Nioh's William joins the cast of Musou Stars


We need a Nioh to save us

The last time I wrote about Musou Stars (an anniversary musou drawing from many Koei Tecmo properties), community member Enou wondered if we’d see Nioh‘s William Adams added to the roster. I figured they’d be correct, but wasn’t sure if William would be lucky enough to be part of the initial character line-up and instead relegated to DLC. But I’m glad to be wrong in this case.

Announced on a Nioh live-stream (and caught by Gematsu), Koei Tecmo announced William as the final character. Here’s the full Musou Stars line-up:

  • Tamaki (Original character)
  • Shiki (Original character)
  • Setsuna (Original character)
  • Zhao Yun –Dynasty Warriors
  • Wang Yuanji –Dynasty Warriors
  • Ouka –Toukiden
  • Sophie –Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
  • Yukimura Sanada –Samurai Warriors
  • Ryu Hayabusa –Ninja Gaiden
  • Hajime Arima –Harukanaru Toki no Naka de
  • Kasumi –Dead or Alive
  • Millenia –Deception
  • Plachta –Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
  • Mitsunari Ishida –Samurai Warriors
  • Horo –Toukiden
  • Darius –Harukanaru Toki no Naka de
  • Opoona –Opoona
  • Marie Rose –Dead or Alive
  • Honoka –Dead or Alive
  • Rio –Rio
  • Zhou Cang –Dynasty Warriors
  • Lu Bu –Dynasty Warriors
  • Naotora Ii –Samurai Warriors

Musou Stars releases in Japan March 30th for PlayStation 4 and Vita. Fingers crossed for a Western release sooner rather than later.
