New Playable Characters Revealed Along With New Trailer And Screens

Koei Tecmo America released all kinds of new info on Omega Force's upcoming Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate today, including the first trailer, five new playable characters, and a number of in-game screenshots.

Three of the five characters coming to Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate are original to the series. They are: Nezha, a young officer from the Mystic Realm who wields a flaming spear, Yinglong, a stern Mystic Realm officer from the distant past, and a regal-looking robed woman named Tamamo. Screens of the new characters in cutscenes and on the battlefield are available in the gallery below. Screens are from the PS3 and PS4 versions.

Along with the three original characters, crossover characters Sophitia Alexandra from the Soul Calibur series, and Sterk from the Atelier series will be joining Orochi’s roster. The characters have received updated backstories involving space-time rifts to explain their appearance in the Warriors universe. 

In addition to new characters, Omega Force’s slash-‘em-up action game introduces new gameplay to the series, including aerial combo actions and the ability to change battle style on-the-fly, new storylines and scenarios, and several new stages from the Soul Calibur, Atelier, Dynasty Warriors, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Samurai Warriors series.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will be released for PS4, PS3, Vita, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on September 2. The PlayStation 3 and Vita versions will only be available digitally and will cost $49.99 and $39.99, respectively. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will also be available at retail for $59.99. For more on Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, check out our earlier preview.

  • I'm so frickin excited for this.

  • I have the Japanese version which released a month ago in Japan. Don't buy this unless you want to buy Orochi 2 over again. It's basically Orochi 2, with some new characters.
  • Don't forget Kyubi and Hundun, those two are new. I wonder how past Nezha will react to present Nezha, hopefully past Nezha won't require fun gameplay to tolerate (I hated Nezha in WO3H until I tried playing as him). I'll wait until these go on sale due to already owning Hyper.

  • Why are we throwing in chracters from the other games.........reasons. just give us a nice character creator and ill be happy

  • Sophita's design looks pretty good. That slender face makes her look older.

  • Might get it, might not. Haven't decided yet. Another thing: what happened to character creation, Koei?!

  • Yep, day one for me now.

  • Also, apparently Kasumi from DOA
