Warriors Orochi 3 is coming on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in US (March 20) and EU (March 30). I must state this first to make sure you read it. I’ve included the release date and everything on our Facebook Page and there are still so many people asking and complaining about it’s neither coming or it’s not on the consoles that I’ve listed – they never read there! Haha, I don’t blame anyone, that’s the reason I’m here for!
Warriors Orochi 3 will be out in US as a digital download only via PlayStation Network (for the PlayStation 3 version). Other than that, you can find the copies in the stores – Xbox 360 version in US; both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version in EU.
Today I’m going to talk about the Special Attacks. As you know, in Warriors Orochi 1 and 2, you have the playable warriors and they’re categorized in 3 categories: Power, Speed and Technique. But in Warriors Orochi 3, we have added the new category called “Wonder” – that means we have 4 attack categories now. Sorry I can’t list out which warriors will be in which category because they are over 120 playable characters in this game and I don’t think I can remember them all personally.
To execute this Special Attacks, you can press R1 button (PS3 version) or RB button (Xbox 360 version) on your controller. You can also use the move while being attacked by the enemy. It will consume a portion of the Musou Gauge. There are 4 attack categories now: Power, Speed, Technique and Wonder.
Skill: Hyper Armor – You will not be knocked back when hit by normal or ranged attacks.
Skill: Aerial Thrust – If you press X (PS3) or A (Xbox 360) button while jumping, you will be able to dash forward while in mid-air. You will be invincible while you are moving.
Skill: Aerial Escape – You will be able to cancel specific actions by jumping during them. This allows you to quickly proceed to your next move without having to wait for the current one to finish.
Skill: Critical Hit – If you hit an airborne enemy with a Charge Attack or Special Attack, then you will inflict even more damage than usual.
Skill: Sidestep – If you press X (PS3) or A (Xbox 360) button while strafing, you will be able to execute a Sidestep. You will be invincible for a short moment from the start of the Sidestep.
Skill: Critical Hit – If you hit an enemy that has been stunned (with a Counterattack or due to being hit with multiple attacks) with a Charge Attack, you will inflict even more damage than usual.
Skill: Spirit Charge – Press X (PS3) or A (Xbox 360) while attacking in order to cancel your current attack and immediately follow up with an attack that can break the enemy’s guard. After using a Spirit Charge, you can also link it to additional attacks as well.
That is all for today! I’ll be sure to write more on this blog (sorry for being inactive for the last couple of weeks) – I really hope to share with you more exciting content soon!
