Nioh’s William joins the cast of Musou Stars

We need a Nioh to save us

The last time I wrote about Musou Stars (an anniversary musou drawing from many Koei Tecmo properties), community member Enou wondered if we’d see Nioh‘s William Adams added to the roster. I figured they’d be correct, but wasn’t sure if William would be lucky enough to be part of the initial character line-up and instead relegated to DLC. But I’m glad to be wrong in this case. 

Announced on a Nioh live-stream (and caught by Gematsu), Koei Tecmo announced William as the final character. Here’s the full Musou Stars line-up: 

  • Tamaki (Original character)
  • Shiki (Original character)
  • Setsuna (Original character)
  • Zhao Yun – Dynasty Warriors
  • Wang Yuanji – Dynasty Warriors
  • Ouka – Toukiden
  • Sophie – Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
  • Yukimura Sanada – Samurai Warriors
  • Ryu Hayabusa – Ninja Gaiden
  • Hajime Arima – Harukanaru Toki no Naka de
  • Kasumi – Dead or Alive
  • Millenia – Deception
  • Plachta – Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
  • Mitsunari Ishida – Samurai Warriors
  • Horo – Toukiden
  • Darius – Harukanaru Toki no Naka de
  • Opoona – Opoona
  • Marie Rose – Dead or Alive
  • Honoka – Dead or Alive
  • Rio – Rio
  • Zhou Cang – Dynasty Warriors
  • Lu Bu – Dynasty Warriors
  • Naotora Ii – Samurai Warriors
  • Nobunyaga Oda – Samurai Cats
  • Laegrinna – Deception
  • Tokitsugu – Toukiden

  • Christophorus – Nights of Azure
  • William Adams from Nioh

Musou Stars releases in Japan March 30th for PlayStation 4 and Vita. Fingers crossed for a Western release sooner rather than later.
