Well, the Shu warriors have finally reached the end of their journey: Koshi Castle, home of the dreaded Orochi.
This is what it all comes down to! Everything the team has been fighting for culminates in this final battle. And perhaps… just perhaps, if they’re lucky, they’ll finally be reunited with Liu Bei after a very long journey!
Although if you’re accustomed to how Liu Bei looks in more recent Warriors installments, be ready for a bit of a surprise!
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…
In this week’s Warriors Orochi mission, the various narratives cross paths as the Shu forces take on the Wu warriors who have been brought to heel by Orochi.
This conflict, which unfolded off-screen during the Wu campaign, sees the Shu people continuing their quest to track down the missing Liu Bei… only to find a bit of a surprise waiting for them at the conclusion of their mission.
It seems Zhao Yun is not to be reunited with his precious lord just yet… but there’s certainly never a dull moment in the lives of these brave fighters.
