Nintendo Announces Hyrule Warriors

Dec 18, 2013

In the latest Nintendo Direct, Nintendo totally blind-sided us with an unexpected announcement. They have teamed up with Tecmo-Koei, the developers of the hugely popular Dynasty Warriors series to offer fans of both the Warriors series and Zelda series alike something interesting to look forward to.

Hyrule Warriors is that "something interesting". If you have never played a Dynasty Warriors game, here's the basics behind it. You choose a warrior to play as and then set out battling through massive scale fights, eventually facing off against some type of boss figure near the end. It's fairly simple hack 'n slash gameplay but it's fast paced and a lot of fun.

So now take that premise and apply it to Hyrule and throw in Link (And presumably more) into large scale battles against famous foes and you'll have an idea of what Hyrule Warriors is all about. The reveal trailer shows familiar items such as bombs, a fire rod and of course Links spinning attack. Check out the trailer below for yourself.

This is not the first time there's been such a collaboration, a couple years ago Dynasty Warriors was joined with the world of Gundam, you can check out our review of Dynasty Warriors Gundam right here.

The trailer also says that "Hyrule Warriors" is just a working title for now, so it could change before the games eventual release date. Which is sometime in 2014. Nintendo was also quick to note that this is not the new Zelda adventure game that they are working on. A true Zelda for Wii U will be shown at a later date -- probably E3. The Zelda franchise has been getting some love from Nintendo lately, who just released the fantastic The Legend Of Zelda: A link Between Worlds. And don't miss Kidzworld's rankings of the Top 5: Zelda Games!

Hyrule Warriors is coming exclusively for the Nintendo Wii U.

Athena would be the one to bring the young boy into real life as a gift to her daughter. His eyes are dark, dark grey that often are filled with thunder and lightning. His hair is dirty blonde, with a few dyed purple streaks. He often is attacked by mystical monsters, but his true passion is Duel Monsters, his advanced and logical approach earning him many a win. He prefers to have a plethora of options that allow him to always keep his opponent on their toes. He prefers to journey along side his father to tournaments, but he spends a few months each year at Camp Half-Blood to learn more about his grandmother and her family.

Ooh, this would be a girl who kind of has some human traits but she's mostly gem. Stevidot's outfit would be a star tank top and denim shorts. The hair would be brown with green tips and Stevidot would be way more flexible. She would be pretty kind but has a flair for amazing comebacks. Of course. She would have the ability to summon a Metal Spiked Shield to use for both attacks by impaling and defense because it's a shield. Finally, she'd be amazing at technology, gem history, and Earth traditions. Yami from Yu-gi-oh and Annabeth from Percy Jackson ​(Yamibeth)
