Hyrule Warriors to include more Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time characters
More developments come to us from this week?s issue of Famitsu, a Japan-based video game magazine. This time, they are announcing that three characters from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time are coming to Hyrule Warriors, a hotly anticipated game for the Nintendo Wii U. The new playable characters from the Nintendo 64 classic to appear on the game are Princess Ruto, Shiek, and Darunia.
Hyrule Warriors is a spin-off of the Legend of Zelda series. This time, the upcoming game will allow players to come to the world of Hyrule once again and enjoy a more Dynasty Warriors-ish, combat-loaded, hack-and-slash gameplay. The three characters originally appeared in The Ocarina of Time, a 1988 game for the Nintendo 64 console.
Shiek?s arrival in Hyrule Warriors is quite interesting. Similar to Ocarina of Time, Sheik will still be Princess Zelda?s alter-ego disguise. He has been seen as a playable character in the Super Smash Bros franchise beginning from 2001?s Super Smash Bros Melee. Darunia is Goron?s leader, a mountain-dwelling race. He eventually became a Fire Sage in Hyrule; becoming one of the few males to ever achieve the said feat. ?Meanwhile, Ruto is a headstrong princess of the ocean-dwelling Zora people. She was once temporarily engaged to Link, another Zelda character in the game.
As of now, no Hyrule Warriors trailer is released to show these new characters in action. All we know at present came from Famitsu; given the frequency of character reveals for the game, we ?can expect more details to be released soon. The arrival of Sheik, Darunia and Princess Ruto brings the total number of Legend of Zelda characters present in Hyrule Warriors to 10. Other previously announced characters are Zelda, Link, Midna, Lana, Impa, Fi, and Agitha.
After it?s Japanese release this August, Hyrule Warriors will land on European and North American shores on September 19 and 26, respectively. All versions will exclusively be available for the Nintendo Wii U console.
