Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends Discussion Thread!!

Discussion of other Three Kingdoms games (e.g. Destiny of an Emperor and Dynasty Tactics) and other games by Koei (e.g. Samurai Warriors).

Hmmm... pretty cool. Haven't been so up-to-date with gaming news over the last two weeks so this is news to me too. Glad Katsuie is finally playable. Maeda Toshiie huh? Well glad he made it without the over exaggerated design I thought they might have done for him (An Inu helmet with outlandish kabukimono outfit :lol:). He actually turned out looking pretty good. Still this guy is supposed to be Keiji's uncle yet he looks relatively not much older. Though they could've went with his historical straight-headed spear type weapon I'm kinda glad they decides to change that.

I am pumped about this. New characters, new weapons for playable Katsuie, CAW mode, PS2... almost perfect. The only thing that will make this a 100% perfect announcement for me is if we get some costume changes.

EDIT: Never played Capcom's game, so I don't know much or care much about Toshy's depiction. I'm just glad to have him in the game. And I'll be glad to be able to play as Katsuie and (probably) Kojiro.

I hope the XL integration into the normal game is done well (i.e. will the Katsuie in the normal stages be replaced with the new beefy axe-bearing Katsuie?).

I also hope they tweak the CAW system, flesh it out some, give us more control.

I also want costume changes, even if it's just palette swaps.

Couldn't they wait a bit - I'm still far from being bored with DW5, DW5E, SW2, DW5Xl and SW2E :cry: And I haven't even tried Orochi yet :cry:
Of course I'll buy it :)

Where did you guys get the information on CAWs? I haven't heard anything about that. :/

Erm, yeah I'm wondering that myself, the only information I can find on it is a small article in Wikipedia, and that tells next to nothing (surprising)...I'm confused.

Its just people guessing thats all. Some member called Neo Juste Belmont has come up with this theory at KW:

''Looking at SW1XL, I think if there will be a brand new female and Kojiro is added, this new female will be Matsu.

Let's look at the additions of SW1XL...

NPCs turned playable: Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Imagawa Yoshimoto
Brand new characters: Honda Tadakatsu, Inahime (Dad and daughter)

And if the prediction is right... in SW2XL...

NPCs turned playable: Shibata Katsuie, Sasaki Kojirou
Brand new characters: Maeda Toshiie, Matsu (Husband and wife)

See what I'm getting at?''

The only reason I am guessing about CAWs is because there is already a barely functional CAW system implemented in SW2:E. All they have to do is transplant it into SW2:XL.

Matsu would be a most welcome addition along with her hubby if so.

I wouldn't jump to conclusions and think they have CAWs yet though. For all we know, this Xtreme Legends could be far inferior to its Dynasty Warriors 5 counterpart. :/
