Hyrule Warriors

Hyrule Warriors' Link costume DLC is for Zelda nerds only


A cool thing for people who like uncool things
Aug 02
This trailer gave me a case of the vapors. Those three Zelda games may look similar to those who only have a passing familiarity with the series, but for those who've played them all in-depth, they represent three very ... read
Sheik

Yep, Sheik is definitely getting some Hyrule Warriors playtime from me


First a badass baton, now a harp
Jul 30
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. read
Hyrule Warriors

Darunia will hammer all-comers


Watch out for harsh rhetoric!
Jul 27
Most of the official trailers for Hyrule Warriors are short compilations showing off big and boisterous attacks. What they haven't shown is much of the game's overall flow and pacing. That's caused some to worry that Nintend... read
Hyrule Warriors

Princess Ruto looks like one of the coolest characters in Hyrule Warriors


Uh, I'm sold
Jul 25
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... read
Smooth McGroove

Smooth McGroove makes me feel horrible about my humming abilities yet again


I used to be proud to be able to hum the whole Final Fantasy VII soundtrack
Jul 22
Smooth McGroove does it again with this wonderful arrangement of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link's Temple/Palace Theme. This man is a bundle of talent and I can't wait to see his next new take on an old classic. As a rule, YouTube personalities don't normally impress me in this manner, but I've enjoyed Smooth's takes on classic gaming tunes. Perhaps it'll brighten your day a bit as well.  read
Hyrule Warriors

Zelda even kicks ass with the Wind Waker in hand in Hyrule Warriors


Conduct a massacre
Jul 17
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 ... read
Hyrule Warriors

Behold Fi in all her Hyrule Warriors glory


She looks fun
Jul 14
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 ... read
Fi

Fi revealed to be playable in Hyrule Warriors


I hope she doesn't stop to help the player every five seconds
Jul 08
As I've discussed many times before, I like the idea of Fi in theory, in terms of her character design (that skating was awesome), and her place in the story. But in practice, she ended up being a 40 hour long tutorial that w... read
Hyrule Warriors gameplay

Ride wolves & sticky hand slap fools with Midna in Hyrule Warriors


And I guess she knicked Link's hookshot
Jul 07
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. read
Hyrule Warriors Agitha

Agitha the Bug Princess looks fun to play in Hyrule Warriors


Including a giant spirit beetle
Jul 04
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... read
Hyrule Warriors Lana

Lana is next up to show her stuff in Hyrule Warriors


That's one badass book
Jul 01
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... read
Speed Runs

Skyward Sword and 1001 Spikes speed runs will get your blood pumping


Glitch assisted or not, the athleticism shines through
Jun 28
Skyward Sword and 1001 Spikes may not look like they have a lot in common, but they share a lot of the same design sensibilities. Both games are about exploring relatively small, densely packed areas that appear simple on th... read

Jun 26
This is one of those games that's just plain fun to look at, wouldn't you say? The Japanese Hyrule Warriors website has been updated with loads of new screenshots, and a look at (premium) alternate costumes for Zelda and Link... read

Zelda gets a chance to shine in this Hyrule Warriors featurette


That's the power of light
Jun 25
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... read

Impa has a giant sword in Hyrule Warriors


Oh, and she kicks ass
Jun 24

Link wrecks an army with the Fire Rod in this new Hyrule Warrior video


I can't get enough of these
Jun 23
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... read
Link

Watch Link kill some stuff in this Hyrule Warriors character trailer


He wrecks a Dodongo
Jun 20
Hyrule Warriors is starting to come together. We know a few of the core characters, a ton of info, and we even have a release date. All there's left to do is wait, and in the meantime, you can watch this pretty badass c... read

Zelda Williams likely teasing Majora's Mask 3DS for 'surprise' announcement


What else would she be holding that mask for?
Jun 11
Zelda Williams has had an interesting presence at E3 2014, and given her namesake it's not surprising to see her hanging around. But regarding her "extra special" surprise at E3 that we touched upon late in May, she may have ... read

Zelda producer hints that things might be different for the protagonist
Jun 11
Yesterday's reveal of The Legend of Zelda on Wii U got many people excited. With the tease of a new visual style and a more open world to explore, there was yet another reason for people to consider purchasing a Wii U. Howeve... read

The Legend of Zelda LEGO set fails approval


The LEGO Idea campaign was pretty amazing
Jun 04
LEGO has a pretty cool website where people can essentially crowdvote on LEGO ideas that they'd like to become a reality. Since all of the licensing deals have to be worked out before it hits the market it's not a 100% foolpr... read

Zelda Williams teases something 'extra special' at E3


Let me guess - a Zelda game that will take four years to come out
May 28
Zelda Williams has been involved with Nintendo for quite some time, lending them a hand with promotional materials and commercials as a fan of their games. But she also has something else planned this year -- an "extra specia... read
Minish Cap

Man, Minish Cap sure looks just as great on the Wii U


A new trailer is here
May 27
As I said in my Zelda Quest, Minish Cap is a pretty underrated game in general. It arrived at the twilight of the Game Boy Advance, when the DS was hitting its stride, and many people skipped it as a result. But th... read

Why I'm glad The Legend of Zelda's Hyrule isn't real


Oh hell no!
Jan 18
I always wanted to travel to The Legend of Zelda's Hyrule, among other amazing fantasy worlds I've virtually visited; that is until I saw these amazingly disturbing pictures by artist Nate Hallinan. Seriously look at that skulltula... WTF! And I thought Australia had it bad when it came to eight-legged critters.   read
