I’m your friends more than just a community manager for TECMO KOEI. While I’m in charge for this community, I don’t really see our audience as just the fans but my friends, I don’t see this community as a community but a family. This is also the reason why I’ve connected everyone with my real life and shared my experience and everything to the friends, and vice versa. Today, I’m not going to talk about myself here, but I have some Dynasty Warriors life recipe to share. I know most people love Dynasty Warriors, mainly because of the Three Kingdoms, the music (damn those awesome instrument works), the easy hack-n-slash game system even those bishies (pretty boys) – but today, I’m going to share something that I’ve learned from 2 people about the 7th installment of Dynasty Warriors (yes, that’s Dynasty Warriors 7), they’re Nina (from USA) and Alex (from Croatia), they have honestly told me about something that I didn’t notice before.
Nina told me one of the reason that got her hooked into Dynasty Warriors 7 is the town bit of the game, which you could walk around, talk to the soldiers and the soldiers / unknown generals shared his life story. For example, when you met the soldier in first chapter of the story, he just joined into the force and didn’t know what to do, then in few chapters later, he’s telling you he’s getting married, then after few more chapters, he’s telling you about his family. She thinks it’s really good to have the town part in Dynasty Warriors 7 so you’re not just running around, hacking and slashing all the way through.
I’ve also met Alex, he’s a big fan of Dynasty Warriors and he told me one of the reason he thinks Dynasty Warriors 7 is good is because of the cinematic story. He started to play Dynasty Warriors series long time ago, and because he already “made friends” and has some sort of virtual “relationship” with the Dynasty Warriors characters for a long time, by playing through the storyline and watching the “friends” died in the cut scenes (emotional) and couldn’t use them in the next level in Story Mode (more realistic) made him really sad. He was so excited about Dynasty Warriors 7 before it’s coming out and he really enjoyed the game too.
I think those are the main 2 new elements in Dynasty Warriors 7 that made people really happy (although some are still complaining about the Free Mode – I’ve already raised this to the team for your information) – but yeah, it’s really good to hear the feedback from you guys – no matter it’s good or bad, all are welcome. And now, it’s something related to E3 but still sticking to the Dynasty Warriors franchise.
Dynasty Warriors (working title) has been announced for PlayStation Vita in E3 2011 yesterday – any idea or suggestion on what name you would recommend? This version of Dynasty Warriors will allow you to use the PS Vita’s touch pad and sensor for intuitive controls and also allow you to connect together and enjoy an epic experience, and it allows up to 4 players co-op multi-player (online) – I think this is something new from us. Check out the trailers and the gameplay videos (the game is still in development) and I hope you think it’s something good. I personally can’t wait to see more from the team – this is developed by the “Strikeforce” team (if you could still remember) and I have a faith in them, I hope it could turn out to be something good!
Closing Comment: It looks fun but I personally don’t think those 2 new elements that my friends love would get into it, but we’ll see how this PlayStation Vita of Dynasty Warriors would turn out to be like.
