The lights are on
Nintendo has been drip-feeding us details on the upcoming Legend of Zelda/Dynasty Warriors collaboration in the months since its announcement. In a new trailer, we've got some additional details on what to expect from Hyrule Warriors, including multiplayer and overworld exploration, as well as some new characters in action for the first time.
The trailer shows a glimpse of two players roaming the battlefield at once - one on a TV using a Wii U Pro controller, and the other on the Wii U GamePad's screen. We also get a brief look at progression on the overworld map, modeled after the Hyrule from the original title, which presents opportunities to find treasure and complete trials.
You may have also noticed some previously unannounced characters making their first appearance in this trailer, such as Sheik and Princess Ruto from Ocarina of Time. Sheik totes the signature harp into battle, and Ruto throws water bombs and summons typhoons to drown enemies.
Hyrule Warriors launches September 26 for Wii U. For more, read our impressions of the recently announced Darunia and check out our running log of playable characters.

"on the upcoming Legend of Zelda/Dynasty Warriors collaboration...."
Ugh, so this really needs to be mentioned in every article about this game? I know it´s basically a DW game with Zelda graphical mode, but it just looks so bad for Zelda constantly being mentioned with *** like Dynasty warriors.
I fear this game will be bad. SO much potential wasted on a *** series as Dynasty Warriors. And Lana looks like such a cliche and boring anime character. It's dissapopointing.
Finally, I can roam Hyrule with a friend!
Whelp....gotta go find my wallet now...
I'm surprised this game hasn't already ripped a hole in the space/time continuum for the Zelda timeline.
3:00 marker...Zelda rips the moon from Majora's Mask into the planet... evil, pure evil.
I also feel that I cannot simply ignore that they put Darunia's classy dance into this game. Can't wait to see more of this game, I enjoy the mindless DW button mashing from time to time. I'm probably not going to buy it day one but I'll totally be downloading it onto my Wii U one day without a doubt.
I think it's safe to assume that all the bosses we saw will be playable.
this game looks better with every trailer. i have a feeling that this will turn into a lasting series if it sells well. if this game is really successful, nintendo will turn it into a brand collaboration game like smash bros. which is fine with me
