Hyrule Warriors, the Zelda-skinned Dynasty Warriors game, has a release date- at least for Japan anyways. Famitsu has revealed that the game, known as Zelda Musou in Japan, will be released on August 14th.
Hyrule Warriors is a collaborative effort between Nintendo and Tecmo Koei. Not much is known about this game beyond what was shown in the initial trailer. It clearly plays like a Dynasty Warriors game with Link, sporting a blue scarf in addition to his iconic clothes, slashing through hordes of moblins. But it also hints at incorporating Zelda elements, such as items like bombs and the fire staff. Also, boss characters appear to be more than just grunts with more health than everyone else if the Dodongo in the trailer is to be believed. Just for good measure, there will be treasure chests for Link to slowly open before holding the item up high proudly.
We will hopefully get a North American release date for Hyrule Warriors very soon. The Electronic Entertainment Expo is just around the corner, and chances are Nintendo will be taking that opportunity to reveal many, many release dates for their upcoming titles. Nintendo will be streaming their Nintendo Digital Event on June 10 at 9 A.M. PT.
