New character trailer for Lana in Hyrule Warriors

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?

    I wonder who this Lana person is…. new character in the new Zelda game maybe?

    • Darius

      same here

      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 :P

      • ×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

    • 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.

    • http://youtube.com/TheHopper2004 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

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ 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.
