A PS4 version launched in June 2014, and a Switch version launched last November. In the West, the game launched in September 2014 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and PS Vita. Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate added characters from the Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, Soul Calibur, and Atelier series, among others, for a total of more than 142 playable characters.

Update: The game will also get a European release this year. KOEI Tecmo Europe began streaming the teaser video on Tuesday.
