Crossover Event Continues with Warriors Orochi 2

Again This September 2008

KOEI announced today that the company is bringing
WARRIORS OROCHI 2 to North America. The game will be available for the Xbox 360,
and PlayStation 2 in September 2008.

KOEI also recently announced that the company
shipped a combined 1.5 million units worldwide of the original WARRIORS OROCHI
across all video game platforms including PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Windows-based
PC, and PSP.


Shattering time and space, the venomous Serpent
King Orochi kidnapped the DYNASTY WARRIORS and SAMURAI WARRIORS in scheme to
test his might. The heroes eventually defeated Orochi and his menacing army.
While the slain Orochi lies in the netherworld, a mysterious alliance is
hatching an otherworldly plan so that the Serpent King may rise again. Now a new
group of warriors must join forces with history’s finest in an effort to stop
this evil resurrection.

WARRIORS OROCHI 2 takes place after the events of
the original game. The game’s main "Story" mode features storylines for the
kingdoms of Wu, Wei, and Shu, and the SAMURAI WARRIORS, while a new Orochi
storyline looks back to the first series of wars to expose some of the Serpent
King’s secrets. The game’s newly added "Dream" mode features an original
storyline different from that of Story Mode.

A new two-player "Versus" mode comes
action-packed with four different games including "Tag Team" matches that pit
individual fighters in lethal head-to-head combat.

The popular "Team Battle System" which lets
players create their own three-person fighting unit returns for this sequel. At
any given time, one warrior will be engaged in battle, while the other two are
recuperating; restoring their Life Meters and Musou Gauges.

WARRIORS OROCHI 2 features an overwhelming lineup
of over 90 playable characters from both franchises including SAMURAI WARRIORS 2
XTREME LEGENDS, plus new characters from Chinese and Japanese history.

Developed by Omega Force, WARRIORS OROCHI 2 is
for 1-2 players (versus play). This game is not yet rated by the ESRB. WARRIORS
OROCHI for Xbox 360 delivers the ultimate WARRIORS OROCHI 2 experience in
stunning 720p HDTV and in game Dolby Digital audio. This title is not yet
concept approved by Microsoft. WARRIORS OROCHI 2 was released in Japan in April
2008 under the title, "MUSOU OROCHI: MAOU SAIRIN."
