Hi guys! So, we had this discussion a while ago and the dev team has decided to have some changes on the character names for the titles containing Dynasty Warriors characters going forward. This will apply to Dynasty Warriors Next and Warriors Orochi 3, and to any Warriors titles that come after them.
The team has finally decided to write out the female names properly, which in most cases, means only a single word, although there are a few exceptions. For example, “Zhu Rong” will now be written as “Zhurong”, and “Sun Shang Xiang” will be written as “Sun Shangxiang”. However, because it is their full name, “Wang Yuanji” and “Cai Wenji” will still be written as two words. (If you look these names up on Wikipedia or see them in other sources, you will see them written properly, so the team will be following the same format on the character names. However, the team didn’t go far to fix everything, so they insist on leaving the “ji” in “Zhenji”, when it should really be dropped.
Here is the complete list of female names in the game:
Nuwa (Orochi only)
Da Ji (Orochi only)
Sanzang (Orochi only)
In my opinion, I’m glad that the team has fixed those names in the correct way – Just feel like to keep you informed for the hardcore vocal fans out there. Feel free to discuss it here or tweet me @inspchin on Twitter.
