After tossing together several successful all-star Dynasty Warriors-type games based on other people’s properties like Dragon Quest Heroes and Hyrule Warriors, Tecmo Koei gives its own famous characters a shot a killing many things at the same time in Musuo Stars.
The last time Koei Tecmo let their characters out to play in such a fashion was in 2011's Warriors Orochi 3, which expanded the company’s Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors crossover to include characters from its other properties. Since then developer Omega Force has been busy pumping out more official Warriors titles and third-part/licensed titles. Now it’s time to get the band back together.
We’ve got characters from Ninja Gaiden, Toukiden, Atelier Sophie, Dead or Alive and more, all looking exactly as they do in their respective titles, only doing different things, and that’s just fine. Expect plenty more where those came from, as it is still early days.
Musuo Stars is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan next year. Then I’m sure we’ll get it, because Koei Tecmo loves the West pretty hard.
