DW Quick Question Thread

Unread postby Lady Wu » Sun May 04, 2008 7:07 am

I don't think there's one such thread already...

But I have a quick question that doesn't go into any of the other stickies.

Anyway, is SSX called the "Bow Princess" or something along those lines in some DW game? In the Japanese versions of DW she's apparently named 弓腰姬 (Bow-hipped princess???), but I don't know if that name transferred into English.

(The name should have appeared even before DW6, before SSX changed weapons.)

I can only ever remember her being called Sun Shang Xiang, though I don't have a good memory for all of the ridiculous sobriquets they give some of the characters. I have a vague intimation that maybe some ending sequence somewhere may refer to characters by nicknames like that, but it doesn't ring a bell.

Boo.

Thanks anyway.

(I've found the names in some English websites, but I guess they're a direct translation from the Japanese DW rather than something from the localized DW.)

She's called it in Dynasty Warriors 4: Empires in the Profile section!! They're all given titles there!!
And again in Orochi by the Xiahou brothers in Wei Story mode!!

I recall being quite confused by the title when I first discovered it, she wasn't using any special bow moves at the time, unlike Huang Zhong and Xiahou Yuan, so it seemed to be a wierd name to distribute to somebody that was evidently as talented as everyone else with a bow!!
