Koei Tecmo has revealed details about new characters in Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. Sophitia Alexandra is seeking to rid the world an evil sword known as the Soul Edge. She is tasked with this quest by the god of fire, Hephaestus. Her daughter winds up kidnapped and instead of destroying the sword, she is made to defend it. She enters the world of Orochi through a rift in space-time on her way back home.
Sterkenburg Cranach served as a knight in the employ of the Kingdom of Arland. He is searching for the former king and seeks to defend his chivalrous side. Like Sophitia, Sterkenburg is drawn into Orochi via a space-time rift. This happens when he is on his way back to Arland and bringing Princess Meruru back to Arls.
Nezha hails from an area known as the Mystic Realm. He is part of the Mystic Army as an officer, but wants to test himself in battle. He utilizes a Fire Spear in combat.
Tamamo is another mystic. She hates humans and loves chaos and negative occurances. She wields a scroll that can cause havoc for humans and has seemingly allied with Da Ji.
Yinglong is another officer in the Mystic Realm, like Nezha. He hails from the ancient era of the Mystic Realm. He was once allied with Fu Xi. He is well respected by others and an inspirational character. He follows through on his principles and takes people at their word.
