PSP Fanboy review: Warriors Orochi

What can we say? Koei likes their Warriors formula. There's something different about Warriors Orochi though. Even though we've sifted through similar games, nay, almost identical games in the past, this title stands out. Perhaps it's the fact it's not lifted from the pages of history. Perhaps it's the sheer size of the character roster. Maybe we were just bored. Still, for Warriors fans, Warriors Orochi is the best of the franchise on the PSP, but everyone else will find the game repetitive and just like the others.

Warriors Orochi: familiar Koei fun

Koei is rather "comfortable" with the hack 'n slash formula they've refined over the years. In fact, their upcoming PSP title, Warriors Orochi is a blend of their most successful button mashers: Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors. As you can tell by this gameplay footage, if you've seen any of these games in action before, this will look awfully familiar ...

Warriors Orochi hits Europe in late March

For all those impulse-importer Europeans out there, hold off your orders for just a second because one more PSP title will be heading your way. That title is Warriors Orochi, scheduled to hit the European continent on March 28 -- three days after the game's North American release.

Warriors Orochi
is the amalgamation of Koei's two huge action franchises: Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors; the game takes all the familiar faces from past games and tosses them together for some fanboyish team-ups and storylines. We can't wait to rip it up on the PSP, even if we already did so on the PS2 version. Anyway, it's nice to know that Europeans can share in the 500+ combo kills at the same time we do.

Conquer the first Warriors Orochi trailer

Fresh from yesterday's announcement of Warriors Orochi is this first-ever English trailer. The PSP port brings all the hack 'n slash action of the PS2 original, with complete battlefields. Fans of the Warriors series of games need not fear: it looks like nothing much has changed in this long-running franchise.

GDC08: Warriors Orochi announced for US release

Koei has just announced the PSP version of Warriors Orochi will be heading stateside. According to the press release, "Warriors Orochi for PSP boasts the massive seamless battlefields of the console versions ... The handheld release includes all 79 playable characters, and features 2-player co-op play via wireless (ad-hoc)."

The hack and slash is about the Serpent King Orochi who somehow manages to use his powers to alter time and space, thereby fusing the worlds of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors. Warriors from Ancient China and Feudal Japan will have to team up together to fight this supernatural menace.

Check out the very first English language screenshots in our new gallery below.
