Thank you. As a sidenote, you might want to resize your avatar (80 by 64 I think it has to be.)

Oh, thanks all.

In Taiwan, we can directly get the latest news about KOEI's games, and this infomation is translated from PS2 Famitsu or other sources. I'm amazing that the board have too less information about DW:E, so I post it.

And another good news : Today(2/11) the "Smurai Warriors" Japan version and Asia version are released in Taiwan, I'll post the gameplay feeling after playing, and wish my post can "拋磚引玉"(Tossing brick for attracting jade)... :P

I'm probably too late with this info, but the main site is updated. The CAW appears to be very detailed... The pictures deplict a girl using Zhang He's claws, a muscular (not fat) man using Meng Hou's gauntlets, and an advisor looking man using Lu Xun's daggers. To me, the CAW look more detailed.
