Game Profile

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper combines the much loved heroes of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series in a story that also features characters from Ninja Gaiden, Warriors: Legends of Troy, Bladestorm, Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll, Dead or Alive and a new character made specifically for Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper!

Years after the battle against Orochi, the Serpent King, the heroes of the Three Kingdoms and the Warring States struggle to seize control of the new universe they were thrown into when a new threat arises. A terrible and colossal monster, resembling a serpent with eight heads, casts its shadow across the land and defeats most of the brave warriors. The ones that survived, assisted by the mysterious Kaguya, travel back through time to save fallen warriors and forge new alliances, collect powerful weapons and build an army so they can have a chance to defeat the terrible Hydra.

  • Huge cast of playable characters: More than 130 playable characters from the worlds of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors. But that is not all that you’ll have at your disposal this time, as the vortex created by Orochi drags a few more allies to their universe. Dragon Ninja Ryu Hayabusa, Achilles, Jeanne d'Arc, Nemea, and Ayane are only a few of the new additions to the playable character roster!
  • Unlock abilities and influence the storyline through the bond system: The bonds between characters can be increased by interaction in banquets, fighting together as allies, rescuing struggling allies, and accepting then clearing missions in battles. These bonds can influence the storyline, as well as unlock extra attacks and new stages.
  • Customize scenarios and share them online for all to enjoy: Cleared stages from Story Mode or Free Mode can be edited to create unique battlefields, where players can change voice lines and characters, acquire Musou Battlefield Elements in Story Mode and use them to add even more interesting new aspects to their original battlefields. Then rate scenarios created by others and see how your scenarios stack up.
  • New “Duel Mode”: An all new “Duel Mode” fuses elements of player versus player battles and card battles into intense combat for player vs. COM battles, or online battles against your friends.
  • Wii U™ GamePad compatible: Choose from two ways to play local two player co-op. Play using the TV and the Wii U™ GamePad screen, or play using standard split screen on your TV.

Hyper fighting

It's great to see such a variety of titles hitting the Wii U during its launch window, and of the many ports it's a joy to see the best of the Warriors Orochi games make the transition in Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper. For the uninitiated, the Warriors Orochi...

I have this game for the Playstation 3. Of course it's just your ordinary, run-of-the-mill hack & slash game and the graphics are really good as well. Though the voice over in the PS3 version is all in Japanese. I'm just hoping that the Wii U version will feature an English talent. What I like about it is that it also features Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden.

I quite liked the Japanes Voice acting on the 3ds Samurai Warriors game - it added to the Atmosphere - I'm going to get this!!!!

Nintendo does like to constantly remake games.... Ninja Gaiden sigma plus 2 special edition, Super Street Fighter 4 arcade special ultra edition, Samuai Warriors 7 dynasty combo extra ultra special edition plus remake HD, blah blah blah. Just create a new series or something.....

@DonkeyPuncher27 Well, it wasn't Nintendo making this game, the ports were done by Tecmo Koei, Capcom etc.

Shame that he ports were lazily done, Wii U could've easily handled a well done port of this one. They even made another port later in 2013 to PS3 again that included Hyper version's characters and more.
