Soulcalibur’s Sophitia Joins Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate

By Spencer . July 30, 2013 . 6:52pm

sopWarriors Orochi 3 Ultimate has a mashup of Tecmo Koei characters including Kasumi from Dead or Alive, Sterk from the Atelier series, and Ryu from Ninja Gaiden. So, even though Sophitia Alexandra isn’t from a Tecmo Koei title she doesn’t stand out too much.

 

Famitsu announced Sophitia will be a guest character in Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. Nata, a deity that wields a fire tipped spear, is also a newcomer for the game.

 

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is slated for release on September 26 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

  • Ooh Bee

    I swear to GOD they better release this in the US now.

    • Testsubject909

      YHWH is currently unavailable, please send your prayers to Hitoshura.

  • evilmajikman

    Better get a physical release in US this time. Don’t puss out and give us digital only anymore. >:(

    • TheHolypopeofgaming

      If they don’t I’m importing from Europe.

    • TheExile285

      DD is better than nothing.

      I always like to refer to Namco and OP Unlimited Cruise 3DS. Localized it for EU DD. Didnt give America ****….

    • Ixbran

      its not Koeis fault WO3 wasn’t released physically in america on the PS3, its Sony of America’s fault. They got some wierd rule that games not dubbed in english cant be put on disk without paying an extra fee of some kind.

    • Testsubject909

      I agree person with the Taimanin Asagi profile picture.

    • $7573679

      They have digital of WO3?

  • Josephl64

    Every time something new pops up with this game, it’s always just another reason to buy it ~

  • TheExile285

    Come on Temco. Bring this to America. My Vita is hungry for a good beat em and it was denied Pirate Warriors 2 :(

    • Altin

      I think that chances are good that they are going to release this. Heck, TK even is going to bring us Toukiden and Warriors Orochi 3 got already released over here.

  • ndjn3979

    boobs? yes

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

      Sophitities

      • Sardorim

        Hope they add in Cassandra alongside her in the next Main Warrior Orochi title.

        Man the roster is gonna be packed after DW8/XL/E, SW3(and SWC2nd), on top of the other franchise characters!

        • fearlubu

          I would assume that if another SC character would be in, it wouldnt be cassandra; her costume could be sophitia’s alt costume though.

    • KuroNathan

      Hey look! Boobs!

    • Testsubject909

      Honestly, considering the type of attacks that Sophitia can pull off. It’s her lower body that you’ll end up looking at. One particular jump grab will have you staring straight between those milky thighs.

      Mmmm… Milky Thighs…

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Koei is really trying to make Warriors Orochi 3 game have more than 150 char here lol.^_^

    • Testsubject909

      Let’s aim for 200!

  • RichyGaming

    In that case, can we get Arc System Work characters in too? Haha

  • Grape Monet

    “Nata”? Isn’t that the Japanese name for Nezha? So is this a new character with the same name?

    • Aesma

      Yeah, that’s what I thought too. Isn’t Nata-Taishi = Nezha? Even in the Japanese voice, it’s clear that Wu Kong call Nezha, Nata…

      • Ixbran

        in WO3 Nezha is shown as a cyborg esq fighter, playing on the legend that he had Died, then was brought back to life.

        this new version of Nezha is theorized to be his pre-death version in the WO-universe.

        • Aesma

          Hmm… I see… thanks.

  • サレム

    I never liked Sophitia. Would be all over a Cassandra reveal tho.
    I wonder if we’ll see more Namco characters in this.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

    Her range is pretty small in Soul Calibur, wonder how they’re going to work out her combat in this

    • ndjn3979

      Her crouch dash covers distance fast tho

  • Nitraion

    Crossfinger there will be Gust X Tales of game someday……
    Whatever genre it is….

    • AnimusVox

      So long as it’s not a social card game for smartphones I’m all for that collaboration.

  • Stalemeat

    USA USA! Come on, you can do it. PS3 or Vita I don’t care I just want a us release…physical.

  • AnimusVox

    I imagine this is pre Soul Calibur V. When she isn’t an edgemaster and going kinda DBZ.

    • Ryuhza Murphy Timmuns

      That was the spirit of Soul Calibur (the sword) posing as Sophitia, in order to influence Patroklos. Sophitia herself is dead or something else as a result of poor writing.

  • https://twitter.com/RaiohV Raioh

    I would have loved to see Nightmare included as well. Would have made another Lu Bu like villain~<3

  • NightzeroAX

    If we don’t get this in this in the west [insert long paragraph of hatred, anger and sorrow].

    • Vash bane

      Take this! My love! My hate! And all of my sorrow!

      LOCALIZATIONNN!

  • Steven Hunt

    I bought Hyper for Wii U assuming that it’d be the last and ultimate version of the game. how naive I was.

  • wererat42

    Why not just make a brand new title with nothing but crossover characters?

    Warriors Orochi is getting kind of crowded.

    • Ixbran

      because Warriors Orochi is a cross over game?

      yes it has original characters, but its primary reason for existence is combining two series (DW and SW) into one. That’s the point of the game.

      • Testsubject909

        Combining two series and original characters. And with Warriors Orochi 3, being a hodgepodge of multiple characters in Tecmo and Koei’s franchises.

