Plus, first-run costumes for Kaguya, Ichida, and Zhao Yun.

Famitsu has gone up with first images of Sterkenburg “Sterk” Cranach, Atelier Meruru‘s self-proclaimed knight, in Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate.

Sterkenburg Cranach
Voice: Jurota Kosugi
Weapon: Sword
Origin: An original knight of the Arland Republic from Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland

He is composed and silent, but speaks passionately about the spirit of chivalry. After finishing his escort mission with Princess Meruru, he returned to Arland, but ended up being swallowed by a space-time distortion where he was transported to another world.

Additionally, Famitsu reveals consumers who purchase the first-run version of the game will receive a product code to download Halloween costumes for Kaguya, Mitsunari Ishida, and Zhao Yun, which were determined by a user vote.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is due out for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Japan on September 26.

    His art….is very……epic.

  • DichaTesoro

    He really stands out in the lineup, but looks cool anyway.

  • Barrit

    Damn, that’s so cool!

  • Bobby Jennings

    STERK! Hopefully this will get people to buy the Atelier games here in the west.

  • SigmaNHK

    I was never joking when I said I would love an Atelier Warriors game. Please Tecmo.

    • MosquitoLemon

      dear god, imagine Empires-style gameplay where you take turns crafting and destroying hordes

  • MosquitoLemon

    Oh no, not Sterk, you cannot combine this much awesome in one game. If Koei puts in Esty Dee I will be forced to buy all teh Orochis

  • Eclipse

    At first I thought that Sterk would’ve looked a little awkward in this due
    to the different art styles, but he actually looks pretty awesome in this!

    It’d be nice if more GUST characters join in (Flay Gunnar & Linca, please).

    • Kurisu Makise

      Considering how sexy Sterk looks in this style, I can’t even wrap my mind about how awesome Linca would be rendered. Be still my beating heart.

    • Sieghardt

      oh man, I hadnt even thought about that, Flay would be AMAZING

  • Nitraion

    Awesome arland warriors: Sterk,Gio,Esty and Mimi
    Awesome dusk warriors(so far): Keith, Linca and Logix
    O yeah how about ar tonelico and other atelier titles?
    Maybe they should change title like Tecmo-Gust smash bros :V

  • Karmistral

    Sterk is too perfect for this game– THANK YOU TK

  • Alex Loh

    I expect Atelier Musou will be done :P
    cant wait to get this game :)
