Hyrule Warriors Brings Lana The White Witch Into The Spotlight

By Spencer . June 30, 2014 . 11:58pm

Hyrule Warriors has a brand new character Lana, the White Witch. She uses magic to create walls that can push enemies away, which looks like a good move for crowd control. Lana looks equally as agile since she can bounce off magic walls and ride a giant cube.

 

Hyrule Warriors comes out on August 14 in Japan. The Wii U game will reach Europe on September 20 and North America on September 26.

    Wow <3 I was thinking that she was just another cute face but she actually looks really fun to play as…..which makes her even more cute! <3

    And now to be given the subtitle "White Witch" other than a Ni No Kuni confusion, We sure are stretching the whole rivalry/sisterly/Dark Sidey thing she has with Cia aren't we :P

    And damn it TK! Stop taunting me with your Limited Edition that I can nver have :(

    • Daniel

      So tony robbins came to my city and i dont go for that stuff but the power of our positive thoughts combined shall make it so but for reference sake here are some of the more recent examples of when i tried to affect a situation positively using only my positiive thoughts and hopes (from sports admittedly but its important for you to get an idea on your expectations) sharks nhl, 49ers nfl,mexico world cup. Ill leave it to you to see how all those teams did this year

      • Kornelious

        Uhhhh……What???

        • Daniel

          Sorry im just bitter everyone of those teams was winning until they lost what im trying to say is have high hopes but your expectations should be very low concerning the super deluxe treasure box reaching the west personally i expect it to be download only a picture so we can see how cool the items are…

          • Daniel

            I was even rooting for the US today and it was Wondolowski of my hometown team who coulda won it in regulation but missed a golden opportunity hopefully my newfound pessimism shall yield greater results

      • Steven Higgins

        Tony Robins hungry.

    • Steven Higgins

      We don’t know if they have any kind of connection at all, their subtitles could just be references to the kind of magic they use. Look a Valga the Scorching Berzerker, he uses fire based melee attacks. And Wizzro the Magician of Darkness? You guessed it, dark magic. It’s possible that Lana and Cia were members of the same order or coven or whatever, but there’s no reason to think it goes beyond that.

      • Pyrotek85

        Plus she’s an original character and not canon to the Zelda series, though I’m hoping that’ll change if she’s popular enough, you never know.

  • Justin Graham

    Lana easily has some of the most unique attacks I’ve ever seen in a Warriors game. Wow!

    • 60hz

      in ANY action game. Omegaforce (they are doing this one right?) aint playin…

      • David García Abril

        Yeap, they’re doing this.

        Team Ninja is only giving them a hand with the programing and gameplay design (although I don’t know if that includes Lana’s move set in particular).

  • Armageddon

    I hope they put bayonetta next :D

  • Shippoyasha

    She looks kind of like a K-pop star there. Really nice elemental moves too. Kind of reminds me of the Onoki elemental ninjutsu in Naruto.

  • Holy Diver

    Dat Kiraboshi at the last attack!

  • Namuro

    Holy crap! Her move-sets are amazing! I thought she was just going to be waving her hands around like a typical sorceress, with sparks here and there. They weren’t kidding when they said that Lana is energetic.

    I have to admit that she didn’t really appeal to me (but it’s not like I hate her or anything. She simply didn’t “WOW” me), but after seeing her in action… Man, that changes everything!

    Gotta love how she bounces around like that. Can’t wait to play as her! Also, bring on Agitha’s video next, please!

  • TheGioG

    Are sliding box puzzles giving you problems like this handsome fella here?
    http://www.zeldainformer.com/images/articles/zelda003.jpg

    Well no more. Companions like Lana say “Box puzzles be damned!” Seriously, that fine lass was rolling a goddamn box on top of enemy hordes! If that kind of over-the-top action don’t speak volumes for justifying a Day 1 Purchase, I don’t know what does…

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      oh you and your box puzzles

  • Tiredman

    Looking forward to this myself. Already got it preordered along with Bayonetta 2 and Tales of Xillia 2. Lot of fun coming my way from August to October.

