Plus, Taoist protection deity Nezha also confirmed.

Sterk and Kasumi won’t be the only guest characters in Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate.

Famitsu this week reveals a collaboration with Namco Bandai to bring Soulcalibur fighter Sophitia Alexandra to the game.

Another new character was also revealed. Wielding a fire-tipped spear, the magazine introduces the Taoist protection deity Nezha.

Thanks, Sinobi.

    Now i’m half expecting a Tales Character to be in a Warriors game—

    Yuri would fit well actually.

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Screw that. Just give me my Tales of Musou already :P

      EDIT: Just think, there would be armies of slime and stuff, and Barbatos could be the Lu Bu of the game, lol. We could also break open crates for apple/orange/etc. gels :3

      • Enigma_XIV

        Tales of the Heroes Twin Brave was kinda the answer for this

        • TetsuyaHikari

          I hate when people always throw that out when I try to talk about Tales of Musou. No, Twin Brave was NOT a Musou title. For fuck’s sake, put a Musou title next to it and you can clearly see they’re nothing alike.

          Totally different atmospheres. I don’t know why people keep comparing the two. I’ve played Twin Brave and yeah… It’s no Musou game =3=

      • Nitraion

        Nah give me GUST X TALES of musou… :P

        • Budgiecat

          Why not JoJo Musou?? or Bastard!! Musou??

  • Sal Romano

    Damn, for a Tecmo Koei “Ultimate” game, this one sure is full of surprises.

  • MosquitoLemon

    OMG give me mitsurugi

  • Archvile

    How odd there’s already a characters named Nezha in the game, so i guess there will be two now? o.o

  • ギャビン

    THIS IS AWESOME! Kasumi and Sophitia join forces!

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      And now we wait for Comiket…

      • Kobracon

        Get the Kleenex!

  • LennoG

    I don’t know why it says Nezha is a new character, he was already in the original WO3. Maybe they change his move and his weapon to a spear so it can fit more with the myth?

    • Kobracon

      Yeah thats weird. Mistranslation perhaps?

      • LennoG

        I don’t know, but I’m completely fine if they decide to remake him though, a fire-wielding weapon fits his myth more than his current weapon, and his current look is too… android like.

      • DrForbidden

        By the way, dude, off-topic, but how is your job search going? Any replies from the studios?

        • Kobracon

          Oh hey thanks for asking. I’m actually awaiting an offer letter from E1-Studio. Gonna start off as a Jr Designer. They are currently working on Hoodwink 2 and I’ll join when thats done. They say I might be working on Hoodwink 3. Guess I gotta start playing the first one…

          • DrForbidden

            That’s fantastic. I have no idea what E1 and Hoodwink are, though, but it’s great that you managed to get a decent job so quickly. Congratulations!

            • Kobracon

              E1-Studio is a local (Malaysian) game studio that gained my attention coz their game (Hoodwink) is possibly the only local game that I know of that was picked up by a major player in the industry…..even if it was EA….and….the game kinda sucked….but still!

    • zakou

      This is a guy? WTF? …

      • LennoG

        Yeah, he is a guy, but they always try to make his outlook seems like a girl than a boy for some reasons. And I think they even let a girl play him in some movies lol

      • DrForbidden
    • Ni ~Algidus~

      it’s pre-death nezha

  • Houeclipse

    Another milf has joined!! lol but serious I think mitsurugi or taki would fit better dont you think so too?

  • Sophitia


  • Nitraion

    Hmm sooo GUST X TALES game is really possible……

  • Budgiecat

    Why her??? Why not Valkyrie?? And Taki or Ivy?? And why not hit up Sega for Hotsuma from Shinobi PS2 and Kage from Virtua Fighter? And Segata Sanshiro?????

    • Nitraion

      Hmm i never thrilled to play musou game.. but if its collaboration its different stories….
      If you request Sega chara that would be TK Xgust X namdai X Sega game…. lol they already using sega chara on DOA game…..
      maybe sonic on musou game would be funny… or KAzuma kiryu feom yakuza game… XD

      • Budgiecat

        No we need Shinobi since Ryu Hayabusa is in it so we can finally have….

        Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja

        • AnimusVox
