Check out Zelda’s character trailer for Hyrule Warriors

During our preview of Hyrule Warriors at E3, we played as Zelda to give you an idea of some of her special abilities, since most of the people who played the demo chose to play as Link. Of course she wields her famous bow, but she also has a few tricks up her sleeve. Tecmo Koei have released a new trailer that gives a better look at Zelda up close and personal.

This is just one of the many trailers Tecmo Koei is releasing in order to promote Hyrule Warriors, which will be hitting Japan in August and North America and Europe in September. Expect more character trailers soon, especially after the Famitsu character reveal this week, showcasing Agitha from Twilight Princess and Lana, a brand new original character.

    I’ve said this before but this is probably my favourite Zelda design, that includes the main series and any other spin-off.

    • MerryBlind .

      So far I’m really digging the character designs in Hyrule Warriors. While Impa looks really different from her OoT days, her design is nonetheless amazing.

  • SilentBates

    This game is just to amazing for words. Granted it’s the simplicity with the dynasty warriors series but also mixes in the complexity of Zelda, making a truly unique experience that’s definitely worth everyone’s time to try out.

  • Superstick98

    Lol, I find it funny how they exposed a bit of sideboob on Zelda. xD

    • Capt. Smoker

      Nintendo again, out of date, out of touch with youngsters, EVERYONE knows it’s all about underboob now

      • MarkyWiiU

        Pfff… Top boobs are OVER 9000 times more appealing.

  • Daniel Carvalho

    Again, she is the Queen Zelda on this game, not princess. It’s written both in the trailer (in Japanese, though) and on a recent interview given by Aonuma on the matter.

    • MerryBlind .

      “Queen” Zelda? That’s actually pretty cool…

    • jjbredesen

      Yup, and she now is the leader of the hyrulian army. Nice to see that she finally has become a queen.

      She looks dam good to 😀 I am starting to like the art style now.

    • Capt. Smoker

      It’s about time, been years since I last saw a king, he musta snuffed it *sigh*

  • PhoebeCDonmoyer

    Of course she wields her famous bow, but she also has a few tricks up her sleeve. Tecmo Koei have released a new trailer that gives a better look at Zelda up close and personal.

  • Daniel

    My gawd, she’s beautiful. Thats my fantasy wife right there haha game looks great though. Already pre-ordered along with smash bros for 3DS/Wii U and Pokemon omega ruby!:) great games coming up!!!

  • Jack5221

    This game looks like fun and all, but it just seems too easy. Like the skeletons are posing little to no threat at all while Zelda just steam rolls through all 9 million of them. Lol.

    • uPadWatcher

      There’s more to it than “just seems too easy”. It’s called “DIFFICULTY”.

    • Chris Orr

      I wouldn’t be surprised if for a “character” trailer that’s showcasing move, that they played it on the easiest difficulty

    • MerryBlind .

      Yeah I hope it has difficulty settings with smarter and more aggressive a.i.

      • crocodileman94

        Since all Musou games have had it so far, I’m sure this one will too.

        • MerryBlind .

          Well I’ve never really played a Dynasty Warriors game before so I don’t know… On the hardest difficulty setting, are the ennemies actually smarter and less passive? Or do they just have more HP and do more damage?

          • Einscengi

            Smarter, more aggressive, more HP, more defense, more speed. Pretty much more of everything.

            Edit – Well, smarter when it comes to the captains. Minions, not so much.

          • MerryBlind .

            mhmh… sounds good then. I’ll look up some gameplay videos of the most recent one before pre-ordering this one. It actually looks pretty damn good, I’m just being cautious because I’ve always thought Dynasty Warriors weren’t really ‘good’ games…


    • firedragonsage88

      In Dynasty Warriors the aggressiveness of the AI depends on how high team morale is. So if the enemy morale is low (where you want to get it) the minions will often stand around in fear of attacking. When it’s just minions standing around they give you a chance to fill your Musou gauge.
      Officers are the units that pose more of a threat, actively attacking you. Large groups of minions when fighting officers can be annoying as they will attack you, cancelling your combos and leaving you open to heavy hits from the officer.

      And as others have said, there are difficulty settings. Anyway this message is really long. I just wanted to clarify a little.

  • uPadWatcher

    Queen Zelda looks so beautiful. Omega Force and Team NINJA have done an outstanding job at her ultra sexy look.

    • Joseph Oliveira

      Princess Zelda*****

  • Rinslowe

    I do like the character models/ art in this game. For the most part. We can put our fears to rest that all female characters well be over sexualised…
    I’m thinking I have to invest in this game more and more. Yeah.

