The lights are on
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.

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.
I'm liking this game more and more with each shot. Now give us a release date
This game looks bad ass! I cant wait to get it.
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.
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!
