Musou Orochi 2 breaks out in December for PS3

New action game combining Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors characters to have user-generated content.

The last time gamers got to play as characters from the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series in the same title was with Warriors Orochi and Warriors Orochi 2 back in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Four years later, Tecmo Koei has now announced the next title in the crossover series: Musou Orochi 2.

According to a recent issue of Famitsu (via Andriasang), players can expect to control heroes from both franchises in new levels set in both the Romance of Three Kingdoms and Sengoku historical periods. The game has a scenario creator where players can make and upload custom stories onto the game's servers for other users to download and rate. Gamers will also be able to fight with 120 different characters.

The game will be out on the PlayStation 3 this December. However, an Xbox 360 version has yet to be confirmed. Readers should note that the translated title of this game should not be confused with the already-out Warriors Orochi 2, as that version was originally titled Musou Orochi Maou Sairin in Japan.

I'll probably play this for some time, finish the whole game once and probably never play it anymore. The thing about the Warriors series is that the first playthrough is exciting, but, imo, everything goes downhill afterwards. Still looking forward to Mitsunari though.

Can't wait! But plz don't forget about us Xbox ppl Koei! I still play Warriors Orochi 2 once in a while. Hmm this will probably have DW6/7 models, what will they use for the SW chars? I'd hate to see SW's nice combo system replaced by the one button system that the new DW's use...
