Tecmo Koei has been releasing character trailers for the upcoming Hyrule Warriors since the E3 demo. This week we get to check out Lana, the blue-haired warrior that’s an original character for this specific game. The trailer serves to showcase her unique fighting style, including casting barriers and the wall jump in order to get ahead of enemies. Are you pleased with the direction of this character, or will you be playing as one of the more well known characters from the series, such as Link, Zelda, Impa, or someone else? local_offer hyrule warriors Nintendo Tecmo Koei wii u stars Further Reading Switch vs Wii U game case size comparison Miyamoto dismisses the Wii U as a “nece 6 reasons to grab a Nintendo Switch before March 6 reasons to skip the Nintendo Switch for now Nintendo Switch Amazon Pre-Order Watch the Nintendo Switch reveal live! Jon I wonder who this Lana person is…. new character in the new Zelda game maybe? Darius same here the_battery it says right under the video: Tecmo Koei has been releasing character trailers for the upcoming Hyrule Warriors since the E3 demo. This week we get to check out Lana, the blue-haired warrior that’s an original character for this specific game. Jon yes I know but Lana, a character in HYRULE warriors. You’d think characters would have some connection to Hyrule. I am more wondering if this is kind of a foreshadow to something more. iamserious Don’t think it is. Timothy Mercier i wonder if jon is being sarcastc? Jon Obviously you two did not understand the question. I am wondering as a person who this is, what relation to the Hyrule world she has. I want to know about the character, the background, story etc. CEObrainz Whilst being a valid question, I highly doubt that we’d see new characters in this game before Zelda U Lance Grabow i could literally tell you by looking at her that she is just an insert character in the game to take advantage of the idol craze in japan and sell copies Brandon Olson My money’s on a human form of Nayru. Like how Zelda is Hylia reincarnated. Jon that thought never crossed my mind 😛 ×Zesty™Banks× (#FHWRoster) LANAyru sure seems interesting though. Darius First! majora :D Poor guy, lag is a b**** Darius yes it is 🙁 Petri This game looks better and better after each trailer. Though I don’t much like the look and abilities of Midna. MerryBlind . The ‘look’? She looks the exact same as in TP, doesn’t she? Petri I wouldn’t know, should I like her more if she did? MerryBlind . Oh ok I thought you were familiar with the character and thought the ‘new’ design wasn’t appropriate, which I found weird since she looks just the same as in TP. I agree though, I’ve never been a fan of Midna either. I remember really hating her when I first saw her in Twilight Princess, but I did get used to her over time and she doesn’t bother me anymore. Petri It’s not really the look, as in appearance, polygons, but more like her game play and fighting style that does not really appeal to me when compared to other characters. I have no real opinion on her as a character. MerryBlind . Fair enough. Pilu Skifte Grønvold Looks like it will be a fighting game? Darius well duh lol 00EpicGamer00 Nope, not at all. How did you possible come to the very insane conclusion that this will be a fighting game? It’s OBVIOUSLY going to be a platflorming game. Guest Well I was hoping it would be more like the classic Zeldas with puzzles and so on, not “just” a fighting game. Not very Zelda, Just disappointed is all. Never thought Zelda would become a fighting game. Pilu Skifte Grønvold Well I was hoping it would be more like the classic Zeldas with puzzles and so on, not “just” a fighting game. I don’t mind if it has cool fighting elements though, as long as it not the main theme. Not very Zelda, Just disappointed is all. Never thought Zelda would become a fighting game (but crossing my fingers). CEObrainz I wonder how a Super Smash Warriors would look…… Jason Obiechefu Lol Epicstuf What would be flying at the screen then? Tsijiari dont ike the new character, the dressing and arrogance are disgusting, i would prefer to have a true female character from zelda games like http://zeldawiki.org/images/thumb/4/4c/Ashei.png/450px-Ashei.png Alexander Kleinwechter are you some sort of feminist xD almost sounds like it. Lana looks freaking bad ass, her clothing is sexy lol ,but she looks like kicking ass, and shes cute too :3 soo i dont see where the problem is Magnus Eriksson Yeah, like feminism is a bad thing… Equal rights and equal pay for the same jobs are such a bad idea… Everyone who is right in their mind should be a feminist. Justin Rowan You’re right. Lana should get the same pay as link! Clearly thats what alexander was talking about. Magnus Eriksson “are you some sort of feminist xD almost sounds like it.” implicate feminism is a bad thing. But you dont understand that? Tank The reason feminism is a bad thing is because it’s getting abused. Most feminists get what they want then they want more MOST feminists just want female superiority… Key word: MOST Thomas Vienna I don’t usually say this, but I agree with Magnus. Any feminist I know wants the right things for the right reasons, and most people who argue just want women to stay attractive in their eyes (This is a perfect example, because Tecmo Koei is clearly selling the sex in