This thread is for discussion of the The Legend of Zelda series and Dynasty Warriors collab spin-off, Hyrule Warriors. I created it in an attempt to keep the General Zelda thread from being buffeted with too many spoiler-tagged posts (official reveals, such as the official trailers, will probably still be cross-posted there though).

Much of the game was already discussed in the General Zelda thread, but feel free to discuss anything about the game (or continue discussions brought up in the General thread). Since the game's released in Japan already (and will be released soon elsewhere), expect spoilers to be occasionally unmarked.

To start off, for the unfamiliar, here's the official English video playlist for Hyrule Warriors (and here's the full playlist for Koei Tecmo's videos). Start from the bottom of them if you're looking to follow the videos in the order they were released.

I will start things off with this. Gamexplain has the first 7 or so stages played and on their youtube channel. Warning it contains commentary (some people don't like that stuff).

So just a question: Do we have any screenshots of Ganon? The character page has filled stuff up on him, so I want to know how he looks.

Homunculi naturally drive like crazy.

Nothing high quality yet. I can link you the video of where he shows up though. Warning spoilers and bad quality.

Seems they plan to continue supporting the game with DLC characters, weapons, and scenarios.

[up][up]Hopefully this means fan favorites like Groose will become available later down the line.

I watched a couple of those Gamexplain videos, but all it did was make me want the game even more... sad

As expected. I always assumed the villains wouldn't really be playable in the main scenario anyway.

So that's how Zant, Ghirahim, and Ganondorf are playable.

I wonder if that includes the other 3 OC villains. Probably.

Besides that, I wonder who else might be available. I can't think of anyone humanoid from the actual notable bosses/characters... I mean, there's Mooks and all like Stalfos Knight, but...

Gamexplain gives you an hour of nothing but Hyrule Warriors must here and here. Personally like the Skyloft theme. Even if you hate the Warriors series, you have to admit that Koei did the music of the series justice.

Ah man, that music... So beautiful... I probably won't listen to everything in those videos, but its nice that they did this.

In other news, Aonuma and staff talk about Hyrule Warriors's development.

They dont even pretend to try and hide Sheik's true identity in this one [lol]

I hope the Cia and Valga DLC comes quickly, I wanna breathe fire on peons as quickly as possible.

Well, you've got Vaati, Veran, and Onox, at least. Demise, too, if they're so inclined.

GameXplain is doing another Live Stream of Hyrule Warriors which starts in 20 minutes.

They will upload each level to Youtube.

So Remnant Of Twilight and Silent Guardians is probably almost up there with the Skyloft remix as my favorite tracks in the game.

And here's Eclipse of the Moon. Soo awesome. There's even a second version of this song that is just as awesome but it hasn't been uploaded yet.

Edit:And now it has. I give you, Eclipse the Moon GT.
