Just yesterday we brought you some new information about the upcoming Hyrule Warriors from the latest issue of Famitsu, but now we have any more for you, this time some images and more information.
Famitsu had some images in the latest print magazine, but now they have released higher quality versions of these pictures on their own. Only three of these five images feature Link, with two other seemingly new characters shown off in them. This is not all, as a Japanese website has revealed a good bit of information, which has been translated by NeoGAF member StreetsAhead.
-Retail – 7,980 yen, eShop – 6,980, Premium Box Set – 11,664
-Premium set comes with a Triforce shaped clock, and serial codes for 6 special costumes.
-Will also be a ‘Treasure Box’ version available on Amazon and Tecmo Koei’s online store ‘GAMECITY’, but no details yet on what it includes.
-Developed by ωForce, Team NINJA, supervised by Aonuma.
-Story goes that Link, an in-training soldier, must rescue the Princess Zelda from the witch Shia, who has been turned evil somehow.
-2 player mode where one person is on the GamePad, while another is on the TV. When playing alone the GamePad acts as a menu.
-Equipping different weapons onto characters will change the way they fight, weapons including speed focused one-handed swords to heavier weapons that focus on damage.
-Weapon upgrade system and character growth/improvement
-Musou action combined with the Zelda series’ Z-targeting means you can avoid attacks and focus on enemy weak spots.
-Zelda series’ spin attack appears instead of the Musou Ranbu (?) of the musou franchise.
-Bombs make an appearance and won’t just be used for throwing at enemies.
-Impa, a captain of the Royal Army, appears as a playable character wielding a giant long sword.
-Several other characters are playable too. Aonuma was surprised by how many.
-Playable at E3.
-Development is 70% complete.
Some of this information was already known, but there is a good bit of new info as well here. You can check out the gallery of new images for the game for yourself below:
