Warriors Orochi 4 did away with the series' guest characters, but now they're coming back for Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate. How convenient.

Revealed in a new gameplay trailer, Ryu Hayabusa of Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive fame, is bringing his magically-infused swordplay to the upcoming re-release. He looks just about as deadly as ever, and he's joining previously confirmed guest character Joan of Arc.

Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is due to hit PlayStation 4 in February next year. Will you be adding Ryu to your team? Blast through hundreds of ugly Orochi grunts in the comments section below.
