In a surprise turn of events, Koei has unveiled the sequel to the highly successful crossover Warriors Orochi in this week's Famitsu. In the original, the demon king Orochi combines the worlds of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors, and spreads chaos. The new game will feature several new additions including new characters (Fu Xi, Nu Wa, all the characters from the expansion Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends - out March 18), stages (all new exclusive stages - Itsukushima - along with SW2:XL's brand of stages), modes (Dramatic, Survival, and, the long awaited return for, Versus Mode, which will feature the signature three-on-three design the original developed). Expect all this and more as new gameplay modes will be revealed throughout the year up until its release in Japan on April 3rd.
SPECULATION: Many have begun to suspect that the new Versus mode could be similar to the Duel mode, first introduced by Dynasty Warriors 4. Further inspection has led some beginning to think these arenas will be much larger than previous entries in the series.
