Mountain Dew is tied to shooters like Halo and Call of Duty in North America. What’s the soft drink for killing armies of warriors in Japan? 7 Up, apparently. Tecmo Koei has a tie up that gives Zhao Yun an original costume designed to promote 7 Up to the extreme! OK, we get the joke. Zhao Yun is from the Shu Kingdom which typically wears green and the game’s Japanese title is Shin Sangoku Musou 7. Great, but do we really need 7 Up shoulder guards?
Tecmo Koei also set up a crossover with Japanese guitarist Tomoyasu Hotei who has one of his songs in Dynasty Warriors 8. Buy his album and you’ll get this Lu Bu costume.
