As we mentioned in our review, Warriors All-Stars isn’t like any other Musou-style game out there right now. This Super Smash Bros.-like crossover game features characters from several different franchises; 13 to be exact.
They ranges from beloved series like Ninja Gaiden to the recently released PS4 exclusive Nioh. All of these franchises come from the Musou developer Koei Tecmo.
You’ll find characters in All-Stars from across genres, too, all battling it out together in classic Warriors-style battlefields complete with bases to capture, mobs to destroy, and enemy commanders to eliminate.
With a grand total of 30 playable characters (three of which are the original faction leaders) in All-Stars, it can be pretty overwhelming the amount of franchises that are represented here. Of those 30 total heroes, only about a dozen are available to play as your first time through.
We’ve compiled the following list of all playable characters in Warriors All-Stars, so that you can get a good idea of the entire cast and the respective series they hail from.
There are a total of three factions vying from the throne in the story and all characters have a predetermined alliance, so we will group them by their alliance. This does, of course, present obvious spoilers so you have been warned. Character names in bold are starter heroes you can immediately choose.
