No, I’m not even a little bit sorry for that title. Because it’s finally time for the final campaign of Warriors Orochi!
Yes, after successfully clearing the Samurai, Wu and Shu campaigns, it’s finally time to tackle the Wei’s challenges — beginning with Cao Pi apparently in the service of the snake god himself. But, as anyone who has ever played a Warriors game will attest, anyone with “Cao” in their name is usually up to something… I wonder what?
Time to hack and slash our way to the truth!
You thought we were done with the Shu campaign, but it was I, Lu Bu– hold on, I’m getting confused somewhere, I think.
Anyway, yes, as with all the other campaigns, the Shu missions play host to a “Chapter 8-X” which allows you to square up against Orochi once again… and perhaps give a certain little overconfident jackass with a silly hat the kicking he so deserves.
Let us take to the field once again, warriors, and this time, we shall be the ones to pursue Lu Bu!
We’re closing in on the end of the Shu campaign of Warriors Orochi now, with only two more side missions and one more story mission to go.
Today, Zhurong and friends decide to turn their attention to the peasants who are suffering under the yoke of Orochi’s oppression. She helps them escape in her own inimitable fashion — and is very keen to make sure we’re aware of her accomplishments at the conclusion of the battle.
I’m going to be sorry to leave this particular gang of misfits behind — they’ve been a lot of fun to play as!
Orochi’s armies are growing in strength in an attempt to counter the growing confidence of the Shu forces.
Zhao Yun can practically smell his master Liu Bei now — not literally, ’cause that’d be weird — and his friends are relieved to know that victory is within sight.
There are still a few challenges left to overcome, though… and as we’ve seen numerous times up until now, complacency can be a Warrior’s worst enemy!
The Shu gang still hasn’t quite tracked down Liu Bei, so Zhurong and Meng Huo decide to sneak off for a bit of independent investigation.
Along the way, they encounter
Jude from Tales of Xillia Musashi Miyamoto and decide to lend a hand, as he and his swordsmen friends appear to be struggling a bit.
Hell hath no fury like a bored barbarian lady, it seems…
With an outfit like that, it was only a matter of time before Zhurong gave the people what they wanted. And in slow-motion, too!
Ahem. Anyway, besides that little diversion, today’s Warriors Orochi outing sees the Shu gang teaming up with Wu’s Sun Ce in yet another sure-to-fail attempt to track down the perpetually absent Liu Bei. Will Zhao Yun ever be reunited with the man he lov– err… I mean, his master?
Only time will tell! For now, enjoy the barbaric butt-kicking, courtesy of Zhurong.
There’s no rest for the Shu forces as they come face to face with Masamune Date!
Thankfully, Date’s friend Magoichi Saika, who has been rolling with the Shu crowd largely because of its disproportionate number of attractive and formidable female warriors, has a cunning plan ready to go… assuming he can keep his mind on the battle, that is.
Zhu Rong, Ginchiyo Tachibana and Yue Ying surely have their work cut out for them this time around…
