Warriors Orochi 3 European release date announced

Slice and dice in March.

Warriors Orochi 3 launches across Europe on 30th March, Tecmo Koei has announced.

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game is the third entry in the Japanese button masher series, and sees players slice and dice their way through huge armies.

WO3 includes characters from Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors and, for the first time, characters from Ninja Gaiden, Warriors: Legends of Troy, Bladestorm, Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll and Dead or Alive.

How is this explained? A vortex, created by Orochi, drags Ryu Hayabusa, Achilles, Jeanne d'Arc, Nemea, Ayane and co into the Warriors universe. Of course it does.

New features include three character tag team, two-player split-screen co-op, a two-player online story mode and free mode, and a host of new actions.
