      TK added a new kingdom in DW7 which is Jin. All the characters above belong to that kingdom.

        Ya they share same Seiyuu though i think Sima Shi’s english VA (Josh grelle) pulled it of a little better :P

    I see Wang Yuanji as well, so 4 Jin characters~

    I thought for a moment it was Guo Huai getting a massive revamped look (with the pale complexion and everything) but I was pleasantly surprised to see a new character. I hope Retsugeki Sword is a completely different moveset for Sima Zhao.

    Sima Yi and what people are saying Zhang Chunhua (Sima Yi’s wife) were also in the scans.

    Jia Chong looks like a vampire. Why they made one of Jin’s most ruthless and shrewd advisers into THAT, is anyones guess.

  • Grell

    Oh please. The fact that they even put Zhang Chunhua is ridiculous. She married Sima Yi at 13, had Sima Shi and Sima Zhao in her early 20s and then Sima Yi found a concubine and Zhang Chunhua was basically treated like dirt. Their relationship was laughable at best. If this is another “Zhenji/Cao Pi” relationship, I will be furious. They make them out to be the loving couple when in reality, Cao Pi sentenced her to death.
