The Japanese release date for the Playstation 3 and Vita versions of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate has been released. Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is an enhanced version of Warriors Orochi 3 Special, which is the Japan-exclusive PSP version of Warriors Orochi 3.

Tecmo Koei and Omega Force’s historical fiction-based, hack and slash brawler is slated to release September 26th.

There are also a number of new screenshots for the game. So take a look at them:

For those who may not know, the Warriors Orochi games are a cross-over series between Omega Force’s Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors games.

This particular version is heavy on content; it contains tons of side-stories including the Gojitsudan and Zenjitsudan compilations that detail events before and after the game. Additionally, Warriors Orochi 3 has over 140 playable characters — all of which are illustrated by artist Akihiro Yamada.

In Japan, the physical versions for the Playstation 3 and Vita versions will cost Y 6,615 (about $66) and Y6,090 ($61) respectively. When purchasing digitally, they will be Y5,800 ($58) on the PS3, and &5,400 ($54) on Vita. There has not been any word about localization as of yet, but we may hear about it from Tecmo Koei in due time. Stay tuned for more.
