*About Warriors Orochi*
Without warning, the venomous Serpent King Orochi descended from the
skies above. Using his unworldly powers to shatter time and space,
Orochi kidnapped the strongest, wisest and most courageous warriors from
Ancient China and Feudal Japan in a scheme to test his might against the
heroes of these ages.
Most of the great armies of these two periods would succumb to the might
of Orochi. Yet powerful warriors remain and are ready to continue the
fight. Now, the greatest showdown in history is about to take place
In /Warriors Orochi/ the characters from both franchises must team-up to
wage war against this new, yet powerful force. The game boasts an
amazing roster of 77 playable characters from both the Dynasty Warriors
and Samurai Warriors franchises, while four action-packed "crossover"
storylines feature amazing team-ups and some long-awaited confrontations
between characters from both series.
The game's new "Team Battle System" and "Weapon Fusion" push Tactical
Action to a whole new level. For the first time in KOEI's Tactical
Action games, players can create their own three-person tag team. At any
given time, one warrior will be engaged in battle, while the other two
are recuperating; restoring their Life Meters and Musou Gauges. Every
character is categorized according to offensive ability, and with new
fighting techniques, it's up to the player to find the most lethal
combination of warriors. "Weapon Fusion" lets players combine the
attributes from different weapons for more devastating results.
/Warriors Orochi/ for Xbox 360 delivers the complete Tactical Action
experience with stunning graphics in 720p HDTV and in game Dolby®
Digital audio. This game is rated "T" (Teen- Mild Language, Mild
Suggestive Themes, and Violence) by the ESRB. /Warriors Orochi/ is
developed by KOEI's award-winning internal team, Omega Force. Press can
