Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Heading To The West, According To Australian Leak

By Spencer . April 28, 2014 . 11:33pm


It looks like Tecmo Koei will release Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate outside of Japan. Australia’s Classification Board rated the hack and slash game, but the rating did not indicate what platform(s) we’ll see the game on. In Japan, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and on June 26 it will be on PlayStation 4 too.


Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate includes all of the changes and extra characters from the Wii U version, Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper plus even more characters. Nezha, Yinglong, Hundun, Kyubi no Kitsune, Tamamo no Mae, Sterk from the Atelier games, Kasumi from Dead or Alive 5, and Sophitia from the Soulcalibur series are playable. Omega Force also tweaked the game with a new air rave, a six character Musou attack when you’re playing co-op, and a Triple Rush move.

    Yay~? lol I can’t wait to see if it’s true or not. I’ve been waiting for this~ But mostly bc I wanted to play as my DW Hubby Xu Shu more than anyone else.

    BUT let me go ahead and claim Sterk while I’m at it! :3

  • OrangeArmy

    I have played this game more than enough, but I would buy (and Platinum) again if it came out in the West, gotta get some Sophitia in my Musou.

  • leingod

    if it runs decently on Vita (DW8 runs like crap) I’d gladly give it a purchase :D

    • Thats why you get it on PS4 =P

      Though reading I saw that some of the trophy requirements are lower on the Vita due the frame rates etc

      • Anihilator

        It’s ok to play it on Vita. But I will get the PS4ce version. Anyway if the words is true, I will not wait another 6-8 month to play localized version

        • GibbRS

          We can always hope for Cross Buy, tho it’s a slim to none chance.

      • Death Metal

        If DW8 on PS4 is any indication of the standard quality from Koei on that platform, I will have to avoid this. Choppy framerate and less than spectacular graphics really don’t say much about the new gen.

      • leingod

        I get it, but for some reason I enjoy the Warriors games a lot more on the go. DW NEXT is one of the DW games I’ve played the most, even with the annoying gimmicky minigames… that’s why I’d rather get it on the Vita.

    • AheadWHAT

      I’ve owned Musou Orochi 2 Ultimate for the PS Vita for a couple of months now and the frame rate is definitely good. Whenever lag did occur it was only for about three seconds. Dynasty Warriors 8 XL for the PS Vita feels sluggish compared to Musou Orochi 2 Ultimate.

      • leingod

        Nice to know DW8XL is an isolated case. I couldn’t get why it was so sluggish compared to NEXT.

  • Sesshomaru


  • I am soo Freaking happy about this news

  • Cool. Great. Awesome.

    Now, let’s hear some confirmation that Gust’s Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea is coming Westward too, please :)

  • wererat42

    Question is will it be PSN only or will we get a physical release?

    • Aunna Terrell

      Watch it be PSN only for NA and physical for EU/AU again, like Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires.

      • Ixbran

        Sony’s NA Branch being all “no english dub, no disk” policy is really annoying and it just doesn’t make sense. So many people would get the game if it were on disk >_<

        • landlock

          What about Yakuza 4 I believe that was released on disc, guess the rule doesn’t apply to everyone.

          • Ixbran

            yea, my theory is that the developers for Yakuza paid extra or something. Because WO3 released on disk for the PS3 everywhere else accept America, so we know its not Koei’s doing, or else it would have been released digitally on PS3 everywhere outside of japan, not just america.

          • landlock

            It was the same with One Piece: Pirate Warriors and the upcoming Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn as well so that sounds about right.

        • shadowind

          I swear SCEA is run by wankers when it comes to their policies on JP games.

        • DaiRaiOh

          It makes perfect sense to me. Dubbing the game would cost a ton of money simply because of how large the cast is. As far as the no disk thing is concerned, it’s generally only for niche games and makes sense as it reduces production costs enough to really minimize chances of profits going into the red which as a fan, you should be happy they’re doing as that’s the sort of thing that helps guarantee that you get more games in the future

  • Ixbran

    So much Excitement! <3

  • Loli Summoner

    If this game came out earlier…like before DW8XL(revamped effects and new ex’s and musou) and SW4, I would be excited about this, but sadly I’m not.
    I really don’t wanna go back and use the old models/skills of the DW and SW characters. And lets say if I do get this, it will properly only be so I can play as sterk!

