Greatly improves the quality of the voice acting, in my opinion, Also, playing in English, you'll notice there is no audio for some lines, ie, the narration section between battles, conversations in camp and your base in Ambition mode. This DLC gets rid of those awkward silences. Plus, it's free so why not?

I'm not an active Steam user, so excuse me if I don't know the proper way to download DLC's.

I clicked the download button, and the Japanese Langauge DLC was added to my game, but when I go to check under Options>Sound, there isn't the option to change the audio dialogue to Japanese. Is anyone else experienceing this technical problem?

If someone else has already fixed this problem, could you tell me how you did it?

Thank you very much.

So far, I'd played the DW games up until now with so-bad-it's-good English voices. And frankly, those are lots of fun; but if you want to get the feel of the events, be they the fear of soldiers (you know, those guys you kill by the thousands) who end up running into impossible odds (usually you, though they rarely voice it in that particular case) in battle, or an dramatic cutscene, you need this. Seriously, this managed to make me sad in an actual sad scene, instead of the chuckling I get when I try playing such a scene with English voices. I didn't even know that was a thing! One thing that takes some getting used to is that the names of the characters are pronounced differently in Japanese and Chinese (which the English version borrows its pronounciation from), possibly due to the characters (as in letters, not people) they are written in being common in both languages, but with different readings. Lu Bu becomes Ryofu, Cao Cao turns into Sousou, etc.

Converts game from tired mid-afternnon American soap-opera to Asian cinematic epic.

Be warned - It's a 2.7 gig download but it does add extra voiced dialogue e.g. to the conversations you have with the other generals and things in the camps albeit in Japanese.

This DLC opened my eyes, and made me realize what a horrible baka ne i am. As of writing, i have currently imprisoned myself in a chinese water cage near Chibi, so that i may experience the terror Cao Cao's forces felt back then. It really helps with immersion when the chinese ghosts around me shout I DEFEATED AN ENEMY OFFICER in japanese rather than nasal english!

Less cheesy voiceovers and extra voiced dialogs. And you can switch back to English at anytime in the ingame menu.

I found myself finally being able to stand some of the characters that had a really annoying voice, and most of the repeating dialogs ( "I didn't expect you to be so strong !" ) are a bit more bearable.

Download it if you can afford the 3 gigs of space it requires, just to try it out !

Chinese voices would obviously be a lot better, the only reason these are good is because they aren't the english voices. I don't understand Japanese but I'm willing to bet these voiceovers are probably not that good for Japanese natives either...

Real Traditional Chinese voiceovers should be the option, I don't get why they don't do that. Japanese sounds very "japanese" and nothing like chinese, even to a person (like me) who doesn't understand either language at all.

It's free and it removes the cringe factor of the english voices... but other than that, not that "essential" of a DLC as so many people claim, playing through the history of the CHINESE Three Kingdoms in JAPANESE of all languages is very cheesy and cheap as well. After about 20 hours of gameplay I actually got fed up with the japanese vibe on a chinese game (yes I know it's developed in Japan but the setting is china) and just switched back to English. Doesn't sound all that terrible now for some reason.
