Warriors Orochi (5)

I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for a specific niche genre of games. I’m talking about games such as Dynasty Warriors and various other Tecmo Koei spin-offs, that are sheer-number crunching exercises in mass murder as you face hordes of enemies. I always find them fun, which is why I’m probably keen on getting Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. And not because of the sexy outfits. Nope, no way, nuh uh.

Because going head to head with what could possibly be one of the biggest game launches of the year in the form of Destiny sounds like a grand idea, the next all you can slay game in the Warriors Orochi series will launch on September 5. Good luck Tecmo Koei. Anyway, if this has your interest, then here’s what you can expect to find in that game according to a press release that I copied and pasted from below:

One Warrior against a Thousand Battles

Densely populated battlefields with up to 100 enemies on screen, each with progressive AI add to the exhilarating battle, amplified by new moves including Aerial Special attacks, Triple Rush (a system which allows the player the ability to switch between individual characters or unleash attacks as a party of 3 and True Musou Burst, the powerful finishing move executable by up to 6 characters.

New and Crossover characters

The legion of warriors is larger than ever with 145 playable characters including the introduction of Abe Seimei and Shennong, just 2 of 9 that are new to the series, cameos include Xu Shu from the Dynasty Warriors franchise and Rachel from NINJA GAIDEN Sigma 2 with more to be announced including the Atelier and Samurai Warriors series.

Captivating Lands and Stages

Lands and battlefields are dramatically rendered drawing from the dark, sinister imagery in the OROCHI series totaling 51 distinct stages with cross-over stages melding universes including Atelier, Dynasty Warriors, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Samurai Warriors, furthermore, Musuo Battlefields allow for customization including character models and battle cries.

The mythology of the Orochi universe expands

A new main storyline brings the heroes together again after the death of the Demon Snake as they are called upon by a mysterious stone to return to the chaotic din of battle. Additionally, new side stories provide a multitude of new scenarios and uncover secrets, the story extends with the ability to battle from a different point of view or even “what if” hypothetical stages that exist in a parallel world.

Gameplay modes

Adding to both Online and Offline competition, new modes include Duel Mode, a fusion of team battles (up to 3 vs 3) and card battles, Craft Weapons function to alchemy even more powerful weapons, Officer Requesting and Summoning, Formation Skills and Dragon Portals that can be used to escape the battlefields, weaken enemies or recover party members Life Gauge.

Share experiences Online

PS4 system players will be able to capture screenshots and live stream, share and see live comments which can impact either players’ games or co-op in Story mode, Free Mode and the new Gauntlet Mode.

Cross-Play and Cross Save functionality

Co-op, data sharing and saving, and save data is now possible between PS3™ system, PS4 system and PS Vita system versions, including save data importing of the original Warriors Orochi 3 on PlayStation 3.

Honestly, I’m just in it for the Soul Caliber and Ninja Gaiden characters. And skimpy outfits. But at least I’m honest about it, which should count for something. I hope.

    There’s a Dynasty Warriors game on Steam. I watched the trailer because I didn’t know what it was… & I still don’t know. It looks like a point-with-weapons-&-shout-at people sim.

      You basically run around a huge battlefield and kill thousands of enemies. Button masher but mindless fun
