Here’s the full rundown, via Koei Tecmo:

This title, developed in continuous celebration of the franchise’s 10 year anniversary, aims to bring a brand new version of the Samurai Warriors universe to western Nintendo 3DS™ players for the first time since the IP launched in 2011, as well as offer PlayStation Vita fans the opportunity to delve deeper into the rich and intricate storylines of Sengoku era Japan.

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 incorporates the best elements ever developed for Samurai Warriors, including the detailed customization mode and battle system of Samurai Warriors 4 and the Challenge Mode, which tests players’ speed and efficiency as they fight against the clock and thousands of enemies simultaneously!

The story mode, which can be played controlling either a uniquely customised character or one of the much loved, history- inspired, Samurai, can unfold in multiple ways offering numerous resolutions to large scale battles and leading to multiple endings affected by the players’ choices, actions, and affiliations.

Exclusively created to offer exhilarating action on the go, Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will fully utilise the Nintendo 3DS StreetPass and SpotPass as well as the PlayStation Vita touch screen.
