Word has it that Hyrule Warriors launches for Wii U in Japan on August 14, 2014. That comes direct from Famitsu and there's of course no news on a Western date yet. However, some bits and pieces have been translated, such as the game's inclusion of "unexpected" playable characters. There's an image of Impa in the article! Maybe Impa is among them?

This is being developed by Dynasty Warriors' own Omega Force under the supervision of long-time Legend of Zelda series producer/director Eiji Aonuma. According to Famitsu, Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi is working on Hyrule Warriors as a producer alongside Hisashi Koinuma.

I'm strangely hopeful for someone who isn't super into either series. Something about this combination speaks to me and it's another thing to play on Wii U. Feeling good about it so far, ahead of E3. That's one sale you can count on, Tecmo Koei. Plenty more left to go.

See Sheik, Princess Ruto, and Darunia in action in Hyrule Warriors

This newest batch of Hyrule Warriors screenshots is pretty insane, and shows off the newly announced Sheik, Darunia, and Princess Ruto characters in all their glory. Darunia seems to have a giant hammer, most likely pinning h...more

Link suplexes giant rock cylinders and smashes in Hyrule Warriors

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.more

Sheik confirmed as playable in Hyrule Warriors

Well this is a surprise! According to Koei Tecmo we were supposed to get one character reveal today for Hyrule Warriors, and instead, we got three. As people expected since the start, Sheik will be making an appearance in a p...more

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

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 ...more

Behold Fi in all her Hyrule Warriors glory

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 ...more

These Hyrule Warriors screens are 'hnngh' worthy

A new batch of Hyrule Warriors screens have dropped, and man are they great. The bulk of them show off Fi and Link in action, with a host of items as well as Fi's vertical grace and aeriel maunveres. We also get a good look a...more

Fi revealed to be playable in Hyrule Warriors

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...more

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

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.more

Well, I won't be playing as Red Hood or Harley in Batman: Arkham Knight

GameStop teased an announcement that seems to have come out: a GameStop exclusive Red Hood story pack for the upcoming Batman game. Harley, we already knew, is a pre-order incentive at most major retailers. There's ...more

Platformer Freedom Planet borrows from the Sega Genesis greats

Freedom Planet looks like a lost Sega Genesis gem, but it's actually a brand new action-platform game created by GalaxyTrail. I remember hearing about it a while back from Tony Ponce -- first in 2012 and again last year when...more
