With the massive gaming event behemoth known as E3 coming up next week, it’s no wonder we will start to see rumours, early announcements and with this juicy tidbit an early leak. Hyrule Warriors: All Stars will be coming to a Nintendo 3DS near you most likely this year.
The game isn’t just a simple port of the Wii U version either (which would be impossible due to the sheer hardware difference of the two machines). The game, known as “All Stars” is in reference to the game having the entire cast of Hyrule Warriors (including the DLC characters) along with even more new ones added. Confirmed so far are the addition of Tetra and King of Red Lions from Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. It is most likely more will be revealed later in the year (or even at E3!).
The game also features gameplay additions quite like those from the Samurai Warriors Chronicles series, where you can use the touch screen to instantaneously switch between characters on the battlefield, allowing for a much more hectic and hardcore slashing experience.
It also seems quite like most portable editions of KOEI Tecmo games, that it will be ripping cut-scenes directly from the Wii U iteration of the game. Along with other things such as the battlefield shown being Hyrule Field (the first battle in the Wii U game). There has also been confirmation on connectivity between the 3DS version of the game and the Wii U version of the game, so far showcasing that you can connect your 3DS game to the Wii U version to transfer over any / all the new characters featured in the All Stars version. It remains to be seen if these characters will be appearing as DLC or their own Pack’s on the Wii U eShop.
Check out the trailer attached and make up your own minds, but it is looking to be a solid version of an extremely good Warriors game, just on the go! Be sure to keep an eye out for more information during Nintendo’s Digital Event next week at E3!

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 has finally been announced for Western release! With it coming to both Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita, you’ll finally be able to enjoy an exclusive Samurai hack ‘n’ slash mayhem built specifically for handheld consoles!
The game will be coming digitally to both platforms on June 24th for Europe. An American release date will be announced next week, so keep a look out for it (expect the same week or so for release window).

We have a bevy of new information for you today in regards to the upcoming release of Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3! Along with the screenshots we uploaded just moments ago, new features have been confirmed along with a lot more!
~The entire Story revolves around What-If scenarios, such as what if Takeda Shingen succeeded at Joraku, or if Imagawa Yoshimoto succeeded at Okehazamanotatakai? The story unfolds with these events happening.
~Also depending on your relationship with officers and rulers, these What-If scenarios will change (for better or worse).
~The switching of characters feature from the original Chronicles game makes a return, with battles being crucial for you to switch between numerous officers on the battlefield.
~It is possible to stun enemy officers that are of a lower level than you a lot easier. Quite like the three officer types in Dynasty Warriors 8, lower grade officers can be defeated easier and stunned much more easily.
~”Renbukan Mode” makes a return (first features in Chronicle 2nd), which is quite like a “horde” mode where you face off against wave after wave of soldiers. The faster you defeat each wave the higher your score reaches.
~Godspeed Actions and Secret Musou attacks will be making their way from Samurai Warriors 4.
~A new “Warfare Skills” addition has been made, where you can consume a certain amount of your “Skills Gauge” to perform special actions around the battlefield.
We’ll be sure to report more information as it appears. This is certainly looking like one hell of a portable exclusive title, and we really do hope it see’s a Western release, only if because the first Chronicles game was very over-looked and an extremely fun game on the 3DS.
What are your thoughts of the game so far? Would you like to play this on your 3DS/Vita? Let us know!
In the Famitsu leak earlier this week it was revealed that Sengoku Musou Chronicle 3 (Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3) was in development by KOEI-Tecmo for both the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita.
Officially announced now through Famitsu, Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 will be making it’s mark on both handhelds later in 2014. The game offers numerous features, such as new “Hyper Attacks” and “Rage Attacks” that were introduced in Samurai Warriors 4.
They have also said it will offer over 50 warlords (with a vague hint of at least one new character) from Samurai Warriors 4 and no doubt be using it’s gameplay engine.
Other features include increased Edit Slots for your customisable characters. There has also been a reveal on the take on the story, which is a fictional twist on it’s usual history focused take. Where you will be fighting in battles with a “what if” spin on it all.
New modes and actions have also been boasted to be included, but no elaboration on that yet.
What do you think of this reveal? Do you hope it would make it to the West even though the second didn’t? Would you get it for Nintendo’s 3DS or Playstation’s Vita? Let us know!
