WWE All Stars
Legends and Superstars battle for bragging rights.
Earlier this year, THQ delivered a somewhat entertaining beat-em-up called WWE All Stars for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.
This over the top arcade style brawler featured a mix of current WWE Superstars like John Cena and Randy Orton, mixed with a variety of Legends from wrestling's past, including Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior and the iconic "Macho Man" Randy Savage.
The controls were a bit rough, but for the most part, All Stars provided several hours of face smashing fun.
Well, now you can experience all the game's hardest hits on 3DS, as THQ San Diego preps a portable version that'll hit shelves November 22.
Displayed in glasses free 3D, the handheld WWE All Stars appears to retain most if not all of the content from the original title, complete with a roster featuring 40 plus wrestlers (Triple H, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Andre the Giant, Bret "Hit Man" Hart), including 13 grapplers offered as downloadable content on the console side, such as "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, the Road Warriors, R-Truth and Chris Jericho.
Each one of these wrestlers falls into one of four distinct categories (Acrobat, Big Man, Brawler and Grappler), offering players unique fighting styles, strengths and techniques.
On top of that, Create-A-Superstar made the cut, providing an infinite number of heroes and villains to create.
What separates this game from its big brothers, though, are the two exclusive modes. Gauntlet tasks you with defeating every Superstar and Legend, while Score Scramble challenges you to finish a match with either a specific or highest point total.
What remains to be seen, at the moment, is whether WWE All Stars 3DS will have local and/or online multiplayer. We also want to know if the system is capable of displaying four characters onscreen at once without running into performance issues.
So long as THQ addresses these potential concerns, this could be another quality fighter for Nintendo's handheld.
