KOEI Tecmo announced at the “Omega-Force 20th Live” event on Saturday that it will release the Warriors Orochi 4 (Musou Orochi 3) game this year. Omega-Force is returning to produce the title, the first new one in five years.
The first Warriors Orochi (Musou Orochi) game featured characters from the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises when it shipped in 2007 for PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360.
Warriors Orochi 3 (Musou Orochi 2 due to a renumbering change in the West) debuted in 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and the Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate update shipped for PS3 and PS Vita in Japan in September 2013. A PS4 version launched in June 2014, and a Switch version launched last November.
In the West, the game launched in September 2014 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and PS Vita. Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate added characters from the Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, Soul Calibur and Atelier series, among others, for a total of more than 142 playable characters.
