Another pair of newcomers has been confirmed to appear in Tecmo Koei’s upcoming re-release Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. Through a collaboration with Namco, SoulCalibur‘s lovely goddess Sophitia Alexandra will make a playable appearance in the game. Even though the SoulCalibur series is home to several characters who probably would have been a better fit for this cameo, Sophitia is my favorite SC character and I’m simply delighted to see her in this. The other newcomer is the spear wielding embodiment of the Chinese deity Nezha. He looks cool and all, but Sophitia!
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will be available for PS Vita and PS3 in Japan on September 26th. An international release hasn’t been confirmed yet, but let’s keep hope alive. View a few new screens of the game below.
