    The Vita version seems to have choppy frame rates… I hope they fix this with a patch later…

      Youve already played this game??? Amazing, and here I was thinking it wasnt out yet, cos I know you cant possibly be using the trailer that doesnt even use a real vita as a point of reference right.

      • Sardorim

        Pretty sure they had a trailer/gameplay vid with Vita gameplay. It was pretty bad compared to the PS3 and PS4 versions.

    I can’t wait to hold the ultimate mode in my hands and probably get destroyed. <3 …. t.t

    The Bromance is already strong in this game. It could go beyond with What IFs.

    • fairysun

      Commencing rule 34 !

    • Sardorim

      Zhu Ran will be so torn when/if they add in Sun Ce’s daughter, Lu Xun’s wife, and Lu Kang’s mother – Sun Shi.

      • Ixbran

        its actually been revealed that Zhu Ran will serve as Lu Xun’s rival in the series, rather than being his friend. Instead of being lu xuns friend, hes going to be portrayed as Sun Quans childhood friend.

        me thinks Koei is going to make it seem like sun Quan has an unofficial sworn brotherhood with him, Zhou Tai, and Zhu Ran constantly hanging around each other.

    What if scenario:
    Lu Lingqi got married to Yuan Shu’s son.
    So, in turn she can help Lu Bu while surrounded by Liu Bei/Cao Cao coalition army in Xia Pi and obliterated their army.

    After that, Lu Bu wants the throne for himself and Lu Lingqi has to fight against Lu Bu, Diao Chan and Zhang Liao.

    • Sardorim

      I don’t see that happening. DW6′s Lu Bu and Diao Chan’s story modes ignored the marriage entirely. Now that Lu Lingqi is playable I don’t see Koei entertaining that thought as it could hurt Lu Lingqi’s popularity and her selling power if she’s married into the Yuan Family. It would also hurt Lu Bu’s badassery by relying on Yuan Shu in his What If.

      I don’t see Lu Lingqi fighting Lu Bu, Diao Chan, Zhang Liao, and Chen Gong. Let alone siding with Yuan Shu. Especially when Yuan Yao is a generic and the marriage proposal was made without her consent.

      Besides, why would she help Liu Bei/Cao Cao try and kill her father?

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    If that is Mt. Dingjun, Huang Zhong better still have his share of spot light if Xingcai is being thrown in.

  • Sardorim

    Hah, amazing. For those that don’t know Wen Yang defeated over 100 Sima-Wei Generals at the same time when he was only 18. Only Deng Ai was able to fight him to a draw. So it’s interesting they have Wen Yang protecting Deng Ai from Zhong Hui’s plot to have him captured so that start he, Zhong Hui, can start his rebellion with Jiang Wei.
