It’s Happening, An Atelier Character Is Joining One Of Koei’s Warriors Games

By Spencer . July 16, 2013 . 7:36pm


An Atelier and Warriors crossover was inevitable. Hisashi Koinuma, Executive Vice President of Tecmo Koei, even teased to Siliconera that they were considering "Atelier Warriors" when we talked to him at E3.

The crossover is happening sooner than we expected with Sterkenburg Cranach aka "Sterk" from Atelier Rorona (and the two other games in the Rorona trilogy) joining Warrior Orochi 3 Ultimate.


Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate also has characters from Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, Bladestorm, Warriors: Legends of Troy, Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll, and of course Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors. The Tecmo Koei family reunion comes out on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on September 26.

  • Craig Mikucki

    You had me at Bladestorm.

  • TheExile285

    Lol, this better come to NA…

    • Skode

      and europe

      • Keine

        its region free so it doesnt matter… unless you dont like ordering online

      • batanen

        And hopefully there’s is an upgrade patch available too if one owns the base game.

        • Slayven19

          An update patch for this company? LOL

          • Monterossa

            And disc version, for god sake.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Darn….hopefully Mimi shows up later too :(

  • FetusZero

    Now, tell us when we will get Atelier Escha & Logy, Koei :]

    • Vesperion

      Not till it shows up like a ninja on PSN first :)

  • LanceHeart

    I wonder what he’ll look like in the Warriors engine…

  • サレム

    Can I split the moon in half this game?

    • Testsubject909

      You can completely re-arrange time and space.

      That’s something.

  • KR-Joker

    Hell yes, lots of potential here, I want to see Pepperoni punch Nobunaga in the face

  • Spirit Macardi

    PLEASE dub this game so we can get Liam O’Brien back :D

    Granted I would have preferred Arlin from Atelier Iris, but Sterk is pretty damn awesome too. Plus I guess it’d be hard to do Arlin considering he was one of Steve Blum’s pre-union roles.

    • This. Although I was hugely disappointed when I tried to play Rorona in dub only to hear O’Brien and nothing was voiced, even the assignment cutscene was silent.
      If WO3U were having a dub, I would hear O’Brien more than in Atelier :|

  • MrTyrant

    Now I want this game.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips


  • Raoni Marques

    Logix is all I want in this game now

  • Sterk’s a fantastic pick for this, what with his use of claymores and the like. Enderk Jadd or Douglas MacLean from the Salburg games would also be good picks (or, for comedy value, Hermina :V), as might Flay Gunnar from Mana Khemia.

  • ooooooooooh this is interesting news, i definitely wanna see how it works out though i wanna punch tecmo koei for re-re-releasing this game but at least something worthwhile may come of it

  • MrTyrant

    If they add Ayesha cast better be Keithgrift or Linca if it’s woman.

  • Nitraion

    Hmm Gio,mimi and sterk from arland, Linca, keith and logix from dusk series
    If they wanna do this i wish all chara is cel-shaded but i dunno how atelier chara be translated to warriors engine…

  • Josephl64

    Now it’s a must buy, hopefully more atelier characters will appear in this or maybe an actual atelier warriors?

  • Draparde

    Awesome :o i can only hope for more~

  • Warboss Aohd

    why not Grey or Poe?

  • Anime10121

    Figured it’d be Sterk! Havent played much of the Arland games, but I do remember Sterk was awesome!

  • Zak Ledward

    Wlda preferred Mimi, Ayesha, or some OTHER important character : not too much of a fan of Sterk

  • psycho_bandaid

    He should start off his story in cell shaded style, only to have a jarring transition to more conventional 3D graphics.

    “Where the hell did my outline go?”

  • Thuan Nguyen

    Because Orochi had played Atelier and loved Sterk, he summoned Sterk as a slave

  • Prinnydoom

    Hell yeah. ^__^ Go sterkenburger!

  • Monterossa

    Wow…. I kinda like Sterk but I hope the girls from Arland series will be joined too.

    • Josephl64

      with that space-time distortion, once can only hope it expands and the distortion takes over all of Arland so we can have them appear :)

  • Aunna Terrell

    lol I joked about how Sterk could be in WO with my boyfriend’s little sister one night… And he’s now totally in it! XD

    • Testsubject909

      He’s looking good.

      I wonder how he plays.

  • XiaomuArisu

    After destroying an entire army
    “Still not enough….”

  • Bell

    This is a dream come true. THIS IS EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED! We need more Sterkenburg! The world needs more Sterkenburg! The UNIVERSE needs more Sterkenburg!

  • Dokuro

    “Atelier warriors” what is that?

  • Slayven19

    Just make that atelier dynasty warriors already because its been teased 2 times as of now. I hope this game comes over to the west, I mean it should without question but you never know.

  • Eileen Sy

    I wonder which design they’ll use? Personally I was always more fond of his design in Atelier Rorona.

  • Mavalex

    They are about to witness….HIS TRANSCENDENT POWER

  • idofgrahf

    the cloth, the expression, absent of a scar, this guy reminds me of Squall from FFVIII.
