A new weapon system allows characters to equip any type of weapon!
Now you can use two weapons to perform exciting new attack combinations!
Characters now carry a variety of weapons into battle including spears, swords, maces, and others. Weapons can be switched during battles.
While only two different weapons can be equipped at once, switching between the two will be simultaneous. Switching weapons also releases a powerful ""Switch Attack"" that has varying special effects depending on weapon type. This amount of variety allows players to create their own play style through their unique choice of weapons.
Weapons can even be changed in the middle of an attack sequence, allowing players to string together new types of combinations. Players can even change weapons while they're being attacked, resulting in some amazing counterattack moves."
Your strongest weapon - truth, loyalty and friendship!

But not only are you fighting through battles that portray various scenarios from the Three Kingdoms story; you can also visit vibrant cities strewn across the land. Here you can create or purchase new weapons and interact with other Dynasty characters.
