Hyrule Warriors brings characters from the long running Legend of Zelda series together for a Dynasty Warriors style hack and slash game. Lana the White Witch is a new character made for the Wii U game. She uses a magic book that creates walls and conjures the elements.

Many characters from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess are in Hyrule Warriors too. Midna and Agitha are playable characters. New Hyrule Warriors screenshots show the menacing moon from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Midna using the hookshot. Zant and the Argorok from Twilight Princess appear as enemies in Hyrule Warriors.

    Agitha’s been lining her pockets with endless rupees and bug swarms in preparation for this moment. Underestimating this little lady is underestimating one of Hyrule’s greatest.

    • GoldLiger(Bijuu no Sennin)

      That joke would be funny if it weren’t for the fact that there is no King of Hyrule in this version of Hyrule. There is only the Queen Zelda.

      • Prinnydoom

        And if he were in it, considering he’s zelda’s dad and she is “Queen” Zelda, that be pretty messed up >__<

  • Egil

    I think i’m in love with Lana’s design….. Is it because she reminds me of aqua of kingdom heart?

  • XypherCode

    Looking at Lana’s design I’d say she’d fit perfectly in an actual Dynasty Warriors game.

    • Namuro

      Yeah, I think so too. In fact, she almost doesn’t seem to fit in the Zelda universe, despite being created specifically for the game…

  • http://people.ign.com/rob1610 rob1610

    I want video footage of Lana and Agitha in action. Screenshots just don’t cut it.

  • Ixbran
    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      I hope these renders are for playable characters and the demo roster slot will go beyond 9 characters.

      • celery

        If the villains are playable (which I’m really hoping they are) then we technically already have 10 characters once you include Zant, Cia, Valga, and Wizzro.

        • doubleO7

          Possibly 11, if you count Ganondorf’s tease at the end of the E3 trailer.

        • Stephen Mc Devitt

          Or perhaps the game will have far more than 10 for fanservice-value.

          • celery

            I’m definitely hoping so! Maybe not as much as your average DW game because that would be quite a big leap in terms of a Zelda game, but I’m seriously hoping for at least 20. There are plenty of great characters in the franchise to choose from, after all!

    • J_Joestar

      so HNNNNGGG

  • Namuro

    Ahh… Agitha is still as cute as ever! And you just gotta love Midna’s smirk as well.

    Speaking of which, I can’t believe how many people still call “Midna” as “Minda”…

    • Linhua

      … wow… I never even knew that name was floating around… XD

    • Daniel

      Who the hell is Minda???!!!

  • TrueDefault

    Lana is such a cutie! I am still on the fence about buying it. According to some rumours, this game only has around 9 playable characters. That doesn’t sound as many as I’d like.

    • pekikuubik

      Every character seems to have several weapon sets. Also, there are DLC costumes.

      Quality with variety over quantity.

    • Ixbran

      Eiji Aonuma has gone on record saying there will be a total of “52 play styles” and that the games cast will have an equal male to female playable character ratio. So yea, the game is obviously going to have more than just 9 characters.

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        Oh thank goodness. I really wanna play Zant.

        • BleuVII

          You can keep your Zant. I want to play as Vaati!

          • celery

            What about both? ;u;

          • BleuVII

            Okay. You’ve convinced me. :)

      • TrueDefault

        Really?!! Then I’m definitely getting it! I was worrying for nothing then!

        • Alexander Marquis Starkey

          As you can see, he is mistaken. That said, that rumor is pretty much disproven. The roster his half female, which means the other half is male. Between all of the girls, one being a rather out of no where add, we are in no way stoping at 9, and with the reveals being two characters at a time, and reveals being bi-weekly, we’d see all of the characters revealed by the end of next month. Character reveals in the warriors games usually go til just before the game releases, so we are due a lot more.

      • Muffum

        No, he hasn’t. When talking about how many players can play at the same time, he mentioned “dou ji ni,” meaning at the same time. People misheard this as “go ju ni,” 52, and thought that he misinterpreted the question as the number of playable characters.

        So really, he hasn’t said anything about number of playable characters or play styles besides it being “a lot,” which could mean anything.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        That 52 characters thing was picked out of in interview and in Engrish. I don’t trust that number as that is too damn many for the 1st game.

  • MrJechgo

    Midna pulling the moon down with a hook shot = WIN!

  • PlatinumMad

    Cute loli + Gigantic shinning bugs wrecking shit
    Awesome

  • Multi-Track Drifting

    How come no one said they wanted The Groose?!

  • Guest

    Giant bugs uuuuuugh
    As much as I like Agitha and her umbrella………..

  • Prinnydoom

    So far, aside from link, all of the other playable characters are female. This isn’t a big problem, I’m just wondering when link became a pimp.

    • kyrt

      Link ain’t the pimp, Zelda is.

    • MDH

      Circa Ocarina of Time.

      Zelda, Saria, Malon, Ruto, Nabooru, Impa…

      • Prinnydoom

        Dude gets around.

