Sword 2: Revelations & Asoka
Some more news for Sword 2 is available as well. I assume Sword 2: Revelations will be v4.5. For more on Collector's Edition box, see G1 E3 News. Note that Asoka can only be recruited via a quest in GE-JP, and even that quest is available only during that specific event. See Asoka Visits Japan.
