Don’t ask me why it’s “dim sums” – I was about to type sums as a sums up and it just turned it up like that. By the way, thanks for over 100 comments on Ask The Producer – Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends – it’s now closed and I’ve picked some of your questions and submitted to our team in Japan for the translation and I’ll be heading to there to get the producer to answer to you guys next week. I’m thinking to get him to sign something to give you guys from the contest too. I don’t have the concrete idea here, but it’s good to be finally able to do something for Dynasty Warriors fans in overseas, follow @tecmokoeieurope (for the official bot-talks-like “clean” updates) and @inspchin (for more extreme and extended “explicit” updates) from the TGS (Tokyo Game Show) 2011. I’ll update my tumblr pictures as well during my time there in Japan, check bit.ly/chinjapan – that’s if you’re interested about it.
I have to blog this before I leave you guys for a week here. First of all, the September’s DLC for Dynasty Warriors 7 (for both PS3 and Xbox 360). I’ve been told the information I gave is not enough, especially the BGM pack – this time I’ll list them all with some issues as well. As you know in previous the Weapon Rank Pack 1 has no “bow” in it and I’ve sent my request but it seems it didn’t get approved and the team has moved on to another project already so this time I must tell you earlier that the Weapon Rank Pack 2 has the same issue (which is without a “bow”) so 99% achievement would be the final result – just want to let you know before you consider to buy the pack, but the rest of everything is fine.
The 5th DLC of Dynasty Warriors 7 is coming on Xbox Live Marketplace on September 13 (both US and EU), PlayStation Network on September 13 in US and September 14 in EU.

I think that’s all for the Dynasty Warriors 7 DLC for September. So what is it to do with Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends now? Okay, Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends (for the PS3) official site is coming tomorrow, scheduled to launch. The URL would be –> http://dynastywarriors7.eu/xl/ (Yes, you’re the first one to know here. Link may not work until it’s uploaded.)
Closing Comment: One of my favourite bits in Dynasty Warriors 7 is at the camp where you can talk to the soldiers and they’ll tell you their life stories. Now, out from the game, if you have anything to share and want to tell me, always feel free to tweet @inspchin on Twitter. I listen and answer the best as I can – I think that’s also why I have more than 30K tweets already! Thanks for reading, have a nice day, yes you!
