I think the game looks great. I am hoping for a nice new battle system myself. I really don’t want it to turn into anything like Warcraft... unless they do some serious work to improve the system.

And thank you very much for that translation; it was a quite baffling. :)

At least you don’t live in Europe. They probably won’t see any of them. :(

Living in America....I live in freakin England and we dont even have a release date for VII, think yourselves lucky compared to European Users.

One of the things that annoys me is when NTSC Users complain, sometimes we have to wait 6 months after the game is released in the states although I dont see why as the European Market is Just as Big as the States.

:evil: , Im alright, just need to chill out a bit....

As a matter of fact, im gonna trace this up if ever a euro release is possible.... :(

The Portraits look better each time, especially Cao Cao, he looks so much like a leader, and Sima Yi looks exceptionally evil than before...

Some portraits are remniscient from the live-action TV series, especially RTK5's portraits. As for RTK9, Sima Yi's portrait bears a strong resemblance to the actor who portrayed him.

Actually, for Koei and many other companies it is much less profitable. It is was as profitable as the states you would get the same releases. If there is anything companies know how to do it is count money.

True, but surely they would have a sales count of somesort, it just seems a tad unfair that we (Pal Users) miss out. :(

Dynasty Warriors 4 will probably have a major impact on Koei’s decision to release (or to avoid) future Romance of the Three Kingdoms releases in Europe. It is their most popular English game and I suspect they want to use it to build up interest in other Koei San Guo games.
