Hyrule Warriors DLC contents confirmed, some characters are free


Cia, Volga, and Wizzro
Sep 18
// Chris Carter
In my review of Hyrule Warriors, I noted that during the course of the experience I got a free update -- an additional mode that added extra levels. It looks like the free DLC parade isn't done yet, as an upcoming update will...

Zelda has a lot of unstable antagonists - Ghirahim gets a new video


Dragon, not lizard - I don't do that tongue thing
Aug 14
// Chris Carter
Mulan's Mushu might not do that tongue thing, but Skyward Sword villain Ghirahim sure does! The vain villain joins the fray in a rather interesting trailer, which shows off his swordplay, diamond animations, and su...

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...

European limited edition of Hyrule Warriors includes that awesome scarf too


No scarf for North America ... yet at least

// Hamza CTZ Aziz
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...

Ganondorf brings a long red mane to Hyrule Warriors


Watch the whole Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Direct
Aug 04

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...

Lana's Deku Stick has some major flower power in Hyrule Warriors


This is probably the most traditional Warriors weapon yet
Aug 04
// Chris Carter
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...

Hyrule Warriors' Link costume DLC is for Zelda nerds only


A cool thing for people who like uncool things
Aug 02
// Jonathan Holmes
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 ...

Sheik

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


First a badass baton, now a harp
Jul 30
// Chris Carter
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.

Darunia will hammer all-comers


Watch out for harsh rhetoric!
Jul 27
// Jonathan Holmes
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...

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...

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
// Brittany Vincent
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.

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 ...

Fi revealed to be playable in Hyrule Warriors


I hope she doesn't stop to help the player every five seconds
Jul 08
// Chris Carter
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...

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


And I guess she knicked Link's hookshot
Jul 07
// Steven Hansen
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 is next up to show her stuff in Hyrule Warriors


That's one badass book

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...

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


Glitch assisted or not, the athleticism shines through

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...
