“Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate” adds “Ninja Gaiden” hero Ryu Hayabusa to the roster
On Tuesday, developer Omega Force and publisher Koei Tecmo announced that Ryu Hayabusa from the Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive series will be a playable character in Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate. The Ultimate expansion will be available both as a stand-alone product and as an add-on to the original Warriors Orochi 4.
Here is the official breakdown of the character and the new “Ultmate” expansion:
From his legendary Ninja Gaiden quests to his lightning-fast fists and kicks in the Dead or Alive franchise, Ryu Hayabusa is undoubtedly a true Koei Tecmo icon. That’s why the producers of Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate are proud to announce Hayabusa’s inclusion in our upcoming game, as he returns to the Warriors Orochi series after a five-year hiatus to join over 170 playable characters, including others like Joan of Arc and the goddess Gaia, in a one-versus-1,000 over-the-top action experience.
The latest in Koei Tecmo’s killer crossover series features characters from Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, and the gods of ancient history (including Zeus and Ares) joining together in an all-out fight against swarms of enemies as they seek the truth of why they were reunited to battle in this new mysterious world. All new storylines (and even a new ending) will be explored in Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate as gamers finally uncover why Zeus formed his anti-Odin coalition and the true purpose of Loki. Throughout the new narrative and side stories, gamers will discover a host of fantastical new magic abilities and Sacred Treasures to light up every level as history’s greatest warriors take on swarm after swarm of fearless enemies.
Will the addition of Ryu Hayabusa help sway the balance of power in the heroes’ direction?
Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is scheduled to release in Japan this December for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, with a Japanese PC release to follow in February 2020. The western regions can expect the game to arrive on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in February 2020. It will be available as both a standalone game and an expansion for existing Warriors Orochi 4 owners.