    • Daniel Carvalho

      I wouldn’t say they’re “overly” sexualized. Female characters are indeed sexier than they are on Zelda’s main series, specially their more revealing clothes, but nothing outstanding. Overall, I’m happy with the design they went for.

      • Rinslowe

        That was my point. But really just in reference to one character in particular shown before E3. Since then, most other characters look to be well designed, well thought out and on the level. With quite nice character models to show for it…

      • abe

        I’m not even sure that’s true, remember the great fairy in OoT? She was naked bar a few leafs.

        • Daniel Carvalho

          Well, she was naked by a few leaves on the original Ocarina of Time as well…

    • Capt. Smoker

      You had fears?, am I the only one who wanted to be playing as Zelda half naked?, that’s what mens dreams are made of, ah well, can’t complain :p I love the design, hoping it’ll take me back to the Wii days of Muramassa were I took the female lead and got turned on every 5 minutes 😀

      • Einscengi

        Don’t forget, there could always be alternate and DLC costumes. #KeepHopeAlive

      • Rinslowe


  • Nathan C.

    SHE’S SO HOT!! *starts fanboying*

  • MarkyWiiU

    Correct me if I’m wrong but. There’s now 1 male playable character ( Link) and 4 female playable characters ( Zelda, Midna, Aghita and Lana ) so unless they want females to dominate the game, they have to add male characters… TINGLE!!!

    • 00EpicGamer00

      If they add Tingle, then there’ll be 5 female characters. 😉
      Also, what’s wrong with females? I think it’s great that Nintendo is allowing allot of female characters to be playable. Beside’s I’m sure Nintendo is going to announce some male characters too. Like Ganondorf maybe. Or…a Goron, lol. You know, if Gorons are an “all male race” then how do they reproduce? O.o

      • Nintendo Of North Korea

        What about that one elder goron, the one looked like a woman. I’m sure there was a couple of females, they just weren’t very popular as the majority of the males are fabulous.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          But I thought one of the games specifically said that the Gorons are an all male race? Didn’t they say that in Twilight Princess? I haven’t played that game in a while so I might be wrong on that.

      • MarkyWiiU

        First of all I have no problem with female characters. So far they all look awesome! Second, I like the 2 characters you suggested. I would love to use Ganondorf but: WITH HIS SWORD 😀 ! And finally,I didn’t know Tingle was a female… She/He has a mustache AND a goatee! XD

        • 00EpicGamer00

          No, Tingle is a male, I was just making a joke. I bet the Ganondorf Nintendo will use to is the one from Smash Bros. Brawl, lol. The Captain Falcon clone version. XD

          Also, (I can’t believe I forgot about this character) Ghirahim would also be a good edition. Honestly though, after thinking about it. There isn’t very many “important” male characters in the Zelda franchise. There’s more female than male. I mean, every single “friend” of Link’s is always female, you ever noticed that? In Ocarina of Time Saria is his friend. In Twilight Princess Lila is his friend. In Skyward Sword Zelda is his friend, lol. I find it odd Link has never had a male friend. Or a male “helper” either.

          • MarkyWiiU

            Yeah I noticed that. The only ”helper” if you actually consider him as one is The Purple Bunny Guy (Don’t remember his real name) in Between Worlds wich strongly resembles Nabit.

      • Joseph Oliveira

        Dafuq? Tingle isn’t a female.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Something tells me you didn’t read my other post down there (my other response to that person). And I also see you obviously can’t take a joke. Lighten up, buddy.

    • Einscengi

      Tingle, Tingle, Kooloo-Limpa!

    • MerryBlind .

      I just want Skull Kid… I was really hoping for him to be playable in Smash Bros…… being able to play as him in Hyrule Warriors would be redemption!

  • Capt. Smoker

    :O kawaiiii!! sugoiiiii!! Zelda dai suki! <3

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Her character design is quite lovely. 🙂

  • Ian Settlemyer

    Maybe Marth and Pit will be in the game?

    • MetroidZero

      And Kirby, and C. Falcon, and Fox, and Game & Watch, and Mario, and…

      • MarkyWiiU

        Don’t forget Villager and Wii Fit Trainer!

        • MerryBlind .

          What about Mega-Man and Pac-Man? I think they would fit right in!

          • MarkyWiiU

            How about the guy in God of War?

  • kevin nun—-

    So… much.. flash


    Team Ninja wanted Zelda with a bigger bust……smh

  • She’ll be my favorite character, followed by Midna I suppose 🙂

  • Earthworm Jim

    Am I the only one hoping for Toon Link?

  • Joseph Oliveira

    Looks fun. But not a big Dynasty Warriors fan; it becomes so repetitive! That being said, I want that Triforce Clock!

  • Dylan Groot

    This is gonna be a 6.5 out of 10 game, just like all the other Dynasty Warriors games.
