With the announcement that the Wind Waker can be used as a weapon in Hyrule Warriors, we now have a trailer that showcases Queen Zelda using it to fend off several enemies. This is a great look at Zelda in the game, but be sure and check out our E3 preview of the game, where we chose to play as Zelda through the demo level. Hyrule Warriors releases in September. local_offer hyrule warriors koei tecmo Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. Vorpal Blade Old. Saw this last week. uPadWatcher Except the fact that it’s been edited in ENGLISH! Cody McKrell This game looks so stupid. Theres a thousand enemies on screen and not one of them is doing anything but waiting patiently for the player to kill them. One is standing RIGHT NEXT TO HER for like 10 seconds for crying out loud! What the hell is wrong with japanese devs this gen? uPadWatcher What you’ve failed to know that each of the video are just demonstrations on how the game works and the abilities they use. There’s nothing wrong with Japanese developers… they want to create the best of both worlds– Warriors (most popular franchise in Japan) and The Legend of Zelda franchise. My best advice from me to you… is just accept it. Cody McKrell Yeah, thats what i said: these videos are demonsrating how stupid this game is. uPadWatcher Your comment is a double standards. Hyrule Warriors is a fun and unique game that combines two of the most popular franchises. U just salty because you have not played a game that haven’t been released until this freaking September! Cody McKrell Im not salty, i’m wondering why the zelda franchise is being wasted on a game full of enemies that in every gameplay instance ive seen, stand there defenseless waiting for the next over dramatic character animation to kill them. uPadWatcher You are indeed salty because your hypocrisy on a game that’s gonna be a system seller next month in their native country. You’re giving us gamers a bad name. Cody McKrell Yeah, maybe. But i’m mostly literate and well-versed in the language i use to share my opinions. Which, well, you know, separates the two of us by large margins. uPadWatcher Except your comments are flawed and 100% pure grade A bullshit. You don’t know shit about two popular franchises… Zelda and the Warriors series. YOU LOSE! GOOD DAY SIR! Hahgay LOL GO FUCK YOUR MAJORAS MASK CARTIDGE LOLOLOLOLOL 00EpicGamer00 You do realize this “Zelda game” is a mash up between of course Zelda and Dynasty Warriors, right? In Dynasty Warriors, the AI is suppose to be low. There is suppose to be thousands of enemies on the screen at once that are easy to defeat. This game is basically Dynasty Warriors with a Zelda skin. I’ve never played Dynasty Warriors but I’ve heard that those games have different difficulty levels. Most likely Nintendo is on the easiest difficulty when making the trailers for the game. Perhaps you should do more research before you insult Japanese devs for making a spinoff of an already existing franchise. Cody McKrell My opinion is based on the research ive done. Ive watched every character reveal up to this point and every instance of actual gameplay that i can find. Ive even read a handful of previews from people that, unlike most of you, have played the game and are experienced with the warriors series. Zelda deserves better than this copy-paste garbage. uPadWatcher Except your research is inconclusive and a fucking FAIL! Cody McKrell Inconclusive to you, maybe. But i believe enough has been shared by enough outlets to conclude that this game at it’s best, will still ultimately be pretty stupid. uPadWatcher Your data is more flawed than Mr. Spock’s logic. And I said GOOD DAY! Rinslowe Whoa whoa whoa there fella. Spock’s logic is SOLID maann! o_O 00EpicGamer00 I’ve done research on the Dynasty Warriors franchise too, you know? That’s why I know all of that information. I’ve gotten information from people that’s played the games as well. Have I ever played a game in the franchise? No, but I know what the series contains. And I at least acknowledge it’s existence. I bet you’ve never played a game in the series either. So, you honestly shouldn’t be so judgmental to a game you have no experience in. “Zelda deserves better than this copy-past garbage.” Okay, then what do you want Nintendo to do? Nintendo is trying to release as many games as possible in as little time as possible. Making a spinoff to the Zelda franchise not only is another game for us but it’s a Zelda-like game to play in the meantime. I honestly like the fact that Link and Zelda are fighting in a war. It’s a cool concept. Cody McKrell Oh, dude, it absolutely is a cool concept. One