    It will be a travesty if Groose doesn’t make the cut.

      It wouldn’t be a good game if Groose isn’t in it.

      • http://facebook.com/validgraphics val berger

        applies to all games without groose.

        • Fred

          Sure that means the only 2 existing good games ever made are Wind Waker and Wind Waker HD

          • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

            Personally I found Wind Waker to be the weakest of the 3D Zeldas.

          • CydeFxt

            I’d take Wind Waker over Majoras Mask.

          • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

            Go ahead, no one is stopping you.

          • CydeFxt

            Damn right

          • http://facebook.com/validgraphics val berger

            For me, Twilight Princess was the worst 3D zelda game, but WW also had some major flaws. Still, playing WWHD is quite fun.

          • Fred

            Not me, I love wind waker, I’d say twilight princess is the weakest 3D Zelda

          • Sdudyoy

            Groose wasn’t in Wind waker, he was in Skyward sword.

          • http://facebook.com/validgraphics val berger

            groose didn’t appear in either of these games. guess again :)

      • Jared Lytle

        No one understands my hate for groose T.T

        • Nintendo Of North Korea

          I do, I do…

    • Arale Norimaki

      Groose needs to be lose in the world of Hyrule warriors

  • http://www.facebook.com/LilMajerTheCartune Cartune

    I guess this is cooland all but I don’t understand why all these unnecessary characters are in this game, but ehh, the more the merrier I guess. *shrugs*

  • Decker Shado

    Now I’m imagining a 2 player co-op with Zelda and Sheik… and then the universe being torn apart.

    • http://gameknights-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ abe

      i’m guessing since there some time tearing magic involved Sheik is princess zelda from OoT and “zelda” will be hyrule warriors’ Queen Zelda

    • Yuuki

      Especially if Zelda gets an OoT DLC costume

  • Christian Schoff

    I wanted Ruto but the character I want more than any other is Majora Link.

  • jjbredesen

    I am back internet :D

    Dam sheik looks good, i am starting to get really hyped for this game, great rooster of characters and it looks like they have added a bit more puzzle elements to the boring hack and slash dynasty warrior style.

    • http://gameknights-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ abe

      seem at the very least the game has added boss fights that require “Z-Targeting” fights

    • Officer Raichu

      welcome jj playing on a new console :P

      • jjbredesen

        Thanks, i am was going to buy a PS4, but my phone exploded, so now i need to use the money on that >_<

        • Rinslowe

          It didn’t happen by trying to get Meego Harmattan to work was it? I would feel partially guilty for that one.

          • jjbredesen

            Luckily no xD, the cobber wires that are in the micro usb charging port burned out, so i think it was a charger malfunction, as the entire circuit board looks burned…

          • Rinslowe

            Well I guess that happens. It was Korean after all…

          • jjbredesen

            mmm

          • Rinslowe

            Haha.
            :)

    • companyoflosers

      tingle is that one thing from zelda games that never should have been created. hes creepy, hes irrelevant and unimportant. i dont get people’s affection for him at all.

      • DoctorWily

        Creepy, yes. Irrelevant? I don’t know. I have purchased quite a few maps from him….

        • Rinslowe

          Better the devil you know…

          • Michael Hancock

            I’m better at Mario Kart now and am tired of racing random Chilean racers. Can I get a match?

          • Rinslowe

            Sure thing. I just finished a session didn’t see ya..

        • companyoflosers

          Doesnt make him a vital character. Thats a role just about anyone could fill.

      • jjbredesen

        As DoctorWilly said, he is creep, but he does have an important role :P

        • companyoflosers

          So far the most important thing hes done is give you maps, a role he doesnt HAVE to fullfill. Nintendo just stuck him there. There are plenty other characters who could fill that roll and if not them, nintendo could always write a new character for it. Theres nothing that says “only tingle can know maps”.

          • jjbredesen

            I know, but he is funny and a icon of….well i donno but it would not be Zelda without him, he has no purpose, but thats the reason we like him.

          • KartSmash

            Older Zelda fans hate tingle, the ones who started off around 64-GameCube era tend to be more fond of him in my experience. I used to hate him in the original, after playing it again in HD I didn’t mind him as much as I used to though. In my experience that’s also the fanbase that thinks majoras mask is the best, and mario sunshine is better than mario 64. Not making fun of anyone, just stating my experience of friends and people online as well that I’ve talked to.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, I would agree with you, as a person who started of with N64, i would agree, i love Sunshine, but i am not sure i would call it better than 64, as for Majoras Mask i think it is better than OOT.

            In Windwaker I did hate him, but i have come to like him, still think he is annoying, but i like his creepy character xD

    • Rinslowe

      You’re looking healthy… mostly….
      :)

      • jjbredesen

        haha, good to by back, or atleast for today xD its summer festival season, don’t have time for the internet :(

        • Rinslowe

          That’s a good thing!

          • jjbredesen

            Well getting drunk at 15 is perhaps not that good, but your only young once!

          • Rinslowe

            I was actually referring to having no time for the internet lol. But true point.

          • KartSmash

            Drugs are bad

        • KartSmash

          summer festival season as in like music festivals? if so which ones are you going to? if not then never mind lol.

  • http://gameknights-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ abe

    i suspect Sheik and Queen Zelda arn’t the same person. there appears to be Time bending in this with Twlight, Skyward, Majora charaters and stuff appearing together. I would imagine Shiek, Darunia, anad Princess Ruto have been pulled from their own time

    • Sdudyoy

      Yeah, that’s what I was thinking.

