Koei Tecmo is bringing together dozens of characters from their massive stable of games to create the biggest Warriors game ever. Announced this morning, Warriors All-Stars will be available this August and include appearances by Ryu Hayabusa, Kasumi, Zhao Yun, and many more:
Warriors All-Stars features a wide selection of fan-favorite characters from various Koei Tecmo Games franchises. Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, Kasumi from Dead or Alive, William from Nioh, Yukimura Sanada from Samurai Warriors, Zhao Yun from Dynasty Warriors, Horo and Oka from Toukiden, and Sophie Neuenmuller from Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book are among the many rivals who will contend for royalty in Warriors All-Stars.
Warriors All-Stars begins in a mysterious land brought to the brink of destruction when a magical spring, the source of its power, dries up after its king’s passing. Following a legend that calls for the summoning of champions from other realms in times of dire need, the young princess Tamaki performs a ritual that goes horribly wrong when her powers spiral out of control, scattering the heroes across the domain. Emboldened to restore peace to the world, Tamaki must recruit the best and strongest among these visitors to revitalize the spring – and crown the land’s savior as its new ruler.
The publisher’s huge crossover will also include a huge number of retailer-specific pre-order bonuses, and prospective players will be able to choose from a Kasumi-themed costume for Wang Yuanji, a Ryu Hayabusa-themed costume for Yukimura Sanada, an Oka-themed costume for Sophie Neuenmuller, a Millennia-themed costume for Horo, and an Opoona costume for Marie-Rose. Everyone who pre-orders Warriors All-Stars will also receive an instant access to the playable character Opoona.
Warriors All-Stars is currently in development for the PC and PS4, and it’ll be available on August 29.
