Released in Japan as Shin Sangoku Musō 5 Special, the PS2 version of Dynasty Warriors 6. Six characters that originally had clone move sets from other character (Ma Chao, Yue Ying, Cao Pi, Zhang He, Taishi Ci, and Ling Tong) now have their own weapons and moves and are given their own Musou Mode. Other than those six new stories, the game also features five completely new stages. The new weapons go as follow:
Ma Chao now has a great sword similar to Fu Xi's rather than a spear
Cao Pi's short sword is exchanged for a longsword
Zhang He gets his trademark claws instead of a spear
Taishi Ci also switched from a spear to his trademark rods
Ling Tong's three section staff replace his halberd
Yue Ying switches from a longbow to a bladed crossbow
The game also has gone through various minor changes, and had dueling and swimming removed. Water bodies are now shallow enough to cross by foot.
In addition to these changes, the PSP version has Meng Huo, who was missing from the game but added in Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires, as a playable character.
