Koei has released the first promotional video for their upcoming hack and slash title, Musou Orochi 2
. If the title's unfamiliar to you, that's understandable as that's the game's Japanese moniker. Western gamers might recognize it better as the next installment in the Warriors Orochi
franchise, Warriors Orochi 3
If you're curious as to why the numeration is different, the second game in the franchise was released in Japan as Musou Orochi Maou Sairin
, which translates to Warriors Orochi: Rise of the Demon Lord
. Instead of bothering with a sub-title, the game was released in Western markets as Warriors Orochi 2
, so now we have to deal with a slight offset in the numeration.Musou Orochi 2
is scheduled for release on December 22nd in Japan. No details have yet been announced regarding releases in other markets, but we'll be sure to post about it once they're announced!
