Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper (無双OROCHI2 Hyper, Musou OROCHI 2 Hyper) is the second re-release of Warriors Orochi 3. It is Koei's launch title for the Wii U.
- Players can play using either the console's handheld controllers or the Wii U gamepad. If the player plays solo using the gamepad, the mini-map is displayed on it.
- A new multiplayer card-battle mode called Duel Mode is included. The player forms their trinity of choice and arm themselves with four cards before each match. After deciding their deck of four, the battle begins after a stage has been selected. Cards can change the effects of the player's team and fall into one of four categories:
- Attack (Red) - deals damage.
- Auxiliary (Green) - adds a special effect to team's attacks.
- Obstruct (Blue) - places a limiting effect on opposing player's team.
- Special (Yellow) - any other special effects or techniques which doesn't belong in the previous three; conditions to use are specific and they may have side effects.
