Warriors Orochi 3 coming to North America
Developer Tecmo Koei released a statement today, confirming a North American release for their fighting game, Warriors Orochi 3. The title will be coming to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on March 20, 2012
Warriors Orochi 3 marks the third game in the series, and this time around, the heroes of the Three Kingdoms and the Warring States are struggling to control the land due to massive, monstrous threat. After the eight-headed beast destroys most of the warriors, the rest must rise up and renew bonds to take down this terrible beast.
The game features an impressive lineup of characters, which has now risen to over a 120, and an interesting new "bond system." The new system uses character bonds which "can be increased by interaction in banquets, fighting together as allies, rescuing struggling allies, and accepting then clearing missions in battles."
The third installment not only ships with a length single-player story, but a three-character tag team, two-player split-screen co-op, and a two-player online Story Mode and Free Mode.
Despite being an "under the radar" type series, hardcore fans adore the action and thrilling narratives. Warriors Orochi 3 looks impressive, and should definitely be given a chance by fans of the fighting or action genre.
