Tecmo Koei Europe today announced that Warriors Orochi 3 will be released across Europe on March 30th 2012. The new game will include 120+ playable character roster, a new bond system, where the bonds between characters can be increased by interaction in banquets, fighting side by side, rescuing struggling allies, and accepting missions.
Other new features of the game include the following:
- Three-character tag team
- Two-player split-screen co-op
- Two-player online Story Mode and Free Mode. Recruit a playing partner for a stage you have already completed, or respond to a recruitment call from another player.
- Character categories: SPEED, POWER, TECHNIQUE and WONDER, whose warriors can use Spirit Charges.
- New Actions, like:
Dash Chain - smooth transition between movement and combat. Counterattack – knocking back enemies and rendering them momentarily defenceless. Support Attack – by pressing the character switch button while being attacked, another team member shows up to provide back up support. If the characters have a strong bond, the support member will sometimes appear automatically. Switch Combo – switch characters immediately after landing an attack creating an endless consecutive chain of attacks. True Triple Attack – featuring all three player characters in an aura that repels enemy forces. When the True Triple Attack Gauge is emptied, all three team members will perform an explosive finishing attack together.
