World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has gone 3D. THQ has unleashed WWE All Stars for Nintendo 3DS. The new game comes packed with a roster of WWE Legends and prominent current-day WWE Superstars, including 13 WWE playable characters offered as downloadable content for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles earlier this year. Cory Ledesma lays the smackdown on the jump to the third dimension in the video interview below.
WWE All Stars for Nintendo 3DS is the debut title from THQ San Diego. The game bridges generations of WWE fans and casual followers with a fun, intuitive and approachable 3D gameplay experience inside the handheld virtual ring. Delivering one of the greatest rosters ever assembled in a WWE videogame, WWE All Stars includes current-day WWE Superstars and legendary talent such as John Cena, The Rock, Andre the Giant, Big Show, Triple H, Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, The Miz, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Rey Mysterio and the iconic “Macho Man” Randy Savage. In addition, WWE All Stars for Nintendo 3DS will offer players 13 WWE Superstars previously offered as downloadable content for its console counterparts, including “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, the Road Warriors, R-Truth and Chris Jericho. Each star will boast a distinctive and highly stylized appearance, adding to the overall spectacle, atmosphere and attitude.
With responsive, arcade-style controls, each WWE Legend and WWE Superstar has a variety of grapples, attacks, combos, finishing and signature manuevers to create the ultimate competitive and fast-paced 3D gaming experience that’s easy to pick up and play but with considerable depth for more advanced players. In addition, offering four classes of competitor – Acrobat, Big Man, Brawler and Grappler – WWE All Stars provides players with WWE Legends and WWE Superstars who have distinct advantages and techniques, including specific combinations and unique abilities.
The game offers players two exclusive gameplay experiences with Gauntlet and Score Scramble Modes. In Gauntlet Mode, players will battle every WWE Superstar and WWE Legend on the roster to test their limits and achieve the ultimate in bragging rights. In Score Scramble Mode, players will be challenged to either reach a specific point total or to finish a timed match with the highest point total. WithWWE All Stars, the greatest matchups in WWE history haven’t happened yet – until now, thanks to Fantasy Warfare Mode. Players will pick a side – WWE Legends or WWE Superstars – and compete in a series of fantasy matches that pit WWE Superstars with similar personal or in-ring attributes against one another to determine the greatest of all time. Informative and engaging video packages produced by WWE set up each of the pairings and match objectives.
