Ninja Gaiden’s Rachel Makes Cameo In Warriors Orochi 3 Special

By Spencer . May 8, 2012 . 7:45pm

rachelTecmo Koei is porting Warriors Orochi 3 to PSP and they’re adding another crossover character. Rachel from Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 will join Ryu, Ayane, and Achilles as a playable character.


Warriors Orochi 3 Special will have a new battle royale mode where four players can fight, presumably over an ad-hoc connection.


Have the PS3 version? If you put your save data file on your PSP’s memory stick you can unlock all of the characters from the beginning.


Warriors Orochi 3 Special will be available in Japan on July 19.

     Whoa! the ps3 game is 11 gbs. they really have their work cut out for them. then again they have most of the models made from Warriors orochi 1, 2  samurai warriors 3 and DW 7 made for the psp so I guess it won’t be too bad.

      They already have premade models and map textures from the other PSP entries and the game engine is practically the same. Hence porting it to PSP is more cost-efficient though I would’ve much preferred it on the Vita.

      Whether it gets localized or not is a different story though, the PSP is pretty much dead in the West while in the East they’re still making a ton of games and PSP sales are still decent. Might be a digital release if it ever happens.

    PSP and not vita? Odd that they would do that.

  • I’m seeing two UMD discs on this…

    I wonder if all this porting TK is  doing is benefiting them? I’m not sure about the sales figures for the PSP ports…

    Needs more Dead Fantasy.

    I would buy Rachel (and Momiji) DLC for the PS3 version, just sayin`.

  • Ladius

    I would gladly buy the new mode and characters as DLCs, too bad they’re using them to spice up a port that has no chances to be localized :( If only this was for 3DSVita…

    Other than that, Warriors Orochi 3 is indeed an awesome game, anyone interested in hack&slash games should really give it a chance.

    Half an hour ago I had to chill out a bit after the end of Starlight Inception’s Kickstarter (what a cliffhanger!) and WO3 was the first thing I thought to play.

    Well now…that is indeed a fine desicion.I was wondering if my last PSP title from KOEI’s ports would be Warriors Orochi 2,but here is the pinacle of pinacles!And with the Battle Royale mode I so dreamed all this time[if Sengoku BASARA can have the Dai Budokai,so can KOEI] AND RACHEL?? O_0

    I await for the next updates.This is very sweet.
