v2 Topic: http://s13.zetaboards.com/koeiwarriors/topic/6986839/

Info Thread is available, and there is also a section for the most recent information news below the main post, so make sure to read those before posting here.
http://s13.zetaboards.com/koeiwarriors/topic/6986755/
The latest scans will always be posted on the KOEI Warriors Facebook Page so be sure to always check there also.

Just realized that both V1 & V2 took only about 20-21 days aka. 3 weeks to exceed 250 pages, and thus increasing the need to refreshing the topic for keeping things tidy. If this pace keeps up, then we might end up reaching V6 topic by the time the game is released on end February... :ph43r:

Good discussions are welcome, but please refrain from posting one-liners too much. It is also helpful if detailed discussions on a certain character can be redirected to their respective character topics. Thank you for your attention. :)

Leaker grossly overexaggerated Bao's 'erotic' ness... unless Japan has completely different ideas on what erotic is.

It's okay. I've seen far, far more skankier outfits.

But... I prefer her DW7 appearance. *shrugs*

I kinda figured her outfit would be something like that, though I kinda thought there'd be some cuts or whatever around her torso, so she wasn't that covered up, but I generally like it...dem melons.

But...dat hair.... :crazy:

Haha, I would have thought Bao was quite covered compared to some Japanese gaming girls.

Anyway, so the next batch, although I am absolutely dying to see Yuanji, Chunhua and Sima Yi, if I saw them all at the same time, it would leave me no one to get excited about anymore :(
But I'm guessing it would go like this-
Sima Yi, Chunhua, Zhao, shi and Yuanji..maybe?

knowing Japanese taste, maybe that's their definition of erotic: anything that shows cleavage and that can give a person a bloody nose

@Sun Bai Hu - if you're reading this then yes there is striking similarities from Nene lol thankx for that haha

I'm thinking they won't reveal the whole Sima clan at once...I don't know why, but they just don't seem like they would. I have a feeling they'll reveal Sima Yi pretty early, being that they revealed Cao Cao, Sun Jian, and Liu Bei in their first respective batches. Sima Yi, being the leader of Jin might get the first reveal for Jin, and hoepfully alongside Chunhua...cause I am very curious as to what they do with her.

Particularly exited for Sima Yi of course, see if those Wired Claws are in fact back. Also be good to see Zhuge Dan and the new characters. Once these are done I suppose the ones I'll be waiting for eagerly are Taishi Ci, Xu Shu and of course God Lu Bu and the beautiful Diaochan.

So Guan Ping was revealed. My third favorite! Amazing.

Guan Ping looks amazing, simply awesome. I love the hair that they kept; his best, better than DW5 even. Makes him look like a badass. Now for KOEI to give him justice in DW8 story mode, or well, I'd be pissed. Looks fierce as hell though in his scan.

Guan Suo? Eh, I like him and think he deserves to be in the game ( since he was in the novel. Not trying to start a flame war here btw, so don't bash. ) but I liked his DW7 uniform better, since it looked more kung fu like.

Bao Sanniang looks great. I'm digging her hair down like that and the two-torn cape she's got going on. Her overall look looks wayyyy better than DW7 and I'm loving how they're handling her. Hopefully they do this for the rest of the new returnees. Not to mention they enlarged her breasts.

Glad all Guan's are revealed, I do like the Guans but not enough to get excited about. The Ma family on the overhand is one I want to see! And maybe see if Ma Teng will be included in this game? Doubtful of it though as he wouldn't be that important in the game...

Speaking about holiday season, just found out that next Dengeki issue will be out on 27 Dec (12/27発売). Well Japan doesn't quite have Xmas holidays, but they do certainly have New Year holidays.

Next week's Famitsu also seems to have a 2012 recap that's divided in two parts, so most likely Famitsu will be published up to 27th as well.

If this is the case, hopefully we'll still have ample time to have both (possibly) Jin major & minor batches to come at the end year, and then let the people over there have their holidays in the new year week. :)

I'm hoping maybe they'll do a Wei/Jin combination reveal. I'm dying to see what they do to Jia Xu, Pang De, Xu Huang, Deng Ai, Zhuge Dan, Zhong Hui, Wang Yuanji, and Guo Huai. Everything about their DW7 appearances where absolutely awesome to me. I'm hoping they're able to keep their style without making to big of drastic changes. Especially around the hair...

I'm probably one of the few people who's indifferent about Zhang Chunhua but I have a feeling she'll be inheriting Sima Yi's claws. I'd actually like to see Sima Yi with a crystal ball weapon. Something along the lines of SCV's Viola's moveset.

I feel like Xingcai should have been shown though, it's a shame she hasn't now I kinda feel she'll be left to be Liu Shan's bodyguard only again which would suck a little bit. I would like Ma Teng one day but I don't think it's his time yet, should be soon though as there are a lot of 'Others' characters who cause Cao Cao stress such as Chen Gong, Zuo Ci and Ma Teng. Poor Cao Cao everybody hatin' on him.

I'm more than certain we'll get Jin revealed. It's KOEI's big reveal basically imo, the one people really want to see, so they'll def. give it to us before the Holidays as a Christmas/New Year present. It's not an offshoot to see it there, so I'm positive we'll see Jin.

So, does that mean we'll receive a major batch still next week then with a major and a minor on the week of the 27th. I'm a little confused.

My guess would be:
20 Dec - Jin major batch
27 Dec - Jin minor batch
3 Jan - New Year holidays
10 Jan - New major batch?

Don't take that as a certainty though. You have been advised. :rolleyes:

I can't see Xiahou Ba moving to a different faction tbh, he's probably gonna stay in Jin with Guo Huai :3

Yeah with Jin being as slim as they come with current characters and possible character adds, they may just need to take what they can get.

theres nine weeks between january and february not to mention another two week for december, not counting the probably holiday, so around 11-12 weeks left for reveals so saying minor batches = 3-4 characteres and major batches = 6-9 that would mean there will probably be 8 or so more minor batches and 3 or 4 major batches.

I also expect jin next week, and the new other reveals will likely come the week after.

Thank you, I suppose that makes sense as well. Seems very weird to leave a Han Dang reveal all on its own after the New Year, very weird indeed :blink: .

Balls no. Not in his current position. The claws will not befit him at all. He is a ruler now, or atleast functions as one. Keeping the War Fan with an alternated moveset will be fine, however I still pray for a Bladed Fan...

for me, it felt like a forced add for Xiahou Ba in Jin. read his bio and was surprised to know that he hates Guo Huai with a passion lol I just don't see his accomplishments in Jin as importance other than a few expeditions with Guo Huai. :/

edit: :o WOW someone who actually hates Sima Yi's claws? I must be dreaming lol

There are multiple people who think this way. It was perfect on DW6 Sima Yi, we saw a very dark and sinister side of his, also killing Cao Cao. He still is a cunning man, but he did not have the evil role in DW7, more likely the one who guided 'his force' to the point of conquest.

I can see Chunhua with the Wired Gloves. Give her the more evil and cunning feel. I bet Sima Yi would love that in his wife. ;)