  • Kobe

    I really want Tingle, whether he’s cartoons or realistic

    • http://gameknights-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ abe

      Realistic Tingle haunts my dreams!

      • Sdudyoy

        Dreams? I think you mean nightmares.

        • http://gameknights-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ abe

          they start as normal dreams… then he appears… then they become nightmares

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Actually, there’s allot of people that think Purlo (the star game guy from Twilight Princess) is Nintendo’s adaptation of what a “realistic” Tingle looks like. It’s not too scary looking, lol.
            http://zeldawiki.org/images/thumb/a/a0/Purlo.png/130px-Purlo.png

          • majora :D

            Think? It was confirmed by Aonuma!

    • jjbredesen

      Realistic tingle? I will never sleep again!

      • http://obaforums.wordpress.com DragonSilths

        Realistic Re-Dead…..mwahahaha. Even that wouldnt assist me in getting this junk game though.

  • Fred

    I wonder how they’ll work this? You can play this game in co-op, so what if player 1 chooses Zelda and player 2 chooses Sheik?

    • http://gameknights-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ abe

      think it’s Zelda – Queen Zelda of Hyrule Warriors, Sheik – Princess Zelda of Ocarina of Time

      • Fred

        Now that I think about it, you’re probably right

  • Lusunup

    We need more girls in this game! there’s not enough!!!

    • Nathan C.

      This game is sexist. Where are all the dudes? lol

      • 00EpicGamer00

        Just pretend that Sheik is a dude. :P

        • majora :D

          Who is Darunia?

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          Sheik is Zelda

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Oh really!? Thank you for telling me something I already knew. What part of “PRETEND that Sheik is a dude” did you not understand?

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Oh SHUT UP!!

  • Sdudyoy

    Sheik, it’s a bit odd that you can be Zelda and Sheik, I wonder if they will be different people in this game?

    • http://gameknights-uk.blogspot.co.uk/ abe

      yeah i think Queen Zelda will be the Zelda native to the Hyrule Warriors timeline. Shiek (with Darunia, and Princess Ruto) will be pulled from the OoT timeline

    • Assassinated23

      Tell that to Smash Bros.

      • Sdudyoy

        Smash bros isn’t a story based game, you can have four Link’s fighting each other in the Mushroom kingdom.

        • majora :D

          Neither is the Dynasty Warriors series.

  • Lusunup

    In all honesty I think we might get Talo the kid with the stick as a weapon. He’ll be the Next masamune date of Hyrule warriors http://dw3girl.deviantart.com/art/Date-Masamune-7172485

  • CydeFxt

    Oh…..joy, more female characters.

  • Nintendoro

    This is looking better and better. Hope it’ll push Wii U sales further more

    • Yuuki

      I bought my Wii U just for this,and Smash.

  • Phaz0n

    How many playable characters does that bring us to now?

    • Yuuki

      10

      • Phaz0n

        Thanks for the reply!

        • Yuuki

          Sure! I’m happy it’s been proved that we’re getting more than just 9 characters!

  • Yuuki

    Okay,I just need Tingle,and Ganondorf,and this will be the game of my dreams!

  • Sheik

    YAAASSS!!! SHEIK!!! JUST WHAT I WANTED!!! <3

  • Perryfan74

    LET LOOSE THE GROOSE!!!

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    SHEIK!!!

  • classicgamer20

    Fuck yea Darunia. He’s always been one of my favorite Zelda Characters I really hope one of his attacks is the Darunia dance

  • Potemkin

    Jesus, everywhere I go all I find is the low resolution scan…

  • Ben English

    Wait, when was Ghirahim confirmed as playable? As far as I know there are no villains confirmed playable yet, though it’s likely.

  • Nookling

    Ghirahim wasn’t confirmed playable so…

    • Ninty The Rage Kid

      (•_•)

      ( •_•)>⌐■-■

      (⌐■_■)

      Deal with it.

  • Squid

    If those two can make it in Groose could. And I think one of Darunia’s specials will be his dance

    • Merry_Blind

      hahaha he HAS TO make his dance!

  • Spike Ashford

    SHEIK!! SHEIK!!!!! MAI WAIFU!!!!!!!!

    *Ahem*

    I’ll hold the fangasm ’till I play the game…. Oh, who am I kidding?

    SHEIK AND MINDA IN THE SAME GAME!!!!

  • LadyCricket

    *crosses fingers* Nabooru, Nabooru, Nabooru…

  • Tsijiari

    Ruto?
    dont see what she could do besides swimming. If they want girls there are many others like the kinght from twilight princess or the witch from oracle of seasons

    as for boys,mm, dont know many important ones, but maybe kafei and that red hair guy from the oracle of ages could fit

  • C.S. Bailey

    I’m going to be broke for the holidays……

  • Chris Cole

    I would like to see Shulk and the Monado from Xenoblade Chronicles

    • Merry_Blind

      Is that a joke?

  • Epicstuf

    GIMME GROOSE< DAMMIT!

  • CJSaikoro7493

    I see Sheik on the blurry page screens but not Darunia or Ruto. Is it confirmed in text?

  • ben

    I love Zelda and I love Dynasty warriors… THis game is making me so happy.
    Looks beautiful..

    The 14th of August can’t come soon enough.
