Hyrule Warriors slashing through nameless enemies in Japan this summer

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 be until we can get our hands on the game, well, that's to be determined.

Hyrule Warriors looks as though it could be a big bounty of silly fun, but I can't help thinking that it's going to be one of those titles I sit down with for an hour or two and then shelve for something decidedly meatier. It's an interesting route to take familiar characters and the Zelda universe in, however, and I'll be following it upon its eventual Western release, whenever that may be.

For now, we'll have to be content with whatever scraps are thrown at us after Hyrule Warriors' summer debut in Japan.

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

Agitha the Bug Princess looks fun to play in Hyrule Warriors

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...more

Lana is next up to show her stuff in Hyrule Warriors

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...more

Mysterious Super Saiyan revealed in new Dragon Ball Xenoverse demos

A new batch of screens and art have revealed more of the mysterious figure seen during the announcement of Dragon Ball Xenoverse at E3 2014. This character, uncharacteristically for Saiyans, seems to have red hair instead of ...more

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Sunken King

2014 has been very good to me, but Dark Souls II is one of my favorite games of the year. Many debates have raged on as to whether or not it's as exceptional as its predecessor (Demon's Souls is better than bot...more
