Long-term support for Hyrule Warriors planned, 'expansion' teased

One day many years ago, I went into Starbucks with a friend. The barista inquired as to whether or not he'd want to try a new bakery item they had just concocted, to which he awkwardly replied, "not unless it's FREE!" It wasn...

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

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...

Hyrule Warriors concept art of a lady relative to Link that looks just like him

Some people got real squirrelly when they thought Link might have been a woman in the new Legend of Zelda. None of you, I'm sure. Our community has a noted love for the idea of Link as a woman. Anyway, here's some pictures fr...

Zant brings his craziness to Hyrule Warriors

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...

Dumb: Skyward Sword DLC exclusive to Best Buy, Twilight Princess to Amazon

Hyrule Warriors GameStop-exclusive DLC finally confirmed

Grass cutting CONFIRMED for Hyrule Warriors

Cutting grass is an important part of The Legend of Zelda, you know. So, we were happy to hear series producer Eiji Aonuma confirm during tonight's Nintendo Direct that this time-honored tradition would be making a glorious return in Hyrule Warriors. Who needs online multiplayer when you can chop up grass by your lonesome? Hyrule Warriors Direct [Nintendo]

Ganondorf brings a long red mane to Hyrule Warriors

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...

Something's missing from Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo may have dropped the ball

Nintendo confirmed that Hyrule Warriors will not have an online co-op story mode. A lot of Zelda fans have been excited for this creative treatment of the series, but how much of a blow will this news be to the hype? If nothing else, this at least sucks a little.

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.

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

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.

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...

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.

Agitha the Bug Princess looks fun to play in Hyrule Warriors

Hyrule Warriors may be reskinned Dynasty Warriors, but it's pretty

It is exactly Dynasty Warriors, but pretty enough that I almost want to play it regardless. And I'm not even a huge Zelda fan. Also, this is going to make so much money.

Hyrule Warriors is more Warriors than Hyrule

You knew that upcoming Wii U title Hyrule Warriors would be a blend of Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors and Nintendo's Legend of Zelda. But I'm here to tell you that the gameplay is much more like Dynasty Warriors than I thought it would be. Not that that's a bad thing. The Zelda side is like the yummy icing on the top.

Hyrule Warriors is Dynasty Warriors with Link in it

Nintendo has lost its mind. (In a good way. I think.) During this morning's Nintendo Direct presentation, company president Satoru Iwata revealed a collaboration with Tecmo Koei tentatively called Hyrule Warriors. The working title looks to combine Dynasty Warriors' hack and slash formula with The Legend of Zelda's universe. Weird! It's coming to Wii U sometime in 2014.