    • Superior Spider-Man

      my poor wallet is already suffering because of these late Summer/early Fall releases. TLoU Ps4, Xillia 2, Destiny, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Persona 4 Arena Ult, Persona 4 Q and GTA V PS4… I’m going to end up being a broke hermit these next few months

      • tirnoth

        Disgaea 4 Revisited for Vita :)

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

        Yeah, but late Summer/early Fall covers a couple of months. Here’s what October alone holds for me (in Australia): Super Smash Bros. for 3DS (4th), Dragon Age: Inquisition (9th, and I have the expensive edition pre-ordered, too), Borderlands: TPS (14th), Batman Arkham Knight (also 14th -_-) and Assassins Creed Unity (28th, some breathing room at least). Five games in October. Four of which are all within the first 2 weeks! Luckily, those 4 games come out only days before my birthday.

        • TrueDefault

          Isn’t that DA:I collector edition 200+ in EB?

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

            Yeah, $209 for the PC edition, but well worth it imo.

        • Superior Spider-Man

          arkham knight has been pushed back to next year.

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

            Last I checked, Steam said 14th October 2014. Now it says 2015. For once, I’m actually glad to be wrong. xD

    • Daniel

      Im waiting to preorder on the chance they give the west that treasure box but either way its day 1 for me
      The other two however ive already preordered

  • 60hz

  • Ban The Jackass

    My waifu <3

  • XypherCode

    She’s cute.

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

    Finally! Video footage of Lana! Now there’s only one thing left to say.

    • Warboss Aohd

      Praise Bruce, Blessed is he!

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    I am officially on the Lana train. This girl can kick ass and still has style! ;)

  • Kaetsu

    I think I just found my main.

  • Ronldbx6

    That was sick.

  • KanjiLikesBoys

    Not into her design but DAT CROWD CONTROL!!!

    • Mike Pureka

      Yeah; Fighting style looks cool, character design is creeeepy.

  • Land of Green Pasture

    so they said box couldn’t roll… well, they are wrong now

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    holy shit she kicks ass! and looks cute doing it 10/10 would main

  • Postnjam

    Wait, did Lana make the goddess cubes then? Similar looking.

  • Warboss Aohd

    i don’t like her character design in the slightest, but it being a warriors game, i can just play someone else so it doesn’t really matter.

  • Sentinel

    Cute design, awesome looking moveset.

    I think I know who I will be using a lot in this game.

  • ShadowDivz


    …..
    ……..So kawaii

  • Vash bane

    wii u sounding really good right now

    ahem

    I said nothing of the sorts D: “cough” she has a unique play style when it comes to mages..i mean she hops around like crazy and that wall run thing she did was freaking cool !:01 commence the eargasm (I always wanted to say that) xp

  • Raltrios

    Not very Zelda-like, huh? Not what I’d expect when going to grab a fantasy game, at any rate. She acts more like she belongs in an idol sim.

  • k.b.a.

    can we see villains of old before we get lolis and idols. If Agatha and this one can make it in I fully expect ganondorf yo round out the triforce trio, vaati and ghirahim. I mean this one has literally never even existed before.

    • Sentinel

      Ganondorf was confirmed at E3.

      • k.b.a.

        I recall hearing his laugh at the end of a demo o trailer. Do you have an interview or article? An image or video footage. I’m looking for something a little more solid if you know what I mean. I don’t take confirms until they are 100%

        • Ixbran

          Here you go hun, Ganondorf as shown at the end of the Hyrule Warriors trailer from E3.

          http://zeldawiki.org/images/thumb/2/2c/HW_Ganondorf.png/800px-HW_Ganondorf.png

          • k.b.a.

            Ty but im still waiting on that solid confirm, though a tease is always mice. Of course I all but expect him to be playable but I don’t like to set myself up anymore and knock myself down. Like Ridley In smash, Gabon having a sword or ever having his own moveset. But I’m also hoping for vaatim, skull kid and ghirahim and that everyone else announced is playable. Gotta set my expectations low as to not hurt myself.
