Yesterday we reported on a leak from Famitsu that stated that Agitha and Lana would be playable characters in the upcoming Hyrule Warriors game. The leak comes directly from Famitsu insiders, so there’s no scans of the pages yet, but these characters have been confirmed. Agitha is from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and uses a parasol to fight.
Lana is an original character for the series and is a witch who wields a book of magic in battle and can create barriers in order to brush away enemies. Once the barrier is broken, it deals Lana damage. Another aspect revealed was certain strengthening items can be used to bring the moon from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask as an attack. Additionally, it’s been revealed that Link’s Hook Shot will also be an available weapon.
Expect more information as Hyrule Warriors releases in August in Japan, while both Europe and North America have to wait until September.
