The Shu campaign of Warriors Orochi is now well underway as Zhao Yun kicks off his efforts to find his lost master Liu Bei.
Well, I say that; I kicked him out of the party in favour of trying out newcomer Ginchiyo Tachibana, who I unlocked at the end of last week’s mission; turns out she’s rather fun, so sorry Zhao Yun, but you’re on the bench for now.
Hit the jump to see today’s mission… featuring a guest appearance from the biggest wannabe pimp in Sengoku-era Japan.
This was a highly entertaining mission for a number of reasons. Firstly, its unusual structure, where the map gradually scrolled and revealed itself as we completed the objectives, and secondly, the incidental dialogue that accompanied the action.
One of the great pleasures of the Warriors series, as I’ve been discovering to an increasing degree since checking out various installments in more detail, is how it juxtaposes the “serious” (albeit fantastic and ridiculous) with more light-hearted, character-centric interactions. Today’s mission is a great example of that, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this motley bunch works together as their campaign against Crazy Snake Guy continues.