i was excited for, actually. But just because they need games doesnt mean they should be tossing them off to everybody that needs to make a buck. Why not base a game on the established zelda combat, exactly how it works in the mainline series installments with ‘z-targeting’ and go from there after creating more combat abilities? I mean, honestly, man. Think about it. Would you put dynasty warriors and zelda on the same level of awesome in any reality ever? 00EpicGamer00 “Would you put dynasty warriors and Zelda on the same level of awesome in any reality ever?” To tell you the truth, I don’t care. I just want good games that look fun. Of course there’s other franchises Nintendo could have chosen than Dynasty Warriors but it looks fun to me. And that’s what’s most important. Are there other franchises that might of made the game look more fun than what it is now? Sure, of course. But this is what we got. No use complaining about what it could have been. T J I grew up with the original Dynasty Warriors games (I think I started with #2 or #3), and its meant to be a simple hack and slasher. ‘Z-targeting’ would be slow and just ruin the pacing. I love Zelda, and I personally am glad to have a fun and mindless hack’n-slash with colorful characters and nostalgia on top of it. Rinslowe I’ve played two games in the series. One on PS3 and the other on PS2 (extremee legends and empires forget the no’). Both were ok experiences for what they were. But expecting more than what it is, will just cause frustration and disappointment. Lol. And exactly, I don’t get all the beef people have with a simple Zelda themed DW game. Don’t like it. Don’t buy it… 00EpicGamer00 Your post is basically what every Hyrule Warriors hater should heed. If they hate the game with every fiber in their body, why make themselves miserable looking at videos of it? And honestly, what is there to hate about it? So what if it’s a Zelda themed DW game. At least it’s something “fresh” and “new.” And something that was completely unexpected. Jared Lytle Yes because on a demonstration of abilities you are totally gonna put the difficulty level on hard. Cody McKrell Im not saying it has to be on hard, i’m saying these abilities ultimately pointless if the things youre killing arent even allowed to hit you. uPadWatcher Quit being so f*cking judgmental on an unreleased game, kid! Cody McKrell Quit defending something youve never played, son. uPadWatcher Piss off, Cody. Unlike you, Hyrule Warriors shows great potential and overall high quality. Cody McKrell Riiight. You should keep swearing, though. Thats bound to make this game less stupid. uPadWatcher Fuck off, Cody! Jared Lytle Sir the only thing stupid here is you, now I bet you’re a troll and I don’t know why we are even responding to you. BUT ANYWAY why don’t you find something better to do with your time rather than starting baseless and idiotic arguements on the internet. Cody McKrell No, i stated an opinion -that this game is stupid- based on conclusions ive drawn from whats been shown and discussed about this game. I’m not a troll because i think we deserve better than this. If anything, i’m, like, an anti-troll. Jared Lytle And yet the only evidence you’ve used to claim that this game is bad has already been disproven. So you are drawing conclusions based on made up evidence. Sounds like a troll to me. uPadWatcher From the smell of BS… Cody is indeed a troll. Cody McKrell Hopeful speculation doesnt discredit or disprove years of mediocre warriors formula, cheech. Also, evidence isnt made up if it’s basically on display in every warriors game ever made and in every gameplay demonstration hw has had put out for it. Jared Lytle Yes, but your original arguement was toward the difficulty not the formula. Also are you honestly complaining now that a dynasty warrior spinoff is like dynasty warriors? What did you expect?! I’ll enjoy this game if it’s too easy I’ll ramp up the difficulty. Also with the unique bosses, areas, and the fact that I love map control games especially on the hardest difficulty. I think this will be great Cody McKrell No, my original argument was that this game looks stupid and is such a tragic waste of an ip that honestly deserves better than ‘warriors spinoff.’ The warriors team, with the timeline freedom they had and potential gameplay they could have implemented, could have really had something special. Instead they settled for less and, to me, it shows. It’s one thing to make a gundam game that misses the point of gundam, it’s quite another to have one of the great videogame ip’s bestown upon you and do absolutely nothing with it. uPadWatcher You are a troll, Cody. You lack evidence and you are a racist just because it’s a video game developed in Japan. If you want graphics developed in America, go to a movie theater. Jared Lytle Shush, fans that spout off obsceneties make us fans looks bad so just saying, stay your tongue next time. Cody McKrell No ones talking about graphics but you, sweet pea. Stay focused. This is about gameplay. uPadWatcher Something that you’ve failed to understand, Racist McSalty. Petri Hypocrite much? Quit judging something you’ve never played, son. It’s just way the games are sold. Reveal trailer for DW 8 PS4 edition, not much but grunts standing around and waiting for spanking. http://youtu.be/hYm2HqA6Xl8 Cody McKrell Oh, yeah. You sure showed me. That doesnt look every bit as stupid as hyrule warriors at all. You should see the hard mode video the one guy posted. Players actually get hit every now and again. What a game! Totally not a tragic waste of the zelda franchise at all! 00EpicGamer00 I’m not a guy, actually. Mind blowing, I know. I was trying to give you what you asked for. Evidence that enemies can attack you. The video was just suppose to be an example. You asked if enemies can attack you, I get you a video that shows just that. I’m pretty sure Nintendo will make this spinoff a tad more different than what the regular customs for Warrior games are. Petri So which one are you bitching about? You do not have to play the game, and this game will not mark the direction of either of the series. Jared Lytle Do you not understand what diffuculty levels are? ON EASY OF COURSE THE ENEMIES AREN’T GOING TO OVERWHELM YOU. This was probably filmed on easy and on hard mode they would most likely slaughter you. 00EpicGamer00 I’m afraid that statement completly throws all your credibility out the window. The enemies CAN hit you. But like what Jared said below, this video was most likely filmed on the easiest difficulty. Therefore, the enemies not getting as much attacks in. If it was filmed on hard difficulty, every enemy on the screen would probably be launching attacks at you. Since this is easy difficulty, it’s not really rocket science that the enemies get little to no hits in. Cody McKrell Credibility? Wtf are you talking about? It’s my opinion that this game is stupid. I base that off the warriors franchise, the quality of the zelda ip, the videos released to promote this game, professionally written previews from people that wanted to like this game and every single piece of gameplay thats been exampled by nintendo themselves. Im sorry it hurts your feelings, but this game looks stupid. uPadWatcher In other words, you’re not an expert at playing games in general. Thus, you’re nothing but a fat ass troll getting attention like a crack prostitute. Go outside and do something credibility for a change. Cody McKrell Temper, temper. The word you want in that sentence is ‘credible.’ Be that as it may, i just got home from work, came here to see what i had to look forward to on wii u, saw this game- which ive seen a lot about- and decided that it’s a stupid reskin of an ultimately stupid franchise that we deserve better than. uPadWatcher Whore please. You’re the one who shows temper and a racist asshole. Cody McKrell Im not racist because i expect better from people that can do better. uPadWatcher You are a racist! You’ve just proven yourself that you hate Japanese developers. Keep wearing your confederate flag all you want, but your lack of evidence proves that you’re nothing but a troll and a hypocrite. Good day sir. Cody McKrell Im not lack evidence. My opinions are based off gameplay designed to promote this pile of crap as a game worth owning… Do you not honestly know what hypocrite means? uPadWatcher Bullshit, Racist McFailure. You don’t have any game experience except your fucked up assumptions. I’m done talking to you. If you ever reply back to me, I’ll be back. Cody McKrell So, for the record, then, youre not done talking to me? Cm punk, is that you? uPadWatcher I told your hypocritical ass that I’d be back! Now fuck off! Cody McKrell Your parents and i are very disappointed in you and your electronic conduct, young lady. uPadWatcher And your parents and I are fucking pissed off at your hypocrisy, dumb whore! 