Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Headed To PlayStation 3 and Vita [Update]

By Sato . June 18, 2013 . 7:49pm


This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine reveals that Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is headed to the PlayStation 3 and Vita.


The Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors crossover series’ third installment, Warriors Orochi 3, was released for PlayStation3, PSP, Xbox 360 and Wii U last year.


Not much has been revealed as to what extra content we’ll be seeing in Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, but there will be a new female character by the name of Tamomo-no-Mae, who was said to be the most beautiful and intelligent woman in Japan, according to Japanese mythology.


Update: In addition to Tamomo-no-Mae, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will be getting the expert swordsman Xu Shu from the Dynasty Warriors series. Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will also have a brand new story. Additionally, the game will be adding new elements that were seen in the PSP and Wii U versions, both of which were released a good while after the original PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version.


Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is slated to be released this September in Japan.

  • Ni

    thanks god that I never buy TK’s games when they’re released for the 1st time

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Well with the main warriors series games you miss a lot of shit. The first iterations of the DW line is meant to be played with their Xtreme Legends expansion for maximum playability.

  • Makira

    DAMN IT.

    whatever, i’ll be skipping this one. especially with DW 8 right around the corner.

  • Learii

    new story yay any new chars?

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      It says Tamamo-No-Mae…she’s new…

      • Learii

        ya but that just one I want more lol like fist of the north star chars or something

    • PoweredByHentai


    • Ixbran

      If you dont have the PSP or WiiU versions of WO3 (Special and Hyper) then that means 4 new characters, plus Xu Shu from DW7E and the newly announced female character Mae Tamamo.

  • Warboss Aohd

    wow, way to screw me over twice for getting the 360 version Koei.

  • eilegz

    not again…. sigh how about the normal use of DLC….

    • Ryumoau

      yes, Koei still doesn’t understand that concept except for overpriced weapons and reused maps.

      The empires series is a great example of something that could have been dlc for the main game instead of overpriced standalone thing. Koei is just being greedy, plain and simple. Its sad to say it. :(

  • Mr_SP

    If there is an English version, I will get it.

    …Though that’s at least partially because I didn’t get other Warriors Orochi 3 versions.

    • Skode

      If there is an english version i wouldnt keep my hopes up for say english vocals or even a 360 release but still i will take what i can get.

      • Mr_SP

        I haven’t seen English voiceovers from Koei for a while now. I don’t have *any* hopes of that.

        • Pichi

          At least we have English vocals for DW8.

  • XypherCode

    How about we get it as DLC for PS3 and Wii U, Koei? lol


    Xu Shu <3

    i am coming, for you

  • TheExile285

    Cool…. But I want DoAU for my Vita too Temco!

  • TheExile285

    Wait so we are getting this plus even more content?


    Yep, just take my money Temco.

  • Talearc

    Thanks God, my prayer have been answered LOL

  • Another WiiU exclusive that comes back to us. I knew I could believe in you, TecmoKoei.

  • Kalis Konig

    I love this game but I hate Koei’s DLC practices. damn near 100 bucks worth of content up on the eshop. Guess I will have to slowly buy it all over the next few months.

    • XypherCode

      I just don’t like how they always port their to other platforms with less than a year of release then they won’t offer the update to existing owners of the game. But I guess I’ll still buy this then. xD

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    I want to get this for the Vita!

  • Yohann Piga

    Amazing! The Vita’s finally getting more and more awesome games!!! Can’t wait!!!

  • Christopher Kelly

    I beat WO3 once & I’ll gladly do it again.

  • Skode

    Will this include Momiji and Rachel etc as well? This game is a must have for me

    • Aunna Terrell

      Knowing KOEI, yes, it should include both them and the other two characters they added for Special and Hyper.

      • Skode

        Yeah its since been confirmed that they will all be included… its effectively WOZ Hyper Ultimate. Safe money says this will be a japanese exclusive

        • Aunna Terrell

          lol I know. XDD I want the game in English too… But it looks like I’ll have to import it now. *in a corner of woe*

        • TheExile285

          what says what? we are getting DoA5U so why not this?

          • Skode

            This is a spin off to a spin off to a spin off… i dont like admitting it but the demand for this probably aint as high as it could have been after a series of released which were effectively the same main game but with two new characters each time and some minor additions. DOA5U is only the second game in the DOA series to reach the consoles, there is as such some more limited scope for it to be in demand in the west.

  • Yan Zhao

    All my DLC for WO3 better be compatible with this, I swear.

  • I’m suprised how people are easily swayed by this, well at least it doesn’t just seem like an upgraded port like what they did for razor’s edge, good for vita owners they need more games

  • Göran Isacson

    A new story? Kinda curious if it’s ALL new story, or if it’s just supposed to be an extra stage or “post-game conclusion” story.

  • Ryumoau

    i’ll only get this if its released at a reasonable price. I’m not spending another $50 on the same game with a couple new things added.
    But with how greedy Koei has been with their recent digital only releases, i wouldn’t be surprised if they charged that much again.

  • Bio_liquid

    All I can say is…. 2013-2014 is a great year for gaming

  • Đặng Tấn Đức

    Wait, Tamamo-no-Mae?

    • MXC

      Exactly my thoughts :)
      Minus the charming fox tail and ears though :(

  • Ixbran

    Info on the new story guys: WO3 featured 3 different endings: One ending with the heroes defeating the hydra and ending it there. One ending involving taking down Orochi X and everything being peaceful. And another ending featuring the death of Orochi X, but also the destruction of the world he made, resulting in all the heroes being sent back to their respective time lines.

    Koei is expanding on the Death of Hydra ending. After the Death of the Hydra Mae Tamamo enters the dimensional rift and revives the original Orochi, and from there She, Daji and the revived true Orochi return to wreak havoc on the human and mystic forces. It is heavily implied that there will be an all new 5th chapter.

    Legends regarding her character, for those who dont know of her, state she was considered one of japans most feared demons in folk lore, along side Shuten Dōji. She is also considered the Japanese fox demon equivalent to that of China’s Daji, so it is hinted the two will have a connection. Various other legends state she has fought both Seimei Abe and Taigong Wang.
    Also, here’s a picture of Mae’s WO3U design if any are interested.

    • Solomon_Kano

      That’s a nice design.

      • Aunna Terrell

        She’s beautiful~ <3
        Though, I'm sure her in-game incarnation won't look as beautiful as her artwork.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, it’s kind of a pity knowing her character model won’t look as nice.

  • Solomon_Kano

    This being TK, the Vita version is pretty much guaranteed to be localized… interest piqued.

  • Testsubject909

    I’m interested in the Vita version.
