The official website for Koei Tecmo Games and its Omega Force subsidiary's Musou Stars video game announced on November 4 that the crossover game will feature Plachta (voiced by Yuka Iguchi) from the Atelier game series. The website already revealed that the game will feature Atelier's Sophie.
Other confirmed characters include: Zhao Yun from Dynasty Warriors, Kasumi from Dead or Alive, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, Ōka from Toukiden: The Age of Demons, Millennia from Kagero: Deception II, and Sanada Yukimura from Samurai Warriors.
The game is a crossover between Koei Tecmo Games' various titles, including Omega Force's Dynasty Warriors and Toukiden, Team Ninja's Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive, and Gust's Atelier series. The game features the hack-and-slash gameplay of the Musou (Warriors) series, seen in such games as Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors.
Koei Tecmo Games announced the game and began streaming a promotional video in September. The game is slated for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2017.
The latest game in the Musou series is Berserk Musou, which shipped in Japan on October 27. The game features characters and story from Kentarou Miura's Berserk manga. The Musou series has had multiple spinoffs featuring other properties, including The Heroic Legend of Arslan, The Legend of Zelda, One Piece, and Fist of the North Star.