a franchise that previously only used it for quirky or comical effect, and it shocks me how many people aren’t at least irked by it). It’s true that there are some feminists who actually don’t hold men in the same regard, but most that I know do, especially those that show women the same respect. J_Joestar I don’t think that feminism is bad, but i do find that there are a lot of internet feminists tend to overreact over a lot of minor things. Sure Lana is cute and spunky with a dash of sexy, but other than the argument that she feels a little awkward for the Zelda universe, what exactly is wrong with her? every series has their odd outliers at times. She is also shown to be fairly capable in a fight. Selling things using attractive characters isn’t that outrageous either, sure people love to say how DW/SW games tend to sell mostly for all the pretty girls but then ignore that there is also a notable fujoshi audience for those games as well. Jonathan Robitaille oh dear lord 00EpicGamer00 I agree with Alexander. I don’t really see what the problem with Lana is. There’s nothing about her character design that’s “disgusting” to me. Is she a little “revealing?” Sure, I guess, but it’s at least not anything over the top. You should at least be grateful that she’s wearing legit clothing and not anything “skimpy.” I’m a female myself, and I’m not offended by her character design at all. I’m actually kind of surprised you’re more offended by Lana than Minda. Since, you know…she’s not wearing any type of clothing except for a hat. sillybajillies Honestly, I’m 100% okay with the design and think the character is pretty cute. It’s just, she looks more like something out of an anime than a Zelda character. Her appearance (and that of Cia, too) conflicts with that of Link, Zelda, and what we’ve seen of the world so far. 00EpicGamer00 Yeah, I 100% agree that the design of the character is not really “Zelda like” but more of “your average anime look.” But you should take in consideration that this is just a Zelda spinoff. And not an actual Zelda game. I seriously doubt this character is going to have any relevance in the whole Zelda lore. Or be part of any legit Zelda title. She’s most likely just there to appeal to the Japanese market. Thomas Vienna It’s not so much her clothing as it is her behavior. She’s constantly smiling and winking at the camera; she’s clearly doing that for the men. It just doesn’t make any sense in the Zelda universe I know. Sure, maybe once or twice Nintendo’s done something like this in the past, usually to be charming or comical. It was never quite like this. 00EpicGamer00 You act as if this is the worst thing Nintendo has ever done in a “Zelda game.” First of all, this is a Zelda SPIN OFF. It’s not a legit Zelda game. Second of all, there’s been many sexual things in the Zelda franchise. Like the great fairies from OOT, they’re practically naked aside from leaves covering them (and their…”breast size” aren’t exactly…..yeah). Link himself has been a pervert at times. Minda is actually naked. The list goes on. Look, the point I’m trying to make here, is this Hyrule Warriors game is not an official Zelda game. It’s a spin off. A game where all you do is fight. So, I just don’t see how her clothing and behavior is such a huge problem. Especially since she’s just a character created for this game only. Again, like I said to someone else, I think she’s just there to appeal to the Japanese market. Magnus Eriksson No, I agree. Zelda series have not place for shit like this. Its shameless unfitting. I like your suggestion way better. PrincessKairi Lighten up geez darkcreap Great, great!!! Keep ’em coming!!! WilliamJFlannigan The trailer serves to showcase her unique fighting style, including casting barriers and the wall jump in order to get ahead of enemies. http://tr.im/5nszd disqus_QNIAqtNpHo COOL i love how fluid the combat is Sheldon Williams She seems less like a Zelda character and more like a spunky anime sidekick. I like the barrier creation that seems cool. It’s also reminiscent of something that would be in a Zelda game. Her character though seems very jarring compared to the rest. Hopper200456 Agreed. Squid She kind of looks like she belongs in a Fire Emblem game. Hikingguy I’m not sure how she fits in a Zelda themed game, but I will wait and see. Magnus Eriksson Not pleased at all. Who the fuck is this characther? She clearly doesnt belong to Zelda series at all. The personality they gave her sucked big time too. Jiggling like some manga sexual fantasy. Crap. Epicstuf I’m guessing you haven’t seen hidden innuendos in the Link series. 16BITDAVE gotta try em all! Michael Hancock Looks like Baten Kaitos. Squid The characters design doesn’t look very zelda. But she looks real fun to play as. I want to see Ghirahim, Twinrova, Ralph from oracle of seasons/ages playable! Fuzzylittlebastard Not to fond of her. Its her dress that bothers me, the spunkyness is OK I guess……….. But I think that they should have made her look a lot more Zelda-esque. Leo That looks very…… japanese Ô_o Sylux She seems to be pretty cool. I’ll give her a shot seems like a unique character to play. FutureFox I think Hatsune fell in the wrong game. TULFich She is sooo adorable!!!! steveb944 I like it. Maybe she’ll be a future character in the series as long as people like her.