    • celery

      Just because there are lots of female characters doesn’t make this a harem game, nor does it make Link a “pimp.”

      • Prinnydoom

        At no point did I say this was a harem game. Simply pointing something out, by the way even if it were only link as the single male character that would not take anything away from it whatsoever. Lighten up.

        • celery

          I’m not saying it would “take anything away from it” if Link was the only male character. I’m actually really pleased at how many female characters are being included. I’m just tired of seeing people act like the female characters are only included because Link is “such a pimp.” They’re in the game to kick serious butt, not to be Link’s romance accessories.

          • Prinnydoom

            Hmmm Alright. You made a good argument there now I see what your getting at. And yeah Zelda and all the rest are looking really fun and interesting characters. Anyway I was only kidding man, I am sure they all have a reason for being there otherwise the story wouldn’t be any good would it.

          • celery

            Thanks! I didn’t mean to jump at you or anything, but I’ve seen people elsewhere actually think the reason why there are so many female characters is because it’s supposed to be “harem themed” and it’s like…wow, can’t those people enjoy the game for what it really is? It’s good to know you were only joking around, what with those other kinds of people actually thinking that way.

    • David García Abril

      Indeed.

      This starts to look like a harem game! lol

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Is there no way Zant could be a playable character? Come on Nintendo, Omega Force and Team Ninja, let us play the villains as well as the heroes.

    • Justin Graham

      Given the past history of the Warriors series, it would be more surprising if the villains weren’t playable. Players have been wrecking dudes as Char in the Gundam series and Raoh in Fist of the North Star for a long while now.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        *looks at Pirate Warriors* non it wouldn’t.

  • Chaos_Knight

    *Lana love intensifies*

  • fairysun

    Lana, hmmm, whom does she remind me of?

    • exrazer

      WHo?

      • Justin Graham

        Xiaoqiao from Dynasty Warriors. The resemblance is amusing, and I have to admit that it would be hysterical if Lana had Xiaoqiao’s ultra-perky personality.

        • exrazer

          I’ve never played the dynasty series. That’s probably why. Thanks for clearing that up!

    • Mastery

      Uh, Aqua?

  • Strawberry Starlet

    Ok. I’m freakishly pumped for this game.

  • Horse Boots

    I’m genuinely shocked no one has bothered to point out that Lana clearly isn’t Hylian. Notice how she doesn’t have the trademark pointed ears like every other Zelda character?

  • Brimfyre

    Pretty genius on Nintendo’s part. This pretty much guarantees that even if they don’t do another Hyrule Warriors, the characters made exclusively for this game will be featured in future DW games as cameo characters, but only on Nintendo consoles. So you will only get Lana in the Wii U version of Warriors Orochi 25 or whatever number they are on.

    Not a big deal in the West, but a pretty big boon for the Eastern market.

  • Kornelious

    So many waifu’s in this game! Lana is just to pretty to have to wait 3 months to play <3

    Also I see Zant will be a boss……Though i doubt it will be that awesome, 6-Part, crazy battle in Twilight Princess….But that's ok, at least we get to take him down twice now! :D

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    oh i hope we get trailers soon

  • Yan Zhao

    Dat Lana

  • http://www.spaghetti.com Kaisenex

    even though i beat twilight princess and look at agitha i think to myself “WHO THE FUCK IS AGITHA!?”

    • doubleO7

      She’s the bug-collection girl from Hyrule Castle Town.

      http://zeldawiki.org/images/3/39/AgithaScreen.png

      • Kayriss Wins

        So amazing that such a minor character in the Zelda universe is just playable all of the sudden, not that I’m complaining of course, I’d love to see her and Lana in Smash but I doubt that will happen.

  • Sentinel

    Wow, Lana is cute. Can’t wait to see how she plays.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    looks like this is based on the Twilight princess version of the world! awesome! …but Why is Zent back? Does this mean we get to kick his ass again?

    sidenote: Team ninja should get there hands on more Nintendo females and pretty them up some more

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I. Need. Trailers.

  • Learii

    they all end with A including Zelda

  • Pedro Rosas

    Why has no one cared to notice that Midna summons the Moon from Majora’s Mask? Could it be that the theory about the Moon being part of the twilight realm is true?

    • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

      I thought the theory isn’t that the Moon is from the TR, but that there are many ties between the TR and Termina, but most specifically with Majora’s Mask itself?

    • Kenneth Alabi

      its the hookshot that summons the moon, not midna herself. its a special ability for the item.

  • Ace Esper

    If the goddesses aren’t playable, I’ll totally be satisfied with just Lana <3

  • CirnoLakes

    Gasp!

    There’s Agitha?
    I love Agitha! I am loving this game more and more with every day.

    Now I just really hope for a few other characters like Aryll and Medli and this will be perfect!

  • Vash bane

    …she summoned a big green beetle…lol. this year I am so indecisive of what and which system , games to get >.<

    but I do love some warriors type games :p

  • Kotori Itsuka

    Aaaaaand I want a wii u
