KOEI TECMO has released new battle system details for its Musou mash-up Warriors All-Stars. Players will be able to recruit up to four champions to fight along side them in combat. Each of them will have their own Musou Rush attacks . You may also call upon your champions to do unique Hero Skills. These skills can vary from punishing attack to granting you greater defense. Hero Skills can also be used one after another to create Combo Skills for even more devastating effects.
Here is a bit more detail about this system straight from the press release:
The extensive battle system of Warriors All-Stars aims to encapsulate each champion’s unique charm and identity while augmenting the Warriors franchise’s trademark one-versus-thousands style with exciting new additions. For example, players can recruit up to four Warriors to fight alongside them and execute special attacks such as the thrilling Musou Rush, which can be used to rally support and clear the surrounding area of any opposition. Unique Hero Skills are also on offer, allowing players to summon a chosen ally and deal a special attack to enemy forces, or to provide defensive support in tight situations. Some Hero Skills can be used in tandem to create Combo Skills – a mighty force to be reckoned with.
Furthermore, players are able to call upon their allies during combos and chain attacks to inflict even greater damage! Hero Combos are executed at the end of a successful offensive sequence, uniting allied Warriors to unleash a synchronized attack that wipes out waves of oncoming foes, and Hero Chains link multiple Warriors together for powerful attacks while allowing the player to individually control any of the summoned heroes. These attacks increase the relationship between party members and in turn strengthen their abilities. Fighting alongside allies will also improve the player’s offensive and defensive capabilities by increasing Brave Rating. Once a player’s Brave Rating is at a high enough level, impressive Awakening Skills will be unlocked, which unleash a forceful barrage of attacks onto anything in its path.
Here are some new screenshots for your viewing pleasure:
