Hyrule Warriors Newcomer Lana, The White Witch, Revealed

By Sato . June 24, 2014 . 3:15am


Earlier today, we reported two new characters who’ll be in Hyrule Warriors, with Agitha from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and an unknown character by the name of Lana. Game Jouhou updated their report with a few more details on Lana, and more.


According to this week’s Famitsu issue, Lana the White Witch is an original character for Hyrule Warriors, who fights using some sort of magical book by creating walls to blow away enemies. The walls can also be destroyed, causing a shock that damages enemies, as well.


Additionally, it has been revealed that Hyrule Warriors also has the iconic Hookshot item or weapon, which can be used to reach areas that can’t normally be reached. As previously reported, the moon from Majora’s Mask is in the game, and it’s actually an attack from an enhanced item.


The update in the Game Jouhou report also indicates that Agitha fights with a parasol as a weapon, along with attacks that summons bugs.


Hyrule Warriors will be released on August 14 in Japan, September 20 in Europe, and September 26 in North America. You can also, check out Impa and her gigantic long sword in action, here.

  • David García Abril

    Is that the girl in the cover?

    • Chris Evan Jonance Ingeniero

      i think so~ since her weapon as described here is a “book”

  • Namuro

    Oh joy, can’t wait to play as Agitha!

    I’m gonna drown Hyrule with my army of lovely bugs…

    Now, our insect friends will be everywhere. We won’t be lonely anymore…

    Eh he he he he…

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    I hope you don’t just play the heroes. I wanna fight a thousand enemies as Zant.

    • Zant was announced -_-

      • Wappuli

        He was only confirmed for being in the game, nothing about being playable.

        • doubleO7

          But this is a Warriors game. Villains are always playable. I don’t see why they would change that for this one.

          • Gojira Twit

            No, villains are not always playable. See Kaizoku Musou 1 and Hokuto Musou 1

          • doubleO7

            Perhaps I should have said “almost always”. Those two being the only exceptions, as far as I can remember. This was rectified for the sequels though. I guess you could just call it a hunch, but I don’t think they’ll wait for Zelda Musou 2 to make villains playable.

          • Scrooge_McDuck

            There were also five unplayable unique characters in Sengoku Musou, two in Sengoku Musou 2 and two in Sengoku Musou 3,

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        Yeah, in SOME form, not THE form we want yet.

  • wahyudil

    no photos?

  • Jadfish

    It’s wierd how they are already coming up with original characters. The Zelda universe has at least 10 more potential characters left that could be used

    • James Robert Thompson

      They’re probably also playable, but for the purposes of giving some direction to the plot they probably need some new characters, like Lana and Shia.

      • Akimitsu

        I’m also sure that they’re not going to reveal every single playable character (although I could be mistaken). Hopefully, they keep some characters hidden.

        • Gojira Twit

          What makes you so sure? I’ve never heard of a Musou game where Koei didn’t show off every single character before releasing the game.

    • Kalis Konig

      This game has it’s own original story. It would be odd to not have original characters. If Agitha is in I am pretty sure most of the obvious choices are in as well anyways.

    • GH56734


    • Hinataharem

      If this is like other Warriors titles, “10 more” is the least of your worries. I expect at least 30 characters in this game.

      • Jadfish

        well most Warriors games start out slow in the first game, then gradually rack up the numbers through sequels

  • Ixbran

    Mini Scan for those interested ~

    • Tonton Ramos

      damn you beat me to it

    • Slayven19

      She looks pretty good.

    • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

      I like her design. If I was near a Japanese Book Store I would try to obtain a copy.

    • buhyA

      Can you make a bigger scan please?
      One where you can read the words?

    • Chaos_Knight

      Lana looks like J-Pop idol…which i find very cute.

    • Kornelious

      They are just to cute not to love <3

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      .making the women to cute and pretty A+. Nintendo should totally put Lana in Zelda-U

    • Kaetsu

      As you can see these characters were created before Team Ninja joined the development team.

      • Ixbran

        Team Ninja have been involved with the games development since the beginning. And even then, their only involved with the games gameplay, not character designs. Team Ninja helped with the development of items, how their used against enemies, bosses, and against common enemies, as well as the boss killing animations.

        Koei is doing everything else, including character designs. Also, let’s not forget that Eiji Aonuma is supervising this games development, meaning nothing was going to get in without his approval. That includes Cia large exposed chest.

        • Kaetsu

          I know it’s just a joke. I actually really like Team Ninja and I’m glad to see that they’re working on this game.

    • David García Abril

      Now that I think about it, this makes 5 females characters to 1 male character. 6 if we count Cia.

      Is it just me or this starts to look like a harem? lol

  • pekikuubik

    More like Hyrule Waifus already.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • Oh, poor Maple. She was completely forgotten by Nintendo and replaced by a newcomer Witch. http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Maple

    (Also, we’re already so desperate for Zelda characters we’re using Agitha? What about SHIEK??? Gorons? Zoras?)

  • Kevin Lima Ferreira

    Now they should announce Saria, Ruto, Darunia, Rauru, Nabooru, Malon, Mido, Kafei, Link The Goron and many others as playable character as well.

  • So much to my hopes for Malon with a hay fork… leave it to Tecmo Koei, Nintendo and Team Ninja to get a badass bug catcher but my badass Malon/Marin? Nope~ (at least for now) xD

  • Anna Scruton

    So, Agitha will play like Okuni? friggin awesome.

  • Agitha fights with a parasol? Remind me of Polka from Eternal Sonata. That game was awesome.

    • Strawberry Starlet


      • Thanks. I’ve edited my post. I can’t believe I forgot her name. ^_^;

  • Chaos_Knight

    Oh, I just remembered that I saw a girl that looked like Lana in the teaser video.

    She’s on the top right corner. She was there from the very start.

  • Kornelious

    Huh there goes the Bug net guesses for Agitha’s weapon :P

    Lana being a new addition to the Zelda roster is pretty cool, and definently my type of girl…….Really need to stop saying this stuff out loud XD

  • Mental

    I assumed Agitha would have a parasol for a weapon and I was right. Huh.

  • Brimfyre

    Maybe it’s the gaming drought, as I don’t typically like games like this, but hot diggity damn I am so excited for this game.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething
    • Scissors

      I forgot about her. It’s a shame she wasn’t a bigger part of the story, her character design was so cool.

    • DeadLineDance

      Oh dang, yeah. If they were going to add a barely-there NPC from Twilight Princess, it should have been her.

  • Needs (more) playable Villains.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      like….Twin nova?

      • God

        Vati, nuff said.

      • Twinrova, you mean. And yes, that’s one example.

  • Ying

    So is Lana the blue haired girl on the cover? If it is then there goes the “she is non-corrupted Cia” theory.

  • grayson gee

    Litterally all the female character’s names end in A.


    • Learii

      lol who else end an A

    • Lilburrito

      Malon :D

      • KazukiNanbu

        Malon-a…ok that’s stupid

    • God

      We are missing Saria, Nintendo needs to fix that.

  • Vash bane

    …the bug girl is playable o.O (memory is fuzzy about the npc’s of that game)

  • Ultimaniacx4

    Crossing my fingers for Groose.

  • KoRLumen

    Lana(yru), perhaps?

  • Ahh, the parasol. Of course. Makes sense~!

  • E.T.993

    Already saw the hookshot during the Threehouse gameplay.

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    This game is going to be AWESOME!
