With the positive reception received by Hyrule Warriors on Wii U and 3DS, and the recent announcement of Fire Emblem Warriors for the Switch, we here at Let’s Play Video Games thought now would be a good time to look at what other Nintendo franchises might make good Dynasty Warriors-style action games going forward. Without further ado, here’s our top picks for future Nintendo Warriors titles.
Doshin the Giant Warriors
Doshin may have been known for his friendly, benevolent nature, but he was still a huge, powerful giant. Against his ferocious might, armies would likely fall like easily batted away flies. Does that sound familiar? Easily defeating large numbers of trivial enemies is the whole point of Warriors-style games.
Doshin the Giant may be remembered for his caring nature, but in Doshin the Giant Warriors he will be remembered for tearing shit up and smashing down some puny humans.
Chibi Robo Warriors
Forget cleaning up your house, in Chibi Robo Warriors, Chibi is cleaning up crime behind your skirting board and dust-busting bad behavior on the mantelpiece. Wielding that electrical plug like a flail, Chibi is now going to improve the quality of your life by kicking arse in spectacular fashion.
Electrical elemental attacks can be powered by your plug. Water attacks by using taps. Fire-based attacks by burning down the kitchen in an electrical fire. Chibi Robo Warriors is fun for the whole family.
Rhythm Heaven Warriors
Dynasty Warriors games involve too much mindless button mashing. Everything changes with Rhythm Heaven Warriors, where your button mashing will have to be slightly less mindless and slightly more rhythmic.
Tap and flick your way through catchy pop tunes and colourful 2D animated art while murdering countless enemies in the newest addition to the Nintendo Warriors family.
Wave Race Warriors
What’s better than beating down hordes of enemies with ease? Doing so at high-speed, on a hot sunny day, in the ocean, on a badass jet ski. Wave Race Warriors combines the refreshing thrill of murdering countless enemies with the arguably even more refreshing thrill of high-speed jet ski racing.
Speed around that buoy, grind up a face using your new diamond-tipped propeller blades, murder waves of enemies while you murder sweet waves with your rad tricks.
Remember the Wii? Upon an internal memory chip somewhere in the world you’ve likely got countless of your friends and family’s faces created and lovingly stored. Let’s put them to good use by plastering their faces onto the mindless drone enemies you tend to slice down in Warriors.
Why mow down mobs of unnamed enemies when you could be slaughtering a crowd of that guy Billy who you once drunkenly invited to hang out in your living room at a party.
Wii Warriors: in spite of the name it’s not about urine-fueled combat.
WarioWare Warriors …. Wariors Ware?
What’s the best way to inject some challenge and excitement into mowing down waves of enemies? Well it might just be WarioWare mini games. Pick your nose to pick off the competition. Slap a bottom to slap your foes. Use the Switch’s many motion and touch controls in order to brutally slaughter all who stand before you in glorious low brow humour fueled, fast paced murder fest.
