Added a feature that allows players to change their playable character.

Huh? How will this affect the story mode? Until now we can't play anyone else outside the one who own the story.
Maybe now we can play multiple stories at once and don't have to repeat battles that are shared by multiple characters anymore? aka, playing actual "Kingdom Mode".
Xehanort's guardian is the will of Kairi's grandma. It will absorb Xehanort and become Kairi's grandma, the final villain!!!

Just tested it, you can change characters in story mode, but not in free mode. Interesting to note that when changing characters, it does the warning about their play history being overwritten.

It's rather limited though; you can't, for example, play as Cao Cao in his last chapter and then switch to Diaochan as a way of playing as her while doing his story.

It can only be other characters within the same kingdom, and also happens to appear in the same scenario, so no Dian Wei in Cao Cao's last chapter or Sun Quan either.

Overall it seems like a convenience more than anything, but I haven't tested if this feature can be used to skip chapters for other characters (like swap out Cao Cao for Xun You to complete his story quick, or something) OR if it's just playing as another Wei character but advancing Cao Cao's storyline.

CHAPTER SKIPPING IS LIVE!!!!!

At least in some form, as it doesn't unlock the chapters in between.

Did it with Cao Cao and Zhang He, went to Cao Cao's last chapter, changed to Zhang He, now he has chapters 5 and 8 available.

EDIT: Did it again to see if I could unlock Zhang He's story chapter by chapter doing this, and it doesn't seem to work that way. So it might be somewhat locked, but I haven't tried actually completing a chapter or doing anything other than saving after I changed characters, so there still might be hope.

Some minor notes:

- Wind elemental attacks now put a purple aura on the enemy? Not sure if the base effects have been changed again or if it's just a new visual

- Named officers now seem to preform counters, though I've been playing Chapter 8 on ultimate. Also might not be new, it's been a while since I played.

- Enemy musou attacks seem a bit faster now, could be my imagination.

How does Guard Counter work?

Pretty much just hold guard, once any attack hits you can press triangle for a quick counter. It's pretty much a counter without the slow motion, though it has a different animation. Also counter related gem attributes work with it.

Also for an update with chapter skipping, IT WORKS!

Zhang He was able to go from Cao Cao's final battle on chapter 8 to start chapter 9 on his own, though it still doesn't unlock any earlier chapters. Might only work with certain character combos too, I tried starting from Pang De's Chapter 9 with Zhang He earlier and he couldn't trigger the first mission. Might've just been a glitch, we'll see.

I wish they would fix the load times for getting into an online game. EVERY host I've tried to join just leaves as I'm loading into it.
