Dynasty Warriors

Zant the Usurper King was confirmed for Hyrule Warriors recently, and man does he look wacky. In addition to flailing his arms around as his main method of attack you can also get a peek at the man behind the mask during a f...
In all of the Hyrule Warrior Nintendo Direct coverage we never got around to mentioning the limited edition Europeans will see. Which is that you all will be getting that awesome looking scarf that Japan will receive too...
Cutting grass is an important part of The Legend of Zelda, you know. So, we were happy to hear series producer Eiji Aonuma confirm during tonight's Nintendo Direct that this time-honored tradition would be making a glorious return in Hyrule Warriors. Who needs online multiplayer when you can chop up grass by your lonesome? Hyrule Warriors Direct [Nintendo]
Those flowing red locks rival Amarant, whom I always thought was some sort of chicken man rather than a pasty dude with red dreads, but whatever.  In a nice appeal to nostalgia, Hyrule Warriors also has an Adventur...
In addition to operating as what looks to be one of the most traditional weapons yet in Hyrule Warriors, Lana's Deku Stick power has a bunch of tricks up its sleeve. It can summon giant roots from the ground, shoot projectil...
Sheik's character trailer is out for Hyrule Warriors, and I'm satisfied. With equal amounts harp carnage, ninja moves, and speed, Sheik is a forced to be reckoned with. Out of all of the fighters I've seen so far, Sheik is one of the fastest, if not the fastest in the game. I love that "ninja run," where characters have their arms backward, while destruction is happening all around them.
We've seen nearly every other character in action so far in Hyrule Warriors except for the newly announced Sheik, Darunia, and Ruto, and now it's the latter princess' turn to show her stuff. Like Fi, her moves have a bi...
The most fun bit here is definitely picking up enemies as they flail ineptly. The rest is pure carnage as Link wrecks underlings and even a giant mouthed boss worm with these clobbering gloves and ball and chain.  Much more brute force than Zelda with the wind waker.
Next you're going to tell me someone is remaking Runaway with Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons. Well, that would be less surprising. What's a random movie from 2007? Someone's going to remake Stardust? In the Name of th...
Good lord, Koei Tecmo! You've done it again. Just look at all these Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate assets. What are we supposed to do with all of these? Look at them? Well, okay. It seems we have a melange of glamorous "new gene...
We've already seen [Queen] Zelda with her signature sword in Hyrule Warriors, but now Koei Tecmo is showing off footage of her conducting death and destruction on the battlefield. It looks like an area-of-effect weapon ...
The Hyrule Warriors trailers keep coming, and now the final video for all of the announced characters has rolled in -- Fi. Her acrobatic style fits right in with the Dynasty Warriors series, and it looks like ...
When I was a kid, I loved watching Gundam Wing and the original Mobile Suit Gundam on Cartoon Network. The mecha genre has always been a personal favorite of mine so I tried to capture the same feeling while playing a video g...
Midna is pretty brutal in Hyrule Warriors. PETA won't be happy about her riding wolves. Less happy about tossing one as a projectile. Then there's the 25 cent machine sticky hand coming out her head. It'll be covered in dirt and won't stick to a thing in a day.  Check out trailers for Link, Zelda, Impa, Lana, and Agitha.
So far we've seen footage of Link, Zelda, Impa, and Lana, and now Agitha from Twilight Princess is up. Although everyone else seems to follow the traditional melee and caster roles, Agitha is a bit of a wildcard, summon...
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...
Tecmo Koei has announced that Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will hit stateside on September 2nd, 2014. It's scheduled for launch on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Vita, and Xbox One -- which is great news for all of you ...
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...
Koei Tecmo has been putting out a lot of footage for Hyrule Warriors lately, but most of it has been about Link. Now you can get a chance to see what Impa's all about in her new trailer, complete with a giant sword and ...
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...
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. 
Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn is coming on July 4th, priced at $40. If you pre-order it you'll get extra content, but I wouldn't worry about it too much since the core game comes with 100 mobile suits by default. The conten...
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. The Zelda side is like the yummy icing on the top.
I'm still surprised Hyrule Warriors exists and it's not because of the gratuitous cleavage. My favorite Zelda director, Eiji Aonuma, is apparently supervisor on the Tecmo project, which is being produced by Hisashi Koinuma an...
It sounds ridiculous, but Hyrule Warriors is one of my most anticipated games of the year. As someone who plays both Dynasty Warriors and Zelda games, I'm really interested in seeing how this mash-up pans out. ...
Tecmo Koei sends word that Warriors 3 Orochi 3 Ultimate is in development for the PS4 and Xbox One (both $59.99) as well as the PS3 ($49.99) and PS Vita ($39.99). This will be the series debut on the new generation of console...
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...
Hyrule Warriors, the Dynasty Warriors-esque action game set in The Legend of Zelda universe, is coming to Wii U this year. And developer Tecmo Koei hopes the game is a big hit, obviously.  Speaking in interview with Nikk...
Ready to cut through legions of Zelda opponents a la Dynasty Warriors? Tecmo Koei's Hyrule Warriors is releasing in Japan for Wii U this summer, according to a document recently released by Nintendo. As far as how long it'll ...
Tecmo Koei has honed in on the North American and European PC release date for Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition -- it's coming to Steam on May 13, 2014. The publisher included a handful of screenshots along with the announcement, including a shot of the graphics menu if you'd like to see what settings are customizable. Find those below.
Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn, previously announced for a summer digital PS3 release, has a date, July 4. It'll be $40. Nothing says Fourth of July like the laser light show that is exploding hundreds of mobile suits as you...
My experience with the PlayStation 4 version of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends was golden, but apparently some people have been encountering intermittent issues and framerate problems with the Vita port. As a respons...
One of my great gaming sins has been managing to somehow skip out on the entirety of the Dynasty Warriors series, but now that one of them is releasing on Steam, my days of being uninformed about all things Lu Bu are numbered...
I still remember the first time I ever laid eyes on a Dynasty Warriors game. It was a cold winter afternoon in 2000, and for whatever reason, one lone copy of Dynasty Warriors 2 was calling my name at a local Blockbuster...
Samurai Warriors 4 came out last week in Japan on the PS3 and Vita, and a few legendary characters will be joining the fray. Most notably is the well known swordsman Miyamoto Musashi -- who may also be remembered adventuring...
Yes, I still play Dynasty Warriors games. Despite the many iterations and enhanced ports, it's still good fun to just run around and slice up hundreds of dudes on a battlefield -- in that regard, the Warriors series is ...
Good evening, teens! Here’s today’s DTOID News update, which I’m turning into a weekly show so we can make more interesting things happen. Do you have Playstation Plus? Because depending on where you live, y...
It's a sad day in the Three Kingdoms, as Aeria Games has announced to players that they will be turning the lights off on the North American servers for Dynasty Warriors Online January 10. Forums will be closed the ...
I had to do a triple-take on this one. Internationally, the game is known as Warriors Orochi 3, but in Japan, it's called Musou Orochi 2 Ultimate. Whatever the case may be, the game has a brand new trailer showing of its Vit...
Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends will launch alongside the PlayStation 4 in Japan on February 22, 2014. The title is also coming to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Japan on November 8, 2013.
