Learn More About Lana And Agitha In Hyrule Warriors

By Ishaan . June 27, 2014 . 1:03pm

Nintendo have shared a few additional details about Lana and Agitha, two recently revealed playable characters in Hyrule Warriors, on their Wii U Facebook page. The information below is quoted directly from the page.

 

Lana:

Lana is sorceress with a deep knowledge of spells, monsters, and using spells on monsters. She’s very energetic and ready to give the war for Hyrule everything she’s got.

 

Lana and Cia have an unspoken hostility, even beyond the normal anger that war brings out. Lana is fiercely determined to put a halt to Cia’s plans, even at the cost of her own life or happiness.

 

Don’t underestimate Lana just because she’s usually so optimistic! Her natural athletic energy serves her well and allows her to quickly dive around her enemies and attack with her book of sorcery, which utilizes electrifying spells that her enemies never see coming.

 

While searching for the Gate of Souls, Lana takes a detour to rescue Agitha from a horde of monsters, ultimately recruiting her to the greater cause.

 

 

Agitha:

Agitha is the self-proclaimed princess of the insect kingdom, late of the Era of Twilight.

 

Agitha keeps a bright smile on at all times and looks at the world through a sweeter lens than her allies. But just because she’s so cheery doesn’t excuse her from battle!

 

Agitha’s parasol is her standard weapon, though her real strength resides in the bugs she summons forth in times of need, such as a giant beetle or a magnificent butterfly. Never underestimate the power of an insect princess!

 

 

Argorok:

Last seen as the boss of the City in the Sky from Twilight Princess, Argorok is a powerful Twilit Dragon enhanced by a Mirror Shard from the Mirror of Twilight.

 

His entire body is covered with hard armor, giving him extremely high defense. Surprisingly, he has a far higher bit of intelligence compared to the usual dragons that fly around Hyrule, shown mainly with his tactic of attacking from a vantage point high above the battlefield where normal soldiers can’t reach him.

 

 

Zant:

Zant is the usurper king of the Twilight Realm. Once Cia used the Gate of Souls to open a portal to his era, Zant was free to continue his shadowy misdeeds in Hyrule and beyond. He may look rather calm at a first glance, but his true nature is very frantic. He will go into fits of hysteria once he’s driven into a corner or doesn’t get his way.

 

Dual-wielding scimitars is Zant’s style, allowing him to swing wildly about or dash with intent toward his enemies. He also possesses a great deal of magical attacks, so approach him with extreme caution.

 

Hyrule Warriors will be available this September in North America.

    Opening portals to other Era’s? Is this Legend of Zelda Generations a la Sonic Generations? Is that this games plot? Is Cia just grabbing all the villains she can from multiple times in Hyrule? If so, it seems lazy but at the same time super f*cking cool!

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      Lazy, it isn’t. Given that Time Travel was a factor in most games of the series. For the most part. Going between realms is stupid easy for the denizens of Hyrule.

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        In most games? Time travel has only been in 3. Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Ages and Skyward. I didn’t say it wasn’t easy or anything I even said it was cool. Just feels a little saddening compared to an original story is all.

        • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

          Those three games are key titles. In any case, it isn’t lazy or a bad story. Story telling goes beyond reason. As it should. You are to learn and wonder as the story unfolds. And you only learned one side of the story: the front cover. The book hasn’t been opened yet.

        • raitouniverse

          Easy… sure, but did you expect any other explanation? I don’t care how they do it, I just want all the characters to be in the game. Heck, they could just all come out of nowhere with zero explanation and I wouldn’t care.

        • James Robert Thompson

          Majora’s Mask called! Wind Waker also had Hyrule Castle locked in a time vortex… and I vaguely remember some time shenanigans in one of the 4-swords games, though maybe I’m wrong there.

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Well to be fair, Majora’s Mask is more a ripple that loops rather than distinct time travel between periods. The same applies to Wind Waker, a ripple rather than time travel.

        • Pyrotek85

          Time travel is also a vital component in the story of Majora’s Mask, albeit only covering a span of three days over and over. Link also travels back in time for a single dungeon (Temple of Time) in Twilight Princess, since the one in the present no longer contains the mirror shard he needs.

    I can’t wait for this game! Lana looks like a beast!

  • AlphaSixNine

    Never played a Zelda game before, but will happily buy this for Lana. :)

  • mojack411

    It’s a damn shame that I won’t be able to play this at launch since I’ll be in Japan and won’t have access to my Wii U. I’m going to have so many games to play for it once I get back in January. Plus all of the 2015 releases that are coming (some of which I’m hoping for Feb).

  • J_Joestar

    So if the Gate of Souls can bring people from different eras together, i wonder if it will be a running gag how odd everything pulled from the WW era looks.

