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.

Warriors Orochi Windows Archers (here, Orochi soldiers, snake-like appearance) are quite similar to riflemen, although a bit slower. As seen here, when in a castle, you can zoom the radar to better view stairs and doorways.
Warriors Orochi Windows Characters with a special relationship will interact specifically. For instance, CPU-controlled Xing Cai has a specific message to congratulate the player-controlled Zhang Fei (her father).
Warriors Orochi Windows Up to seven abilities can be activated for a battle, each giving specific bonuses to your characters. Each character, as he/she gains experience, gives you 3 specific abilities levels.
Warriors Orochi Windows After choosing the campaign you want to play, you can access a team creation screen, with a summary of each character stats. Characters are organized according to the "clan" they belong to.
