INTRODUCTION
Welcome to Shin Sangoku Musou 4 Special! This game is the special edition of what's known as "Dynasty Warriors 5" in English-speaking countries, so if you've played DW5 at all before, you'll feel right at home here. The game is entirely in Japanese with only a few token English words here and there, but that doesn't matter - it's very easy to just pick up and play.

There are 48 achievements to be had, each corresponding to a playable character. You'll gain an achievement for every character whose Musou Mode you complete. Each character has between four and eight missions, and they can be done on any difficulty, so feel free to set it to Beginner and just blast through. They'll take roughly 40-50 hours (about 1 hour per character) on higher difficulties, or 20-30 hours (30-45 minutes per character) on lower difficulties.

ABBREVIATED WALKTHROUGH
Because all the characters are unlocked from the start of the game, you can get the achievements in any order you like. In this section, I'll describe how to start a character's Musou Mode, and go through what the various menu options do, as well as give a basic description of how the game will progress.

First, select Musou Mode from the main menu. Next, select your character. The game will then prompt you to select a difficulty; they are as follows:

Beginner - Easy - Normal - Hard - Chaos

After confirming your difficulty, you'll get a short introduction to your character, followed by a lecture from your commander. Once it's done, you'll be taken to your first battle.

PRE-BATTLE
  • The first menu option is used to equip your character. The first sub-menu is for weapons, the second for special items and the third for bodyguards. Remember to check this screen after every battle to equip any new weapons or items you may collect!
  • The second menu option shows you your objective, which will usually be to kill the enemy commander (in red) and protect your commander (in blue).
  • The third menu option shows the positions of enemy and ally generals.
  • I'm not sure what the fourth option is.
  • The fifth option quits to the main menu; you're prompted Yes or No if you select it.
  • The last option begins the battle.
IN BATTLE
The menu is similar to the pre-battle menu. The sixth option on the list will make a mid-battle save that you can then continue from the main menu. The number of times you can save depends on your difficulty, and is represented by the Xbox 360 Memory Unit icons on the right of the screen.

In general, your objective will be to fight through the enemy troops to reach the enemy commander, and defeat him. Enemy generals will drop random power-ups when defeated, usually Attack or Defense Up. If you ever find yourself stuck and don't know what to do to finish the level, just start killing everyone, and eventually something will happen that will allow you to finish.

Look out for Kakusei items, either in boxes or dropped by e-nemies. In the English version of Dynasty Warriors 5, these were known as "Musou Rage" tokens. You can press to activate one, boosting your attack speed and power considerably. It's best to save these for enemy commanders or other difficult generals.

After battle, you'll receive whatever items and weapons you picked up during the battle, as well as experience points, which will help you level up. If you're at a higher level, the number of items you can equip will increase. Your bodyguard will also receive experience. Finally, you'll get tokens that you can spend in the Camp screen (on the fourth menu item) to increase your stats.

RED HARE
To aid in completing the Musou Mode stages, you'll want to get the Red Hare Harness. This will allow you to start each stage riding Red Hare, the fastest horse in the game. To get it, play the Battle of Chang Shan as Yuan Shao's Forces (in Free Mode, it's the first battle listed under "192") and defeat Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei in under one minute. The timer starts when you kill one of them - I'd suggest starting with Zhang Fei. The rare item box will then appear in the northwest corner of the map.

CONCLUSION
Shin Sangoku Musou 4 Special falls into the category of "easy but time-consuming". Beyond setting the difficulty to Beginner and going straight for the enemy commander in every stage, there's no real way to speed up the process of getting the achievements. Just proceed at your own pace and try to enjoy the game while you're doing it.

ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE
I've listed the achievements in the order of the characters on the character select screen, divided by kingdom. So even if you can't identify a character by name, you can match up the achievement's face picture to the one on the character select screen.

SHU KINGDOM

趙雲伝クリア - 20
趙雲伝をクリアしました。

Clear Zhao Yun's Musou Mode.

Each achievement's criteria is the same - complete X character's Musou Mode. I'll give you a list of the missions each character will complete in their Musou Mode here. Battles are won in one of two ways: either by killing the enemy commander, or by escorting your commander to their escape point (which will be marked in yellow on the Objectives screen). I've added pertinent notes about certain missions, but for a more detailed walkthrough of the game, please refer to a Dynasty Warriors 5 FAQ. I'd recommend Rampidzier's FAQ.

1 - Ji Province
2 - Hu Lao Gate: Lu Bu will appear towards the end of the stage; go around to the north and defeat Zhang Liao to bypass him.

Very helpful guide! Thanks!

Just to nitpick a little though, I should mention to those trying to do this that you should definitely get Red Hare FIRST. Otherwise even on very easy some of the musou modes can take as much as 60 minutes each. Also just as a note if they all take 30-45 minutes it should be a 25-35 hour game

30-45 minutes per character. Bullshit.

On some maps, the general doesn't even appear until you do some other stuff on the map. And unless you Japanese you ain't gonna know what it is until you do it and kill 500+ enemy warriors. I'm lucky if I pull 10-15 minutes a map.

And then I just played this one match with some motherfucker made out of the hardest fucking metal known to man. This fucker just would not die and even on easy, with all of my warriors, a few captains, and my worthless "bodyguard" all zerg-rushing and playing volleyball with him, I still got my ass handed to me over a half dozen times.

I'm sorry you're having a lot of difficulty with some of the stages here. There are several general things you could try to make it easier on you:

- Search for videos on YouTube of people completing the stage you're stuck on in English. Remember, in English this game is called Dynasty Warriors 5. Use the achievement guide to get the name of the stage you're currently playing. This will let you see what it is you have to do on each stage.

- Use a FAQ; I've linked to one in the Roadmap section.

- Some basic familiarity with the Dynasty Warriors series will help. I'd strongly recommend you play through Dynasty Warriors 7 (in English!) before trying a game that's exclusively in Japanese.

- Do you know the name of this troublesome general? If he appears on the Hu Lao Gate or Si Shui Gate stages, it's most likely Lu Bu, whom you should avoid - he's deliberately made stronger and more difficult to kill on those stages, and you're not expected to do so.

I still stand by my time estimations (well, maybe not the 20-30 hour one - thanks, Minioger ), but nonetheless I welcome your feedback. Thanks!

Looking at some of the FAQs and such, it looks like it was Lu Bu. Managed to beat him the first time. Second time I went around without any issue. Only now I'm on a level where the game has cheated. I killed the General and the game said, "Fuck that, here's another General to beat." So now I'm getting zerg-rushed and since my useless partner died, I'm completely hosed. The only saving grace is that I found this necklace that gives me auto-regen musou and true musou attacks whenever I'm in the red on health.

How do you even block in this game? I'm tired of getting ass-reamed by all those captains with their ridiculous combos that almost always floor me.

Thank you very much, and thank you for "submitting" it so that it could be posted on the main site! I had been meaning to do this myself, but alas, real life has a tendency to get in the way...

To block, hold LB. Note that you can only guard against attacks from the front. You can also tap LB if you're sent flying into the air by an attack in order to recover.

(As an aside: It may be worth me editing the Roadmap to add the controller layout. I had assumed that anyone choosing to play this game would have a decent enough knowledge of the Warriors series to be able to just pick up and play, but as it turns out, this may not be the case...)
