Hyrule Warriors (Name Now Final) Gets New Screens, Playable Impa

Hyrule Warriors (Name not Final) has a final name… finally. The title, which will in fact be called Hyrule Warriors here in the west (it’s Zelda Musou in Japan), is on track for release this year. Nintendo has also revealed a new playable character: Hyrulean Captain Impa.

As you can see from the screenshot above, this isn’t the old woman from the original The Legend of Zelda. This Impa wields a massive sword and will be a formidable foe on the battlefield.

According to the official site, Link will be on a quest to rescue Zelda once more. In addition to Impa, other familiar characters will be playable (which will hopefully include Zelda and Ganondorf). 

Hyrule Warriors will be out this year worldwide.

  • Character models look better, but that ground texture still look bad.
  • I always thought impa was sheik.
  • IM ALMOST CLOSE TO GETTING A WII U , THE UPCOMING GAMES ARE LOOKING GOOD BUT I STILL THINK MOST OF ITS LINE UP ARE FOR SMALL KIDS THEY NEED SOME SERIOUS TITLES MAYBE SOME GOOD RPG'S AND THEN IM IN.
  • This game looks....bizarre to say the least. I find it weird its releasing in japan, but they dont have any plans on when(or if?) they are releasing in the US. If its anything like dynasty warriors it 'could' be cool, but id naturally have to see some gameplay first.
  • This is my number one reason to buy a Wii U!

  • The name is not final...eh it's final.

  • Looks pretty cool but some of the textures look baca.

  • Man, this game looking better and better. By the way... Gamexplain also has good evidence that Zelda is playable at some point.
  • Yeah it looks fun, then becomes a repetitive chore just like every Dynasty Warriors.
  • Guys, what if Groose is a playable character? What would just be the greatest.
  • Wait...the old woman in the cave from the original game in Impa...? Why didn't I know this?
  • I'm looking forward to playing this. My expectations aren't high so I doubt it'll be disappointing. The more playable characters the better.
  • I'm liking this game more and more with each shot. Now give us a release date

  • This is the article that should have been posted yesterday... Development seems to be coming along nicely. My hesitation about this game is slowly dissipating. I'm kinda surprised Nintendo is allowing TK to show so much skin on Shia. Very un-Nintendo.
  • This game looks bad ass! I cant wait to get it.

  • If you get to play as Fierce Deity Link then I'll definitely buy this.
  • not interested in this one.. maybe first "Zelda" game I don't want to play? (Zelda is used kind of loosely here). Nah, I guess I never wanted to play the CDi games and still don't.

  • Scarfs aren't cool
  • This is the most effeminate I've ever seen Link look. It's really nice to see Nintendo taking some risks with their established IPs, though.

  • You know what? Screw it. I don't even care if the game kind of sucks. Something that looks this cool can't be all bad. I'm excited!