  • Göran Isacson

    Hold up, Sophitia too? How come Namco suddenly joined the fray?

    • Ixbran

      I don’t think it was ever explained how or why, just that for some reason Koei managed to get permission from Namco to include her.

      • I’m more surprised that Sterk from the Atlelier Series is a playable character.

        I will be using him

        • MrTyrant

          Not so surprise knowing that Tecmo Koei owns Atelier franchine now. Sterk was a popular character and it seems they wanted a warrior from Atelier as a guess.

  • Audie Bakerson

    They did mention they had multiple announcements coming in May for the west when confirming New Rorona, so I guess this will be one of those.

  • Aries_Atkasha

    So many foxgirls (Kyuubi, Da-Ji, Tamamo)…
    I can’t wait!

    • fairysun

      So, what the fox says?

  • Slayven19

    Day 1

  • Rawindra

    We need Jump, Kamen Rider, Sega & Dengeki characters in Complete Edition after Battride War II release: Kamen Rider (Gaim, Wizard (first victim), W/Joker, Decade), Jump (Gintoki Sakata (first victim, & one of two Jumps brought a gag moments), Monkey D.

    • Joseph Santee

      Kenshiro would be OP. No one would play as anyone else. ATATATATATAWATAAAAAAAAA!

  • I still haven’t played much of my Wii U copy so I”ll pass for a while.

  • Mir Teiwaz

    If they do the same as they are with DW8XLCE and put it on PC, I’ll be a super happy reyvateil.

  • DivinePhoenix69

    I’ll definately be getting this for the PS4 since i never got the chance to play the original WO3:U.

  • Kornelious

    Sweet! I was hoping this game would be localized, (Personally Sterk sold the game for me immediately :P) Lets hope it gets a PS4 release So i can put it next to my Dynasty Warriors 8 Complete :D (And a Vita version as well if it has cross-save)

  • Marcus

    PS4 for sure, but that’s if that version gets localized.

  • Vash bane

    ehh just when I gave up on this game this happens XD

  • monkey king

    Great, now everyone get DW8 on PC so they release this one on pc as well.

  • DoctorButler

    Sophitia? Really? How’d they get her?

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Unlike DW and SW, I read that Warriors Orochi DOES have a continuing story but you what? I’m gonna get this one but I’ll wait to see which format is most sufficient or at least wait out a bit ‘cus I don’t think I should get a Wii U and PS4 this year.

  • MikelAL93

    If they have a physical copy for the US this time around, I may consider getting a second copy for PS3.

  • Learii

    yes yes just what I waiting for

  • Guest

    Complete Edition needs: Hayate (from DOA), Sanzo, Jump characters (Gintoki (first victim & one of two Jumps who brought gags), Kenshiro, Luffy, Zolo/Zoro, Sanji, Chopper, Kenshin, Oga+Beelzebub IV (one of two Jumps who brought gags)), Kamen Riders (Gaim, Wizard (first victim), Joker, Decade), Dengeki characters (Shizuo, Kirito, Asuna), Sega characters (Sonic, Toma, Sakura Shinguji), Namco (Sophitia’s children, Yuri Lowell), a Gundam (male or/& female ver., only weapons are changed depends on the character use while riding the Mobile Suit)

  • Yan Zhao

    Looks like that Twitter hint from the japanese devs wasnt lying, “Maybe summer 2014” is right!

  • Skode

    Just realised all of my DLC is on the Xbox 360 version and there is zero chance of this coming out on that platform but im more than willing to start again from scratch on the PS3 should it be released on that over here in the UK.

    None of the DLC was essential anyways but gonna be awesome playing as some of these new characters for the first time (and bewildering after so long playing as the older characters and their semi cloned movesets too)

  • Bell

    I’m getting this game solely for Sterk. I’ve had so many fantasies about him taking on an entire army, and now I’ll get to live them out!

  • three sworn brothers

    please release it overseas

  • three sworn brothers

    please release it in west for pc
