Buy it again and again and…
Do you think that you’ve had enough of Warriors Orochi 3? No. According to a new listing on the Australian Classification Ratings Board, publisher Koei Tecmo is preparing to rerelease the rerelease of the original release one more time, in the form of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition.
Originally arriving on PS3, PSP, Wii-U, and Xbox 360 back in 2011, Warriors Orochi 3 was the then-latest entry in the legendary hack ‘n’ slash RPG franchise. While the release received the same typically mixed reviews that meet most entries in the franchise, fans enjoyed its chaotic warfare, period setting, and huge roster of characters, which also included guest stars pulled from Koei’s own Dead or Alive series.
So popular was the title that it was updated and relaunched several years after release, in the form of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate for PS3 and PS Vita, before eventually making its way to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch platforms in 2017. This edition of the game featured new improved visuals and lighting mechanics, stages and side stories, new guest characters (including Sophitia from Bandai Namco’s Soulcalibur), and all previously released DLC content.
So, what is Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition? Well, we’ll have to wait until Koei Tecmo is ready to reveal all to find out. One would naturally assume that it is a port of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate for platforms such as PS5, PC, or Xbox Series, perhaps including 4K visuals, 60 FPS gameplay, and other technical upgrades. No doubt we’ll be hearing from the publisher this summer, if not sooner. So just keep that poleaxe sharpened and stay tuned.
