Destructoid's top 10 Wii U games (Part 1)

There are those who will say the Wii U never stood a chance. With its confusing name, poor marketing, and the lack of a blockbuster Nintendo-developed title at launch, it stood no chance of being the success its forbearer was. That’s ...

Toon Zelda is a g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-girl

Marin lets freedom ring in Hyrule Warriors

Marin looks like a good fit for Hyrule Warriors

We're far enough along into Hyrule Warriors Legends' DLC schedule that I'm feeling the call to come back. By the time the 3DS title released, I already had hundreds of hours with the original Wii U version under my belt and was utterly bur...

Linkle might be coming to future Zelda titles

"I'm sure we will keep [Linkle] in mind when thinking about future titles," Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma told IGN. "I had a chance to give feedback on Linkle during development, but the satisfying action of using a crossbow, which we devel...

Watch Skull Kid do his thing in Hyrule Warriors Legends

One of my most anticipated new features of Hyrule Warriors Legends, an expansion of sorts for the original Warriors, is Skull Kid. The new attacks shown in the video look amazing, and include moon abilities, as well as a fighting style fea...

Hyrule Warriors requires New 3DS to play in 3D

While Hyrule Warriors Legends, an updated Nintendo 3DS port of last year's action game, will be compatible with older models of the portable, its stereoscopic 3D effects will not. Speaking with 4Gamer at Tokyo Game Show, producer Yosuke Hay...

Hyrule Warriors 3DS adds Toon Link and the Helmaroc King

I'm trying not to pay too much attention to Hyrule Warriors Legends knowing full well how much time the original Wii U game ate up. But the expanded 3DS release sounds alluring, what with its on-the-fly character switching and new heroes, b...

Everyone look under your Hyrule Warriors chairs!

While everyone was off enjoying all of the new announcements that came out of E3, Hyrule Warriors got a really small update. How small? Well, Link now has an extra "Classic Tunic" costume for use in the game to celebrate the 3DS releas...

There's a max Rupee glitch in Hyrule Warriors

9,999,999 Rupees in Hyrule Warriors. Yeah, I could go for that. The game's community has been working tirelessly to figure out a newly discovered glitch that involves slaying a giant boss (King Dodongo, Gohma, etc.) with a weapon that has ...

Hyrule Warriors' play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we'll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I'm eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that jerk. Toes will ...

The Majora's Mask music in Hyrule Warriors is so damn catchy

I know it's early, but anyone else dig into the Majora's Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors yet? I've played about an hour of it today and I'm loving the Termina map, especially its music, embedded above. So upbeat despite that accursed moon loo...

Campy old Zelda CD-i games imagined as Hyrule Warriors DLC

Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon are two ill-fated Philips CD-i games that would be best left forgotten if they weren't such trainwrecks. Their legacy of unintentional hilarity endures through YouTube, gifs, and now th...

Did you know there's a Chain Chomp in Hyrule Warriors?

I'm on track to put more time into Hyrule Warriors than any other videogame in 2014. This is coming from someone who has spent, at most, half an hour with Omega Force's past titles. I may not be a Dynasty Warriors fan -- and, hell, I'm ofte...

Hyrule Warriors' amiibo support is boring

Nintendo has explained which amiibo toys do what in Hyrule Warriors and, frankly, the game's support for the near-field communication figurines is rather dull. With Link (or Toon Link), players can get the Spinner weapon from The Legend of ...

Wizzro looks like a must-play character in Hyrule Warriors

As I've said in the past, one of my favorite things about Hyrule Warriors is how different every character is. This new video showing off Wizzro exemplifies that fact, as he mostly operates at a mid-range capacity with various beam at...

Cucco's are still deadly in Hyrule Warriors

If you aren't familiar with the Zelda series, Cuccos are adorable little chickens who never attack the player character for any reason. Ok that's a lie, if you mess with a Cucco, you'll likely wind up dead, as they summon their entire...

The Dynasty Warriors team dreams about doing a Star Wars game
