Description

Warriors Orochi is a crossover between Koei's Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises. The Serpent King, Orochi, has made a rift in time and taken the most powerful warriors from the Sengoku period of Japan, and China's Three Kingdoms era for a showdown of the ages.

Battle the demon Orochi, and hack and slash his armies with a team of three warriors you can rotate between at any time. Your two inactive teammates will recuperate during their downtime. If your active character dies, however, you'll have to restart the mission or load a saved game. A total of 79 playable characters from Dynasty Warriors 5, Samurai Warriors 2 and two new combatants are available to you. The new Weapon Fusion technique allows you to combine a particular character's different weapons into a single stronger one.

Choose from four unrelated story campaigns, Shu, Wei, Wu, and Samurai Warriors Story, with different unlockable characters, weapons and items in each. In the game's Free Mode, you can use any character in any stage you've already completed.

Play with a friend in two player split screen co-op.

Screenshots

Warriors Orochi Windows In small numbers, riflemen are not much of a threat. However, as their attacks interrupt your combos and can also break your defense, grouped together or with other soldiers, they can be devastating.
Warriors Orochi Windows When an enemy officer drops such a box, quickly grab it. It will contain a new weapon, perhaps more powerful than the one you wield and that can be used for weapon fusion anyway. Resistance is futile?
Warriors Orochi Windows Growth points are gained during battles, depending on your performance. Besides weapon fusions, they can be used to increase the level of your character.
Warriors Orochi Windows Blue and transparent soldiers are phantom soldiers. They cannot be defeated and allied soldiers will lose morale when confronted with them. Kill the sorcerer who conjured them and they will disappear.
