Summary: what's new is a campaign for LU Bu, with 2 endings. also some new extra if-stages are available for the normal 4 kingdoms. new characters: Lu Linqi (Lu bu's daughter), Chen Gong, Fa Zheng, Yu Jin, and Zhu Ran. what? even Zhu ran? I think eventually you can play as Cao Bao in the DW series.
