Musou OROCHI 2 Special (無双OROCHI2 Special) is the Japan only PSP port of Warriors Orochi 3. It includes every character and feature from the original game with a few additions.
Players who pre-ordered this title could obtain a downloadable serial code for ten PSP customizable themes. Two of the themes are the two new characters in this port. The other eight are Mitsunari, Wang Yuanji, Kaguya, Cao Pi, Zhao Yun, Sanzang, Yukimura, and Daqiao.
- Inserting saved data from the PS3 version will automatically unlock all of the characters right from the start. Players can continue from their PS3 data.
- A new four player VS feature called Battle Royale Mode is introduced. It is vaguely reminiscent of the multiplayer mode in Shin Sangoku Musou VS. Rules such as "Tactical Items" and "Competitive Missions" are included in this mode. Furthermore, players may choose to battle against the A.I. or themselves.
- The open camp area from the console version has been removed and replaced with a menu screen.
- Due to the game's limited size, the ability to swim through deep water has been removed. Draw distance is limited. During Musou attacks, the character's mouths show no motion, yet their vocal tracks play. As a backdrop, there are mountains shown in the distance.
- Downloadable content is character themed wallpapers, icons, and music. Most of it is reused content from the PS3 version.
The original cast is present. Two new additions to the cast are included in this title.
- Due to the very close range camera, some projectiles cannot be seen at times. This glitch is mostly visible when playing as Orochi and performing his C3 or Musou attack away from an object.
A Twitter challenge campaign was held for Warriors fans regarding the new original character appearing in Special. If fans could correctly guess the character's identity in the campaign's Twitter link, they could gain a prize if they were correct. There were prizes available for people who correctly guessed with no hint (3 person limit) and for those who were right once there was a hint (May 21st; 5 person limit). The new character's identity was officially revealed to the public on June 7th.
Fans with a my GAMECITY account could vote for a maximum of five characters in a character popularity poll.

Channel α's eighth episode featured this game as its focus. A Battle Royale tournament between five video game news reporting companies took place with Akihiro Suzuki present. The winner of the tournament was Dengeki Playstation.