        So I for one approve all of this and am just anxiously awaiting to see if it’ll get an English Retail localization anywhere.

  • tubers

    She’s so freaking hot in that 2D artwork :P

    http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-03/art/sc4-sophitia.jpg

    • Testsubject909

      Your direct link doesn’t work.

      Also she’s crying in that picture. Interesting touch.

  • Vernauth

    I guess next time we will get Lily or Nina from Tekken or Alissa from God Eater

  • KyoyaHibari

    Sophie>Cassie

    • Testsubject909

      But both at the same time is good.

  • Learii

    her seriously? put Ivy not her Ivy got bigger boobs and better weapon XD

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      We already have Ivy’s Weapon *looks at Kai*

      • Testsubject909

        Though you can say that for Sophitia, we already have Achilles… Though Achilles is a power type. Sophitia might be more Speed or Tech type. Hell maybe Wonder.

        Plus Sophitia’s nicer to look at… And has a few attacks that you wouldn’t mind suffering through.

  • Sardorim

    My head canon: Sophitia received a vision of Soul Caliber V. Not wanting to be part of that she faked her death and hopped game universes with Cassandra. Finding a home here she sent Cassandra back to go retrieve her friend Taki to save her from the torment that is Soul Caliber V.

    Happy End.

  • DriftSlave

    So Bamco gave the okie for a SC guest character in WO3…well thats something considering that SC is know for guest characters, it’s nice to see them getting dropped into other games too. So all we need now is a Digital Download release date for North America and I can start caring.

    • Ixbran

      who knows, maybe in soulcalibure VI, we might get a dynasty warriors, samurai warriors, or warriors orochi character guest character. that would be epic!

      • AnimusVox

        Huh, that’s actually a pretty awesome idea.

      • http://queensblade.net/index.php/characters/cattleya gulabjamuns

        lol, Soul Calibur vs Dynasty Warriors!

        Still, I’d prefer to see my dream of Soul Calibur vs Samurai Shodown or Last Blade finally realized some day, but I’d gladly take one with DN too!

    • Testsubject909

      Retail!

  • Monterossa

    Please localize this or I’m gonna get real mad!!

  • https://twitter.com/TSCPS TSCPS

    Where is my friend Patroklos Alexander?

  • Gilgamesh2025

    That’s awesome! I love Sophitia! :)

    • Testsubject909

      And according to all the R34 of her. So does the internet.

      I was trying to say that in a positive manner but I’m not sure anymore…

  • $7573679

    They need to bring localization news fast! It’s looking too good!

    • Testsubject909

      We damn better get retail this time around too!

      I’ll buy it day 1 for the PS3/Vita, both of em!

  • Ixbran

    We gots Scans! Sophitia Alexandra and Pre-Death Nezha.

    • Testsubject909

      I swear if we don’t get the retail version of the Vita game…

      I’ll import it as I did my physical copy of Warriors Orochi 3 from Zavvi.

      If EU isn’t getting it… I’ll import it straight from Japan unless the Asia version has English subtitles…

      … Man region free is awesome.

  • Linhua

    … DAMN IT they got Sophie.

    *Imports*

  • Testsubject909

    Oh hey… While I’m at it…

    Pssst… Tecmo Koei… Now would be an awesome time for Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Empires…

    Just saying… Just saying…

  • Spirit Macardi

    Meh, not a Namco character that I’d like to have seen in this game (though granted, I didn’t even know that was in the realm of possibilities until now), but I suppose it could be much worse… it could have been Pac-Man that they chose…

    Also, who else is expecting them to announce Kenshiro and Luffy for this in the coming days?

  • fairysun

    Err … why Sophitia?
    We have pacifist woman already … Jean.
    Woman with sword and shield … Nu Wa.
    Woman with children … ah that must be it. But her children are not in the game.

    • http://thespellcraftcolumn.wordpress.com Rudolph Consuegra

      But I don’t think there’s someone who does a groin attack and apologizes for it.

  • Tee Niitris

    Geez, stop strangling my wallet.

  • MagisterXII

    I like Sophitia, but I want my favourite character Taki to be in this! Oh well, this is weird and interesting news, we better be getting this game!

  • Yan Zhao

    Kind of an odd character choice to be put in a Warriors game. Siegfried or Mitsurugi seems more appropriate to slay 1000s of peons.

    • Nitraion

      TK love boobies… nuff said

  • http://queensblade.net/index.php/characters/cattleya gulabjamuns

    They had to do it, didn’t they? They just had to make me go and want to buy it again for a 3rd time after I’ve already bought it full price twice… FFFFFF

  • zaidandzhadow

    Would you imagine Nightmare or Siegfried in a arriors game that would be orgasmic literally

  • Göran Isacson

    I am eagerly awaiting the appearance of Travis Touchdown, Megaman and Tak Fuji as an actual playable character any day now. Because shut up and take my money, that’s why.

  • Ixbran

    And now we got renders everyone

  • raymk

    Well this kinda confired this coming to the west now. They wouldnt throw in kasumi and sophitia without the west in mind.

  • Vash bane

    I wasn’t expecting her to be in the mix. pretty cool
