Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate details new characters, Saori Hayami’s involvement
Koei Tecmo has sent out an official batch of details for Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate. It covers new characters Hades, Achilles and Ryu Hayabusa in addition to Saori Hayami’s involvement with the game, who will be voice acting and singing the new theme song.
Here’s the full announcement:
Koei Tecmo America and developer Omega Force revealed three new additions to the Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate roster; including Greek god, Hades; the heroic warrior, Achilles; and Koei Tecmo’s iconic ninja, Ryu Hayabusa. They join a cast of over 170 playable characters in the thrilling new entry to the popular ‘1 vs. 1,000’ hack-and-slash series where heroes from Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, and the gods of ancient history band together seeking the truth behind the powerful forces who have transported them to wage war in this mysterious new world.
The first new fighter to join the Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate lineup is Hades. The brother of Zeus and god of the Underworld, Hades is known for his cold demeanor as he rules over the dead; caring little about what happens in the world above until now. He joins his brother Zeus in an anti-Odin coalition as they fight to discover the true purpose of Loki. Joining them in battle is the fearless fighter Achilles. Known as the mightiest warrior of the Greek army and the hero of the Trojan War, Achilles is feared by enemies and allies alike. He fights not just for victory, but for honor and fame. The third character joining the epic clash is not a god, but one of the most beloved ninjas in all of gaming: Ryu Hayabusa. The young member of the Hayabusa ninja clan and heir to the Dragon lineage, the “super ninja” continues his daily fight against evil with his signature Dragon Sword ready to slice and dice anyone who steps in his way – human or god.
In addition to the new characters, Koei Tecmo also announced that popular Japanese voice actress Saori Hayami has signed on to not only add her beloved voice to the game, but she will also sing the Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate theme song. The title track will be available in both Japanese and English when the game launches in North America on February 14, 2020.
