In the wake of the release of Warriors Orochi 4, the folks over at Miketendo64.com had an interview with the games producer Masaki Furusawa, and some interesting bits of information has come to light. We’ll highlight some here, but for the full interview we’ll have it linked at the bottom.
There was a lot of talk focused on KOEI Tecmo’s Switch version of the game and their support specifically for the console. A question brought up was about the possibility of Nintendo exclusive characters featuring in Warriors Orochi 4 from such titles as Hyrule Warriors and/or Fire Emblem Warriors. Furusawa had this to say:
“Yes, we thought about it. However, as we focused on delving deeply into the DW and SW cast, including an ‘incomplete’ cast of these other games would be disrespectful towards the fans, so we decided not to do so.”
Furusawa-san also went on to discuss possible other franchises they would like to collaborate with to give the ol’ Warriors treatment.
“Again, as a personal opinion, I think that there would be potential for the ‘Ys’ and ‘Xeno’ series to be adapted, because, just as you mentioned, they feature characters having a strong impact, and would therefore, meld well with the Warriors series.”
Naturally the Xeno series would be Nintendo exclusive while Ys has recently been a series published by NIS America.
Lastly we’ll highlight a comment made about future support for Warriors Orochi 4 across all platforms including content updates and DLC. Furusawa-san has some promising information to share:
“As regularly released items, we will mainly provide content that is expected by players. Other than DLC, we plan on continually updating this title in order to allow players to enjoy it as long as possible. As for the release of new content, we plan on maintaining a pace of about one release per month.”
So it is interesting to see what Furusawa-san has to say on these things, and there is much more interesting information in the full interview which you can read here! Warriors Orochi 4 is out now on PS4, XB1, NS and PC via Steam.
