KOEI Tecmo Japan have revealed that for those of you who purchase Warriors Orochi 4, you’ll be able to import old save data to grant you some early bonuses within the game. Much like how many of other KOEI Tecmo games work, if you have the previous entry of the series or a similar enough game to the series’ save data, it’ll grant you a small bonus in the game.
For Warriors Orochi 4 however, there will be two separate types of bonuses. One for owning a copy of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, and another for owning a copy of Dynasty Warriors 9.
Note: This is confirmed for the Japanese versions of the game, thus no mention of the XBOX One version which is exclusive to the West, and will likely apply the same bonuses.
For those of you who own a previous iteration of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate (you can find the table just below), you will be granted Stock EXP as a bonus. The amount you get is based on how many kills you have total on your save data (with a maximum of 100,000). The following save data is compatible:
Next is for those who have Dynasty Warriors 9 save data. By importing your save data from said game, you will unlock a bevy of Dynasty Warriors 9 costumes for your characters (those featured in our header image). Specifically costumes for Zhenji, Daqiao, Yueying, Wang Yuanji and Diaochan. The following save data is compatible:
We assume that the XBOX One version of the game will have the same bonuses for both Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate and Dynasty Warriors 9. However we have no word if the Dynasty Warriors 9 bonuses are straight cut from the Nintendo Switch version (or any bonus for Switch in the West) or if there will be Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate bonuses for the Steam version.
Warriors Orochi 4 releases to the Americas on October 16th and October 19th for Europe. It’ll be coming to PS4, XBOX One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
But let us know what you think of this. Are you happy to see this Import Save Data bonuses continue to be a trend with Omega Force and KOEI Tecmo? Let us know in the comments!
