Warriors Orochi 3 -- Tecmo Koei's hack n' slash equivalent to Super Smash Bros. -- has been confirmed for release in Europe and North America. UK community manager Chin Soon Sun made the announcement via Twitter, and said that more details will arrive later. 

The upcoming game will mash Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors together, but will also include playable characters from Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, Bladestorm, Zill O'll, and Warriors: Legends of Troy. It'll be coming to both Xbox 360 and PS3. 

Game looks huge, and I am very excited for it. Fun times!
