が新たに紹介されている。
Oh, seems like the 3 new returning people were introduced in Dengeki rather than Famitsu, so I don't know if the usual scanner will be able to get that magazine too or not since he usually gets Famitsu more... :/

In any case Dengeki is also officially published on Thursdays, so perhaps the official site will be updated too tomorrow.
Well, this guy here claims to have the scans ready. The mag in the center is Dengeki right?
Assassin Creed 3 cover... yep, that's definitely this Dengeki issue. :)

>鞭せん|って武器は
>矢に変形する特殊な鞭  (矢じゃなくて由美のまちがい?
>殴るのも射撃もできる

So Xiahou Yuan's weapon is a whip/cane/rod that can transform to a retractable bow
Thanks BlackKite for the scans and Faichaimond for the info on the Leakers. Zhenji :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: Beautiful Best outfit hope her 2nd outfit is not colour change. Also is that a new EX attack for Zhenji :OMG: Man that has to hurt reminds me of Dong Zhuo EX attack it going to be a Massacre :ph43r: . So happy about Cao Pi DW5 returning.

Oh BlackKite any news on the extra info on @smusou7 I heard we have reached the 3,777 mark, Will it be tomorrow on DW8 main site?

I don't mind if Guan Xing and Zhang Bao get their father's weapons but I would like different weapon skins and movesets.

Hmm, that's a point actually. What if they decide to go with the historical account for Zuo Ci, where he lives to around 300 AD and served Wei?

That would be... different I suppose, but I doubt they'll do it.

Even in the fictional acoount he stayed with Cao Cao for a time, personally I believe he'll keep his grey attire which I hope is white now that Lu Bu is black and no longer white palette. Zuo Ci's alt will likely be Blue.

These reveals are nice, but I'm really focusing and a bit worried about Story mode, I hope it's like someone said, you get to pick generals that were in that stage and etc. I'm glad they have free mode, but I hope they don't limit the story mode like DW7.

Also I really forgot how to change my avi and sig, any one mind PMing me a website or something?

It was confirmed today that the story mode you can pick numerous characters per stage depending on the stage. And the what if missions were confirmed last week. So no need to worry :) Like the example blackite gave 'Hei Fei you can choose between Zhang Liao, Yue Jin or Li Dian'

Good to know, and thanks for the info.

I have something to say about characters.
Wei: Both generals sound about right because of He Fei.
Wu: Not sure about Han Dang, but Lu Su sound reasonable because the gap between Zhou Yu and Lu Meng
Shu: Guan Yinping.... I'm not sure if she have a history beside Sun Quan-Guan Yu argument... I perfer Ma Yunlu, but she doesn't have much history either.
Jin: I was hoping of Sima Jin Sima Yan to unify the three kingdoms, but Wen Yang makes it up.
Others: Not sure...yet

I can picture Zuo Ci's outfit, he has an Taoist outfit but his facial feature should be something similar to his DW5 and koei hould change his moveset and give him another EX weapon.

Han Dang is for inevitable Cheng Pu add in XL I personally believe, also has connections to early period and saves Huang Gai's life. Participates in many battles. It's a marketing scheme. Guan Yinping I can imagine with a naginata probably done to simply tie up the Guan family and 'another', later-Shu female officer :wacko: . And, it's Sima Yan not Sima Jin ;) .

The leaker said Zuo Ci's weapon is a card deck.
But again, it's just a leak.

At the moment, we already have 5 new EX weapons announced in DW8.
So we reached 60 weapon types (55 weapons in DW7E + 5) , for 68 characters at the moment. (66 returning from DW7 + Li Dian & Yue Jin)

Thank you for the post.

Oh well I be damn, no worries :2up:

Now I'm hyped a bit more for the game, gotta see if there are many clones, however because I see a lot of characters getting unique weapons, I doubt it will be.


2 post aboves makes me even more hyped lol.

The problem I see with Lu Su is that the gap he is supposed to fill in Wu's story is... well, quite short and not fleshed out enough.
They usually have Chibi and Nanjun and then... pretty much nothing until Hefei, which is in 215. And Lu Su dies two years later. They'd have to expand the Jingzhou conflict for him. Or they'll just toss him as a playable choice in a few battles like it's probably going to happen with Li Dian (though he gets his time to shine in Hefei).