00EpicGamer00 “Credibility? Wtf are you talking about?” In your last post, you said this: “i’m saying these abilities ultimately pointless if the things youre killing arent even allowed to hit you.” According to that statement, you believe enemies in this game “arent allowed to hit you.” When, that is actually false. You said you did research. But you clearly did not. If you did, you’d know that enemies can hit you. Cody McKrell Link me to the gameplay video where a grunt whos fully capable of getting a hit in actually gets one, then. 00EpicGamer00 I didn’t think you were this stupid. I mean come on. Do you really think Nintendo is going to release a character reveal trailer, with the said character getting beaten down by enemies? No, they’re going to obviously show the character beating the enemies. Not the other way around. I beginning to think you don’t know what difficulties levels are. Here’s a link to a Dynasty Warriors video, and guess what? The enemies attack the player:http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Oip0Is__7ps Also, if the enemies didn’t have the ability to even attack you, why would a health bar be there in this video? Also, if you look closely in the Zelda video up there, I think she gets attacked by one of the enemies from behind. At least, that’s what it looks like. Cody McKrell And yet i expected you to be a moron and am disappointed that youve yet to prove me wrong. I didnt ask for a dw 8 video either. Nor did i limit you to character reveal trailers. HW has gameplay floating around out there full of nothing but main characters beating the crap out of grunts that dont fight back. But, sure, go ahead and keep defending a game that has hundreds of enemies on screen that dont do anything. I’m sure hw will be every bit as good as all the warriors games. Which, is of course to say, that it’ll be stupid and a complete waste on an iconic ip such as zelda. 00EpicGamer00 Okay so, let me get this straight. I give you flat out evidence that enemies can attack you in the Dynasty Warriors franchise, and I think Zelda gets attacked in the video above. But you call ME a moron? The logic you have really astounds me. Just wow, I think I just lost faith in humanity. Cody McKrell Well, wouldnt you have to be a moron? I’m talking about hw and the fact that grunts in gameplay AWAY FROM CHARACTER DEMONSTRATIONS have no discernable offense and youre linking me to dynasty warriors hard mode videos that PROVE they hit you. Now youre saying you ‘think’ zelda gets hit in the video above. My point Your head. 00EpicGamer00 So, what’s your point? I don’t see the point you’re trying to make. Is it that you THINK characters STILL can’t attack you in Dynasty Warrior games? If so, than you need more help than I thought. I hate to dissapoint you, but the character reveal trailers…….Are gameplay. So, if Zelda indeed does get hit in this video, then I was right this entire time. Cody McKrell My god…i hadnt realized i was defending myself to special needs kids until just now. As you were, everybody! HYRULE WARRIORS WILL BE AWESOME! September cant come fast enough! 00EpicGamer00 Dude, you misinterpreted my intention. I don’t care if you like the game. All I cared about was making sure you had all the facts correct. Also, to be fair, there’s many different things you could have done to have a completely different outcome from this huge “argument.” First of all, I respect your opinion that you don’t like the looks of this game but even you must admit you were a little rude in your execution, yes? Instead of saying “Hyrule Warriors is crap.” You could have sad, instead: “well…this game doesn’t really look that good to me. Is the game really this easy?” I guarantee, if you would of said something like that at the beginning, you would of had a different outcome that you’d probably be happy with. Having an opinion is obviously okay. But being a little bit of a jerk about it isn’t exactly going to help much. Just a little tip for future reference. :3 wiimenonowiiu The game is filmed on the abilities the toons can do and its based on going on a killing rampage zelda style for zelda players this will be alot of fun darkcreap Good to know, because I have seen several trailers and I thought that that was the only difficulty level. I wouldn’t like a game to be that easy. I want a bit of challenge. I hope that it is as you say in the final version. 