    • TheGioG

      Biggest change to their design might be the addition… of some sweet scarves. Serious note though, the cartoon-style animations for them are too neat NOT to use. I’d like to see the redesigns they might come up with for Medli and Makar too.

      • God

        Who made that image? That guy is going to heaven, if he sold his soul to videogames i’ll just give him a new one, that guy needs to be in heaven.

  • Kurai Buzzwagon

    I want to laugh at agitha summoning bugs but i cant considering in DW theres this guy who fights with a rug

  • Kornelious

    So it would seem the whole “Lana being the good version of Cia” isn’t to far off since they share some bitter connection……..Lana’s still hot though <3

    The Gate of Souls seems to be the big thing here seeing how it can pull people from different time lines, which just MIGHT explain the mix-mash of the generations of characters. If I had to take a guess, It either takes place in the era before Skyward Sword, or around the Twilight Princess era…..Though I can't be sure of either…..

    This just makes me more excited for the game though! i hope the amount of action can be complimented by a good story :)

    • David García Abril

      I’m calling it right now: Cia and Lana are twin sisters!

      That would explain why they look so much alike.

      • Kornelious

        Mayhaps they were once the same person but due to (Insert name of random war here) all those years ago, they were split into two people……Lana (Light) and Cia (Darkness)

        How’s that for a plot! :D

        • Slater

          It;s been confirmed that Hyrule Warriors takes place in a different dimension outside the main timeline

        • grayson gee

          I think it just stems to them being siblings if anything. As mentioned, Cia turns evil because she has the hots for Link and gets taken advantage of meaning that the split for those two would have to be very early in the game.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Lana and Agitha are too cutesy for my taste but Zant on the other hand is either scarily calm or absolutely ax crazy and over-the-top.

    • grayson gee

      The answer IS…both.

    • God

      Wasn’t Zant kind of a good guy in the end of Twilight Princess though?

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        No. I don’t know what that neck-breaking scene meant and I couldn’t bothered to know. Bad guys are more fun and less predictable than good guys anyway.

        • God

          I’m a moral relativist so i don’t really care if they are “good” or “bad”, but i remember him killing ganon… Doesn’t that make him “good”?

  • Jettythesunfish

    I wonder who would in a fight: Agitha or Wriggle Nightbug?

    • AuraGuyChris

      Agitha would.

    • God

      Deadpool.

  • TheGioG

    Sweet Hylia, this game is being overrun by the ladies of Hyrule and beyond! I could wait for my bros Ravio, Linebeck, and Beedle to show up to the fray, but for the moment, I’m enjoying the lovely lady-dominated cast of Hyrule Warriors.

    • Crazy_O

      I’m seriously considering buying a WiiU for this game… Yes I’m easy to please, sue me.

      • Kango234

        You aren’t alone.

    • Souffrir

      Inb4 Link gets Rule 63′d for this game.

    • Sentinel

      You are living the dream, Link.

    • David García Abril

      Looks like I’m not the only one who’s noticing that this game starts to look like a harem game. lol

      In any case, if Nintendo decides to turn Link into a girl, as many fans are asking for after the Zelda Wii U E3 2014 trailer, maybe we can get a “Hyrule Warriors 2″ with ONLY female characters! lol

    • Steven Higgins

      Don’t forget, Cia (though not playable as far as we know) has the hots for link too,

  • Thomaz Barros

    More like Hyrule WAIFUS AMRITEGUIZ?

  • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

    I might have bought this if they had used sexy Midna

  • Souffrir

    Nooooot sure how I feel about including a brand new generically animu-looking character in Zelda.

    Don’t get me wrong. I love (high quality) anime, but Lana looks like she comes straight out of a low-budget visual novel, and her character design just doesn’t fit with any established Zelda aesthetic. I wonder how hands on/off Nintendo is being on this project?

    • http://www.segalization.com/ Kuronoa

      She looks closer to a Fire Emblem character to me, probably because of the spell book as a weapon.
      I think if I have to pick an art style, she would fit in the best among the Oracle games.

  • Snorlaxation

    I Love how Lana looks almost conservative by comparison in the first image of her, mid battle pose, but then you see just how much skin she’s flashing.
    Not that I’m complaining ;)… probably.

    • BleuVII

      Well then *I* will complain. The Legend of Zelda franchise has always seemed elegant to me, not sexy. So far, all of the new characters have ramped up the sex appeal and completely turned down the classiness and elegance of this franchise.

      • Sentinel

        Um, Impa is still pretty much normal, and Zelda herself isn’t too different from what she showed in TP. Cia is the only one really putting on the sex appeal.

        So honestly, it’s fine.

      • Steven Higgins

        Key word, NEW characters. At least they aren’t whoring up pre-established ones, aside from giving Zelda (and maybe Impa?) a bigger bust, but they’re fully covered so NBD. Of course this only true for female characters, the new males (Fire Knight and Shadow Wizard) are fully covered, even their faces.

