Wen Yeng:
DW8 May 17th


Wen Yang is a tall, young warrior, very calm and exceedingly brave, who takes up arms to assist his father. He charges into battle head on and refuses to get side-tracked, a trait that can be both helpful (as he ignores tricks and traps) and dangerous.

Furthermore, gamers in the UK will be able to have access to some nifty pre-order bonuses. If you pre-order from GAME.co.uk, you will receive a limited edition smartphone case that was originally only made available in Japan. There will be four designs that you can choose from, and each case is a specific colour and has a graphic of a corresponding character from that dynasty.

Here is another tid-bit of information surrounding pre-orders:
Other retailers will offer a DLC pack, featuring Zhou Yu, Lu Xun, Cao Cao, Zhang Fei and Guan Yu’s outfits from Dynasty Warriors 1. Those who pre-order through CentreSoft will also receive an exciting exclusive DLC pack that brings for the first-time outfits for Zhao Yun and Sun Shangxiang from Romance of the Three Kingdoms 12 into the Dynasty Warriors universe.
