Koei Tecmo released a new trailer focusing on the newest playable character announced for the upcoming Musou game Warriors Orochi 4: Ultimate.
The character is Yang Jian, coming straight from Chinese literature, and his moves are worthy of that heritage.
You can watch him in action below.
If you’re unfamiliar with the character (and you likely are), here’s an official intro directly from the press release.
“Known as the “Genius Taoist Who Delivers Victory,” Jian descended from his mystic land to help control the turmoil in the new world. He is always calm and collected, and possesses great intuition.
He goes to war with a deadly tri-point double-edged glaive, and always has his divine canine companion Xiaotian fighting by his side.
A Taoist mystic, Jian is thought to be a genius obsessed with perfection, but in truth, he is simply an extremely hard-working person and exactly the type of warrior who can help bring Odin’s army to its knees.”
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.
