Wrestle With WWE All Stars on 3DS in November

Posted by James Newton

Bulging muscles in 3D

THQ's WWE All Stars on Wii was a decent attempt at an arcade take on sports entertainment, but despite the game launching on practically every format — even PS2 got a look-in — there was no portable port for Nintendo formats. That'll change later this year though, as THQ has announced WWE All Stars for 3DS.

While you might expect a cut-down version for the handheld, judging from the game's official fact sheet it contains all the characters from its HD cousins, with 43 characters in total: in fact, the PS3 and 360 versions ship with 32 characters on the disc with a further 12 available to download, which means the 3DS version gets downloadable content for free.

It'll also get a pair of exclusive modes too: survival challenge Gauntlet, where your health is regenerated by performing flashy moves, and Score Scramble, where the superstar with the highest score wins.

The game also includes a Create-a-Superstar mode but makes no mention of multiplayer components, so don't get your hopes up for online multiplayer just yet.

WWE All Stars on 3DS sees release in late November.

This is awesome news, though I haven't played the console versions.
Please give us online multiplayer and I'll buy this day 1!



Supremeist said:

Hahaha. No thanks, I'm not 10 anymore. But I'm also glad to say I have never even given WWE a chance in my life. It's just pathetic. Lol



SilverBaretta said:

Huh. May be worth a look, that is if they're going through the trouble of making it as nice as the HD games.



Lan said:

Boo! I hate THQ and I hate "pro" wrestling. A match made in hell.



ecco6t9 said:

This one is strongly on my maybe pile, I only fear that there will be no one else around to play it.



SuperSpank said:

I played WWE 2010 on the DS, good game, but i played around with the editor more, than playing the actual game itself.



sykotek said:

You know what I'd like, No Mercy or WrestleMania 2000, but with an updated roster or a legends roster, remastered in HD or 3D. Flesh out create a character...I'd likely pay good money for that.



Supremeist said:

Yep, I'll stick with DoA: Dimensions and SSFIV. But hey, alot of kids around the age group of 7-10 really like WWE (Why, I don't know) and this will probably suit there needs. The game itself can't be that bad. But I just don't know what to expect from it.



Splat said:

There are alot of games I don't like or care about but I don't feel the need to bash them or their fans but maybe that's just me.



Xkhaoz said:

Has everything and more except multiplayer. Too bad I hate wrestling.



y2josh said:

Looks cool, but I think I'll wait for the console version to go down in price.

@16 Amen to that, No Mercy and Wrestlemania 2000 rocked. As did the WCW/NWO games before them.
