Writer Thomas Williams reviews Wii U launch title, Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper.
"Dynasty Warriors started out as a Romance of the Three Kingdoms fighter spin-off, but has since gained the cult following and success needed to eclipse its slower paced big brother, forming a franchise of its own. From Three Kingdoms China, to Sengoku Japan, Ancient Geece, and even Gundam’s Universal Century, the “Musou” or “Warriors” franchise has spanned countless battlefields, both fictional and non-fictional. However, the true testament to the strength of the Warriors franchise lay in Warriors Orochi, combining a majority of the characters and settings from not only the Warriors games, but other Tecmo Koei franchises as well. The result is Oda Nobunaga, Ryu Hayabusa and Joan of Arc cleaving through thousands of demons in twisted versions of their homeworlds."
