Zelda Attacks - Hyrule Warriors | oprainfall

I’m here today to update you all on some exciting new info leaks about Hyrule Warriors! First off, though, I want to say how surprised I am by how very cool the Zelda/Dynasty Warriors hybrid is shaping up to look! Besides having a distinct graphical style, it oozes the same charm we have all come to love about the Zelda series. The icing on the cake is the vast array of playable characters we will be able to choose from. We all knew about Link, Impa and Zelda, but, courtesy of Famitsu, we now know of a couple of other characters will be playable! But before I go into details, let’s take a look at just how cool Impa looks wielding her giant sword and ice magic!

I mean sure, Impa was cool in Ocarina of Time, but now she’s just an undeniable force of nature! Speaking of nature, guess who one of the newly revealed characters is? Agitha, from Twilight Princess! No, you aren’t hallucinating. The crazy bug lady is back.

Fly my pretties, fly!

Also according to Famitsu, another character is coming called Lana (no, not from Archer). Details are scarce regarding who she may be, but it’s very possible she is either a new character or a really strange cameo from Captain N: The Game Master

Regardless, this game has gone from a mere blip on my radar to my next must have Wii U title. Cannot wait until September 26th when it finally launches in North America. Plus, I can’t help but wonder if Agitha will unleash her hideous bug beauties to attack hordes of monsters… Until then, stick with oprainfall for more Hyrule Warriors related goodness!

    We’ve already seen scans of the article in question (Though in admittedly low resolution). Lana is the blue-haired girl seen on the box-art, and has a playstyle based around magical barriers from her spell book.

    Dang, Impa’s pretty darn cool.

    For as much as Nintendo can’t seem to market the Wii U, they do seem to know how to build hype for a game. From mere blip to must have is exactly what I feel, similar to 3D World, where I was completely nonplussed when it was revealed, and had to (and did) buy it on day 1. I can already tell Impa will be my primary (if there is a choice of characters for each stage). She is so badass, and Link should be grateful she’s on his side.

    Impa is the best, but I already decided my main will be Link with the Fire Rod, but she can be my secondary main. Agitha, I don’t know why but I think she will play like Okuni fro Samura Warriors.
