    A few new screenshots from the upcoming Legend of Zelda spin off Hyrule Warriors has released along with some new details.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    More here: Hyrule Warriors Screenshots
    Update: More screenshots here: http://animengaming.com/new-zelda-hyrule-warriors-screens/

    New details include:
    1. Releases August 14th
    2. Retail – 7,980 yen, eShop – 6,980, Premium Box Set – 11,664
    3. Premium set comes with a Triforce shaped clock, and serial codes for 6 special costumes.
    4. Will also be a ‘Treasure Box’ version available on Amazon and Tecmo Koei’s online store ‘GAMECITY’, but no details yet on what it includes.
    5. Developed by ωForce, Team NINJA, supervised by Aonuma.
    6. Story is Link an in-training soldier must rescue the Princess Zelda from the witch Shia who has been turned evil somehow.
    7. 2 player mode where one person is on the GamePad, while another is on the TV. When playing alone the GamePad acts as a menu.
    8. Equipping different weapons onto characters will change the way they fight, including speed focused one-handed swords to heavier weapons that focus on damage.
    9. Weapon upgrade system and character growth/improvement
    10. Musou action combined with the Zelda series’ Z-targeting means you can avoid attacks and focus on enemy weak spots.
    11. Zelda series’ spin attack appears instead of the Musou Ranbu (?) of the musou franchise.
    12. Bombs make an appearance, won’t just be used for throwing at enemies.
    13. Impa, a captain of the Royal Army, appears as a playable character wielding a giant long sword.
    14. Several other characters are playable too. Aonuma was surprised by how many.
    15. Playable at E3.
    16. Development is 70% complete.

    Interesting, being a Zelda Fanatic I'll surely be purchasing the edition with the Clock or whatever it is.
    Decent release date too. Hopefully E3 shows off a lot more.

    Link looks pretty :D I hope the new Zelda game will have Link looking somewhat like this, because it's similar to that tech demo we saw ages ago, which I liked! I guess will find out soon enough ^^

    I couldn't care less for the Dinasty Warriors franchise... but maybe this will end up being a really fun game.

    I gotta admit I'm interested. 4-swords adventure was pretty fun, and a 2-player co-op beat'm up game is also a + in my book. :)

    With Zelda gameplay/control mechanics. I say this game has me as hype as Zelda U. I'm a fan of Dynasty Warriors.

    I came here to say "boobs in a Zelda game?" as well.

    Game looks nice, especially if you're a fan of the musou games.

    I hope they tie this in to the missing "war" in the ALTTP timeline that they mention in the games lore, but seeing how they keep saying it's just a side story and not mainline, it's probably just that.
