Yes, Tecmo Koei Is Porting Samurai Warriors 3 To PS3

By Spencer . November 1, 2010 . 11:19pm

imageEarly scans from Famitsu have the scoop on Samurai Warriors 3Z, a PlayStation 3 version of Samurai Warriors 3, which was originally announced as a Wii exclusive.


Samurai Warriors 3Z has HD graphics and three new new characters to use: Aya Gozen, Fukushima Masanori, and Gracia. Tecmo Koei made a total of ten new scenarios for musou mode. Seven come from characters who didn’t have a scenario in the Wii version plus three for the newcomers.


Since it wasn’t shown in the Famitsu article it is believed that the Mystery of Murasame Castle mode, a feature based on an old Nintendo game, will not be part of the PlayStation 3 port. Tecmo Koei is adding new modes, one of which has a second rare weapon to procure.


Samurai Warriors 3Z heads to stores in Japan on January 27, 2011.

    can’t say I didn’t see that coming

  • nyoron

    Cool, I’m glad I waited. Though I have a feeling this will follow the footsteps of Orochi Z, so I guess I’ll have to import.

  • WonderSteve

    Thank god I waited.

    I’be been waiting forever

  • brooklyngamer86

    My addiction to SW/DW will get worst when this game comes out.

    • Testsubject909

      Wait till Dynasty Warriors 7 comes out…And then… Every Warriors fans dream. Orochi Warriors 3… and Empires. [Edit: Oh, at least it’s what i’m hoping to see]

  • Third Party Wii exclusives are starting to bite the dust like third party Xbox exclusives.

    I cant wait to see comparison images of the game.

      SW3 had pretty crap graphics by Wii standards so this needs to be more than just the same graphics in HD to look like it belongs in the PS3 library.

  • And there goes the rest of the Musou fanbase, heading straight for the PS3.

    With stuff like this happening, you can’t blame (mainly Japanese) people not rushing out to get the latest Wii release, e.g. Tales of Graces.

  • RAVENKam

    Good to hear, although I was going to get this for the Wii I plan on buying in the new year. HD though…

  • Kunio_kun

    Bring back Goemon, dammit!!!

    • Kunio_kun

      At least we have Kunoichi…

    • Kunio_kun

      …And Miyamoto Musashi!!!

  • just when I was raging at the lack of playable characters in Sengoku Basara 3

  • neo_firenze

    Wow, less than 3 hours after I got home from Target (buy 2 get 1 free sale) with Wii Samurai Warriors 3.

    Well, good thing I haven’t opened it yet. I’ll probably just stick with Fist of the North Star until the PS3 SW3 port.

  • vadde939

    Well that didn’t take long. It seems like all the 3rd party wii exclusives are getting ported these days. I guess you can’t blame people for being so hesitant about buying third party Wii games. The 3rd party situation on Wii seems to be getting worse and worse. I think a new home console is the only way for Nintendo to fix this now.

    • Wouldnt it take at least two years for them to get a system out? 2011 could be bleack in terms of games, if Last Story, Xenoblade, and other titles are not brought out globally next year…Though I guess a system could come out fast if Nintendo takes the conservative route with the Wii successor having just beefed up graphical capabilities and retaining all Wii controls.

      • Joanna

        As bad as this sounds, I hope the lack of 3rd party support does result in us getting XenoBlade, Last Story and Another Code R. All three games would make my 2011 year on Wii. I’m sure others think that’s not enough, but with my backlog, three is a good number. Plus I still have a few games I need to pick up. xD

      • vadde939

        Nintendo have always been secretive about what they’re doing. I’d be suprised if we don’t hear something about their next home console next year but I’m not expecting a release until 2012 so yeah if we don’t get Xenoblade and The Last Story next year then 2011 could be worrying for Wii owners. Skyward Sword as the only port-proof major Wii release next year would be pretty depressing.
