Warriors Orochi 3 comes from the Omega Force development crew that has brought the Dynasty Warriors titles to gamers worldwide since the late 1990s. Despite the name, it is the fourth title in the series that brings the combination of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series. This installment serves as a sequel to Warriors Orochi 2.
Years after the battle against Orochi, the Serpent King, the heroes of the Three Kingdoms and the Warring States struggle to seize control of the new universe they were thrown into when a new threat arises! A terrible and colossal monster, resembling a serpent with eight heads, casts its shadow across the land and defeats most of the brave warriors.
The ones that survived, assisted by the mysterious Kaguya, travel back through time to save fallen heroes and forge new alliances, collect powerful weapons and build an army so they can have a chance to defeat the terrible Hydra.
But that is not all the help theyll get this time, as the vortex created by Orochi drags a few more allies to their universe. Dragon Ninja Ryu Hayabusa, Achilles, Jeanne d'Arc, Nemea and Ayane are only a few of the new additions to the 145+ playable character roster!
Warriors Orochi 3 also introduces the bond system, where the bonds between characters can be increased by interaction in banquets, fighting side by side, rescuing struggling allies, and accepting missions. These bonds can influence the storyline, as well as unlock extra attacks and new stages.
In Warriors Orochi 3 players can customise existing scenarios and then share them online for all to enjoy, as well as rate those created by others. Cleared stages from Story Mode or Free Mode can be edited to create unique battlefields, where players can change voice lines and characters, acquire Musou Battlefield Elements in Story Mode and use them to add even more interesting new aspects to their original battlefields.
This Ultimate edition for next-gen consoles adds new goodies into the mix, too. There are characters not seen in the original release, new modes such as 'Duel' (a fusion of team battles and card battles) and a huge new storyline.