        • Shippoyasha

          It’s because there are hardly any Zelda male characters who are identifiable by their faces. It’s just the reality of the series.

          Also, just because they get a bit sexier doesn’t equal being ‘whoring up’ to me. That’s a bit of a hyperbole. They are still in the game to kick ass.

          • Steven Higgins

            And exposing more skin doesn’t equal getting sexier.You can still be sexy without having 3/4 of your chest exposed. And I’m talking about the male characters made specifically for this game, Xia’s underlings, Valga and Wizzro. If team ninja had had control over the designs of the new characters, they could have given easily recognizable faces.

          • Shippoyasha

            I think they are plenty sexy exposing skin. I don’t really care to make a politically correct statement out of it. Besides, all types of outfits are definitely sexy in this game. It’s just a Musou philosophy behind it all. I do agree, Team Ninja could have made very distinct character faces for males though.

      • Ixbran
      • Shippoyasha

        To be fair, most of the fairies in Zelda lore had a lot of risque designs. Some fairies pretty much were nearly nude as well. And Tecmo does excellent designs. People are being way too unfair calling it classless and smutty. Musou is FAR from that. I think it’s classy in its own way.

  • Steven Higgins

    Well, there goes the ‘Lana is the uncorrupted Cia” theory.
    And looks like they gave away a piece of the story unintentionally, how all these characters from different eras are appearing.

    And that Lana render kind of looks like a figurine, doesn’t it?

    • Time Sage

      My theory is they’re sisters or were “Co-workers” of sorts before Cia turns evil, perhaps belonging to the same order or some such. They have much in common deisign wise and their titles “The White Witch” and “The Black Witch” are pretty telling…

  • pressstart

    I think they need a brawler in there. The obvious choice is a goron, but I think Groose could fit that role too. His Musou attack can be a catapult that he magically warps in.

  • AuraGuyChris

    I suppose it’s time to say it now…

    Agitha 4 Smash.

  • Shippoyasha

    Lana? Lana?!? LANAAAAA!!!!!!

    • Mastery

      WHAT!?

      • Ehren Rivers

        …Daaaaaanjuh Zone.

  • Vash bane

    wait…opening worlds to different era’s?…this sounds…suspiciously familiar. I hope that the villains can be used too

  • Kevin Lima Ferreira

    I think Lana may be related to Nayru. She has blue hair and if we join their names it will be “Lanayru” which is also the name of a province in Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword and of the Light Spirit and the Deity Dragon of the same games.

    • TalesOfBS

      Did you notice the Nayru’s Love symbols on Lana’s shields?

      • Kevin Lima Ferreira

        I didn’t noticed! Nice observation. I’m almost sure they’re related now.

    • Göran Isacson

      Ooh, interesting point. While I personally was hoping for the Oracle-versions of the Goddesses, I guess creating characters vaguely affiliated with them is fine too.

      • Kevin Lima Ferreira

        Yes! I wonder if we will see more girls based on Din and Farore as well.

        • Göran Isacson

          True that. I just hope that they keep Din’s skin dark, if only because variety in character design is my God.

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

    Aw! I was hoping they’d finally released video footage! I’ve seen enough screenshots of Lana and Agitha to know it’s not enough. We need video footage! :(

    • Ben the Nerd

      We only gotta wait for three months… That’s not a long time in comparison with The Legend of Zelda Wii U.

  • JustJam

    Is Link the only male playable character here? This game is turning into a harem now..

    • KoRLumen

      It’s always kinda been a harem for Link.

      • Lumi

        But this game need female fanservice! The Musou series always need bishounen!

  • NeptuniasBeard

    I hope they make Ashei playable as well. She seems like a pretty awesome swordswoman

  • Göran Isacson

    Huuuuh. So judging from what this article is hinting at, Cia is opening up Gates to other eras- meaning that instead of this being some alternate universe where every game is just mashed together in one timeline ala Super Robot Wars, she’s actually opening up portals to the canon timeline and snatching people from other games?

    On the one hand I guess that’s neat, seeing as we then are playing with the originals… but I admit that I had my heart set on a full AU there for a moment. Oh well- I guess we will just have to wait until later to get some clarity in what the’re going for, and see how they handle the story.

    And hey, as long as I’m getting the seven sages from Ocarina Of Time playable in some fashion, I’ma be good with whatever they do with this game. Just make it so, nintendo and Koei Tecmo. Just make it so.

  • https://twitter.com/BurstZX Devin Isom

    All these female characters yet people feel the need to change link into a female? lol.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Link is in a harem now. Going to be cliche character in harem. you know… the oblivius one who acts like all the girls are his friends only

  • k.b.a.

    Wait is zant playable?!
    Also, shtop shipping.
