I disagree. Games like Gengis Khan, Liberty or Death, Operation Europe (I might be wrong with the title), Bandit Kings of Ancient China, Rise of Phoenix, Kessen and of course Nobunaga's Ambition promote historical interest. Many people started with DW and then moved to RTK, novel and, eventually, history.

whaaaat no it's the very first thing they need to do.

I have an excel spreadsheet somewhere from like 15 years ago with all the generals and politicians from the CCP-KMT civil war, with their RTK stats and everything, it's ready to go, I can send it in when needed.

KOEI finally did something sensible and started confirming late era adds, particularly for Shu who always lacks in that department. Ju Fu (known as Gou Fu to those who played Legend of Jiang Wei), and Liu Yin, Hanzhong's greatest defender, were confirmed for ROTK14.

The "data collection" version (a form of demo intended to get player feedback to improve the AI, I believe) is releasing later this week, not sure if there will be an english version but leaning towards no since I haven't seen anything about it in english. I'm guessing it's the same as the demo shown at the Tokyo Game Show--a cut down 194/195 with just Cao Cao, Lu Bu, and Yuan Shu on the map.
Some officer stats have been shown off in preparation. Seems to be lead/war/int/pol/cha.
Lu Bu: 95/100/26/13/36
Diao Chan: 20/26/81/65/94
Gao Shun: 88/86/60/46/69 (literally all of the comments responding to the tweet seem to be about him, heh)
Yuan Shu: 44/65/68/15/42--I think he's actually gotten worse over the years.
Ji Ling: 78/83/51/48/60

They also show off what I suspect is the officer's formations. I can't read the names, but Lu Bu has 5 (one of them is gold so probably a special one, three are red), Diao Chan has 2, Gao Shun has 5, Yuan Shu has 5 (two of them are red), Ji Ling has 3.

I imagine we'll see some Cao Cao officers soon as well.
Edit: Yep. Cao officers:
Cao Hong: 79/81/44/35/54
Yu Jin: 84/77/72/57/56
Xun You: 73/26/94/88/86
Cheng Yu: 70/49/90/79/56

No reason to be surprised, that's about what it usually is.

We're getting videos of demo gameplay but they're in Japanese. I'll try to see what I can learn from one of them though.

Yeah, it's just been so long since i last played a RoTK, i just have this habit to edit his war to 88-89 if possible in every game i play. So it gets me everytime seeing how low his War koei has him at

p/s: i saw some duel clip and it was like - duel start - 2 officers exchange bouts for like 5 turns like 12-13. Without any interaction at all.
They better be hiding the real duel mechanic for the hype cause that's just lazy lol

249 scenario revealed! So we're officially going past Wuzhang.
Looks like it's DLC that will be available for free for a limited time.

Doesn't count as a real scenario if it's a day one scam, as video games often do. We're stuck at Wuzhangyuan.

There's a Japanese Demo on Steam. Prepare for loading screens and annoying trumpet music that makes you want to die... because I want to die just listening to it now.

There is a survey to fill out, which was translated over on tumblr.
