Having hacked and slashed its way across the PS3 and 360, the Warriors Orochi series is heading onto next generation of consoles with its Wii U debut Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper.
Alongside the 130 playable characters from Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden, Wii U consumers can play as four new characters exclusive to the console.
Hyper will also allow players to take each other on in a Duel mode that blends card and player vs. player battles to create a unique style of gameplay that can be played against the computer or online with friends.
The Wii U gives gamers the opportunity to play local two-player co-op using both the TV and the Wii GamePad screen combination or a standard split screen on the TV.
“Warriors titles are known for their extensive, loyal fanbase and we expect that fans of the series to embrace this version as well,” says Marilena Papacosta, PR and marketing manager at Tecmo Koei.
“We find that the community is really responsive when it comes to titles from the Warriors series and so our plan is to re-enforce and grow their engagement level through a series of sponsored stories and Facebook advertising on our social channels.”
