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.

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

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.more

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

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...more

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

PS3/360 strategy game Bladestorm getting remade for some reason

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...more

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate looks so 'new generation'

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...more
