Today Koei Tecmo hosted a livestream from Tokyo, Japan, showing off the very first look at Warriors Orochi 4.
We got to see some battle gameplay running on PS4, and the reveal of one of the new playable character, who apparently is one of the game’s villains (or at least the driving force behind its events), Zeus.
We also got the first full trailer, showing the new game in all its animated glory. Last, but not least, the official website was updated with artwork of Zeus himself, and a first look at the “sacred treasures,” magical weapons that will play a central role in the game.
If you’re wondering why the game is titled Musou Orochi 3 in Japanese, the reason is somehow similar to the discrepancy in the Dynasty Warriors series, but this time around it’s because the second game (Warriors Orochi 2) wasn’t called Musou Orochi 2 in Japan, but Musou Orochi Maou Sairin. When Japan continued with Musou Orochi 2, the western side of the company called it Warriors Orochi 3.
Warriors Orochi 4 will launch for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in North America and Europe this year, while Japan will get only the PS4 and Switch versions on September 27th.
