    I'm honestly just impressed at this point. They managed to make the numbering of a second series confusing now? I'm sure I'll pick it up for around $25 in the long run. I always do with Koei slashers.

    I would prefer to see a Romance of the Three Kingdoms on a next-gen console already!

    Well, this is pretty good news imo. I'm very fond of the WO series largely because the setting is more original than past Warriors games, even if it is an excuse to merge two series together.

    I wonder if the characters from DW Strikeforce 2 will make an appearance, like the WO characters appeared in DW Strikeforce. As well as the WO Z characters.

    DW7 styled too, retaining the character swap... and likely with a large list of characters. Definitely will get it.

    Is Square Enix involved with the numbering somehow?

    I just completed Warriors Orochi 2 (US) and I enjoyed it although some of the leveling and proficiency farming took a while (even with the guides...)

    Since Warriors: Legends of Troy and DW 7 XL were confirmed to not be coming out on the 360, don't expect to see this on our console.
    State of the badass art.

    From Koei:

    Musou Orochi 2 will be released on December 22, 2011 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan.
    Whether or not it will come out here is another issue though. Not sure if you mean at all, but I just want to be clear.

    This'll fill the void left by a lack of 7XL for the 360. Absolutely LOVED the first two games: the gameplay, the storyline (yeah, its just an excuse to slap the two universes together, but the storyline in both of the previous games were quite interesting to me), the fact that its the same DW-style game that I know and love, etc. Assuming it makes its way outside of Japan, this is definitely a day 1 purchase. Here's hoping!

    I was impressed as well. Maybe it will become tradition.

    Lets be honest here, 360 sucks in Japan. There is no reason for them to make a 360 version unless they are going to send it overseas. I'd consider an overseas release to be definite.

    Also, SW3XL/E/WOZ were all PS3 exclusive and never got a US release. 7XL is an exception, and Troy was actually being developed for the 360 but it was canceled, the only thing Koei even said about it is that it was "broken". Rumors seem to persist about a December release for Troy though, and retailers seem to think that as well (Gamestop and Gamefly, specifically).

    My point being, when 360 isn't in the picture, they don't port it stateside, when it is, they do. Makes sense since the 360 doesn't do that well in Japan, especially compared to Europe or the US.

    I most definitely want this game.
    Really need more games in all the Koei hack n slash games, only have DW5: Empires right now.
  • Posted on 07 October 11 at 22:37
    I might get this title it's a while since I played a DW style game.

    Heh, I was waiting to see Slimes response here. I've never played a game in the series, but if it's anything like DW then I may have to...
