To be honest, I don’t know how the announcement of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate slipped past me. The third installment in the series is actually my favorite Omega Force game, mixing characters from Samurai Warriors with Dynasty Warriors in a clash of utter glory and fandom. The Wii U received an enhanced edition at the system’s launch, but Tecmo Koei isn’t giving them the exclusive for all that long as the Playstation 3 and Vita will be receiving an “ultimate” version later this year.
Along with tweaks to the combat system, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will feature new characters, such as Kasumi from the Dead or Alive series. This definitely isn’t the only Team Ninja character to show up as Ayane, Momiji and Rachel all made appearances in the crazy timeline. Tecmo Koei has published some screenshots of Kasumi in action with even more to be revealed as we approach the game’s September 26 release in Japan (with a North American date still unknown).
