Is there some sort of friggin' trick to it?
It's driving me friggin' insane.

Why are they afraid to add an older woman??

I love Kunoichi's second suit in the first game, I'd love that to be her actual costume!!
I hate Nenes mother figure too

EDIT:

If you dismiss bodyguards, do they keep their stats? Because I'd like to level up some new bodyguards, but I don't want the ones I've already levelled to uh, not be levelled anymore.
Yes They Keep The Stats

So big big Q for this good looking game (XL), is it in the Renbu system? and do they change it up in XL? 'Cause if it's not in renbu I'll be severly dissapointed cause it looks awesome, but don't know if I like the old system enough.

Haven't played it but my guess is that it runs off the old system like it's base game SW2.

It's still SW2, even with the XL form. That means no Renbu. All the old characters have their SW2 movesets, though everyone gets a new charge attack (C5 or C9, depending on what type of moveset they have).

The new Orochi game will still use the old system as well.

I seem to be the only one to likes the old system better :shock: its good to go back and play so many characters who at least appear to have unique weapon movesets to the rest of the character list. I am looking forward to seeing all the new charge attacks especially the more technical characters as they only get about 3 charge attacks in the first place

after playing XL for about 3 hours I must say Mr. Maeda rocks. Gracia is... SLOW and Kojiro got a revamp... again.

I wish they'd pick one version of Kojiro and stick to it. admittedly he's now unique rather than a souped up generic.

*Wishing there was a create mode in XL*

Seriously...why would you put it in Empires and leave it out of XL, or am I missing something?

Hey. Is it okay to discuss Samurai Warriors 2 Xtreme Legends here, or is there already a thread that I am missing?

A good point as there are no exclusive SW2: XL topics that i know of at least - the closest one i see is

http://the-scholars.com/viewtopic.php?t=17660&start=110

Maybe a mod should change the topic title to include XL as well as Empires to aviod confusion :D
