The Three Musketeers: One for All! Coming to North America on Monday

Posted by Corbie Dillard

The unique new WiiWare platformer is almost here!

Well we originally expected The Three Musketeers: One for All! to land on the European WiiWare service first, but it seems that's not going to be the case.

Legendo Entertainment has just put out a press release announcing a July 27th North American release for the game for a price of 900 Wii Points. Of course the game is still also on tap for a July 31st release in European and Australian territories as well.

You can check out the official press release below for more information on the game and we'll have a full review of the game early next week.

Legendo Entertainment today announced a July 27th North American release date for The Three Musketeers: One for All! for WiiWare™. The game will be priced at 900 Wii Points™ and will be available in English, Spanish and French language editions.

Until today the much-loved sword-swinging platform adventure inspired by Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel has only been available on the PC. The Three Musketeers: One for All! has been specially revamped for Wii™ to provide players with more fun and interaction as they launch sword attacks and control the game’s hero with the Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™.

“We are honored to be the first Swedish company ever to publish a console game in North America,” said Legendo Entertainment CEO & Executive Producer Björn Larsson. “We hope that North American Wii owners will enjoy our charming platform adventure and its unique visual style.”

Players control famed musketeer Porthos during a daring mission to save his kidnapped comrades Aramis, Athos and the young D'Artagnan from the clutches of the sinister Count Xavier and his evil lieutenant, the hook-handed Count Orsini. Packed with frenetic combat, heroic leaps and fun puzzles, and featuring three different endings, this is one adventure no aspiring hero will want to miss!

The Three Musketeers: One for All! supports widescreen and 480p and will be released in Europe and Australia on July 31st.

Key Features:

  • Take control of famed member of The Three Musketeers, Porthos and save your comrades in this riveting platforming action romp suited to heroes of all ages!
  • Immerse yourself in a swashbuckling platform adventure, duel countless enemies, solve fun puzzles, and avoid fiendish traps.
  • Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls allow you to interact directly with the game. Swing the Wii Remote to launch blistering sword attacks on your foes, run and leap over rooftops and discover hidden collectables.
  • Explore a multitude of breathtaking levels teeming with challenging bosses and distinctive environments that include lush forests, dark dungeons, towering castles, a haunted Abbey, the historical town of Normandy, and more!

Hmmm...cool i guess, not sure if i want it though XD
EDIT Actually...the platforming and art style is good i should say, but theres only one type of attack you can do from what ive seen and that attack looks bogus, why couldn't there be hack and slash combos lol

The head showing what his face is doing up close on top of the screen reminds me of when Donkey Kong appears on the bottom of the screen in DK Jungle Beat.

Sweeeeeeeeetness. Cannot wait for the review. You should let Chicken review this to make up for Incoming!

@Pixelman:
hahahaha. No matter what happens, at least I know I have your support. :P

And yes, to be honest, I'm slightly reluctant to throw my complete optimism behind this (we've all been burned by WiiWare at some point), but it just looks...so...awesome.

I've been looking forward to this title for some time. I was hoping for it to be released this week, as I go back to work next week and won't have much time to play. I'll be sure to make time for this, though.

@Chicken: I hear you. The combat reminds me of Ninja Gaiden for some reason, and the platforming bits look sweet. I just hope it's not too easy.

This is great news! I've been waiting for this game to come out! I might wait for the review on this one but I'm kind of tempted to just get it on day one! I think it looks pretty cool!:)

Posts like the one from Pikamander2 are quite interesting, aren't there? His opinion is so hugely negative, while many of us (myself included) are intrigued by the look of this game! Not to say that his opinion is inherently "wrong" or something...just commenting on the amusing differences in point of view around here. :D

@Pikamander2 - Somebody got out of the wrong side of bed this morning? This game actually got really good reviews when it was released on the PC a few years ago, so I really doubt that it is any of those things you suggested.

Anyway we'll know soon enough when the Corbinator reviews it :-p

Definitely my kinda' game here. Looks pretty good too, even if the running animation looks odd (but we all put up with Wander in Shadow of the Colossus, so...) and the repeated swing mechanic seems a bit stiff. Love the visual design of the game and what appear to be beautifully done platforming elements. Definitely looking forward to next Monday!

@Pikamander2

Considering how long it took to release, and all the updates we were getting, I really don't think it was "quickly thrown together". Personally, I think the visuals look great.

Only negative thing I will say about the game is that I wish there was more than one swing attack/animation. Based on the video, it looks like there's only one. If that's the only fault, though, I'll be ok.

The Three Musketeers: One for All! I've never heard of this game until today, but man, it looks freaking awesome! The visuals look great, and it looks like the game is injected with quite a bit of humor. I look forward to Monday for this one.

@Ianafire7: What's the point of your disembodied lips? (Sorry, I couldn't resist :D)

Anyway, it's just one of those things that's supposed to give you insight into your character or something. It doesn't happen in all that many games, but it IS an old concept, dating back to at least Wolfenstein 3D.
