Dynasty Warriors 6 Special: Zhang He busts out the claws

Make no mistake, I am bloody narked off that Koei decided to fill Dynasty Warriors 6 with cloned characters and is now making a PlayStation 2 version of the game with de-cloned warriors, but I am such a sucker for Zhang He that the return of his claws is enough to squeeze some forgiveness from me.

Below are the current CG renders of "de-cloned" characters with unique weapons that didn't appear in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of the game. As well as Zhang He getting his claws back, Cao Pi sports a new sword, Ling Tong's nunchucks have returned, while Ma Chao now has what I like to call "the stupidly big anime sword of bigness." 

Also, to save some time, feel free to copy and paste this pre-written comment as a response to this news piece:

How is this a news post? Dynasty Warriors sucks it is like Madden and I don't care about this post. I don't care so much about this post I am going to make a comment about this post telling you I don't care about this post. Also, it only uses one button.

You can thank me for saving your keyboard from wear-and-tear later. As for the three percent of us who actually care, is any of the DW fanbase interested in this? It's very obvious that Koei knows DW6 was incomplete in its current-gen form and is only finishing it off for the PlayStation 2 version. Not cool at all in my book ... but those claws look so good.

[Thanks, Koei Warriors]
