I’m gonna be looking at this for an hour...


No problem, I looked at it quite a while too to see everyone in there :mrgreen:

Hmm this sounds a bit disappointing :/

Actually I don't think Achilles will even be in the game, they said 'no guest characters this time around' If Achilles was from another game originally, (Troy?) then he would be out, along with Joan, Momiji, Rachel, Ayane, Hayubasa, Sophitia, Nemea, and a few others. Zeus is the main enemy which they haven't shown yet, only a silhouette, and I think 4 other new Greek characters as well. I'm actually wondering if they are gonna release tons of add on 'guest' characters later on as paid DLC...

I presumed that all characters from a Warriors game (so not just Dynasty and Samurai but also Warriors: Legends of Troy) were considered core characters and it was people from series' like Dead or Alive who were guests! I'm happy to just see it pulled back to focus on the Asian characters though!

It looks like Koei has posted portraits of the entire roster here: http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/orochi3/story_character.html#all

I'm not seeing any major omissions yet, from quick glance, outside of the aforementioned DW9/SoS newcomers.

If it's true that there won't be guests this time around, that bums me out. I enjoyed playing with the new DOA characters in Warriors All-Stars like Marie Rose and was hoping she'd come back. And what about William from Nioh?! He's been quite popular both with gamers and Koei themselves as of late.

William! Thank you Jia Nanfeng, I had completely forgotten his name so I was about to call him "Nioh man" and wonder why they left him out. Nioh has been their biggest game in a while and you'd think they would continue to capitalize on that by including him in this crossover franchise. This company confuses me sometimes.

Thanks for this, I have a much easier time looking at that page than the picture with everyone in it :mrgreen:
I didn't have the Ultimate version of 3, so am looking forward to playing as some of the characters that will be new to me like Kyubi, but yeah some guest characters would be nice, but then again if there's 170 characters as it is, they probably are gonna leave out many of them from actual story scenes. Like I said, I didn't play DW9, but hopefully they can add stuff like the cutscenes or short little scenes from 9 with characters that aren't used as much to be able to see a bit more from them.

I just want lots of Sun Ce. WO1 is still my favourite game because Sun Ce was the main character in so many stages! :lol:

I'd kill for Zhong Hui to actually get a showing in these games that's more than two jokes stages.

"O heaven, since thou DaolunofShiji, why did thou also create Sun Fin?" :(

You'll see, one day I'll get a Chen Tai based game that has a lot of Zhong Hui, then we'll see whose lau- Ah who am I kidding.
