Warriors Orochi 2 (無双OROCHI 魔王再臨, Musou OROCHI Maō Sairin, translated as "Unmatched Orochi: Advent of the Demon King") is the sequel to Warriors Orochi. This game features fifteen new characters and eight new stages.

GameplayEdit

  • Proficiency increases character endurance, and unlocks costumes and images in character galleries. Defeating five hundred enemies or five generals increases the character's proficiency level (maximum is 50).
  • It is much easier to switch between characters than before. Characters can be switched whilst mounted and during combos.
  • Each character has received a Strategy that activates by meeting a certain objective.
  • Team members can support one another when the character in the field is in trouble. When the player is hit, tap L1 with Square or Tri at the cost of the helper's Musou. Square will bring out the character left of the player's character icon and Tri will call out the one on the right.
  • Characters can perform a desperation attack with the entire team called Triple Attack. It can be activated by simultaneously pressing L2 and R2 when the controlling character has their life in the red and a full Musou bar. Certain team combinations have unique versions of this move.
  • The unique items have been removed in favor of Treasures. They can be collected by completing certain missions in select Story stages. They can be used to make unique upgrades for characters' weapons.
  • Enemy attack power and endurance have been lowered on higher difficulty levels.
  • Horse jumping is now an ability limited to Samurai Warriors type characters. The only way a character with the Dynasty Warriors archetype can perform this technique is through a game glitch, which is achieved by rapidly flicking the left analog stick to the diagonally left-to-right or by jamming Tri.
  • Characters and character types have been tweaked. Graphics for the R1 attacks have changed.

CharactersEdit

All characters from the previous title return for the sequel. A total of fifteen new characters have been added into the game. Eight completely new officers are introduced. Two characters return from Dynasty Warriors 3 and the five officers in Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends also make their appearance.

From Previous GamesEdit

NewcomersEdit

ModesEdit

Story ModeEdit

The Story Mode is expanded to include a story dedicated to Orochi, which is prelude to the events in the first title. Stories no longer contain side stages and only consist of eight stages.

Dream ModeEdit

This new mode allows players to go through a set of unique stages independent from Story Mode using preset teams linked to a particular theme.

Survival ModeEdit

This is a Tag-Team mode that is a callback to the original Dynasty Warriors. Players choose three characters from those that have been unlocked to fight against an opposing team in an arena. The stage walls can be destroyed and characters can be ringed out. Victory is claimed by defeating one member of any team. All characters retain their initial stats in this mode.

VS ModeEdit

A two-player versus mode. This offers four mini-games that pit the players against each other in a test of skill.

GalleryEdit

Wallpaper includes concept art, CG renders and special movie images for each character —excluding Orochi X, Gyuki, and Dodomeki. The various backgrounds can be unlocked by acquiring all abilities for a character and maxing out their proficiency. Wallpaper Edit is unlocked by playing every character at least once. Unlocked weapons can be viewed in the Weapons option, and the Treasure Guide includes broad tips for locating treasures.

The Movies option allows players to watch prerendered cutscenes that have been unlocked. Game previews for Dynasty Warriors 6 and Samurai Warriors 2: Xtreme Legends are included.

Bugs and GlitchesEdit

Other than the horse charge glitch mentioned earlier in the article, here a few other glitches.

Orochi X Glitch: The first one is a minor bug and pretty harmless. Play as Orochi X and defeat Da Ji or Kiyomori. The dialogue will rollback to a previous line rather than play the normal officer defeated line. This seems to happen at Shu's Koshi Castle, Wu's Itsukushima, Samurai's Chang Ban, and Wei's Komaki-Nagakute. There's also the small chance where his C3 will miss one person but completely annihilate two others, regardless of their health or defense. It seems that this bug is more prevalent on the Japanese PSP port than the PlayStation 2 or other ports.

Petrified Nagamasa Bug: During the Battle of Kyushu dream stage, players can experience a rare chance of freezing and bugging when they perform a charge attack while they're standing close to the "petrified" Nagamasa. One of the ladies will have their body stuck halfway through the ground and may not attack, move, or switch. The only way to mend the problem is to soft reset. A variation of the same bug may have the ladies levitate a few feet off the ground with no means to get down.

Shingen Throwing Glitch: When Shingen performs his R1 counter, it's possible for him to accidentally throw his foe into the ground. This occurs when players try to perform his counter and a team assist at the same time. Unfortunately, since the enemy is stuck underneath the ground, it's impossible to damage them in anyway. There is a slight chance that the game might freeze when this occurs and any mid-stage saves will need to be erased.

Differences between portsEdit

The PSP port has the following changes from its base:

  • Several optional dialogues between characters during battle are added.
  • The Strikeforce Fury forms for Zhao Yun, Sun Shang Xiang, and Xiahou Dun can also be used in the Japanese version. They become playable after their respective kingdoms' story modes have been completed. If the characters are in a team with these outfits, they will also perform a unique Triple Attack together.
  • The gallery's game previews changes to Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce.
  • Extra content introduced in Musou OROCHI Z (including fourth costumes, Benkei and San Zang) and a voice option were added for the North American, Chinese, and European releases.
