Not for Western eyes, it would seem

Koei Tecmo has revealed that the Western release of the 3DS title Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 will not come with the unique Zelda-themed content that launched alongside the Japanese edition.

When the game was released in Japan, Link and Zelda outfits - lifted from the Wii U brawler Hyrule Warriors - could be unlocked in the by playing a special demo.

Sadly, Siliconera has asked the publisher about the chances of these costumes being in the Western edition of the game and has been told that they are Japan-exclusive.

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 launches in North America on June 30th, with the European release happening a few days sooner on June 24th. Will this news impact your purchasing decision? Let us know by posting a comment.