00EpicGamer00 Oh no, not at all. From what I’ve learned, Dynasty Warrior games have different difficulty levels. I can’t see why Nintendo wouldn’t put a difficulty mode for this Zelda spin off. So, I don’t think there’s anything to worry about regarding how easy it looks. Maybe the hardest mode in the game will be called hero mode. Also, remember that these are character reveal trailer. They aren’t going to have the enemies destroying the character, lol. C4 These enemies are popcorn at least on lower difficulty. Kirbyomega Dude, pretty sure they made the enemies stand still like that just to show off the moves Rinslowe Wife confirmed for coop. Check. Shane Michaels I didnt know you had tied the knot. Learn something new each day.. Rinslowe Many years ago… bistricky Liking what I am seeing …. This will be a day 1 buy …. It will be cool to see a steady and high frame rate for this game on the Wii U. Merry_Blind Yeah I REALLY hope it’s 60fps. Action games like these are just much more responsive and more fun at 60fps. Also, the visuals look great IF it’s 60fps, but if it’s only 30fps, they’re kind of underwhelming a bit. bistricky Looking at the only other Warriors game for the Wii U (Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper) …. the game was pretty good but frame rate issues was quite bad. With so much action, it will be a something to see if the programmers overcome similar frame rate issues with Hyrule Warriors. Although I suspect they have. If they get it to a steady 60fps I would be more then pleasantly surprised. cory mccallister so when are we going to get a katamari game for wii u uPadWatcher Wrong room, dude. Merry_Blind Was there one with motion controls on Wii? Because that’s a game in which motion controls would be really fun! They should make a new Monkey Ball too, Banana Blitz on Wii had potential, but it was wayyy too sensitive and thus hard to control. companyoflosers see i like the zelda themed part but dynasty warriors doesnt deserve it. just look at the enemies that just stand there RIGHT next to her as she does all these complicated moves! doesnt look challenging at all and it doesnt convince me at all that they are doing anything different other than applying a really pretty reskin to their already outdated engine. if there was a time to reinvent a stale series, now would have been the time to do it. zelda deserves better. uPadWatcher That’s where you’re completely wrong, loser. Dynasty Warriors truly deserve it because the Warrriors series is the most popular in Japan than us here in the USA. Nintendo and Koei Tecmo Games have been showing great relationship when making the best of both worlds. The same goes to the Big N’s relationship with Platinum Games when it comes to making Bayonetta 1 (enhanced HD version) and Bayonetta 2. Never judge a book by its cover or you’ll miss all of that heavenly glory that is Hyrule Warriors. Merry_Blind Actually, the cover looks great! companyoflosers so just cuz its popular in a waning demographic means its all okay? just because two companies get along and show some good will, it means the one making the game can still use the SAME obsolete engine game after game and just puts a coat of fresh paint on it and call it new? dont compare this to bayonetta, bayonetta will at least make changes in between iterations. dynasty warriors on the other hand cant lift a fucking finger to introduce something besides a new theme to base their game on in the way of fucking model reskins. just because you put characters and enemies from a game i like into another, doesnt make that game as good as the actual series its from. ill show some faith in hyrule warriors if and ONLY if it comes out and shows it can separate itself and place it apart and above the hum-drum dynasty warriors games they keep cloning over and over. uPadWatcher Says the jealous hypocrite. companyoflosers lmao thats your best retort? wtf suggests to you that im jealous OR a hypocrite? all ive done so far is give viable reasons why im doubtful over this game. you dont have to like my opinion and i dont care if you do. you responded to MY comment, not the other way around. people resort to name calling only when they are desperate and run out of things to say. and i never said i could never like a dynasty warriors game, only that i could never like a dynasty warriors game that is just a recycled reskin of the last which is all they have ever done. they need to show they are willing to make improvements and changes to better the game that go beyond just how it looks. give me a reason to believe why this will be any different then every other dynasty warriors game they have ever made. Christian Schoff Dude this trailer is just to show off the attacks. They won’t actually do that in the game. -_- Will.F. Martinez Keeps looking better and better Arkamarky I hope we can change the difficulty so we can fight against smarter enemies ’cause they look pretty weak and stupid 😛 mateorush90 I wonder if the minions are capable of attacking at all… discuss Junk like dynasty warriors shouldn’t get the privilege to work with a Zelda theme. If they where confident about their game they wouldn’t need to steal skins from another game. uPadWatcher Shut up Meg discuss Meg? Yuuki Wow did she just play the Lost Woods song?
