Dynasty Warriors 4 (Shin Sangoku Musou 3) – Stage Flow Charts

You are here: [ Home –> Games –> Dynasty Warriors 4 –> Stage Flow Charts ]

In Dynasty Warriors 4 Musou Mode while playing the major kingdoms (Wei, Shu, and Wu) your storyline changes depending on your actions and the stage order you choose. There are also special stages that you can reach by fulfilling certain requirements (which you must get to unlock many items and some officers). This guide will show you how to do this, and for the major kingdoms flow charts are also provided. Hat tip: Muni_Shinobu and Arcor for the original guides, and to Kanitha (Gravity) for the Wu scenario strategies.
