A demo mode was made available via the Japanese site that could be downloaded onto the PSP and featured all characters from the three kingdoms. However, just a few hours after release, a code was discovered that made all the 'Other' type characters also available for use. After a lawsuit threat from Koei, the code was taken down. The demo had a level cap of three and had only three stages, although all weapons were available for use.
