Today Koei Tecmo revealed new information about its upcoming Musou game Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate, which will bring new characters and features on top of the original experience.
The new character will be named Yousen in Japanese, and he’ll likely be adapted with the west with his Chinese name Yang Jian, following the procedure usually adopted for Musou games.
This particular incarnation of the charater comes from the Chinese literary masterpiece Journey to the West by Wu Cheng’en, and is a representation of the local deity Erlang Shen, who has a third truth-seeing eye on his forehead.
You can see his 3D model directly from the official Twitter account below.
On top of this, we get to take a preliminary look at the brand new Infinity mode introduced by producer Tomohiko Sho.
In this mode there are various towers themed after zodiac signs. By clearing trials on each floor you can earn material, experience points, and increase the number of your friends. As you clear each tower the specific story of this mode progresses.

Incidentally, the other returning characters added with Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate are Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, Achilles from Warriors: Legend of Troy, and Joan of Arc from Bladestorm.
Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate will release in the west in February 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Japan will get the game earlier in December, but only for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
