Game publisher THQ today confirmed that the arcade-style WWE All Stars will be released for the Nintendo 3DS on November 22 in North America, same day as WWE 12’s release. The 3DS version of the game will feature console versions’ DLC characters and two exclusive modes. WWE All Stars debuted its exaggerated brand of wrestling action on a variety of platforms in March, but 3DS owners will be rewarded somewhat for their patience. In addition to the game’s 3D visuals, WWE All Stars on the 3DS will include two exclusive new modes and 13 playable characters that were previously offered as downloadable add-ons for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of All Stars.
In contrast to the simulation-based WWE SmackDown vs. Raw series, WWE All Stars features arcade-style gameplay along with over-the-top animation and wrestlers bearing a more exaggerated look. The game is a combination of a fighting game and a wrestling game, with combos playing a major factor in gameplay, both on the ground and mid-air. Characters will perform exaggerated moves, such as John Cena’s Attitude Adjustment, in which he dives high into the air, Triple H’s Pedigree with shock waves running across the ring and Bret Hart’s Sharpshooter with a slow motion smile and finger pointed towards the crowd for a few seconds, prior to the same. The game features present WWE wrestlers such as Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, Triple H, The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, Big Show, John Morrison and John Cena and past (WWE/WWF) wrestlers such as The Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Jake the Snake and the "Macho Man" Randy Savage, as well as commentary from Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler.
It also features a Path Of Champions mode where players choose a WWE Legend or Superstar to either become the WWE Champion (Randy Orton’s Path), the World Heavyweight Champion (Undertaker’s Path) or the WWE Tag Team Champions (D-Generation-X’s Path)The game also has options for using alternate attires for the WWE superstars from the past and present.
