The Legend Of Zelda universe as you’ve never seen it
The beloved Legend Of Zelda series takes a dramatic detour from the norm as Nintendo teams up with Koei Tecmo to deliver Warriors action gameplay in the Legend of Zelda universe. For the first time ever gamers will be able to control the likes of Ganondorf and Princess Zelda as well as ten other Zelda characters from some of the most valued videogame archives ever created
Featuring locations from Ocarina Of Time, Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword
Cut down entire legions of enemies as Link, Zelda, Midna and others use over-the-top Dynasty Warriors-style moves. This tour de force through the beloved locales of Hyrule will have players battling some of the fiercest enemies in The Legend of Zelda history, all while being surrounded by classic sounds and theme tunes from the Legend of Zelda universe.
Classic pairings in 2-player co-operative mode
Two players can play local co-op, with one player joining with the Wii U GamePad controller and another with the Wii U Pro Controller or Wii Remote + Nunchuk controllers. As well as visual references to characters and locales from Twilight Princess, Ocarina Of Time and Skyward Sword, fans will also relate to an awesome soundtrack and sound effects inspired by decades of Legend Of Zelda magic.
13 playable characters
Whether you’re a fan of the heroes or have a penchant for villains, Hyrule Warriors has a wide array of playable characters on offer. You may be used to controlling Link, and Twilight Princess fans will have experienced the wolf-riding joys of Midna but Hyrule Warriors lets you take controls of series favourites such as Princess Zelda, Sheik, Impa, Ghirahim, Zant, Agitha and even the mighty Ganondorf
Classic locales revisited
Some of the greatest games in the Legend Of Zelda series history have been recreated in glorious HD. Whether it’s the open fields of Ocarina Of Time, the somber greys of Twilight Princess or the refreshing breeze of Skyward Sword, playing through Hyrule Warriors will bring the memories flooding back! And even if you haven’t had the pleasure of playing those games, you’re in for a visual treat with a wide variety of backgrounds and architecture in which to rumble.
2-player co-op multiplayer
Ever had to take it in turns to play through a new Legend Of Zelda game? We know we have but Hyrule Warriors supports 2-player co-operative multiplayer so you can cruise through missions with a friend. One player uses the Wii U GamePad while the other takes control of the action on the big screen with a Wii Remote & Nunchuck. Now it’s even more satisfying to take down the hungry hordes!
Ferocious Hyrule enemies
Throughout the game’s lengthly story mode you’ll visit dungeons that you may have been in before in previous games… but some things may have changed. For example, you’ll go up against enemies that might be a whole lot more ferocious than you remember. Raging reptile King Dodongo makes an impressive return, as does multi-headed menace, Manhandla. Each boss character will require some thought in order to take them down effectively.
