Description



Shattering time and space, the venomous Serpent King Orochi kidnapped the DYNASTY WARRIORS and SAMURAI WARRIORS in a scheme to test his might. The hers 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.

STORY MODE: THE SAGA CONTINUES...

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. (Includes 2P Co-op)

ADDITIONAL GAME MODES

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.

Survival Mode is based on the rules of Versus Mode's Tag Team, but designed for a single player. In Survival Mode, each opponent is controlled by the CPU. Various rewards are granted based on the player's total wins.

Free Mode allows you to play any unlocked stage with a team of your choice. The Gallery showcases hundreds of stills of characters and weapons, as well as all of the game's cut scenes.

TEAM BATTLE SYSTEM IMPROVED

The popular "Team Battle System" lets players create their own three-person fighting unit. 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 includes two new improvements to the "Team Battle System" controls. When your active character is being attacked, press either the L2 or R2 button (Left Trigger or Right Trigger for the Xbox 360) to have one of your team members defend you. But if the active character's life is low, press both buttons to invoke a coordinated Triple Attack by all three of your team members. Both of these attacks will deplete your Musou gauge.

OVER 90 PLAYABLE CHARACTERS

WARRIORS OROCHI 2 features an overwhelming lineup of over 90 playable characters from both franchises including SAMURAI WARRIORS2 XTREME LEGENDS, plus new characters from Chinese and Japanese history.

Attack Categories and Special Attacks
In the game, all characters belong to one of three Attack Categories (Power, Speed, and Technique). Each of these Attack Categories features a different Special Attack. Awareness of these different offensive strengths will be a vital step towards victory. Each Attack category has its own "Special Attack" plus an "enhanced skill" or a "unique action." Characters in the "Technique" attack category possess all three.

"Special Attacks" are performed by pressing the R1 button.
"Unique actions" are performed by pressing the "Jump" or "Special Attack" buttons in certain situations.
"Enhanced skills" do not require any action by the player.

Attack Category: Power
Each warrior in the Power Category possesses a "Power Attack," which can inflict significant damage or provide a strength boost. These warriors also possess "Hyper Armor" that prevents them from being knocked back by normal and arrow attacks when the player is on the offensive.

Attack Category: Speed
Warriors in the Speed category are adept at "Combination Maneuvers," which can be deployed consecutively from ordinary attacks. Speed warriors can also use the skills Aerial Thrust, propelling them through mid-air, and Aerial Escape, enabling them to jump up and away in mid-attack.

Attack Category: Technique.
The Special Attack for Technique warriors is called "Enhanced Strike." By pressing the R1 button in place of the triangle button in any combination, the effects of the attack will be multiplied, in exchange for using up the Musou gauge. Additionally, Counter Strike can be used by pressing the R1 button directly after taking damage. This produces a powerful counterattack in exchange for using up the Musou Gauge.

Character Attributes
All of the characters possess ten different attributes. These attributes are: Life, Musou Gauge, Offensive strength, Defensive strength, Speed, Combos, Abilities, Weapon strength, Proficiency and Special Attacks (based on character's Attack category)
