Tecmo Koei Announces Warriors Orochi 3


The next in Tecmo Koei’s long line of button-mashy field strategy action games is coming to North American. Entitled Warriors Orochi 3, this title will once again put together characters from Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, and the rest of the Warriors game series (minus Gundams of course). Yes, this even means that Achilles and Jeanne d’Arc will be joining the cast, along with special guest appearances from Ryu Hayabusa and Ayane from DOA and Ninja Gaiden fame.

Here are some of the new features of the game straight from the press release:

  • Three-character tag team.

  • Two-player split-screen co-op.

  • Two-player online Story Mode and Free Mode. Recruit a playing partner for a stage you have already completed, or respond to a recruitment call from another player.

  • Character categories: Speed, Power, Technique, and Wonder, whose warriors can use Spirit Charges.

  • Dash Chain – smooth transition between movement and combat.

  • Counterattack – knocking back enemies and rendering them momentarily defenseless.

  • Support Attack – while being attacked, press the character switch button for another team member provide back up support. If the characters have a strong bond, the support member will sometimes appear automatically.

  • Switch Combo – Switch characters immediately after landing a attack creating an endless consecutive chain of attacks.
  • True Triple Attack – featuring all three player characters in an aura that repels enemy forces. When the True Triple Attack Gauge is emptied, all three team members will combine to perform an explosive finishing attack.

    The game is expected to hit American shores on March 20th.
