Xian Jiàn 六 – Hero (II)

The second hero of Xian Jiàn 六 has been released.

His name is Xián Qīng. The translation is ‘free state’.

Free State

His character poem is as follows:

山裁新雨葉裁秋 閑枕飛光望景流
雪霽雲沉都過客 風埃袖滿系輕舟

Further information on his character can be found here.

Xian Jiàn 六 – Heroine

The first heroine of Xian Jiàn 六 has been released.

Her name is Yuè Qí – which, if Google Translate is to be believed, means ‘pray more’.

Yuè Qí

Her character poem is as follows:

雲岫重重又幾重,天風吹落未玲瓏。
夙祈晴我青溟色,夜遠曦白卻碧穹。

I found this information on – http://gnn.gamer.com.tw/9/108399.html

My suspicions that this game is going to be different to the others is seeming to be proven correct. The article introducing Yuè Qí and this page from the official website both mention change.

I personally adore the game already. I mean, look at Yuè Qí. Her fashion is completely on point. she looks like a ninja! Her hair is short! In a game set in ancient China her hair is short! Can you imagine how much that would make her stand out? The kind of derision that would attract? And just look at her, her face is so determined. She isn’t there to mess about. She’s getting stuff done and asses kicked. Probably without having to lift a finger. Amazing.

Even our hero is awesome. He’s got an eye patch! We live in such an ableist society that seeing a hero who wears an eye patch and wields a sword. Three words for you – hand eye co-ordination. Not that his fashion sense isn’t on point as well. It is. It so is.

Xian Jiàn 六 – Hero

Say hi to our new hero!

And what a hero we have! Can I get a high-five from the ‘we wish he were real club’? Haha…

I love eye patches.

Also, yay! He wasn’t in the initial sketches that were released! Amazing.

Xian Jiàn 六

A trailer for the game Xian Jiàn 六 has been released.

There was talk of the game being created with UNREAL ENGINE if the fifth installment (not the prequel) sold well enough. The trailer gives nothing away of how the game will look. However, it does (I believe) give us the back-story.

The trailer can be found here.

The official game website has also been released – http://pal6.changyou.com/

For those who have little understanding of Chinese you can find information here. If you have Google Translate it will give you a rough idea about the back-story.

It sounds really exciting. And different.

Here are the images they released a short while back for anyone who missed them.

『仙劍奇俠傳六』

The FaceBook page 仙劍奇俠傳 has released these new images! They come alongside the caption:

『仙劍奇俠傳六』首次公佈遊戲神秘角色剪影!
這四人是何族類?各個身份為何?其中又是否有遊戲的主角?

We’re getting Xian Jiàn 6!!!

If the sales are at the right place for the Xian Jiàn 5 (not the prequel) then it might just be made with something called ‘Unreal Engine‘, or so I’ve read in some place or another by people with greater knowledge of Chinese than me. Continue reading

Technically, this is a day late, but all things ‘me’ considered, that’s actually pretty early.

I adore the Xian Jiàn and Gǔ Jiàn games. They have wonderful morals embedded in them, are told beautifully and have the most heart-rending love stories.

Warning: spoilers ahead.
