Lana will be playable in Hyrule Warriors, and will be bringing her witch-powers to wow Link and Zelda. Her main gimmick is creating magical barriers (rectangles of sorts) that can push enemies back as well as explode for ext...

Zelda gets a chance to shine in this Hyrule Warriors featurette

When I posted videos featuring Link last week in Hyrule Warriors, everyone responded -- "great, but where's Impa and Zelda!" Well, we've already seen the former, but now Zelda's moves are on display for all to see in this ne...

You've seen Link wreck shop with his sword in Hyrule Warriors, now you can watch him destroy entire armies with the Fire Rod. It functions as a flame thrower, projectile launcher, and even has an ultimate move that...

Hyrule Warriors may be reskinned Dynasty Warriors, but it's pretty

It is exactly Dynasty Warriors, but pretty enough that I almost want to play it regardless. And I'm not even a huge Zelda fan. Also, this is going to make so much money.

Hyrule Warriors is more Warriors than Hyrule photo
Hyrule Warriors is more Warriors than Hyrule
by Dale North

You knew that upcoming Wii U title Hyrule Warriors would be a blend of Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors and Nintendo's Legend of Zelda. But I'm here to tell you that the gameplay is much more like Dynasty Warriors than I thought it would be. Not that that's a bad thing.

I'm still surprised Hyrule Warriors exists

I mean, who would have thought we'd get a sequel to cult classic The Warriors this late, and as a Nintendo cross over, no less? What's next, How Hyrule? Fast Times at Ridgemont Hyrule? No, but seriously, Dynasty Warriors: The...
