Even More Hyrule Warriors Details

Link, Hyrule Warriors, Wii U

Hyrule Warriors will have a local multiplayer mode according to the latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu. The article, translated by Siliconera, tells us that one player can play via the TV screen while the second player uses the Wii U Gamepad.

Impa has also now been confirmed as a playable character with others yet to be revealed. Impa will act as leader of the Elite Guard and will fight using a long sword.

There seems to be a decent amount of depth to the combat system, equipping different weapons will alter a character’s fighting style, for example one-handed swords will allow quicker movement but heavier weapons will inflict more damage. Characters and weapons can also be upgraded as you progress through the game.

In addition several classic features of the Zelda series will be prominent, such as the Spin Attack, bombs and Z-targeting which lets you dodge attacks and target enemy weak points.

The game is 70% of the way through development and will be playable at E3. As we revealed yesterday the game will be available in Japan on August 14th.

Check out the screenshot gallery below for several new images courtesy of Famitsu, including what is most likely the villain of the game – the witch Shia.
