Hyrule Warriors Release Date, New Details and Surprise Character on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

New details from the latest issue of Japanese magazine, Famitsu, have surfaced for Hyrule Warriors.

The Legend of Zelda spin-off brawler will slash its way into stores across Japan from August 14th, with different versions available.

The most affordable edition will be available as a download on the eShop for around 6,000 Yen with the retail/boxed version for around 7,000. The magazine also highlighted a Premium Box available for around 10,000 Yen.

Development is being lead by Team Ninja and Omega Force, with Hisashi Koinuma and Yosuke Hayashi as producers. Nintendo Legend of Zelda veteran Eiji Aonuma is acting as supervisor for the project to ensure it maintains the quality the franchise is known for.

Interestingly, there'll be a new enemy to do battle with, a female witch known as Shea, controlled by a "dark evil power". Her appearance is also connected to a missing Princess Zelda.

The magazine is also teasing that a "surprising character" will be playable in the game, confirming that there'll at least be someone other than Link to take the spotlight.

A "surprising character"? Let me hear a, "Ooooooooo!" or a, "Kooloo-Limpah!" What else strikes fear deeply within the souls of moblins but a scrawny man in a Spartan helmet or a middle aged man in fairy boy tights with sparkly confetti?

The Premium Box reportedly comes with a Triforce-shaped clock. I. Need. That.

Nintendo Legend of Zelda veteran Eiji Aonuma is acting as supervisor for the project to ensure it maintains the quality the franchise is known for.

Glad to hear this!

Easily want zelda as a playable character, something like a combination of bow and arrow and magic would be awesome for her weapons.
