Koei Tecmo has showcased newly revealed character Yang Jian in more detail today with a bunch of new screenshots. Jian is set to feature prominently in the story of the developer’s upcoming Musou hack-and-slash adventure game, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate.
The game promises to deliver a meaty new main storyline and several side stories that tie into the wider Dynasty Warriors lore as familiar heroes team up with the gods of ancient history to fight the powerful Odin and his army.
As we noted when Jian was revealed earlier this week, his character is based on the 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.
In Warriors Orochi 4, Jian is known as the “Genius Taoist Who Delivers Victory,” Yang Jian is a mysterious new character that’s said to have descended from his mystic land to help control the turmoil in the new world.
You can check out all the new screenshots below:
Yang Jian joins Ryu Hayabusa, Joan of Arc, Achilles, Gaia, and Hades as the latest characters to join the fight, leaving one additional hero yet to be revealed.
Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on Dec. 14 in North America and Feb. 14 2020 in Europe.
