Video: Watch Us Gleefully Bust Some Skulls In Hyrule Warriors

Posted by Damien McFerran

So much carnage

Hyrule Warriors is a unique title in that it takes two very popular franchises — Zelda and Dynasty Warriors — and combines them to create a game which should in theory appeal to two very different fanbases.

We've got a more detailed hands-on preview going up on the site soon, but in the meantime here's some off-screen footage taken at Nintendo's recent post-E3 event in the UK. Is this title shaping up as you expected? Let us know with a comment.

I've only ever played the Vita Warriors game, and found it spectacularly dull after about an hour.

But this looks beautiful. Will watch reviews with great interest.

Can't wait for this but I will be waiting for reviews and possibly getting Bayonetta first. I wish Ubisoft were publishing because I could get them all for £20 by Xmas!

This game would be the first time I'll be playing as link the least in a zelda game. But thats probably cause it'll be the first time I'd get to play as anyone besides link in a zelda game. Anyways he's definitely my least favorite out out all the characters shown so far.

You know as great as the graphics look on this I think the new Zelda U looks so much better. Maybe realistic graphics are a thing of the past for me. That Zelda U is so pretty!!

@Spoony_Tech - "Maybe realistic graphics are a thing of the past for me. That Zelda U is so pretty!!"

I know what you mean. I'm about 3 hours into WW HD and thinking it looks really good, Zelda U is going to look so much better. but I'm also 2 hours into Tomb Raider on PS3, and thinking how incredible that looks, and how great it would be to actually get a Zelda game looking like that. (Really the Wii U should be able to better PS3 graphics, it's a 7 year old system.)

But then I think, well maybe not. So now I'm torn. Not that I have any say in the matter. This looks great though after 3 DW Gundam games on PS3.

Will probably mostly play this 2 player so it may be a non-issue, but any chance you can get get the map off the tv and onto the Gamepad? If I were making any DW type game for Wii U that would have been the first thing I did.

Forgive my unfamiliarity with Dynasty Warriors but from the game play I am reminded of a LOZ version of No More Heroes. If I am right, I will be losing many an hour to this title.

The fact that this game has asynchronous multiplayer definitely has near the top of my wishlist. Local co-op should be a pretty good time!
