We get new details on character additions and a new trailer for the upcoming release of Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate.

Releasing this September in the West Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate adds a host of new warriors to the playable roster, including guests from the Bandai’s Soulcalibur and Tecmo’s Atelier series’.

The list of character additions is as follows (via Gematsu);

  • Sophitia Alexandra is a holy warrior and mother of two who was sent on a mission by the Olympian god of fire and smithing, Hephaestus. Her goal was to destroy the evil sword known as Soul Edge. However, her daughter was later taken hostage, and she was forced to fight to protect the evil sword. On her way home after the end of the battle she was swallowed up by the rift in space-time and brought to the Orochi dimension.
  • Sterkenburg Cranach is a former knight of the Kingdom of Arland. Although normally quiet, calm and collected, he roars into action when seeking information about his former king’s whereabouts or when his sense of chivalry is put to the test. After escorting Princess Meruru back to Arls, he was returning to Arland, but was sucked into the rift in space-time and found himself transported to this unknown world.
  • Nezha is a young officer from the Mystic Realm, born in the area that overlapped the realms of humans and mystics. His skill in got him accepted to the Mystic Army, but he lives to test himself in the most difficult battles he can find, and he freely wields his Fire Spear in action, no matter what situation he might encounter.
  • Tamamo is a bewitching mystic that appeared following the defeat of the Hydra. She has a very high opinion of herself and harbors a deep hatred for humans. Tamamo thrives on the chaos and negativity that a world at war can bring. By using the inscriptions on her scroll, she is able to interfere with the efforts of the humans and appears to have teamed up with Da Ji in order to carry out some mysterious plot.
  • Yinglong is an officer from the Mystic Realm’s ancient past. He fought admirably alongside Fu Xi and the other mystics against the demon hordes and is highly esteemed by his peers and an inspiration for his subordinates. Conversely, his sense of honesty leads him to never question the position of others, and he simply follows his convictions, which makes him somewhat inflexible at times.

They also released a brand new trailer for the game, which you can check out below;

Some screens were included at the source as well, however they were 1080p and therefore not sourced from the Vita version of the game. If you’re interested in checking them out anyway, there’s a gallery available at Gematsu.

Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate is set to release September 2nd in North America and September 5th in Europe.

  • Reads duel mode. This is the only mode that I ever want in these games. Finally my time has come!

      Have you played this game before, how was it?

      • I have, it’s really good. It’s basically a Samurai Warriors game but with characters from both Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors. You have different “hubs” from which you can talk to villagers, upgrade armor, undertake quests, etc. There are so many characters that it’ll blow your mind. I know there are at least 132 playable characters…

          Dammmmm so would you recomend this game over Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends?

          • I would. The combat mechanics, though similar, are still different enough to make me favor Warriors Orochi over Dynasty Warriors. As an added note: Xtreme Legends has duels in the game, but no standalone duel mode. 😉

            Cool gotcha 😉

    Looking forward to annihilating my enemies!
