    Thank the Hyrulian Gods, I so called it they would add Darunia WITH a Hammer, also thanks for finally adding the other Races in Hyrule in this, it was about time

  • SakuStar Light

    XD i knew they were gonna censor Ruto those pixels and polygons aint polygons no more lol

    • Sentinel

      Well, I imagine they just used the same model from OoT3D.

      • SakuStar Light

        well the thing is they censored ruto and people were like why they do that….i mean look at back then how the great fairy looked and how ruto let it all hang out o-o i knew they were gonna try to play safe and do OoT 3D ruto and not N64 Ruto.

        • Tarkovsky

          Yea they could have done something similar to Darunia but we can’t have good things now because people just love to complain about things if you know what I mean. Pretty sure some people will still find some way to complain about Ruto.

          • SakuStar Light

            Pft you know they will. SO heres my ones i wanna play Link, Zelda, Lana, and Ruto so far.

          • SakuStar Light

            naw Darunia stomach pretty much does the covering its just that when boobs are in it, it sparks problems and controversy and people become easily offended so they find a way to allow her on but to cover her up to make her appropriate.

      • Suicunesol

        That doesn’t look like the model from OoT3D. It’s a new model.

        • Ruins72

          at all lol, I dunno what they’re talking about…

        • David García Abril

          I think he means the same character design, rather than the same model.

          Which it is.

          • SakuStar Light

            it is Nintendo censored her chest. Back then it was literately her boobs without the nips. Now that graphics have improved and awareness and being offended easily has rapidly grown. It seems like they just went the safe route and covered her chest much like the great fairy how she was wrapped up in leaves and vines they now changed it to cover her body due to the nudity.

  • Serge

    “Hey!” “Listen!”

    You forgot the most important character.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething


    • Rudy Soto

      God damn it Navi. You finally show up in a game where OoT Link is not even around…

  • Justin Graham

    I wonder if this Sheik is mean to be the Sheik incarnation of the Hyrule Warriors Zelda or the actual Ocarina of Time Sheik.

    • SakuStar Light

      looks to be incarnation of hyrule warriors.

  • CK Blaze

    I can’t. I can’t do this. This is too good.

  • FivePointedTheStar

    Wow, Princess Ruto has some very beautiful eyes. They’re so mesmerizing…

  • I can’t…stop…staring…O_O

    • 07thCrow

      I know! That cave looks amazing!

      • TrueDefault

        Look at all that background blur!

    • mockturtle

      Am I the only one who saw this picture and thought “LET IT GO! LET IT GO! AND I’LL RISE LIKE THE BREAK OF DAWWWWN!!”

      …Oh shit, I am?

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Bet she’d sing it better.

  • David García Abril

    Darunia with the Metagon Hammer…

    I F****** CALLED IT! lol

    • Sentinel

      That look in his eye….

      You might want to start running.

      • Nah. You just better have your Ocarina handy to distract him with some killer dance tunes! Because, as we all know, this guy will easily get distracted to get down ;)

        • David García Abril

          Well, there goes my productive day…


      • Ixbran

        they look like bedroom eyes to me, lol.

    • DeadLineDance

      YOU DID, BRO

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      you did! *high five*

  • David García Abril

    This Sheik looks incredibly androgynous.

    At first I thought s/he looked male because I saw the scans on my smartphone, and for some reason, his/her hips and waistline looked pretty narrow.

    However, now that I see the hi-res screenshots, I realize that’s not the case by a long shot. Plus, the face and hair look more feminine than ever.

    However, the way Zelda has managed to hide her huge (by Zelda standards) breasts in this game to the point of making them seem practically non-existent is impressive. O_o

    • Ixbran

      have you never herd of breast binding?

      • David García Abril

        Breast binding has its limits.

        Unless she’s using magic, she must be chocking!

        • Jadfish

          she did use magic in Ocarina of Time. She changed skin-tone, eye-colour and presumably breast size (if not gender all together)

          • David García Abril

            I always assumed she changed gender altogether in OOT. :P

            But that’s one of those Zelda debates that won’t end. EVER! lol

        • DyLaN

          Nah, its the hyperspace breast man.

          • Aci

            May I ask what anime is this?

          • DyLaN

            Nobunaga The Fool.

  • 07thCrow

    SO. MUCH. HYPE. (OwO)

  • Tonton Ramos

    The harp should been Shiek’s Final Smash in Super Smash Bros 4!

  • Tonton Ramos

    The harp should been Shiek’s Final Smash in Super Smash Bros 4!

  • Namuro

    Cool, I love how they redesigned Sheik’s armors to match that of Impa’s. Looks very good, indeed!

    Princess Ruto looks amazing. Her boo… I mean bre… I mean eyes look so beautiful… Her move-sets looks pretty fun to use, too. I wonder if she can summon Jabu-Jabu as an ultimate attack. LOL

    Darunia…looks kinda high on something. Welp, whatever gets him in the mood to smash all the enemies into pieces!

  • Armageddon

    Awesome characters specially sheik.Sheik an assassin right? coolest assassin I’ve seen in a while. Not only that but the guy doubles as a bard awesome combi.

    • dknighti

      Sheik’s a girl, it’s zelda’s alter ego…spoilers I guess

      • Armageddon

        *Jaw Drop*

        • lackofstyle

          wait you didnt…. how does that feel

      • 古戸ヱリカ

        Man, I hate when that happens. Oh well, I still have mah boy Samus.

  • iheartyou

    Son of a–

    Despite the lack of that newfangled Wiiwhatever system, I am preordering this. Dammit, Nintendo!

  • Kornelious

    Characters look cooler than i expected!

    Sheik is as expected but still cool, Didn’t expext Darunia to NEED a hammer, and Ruto looks cool with those swift Aqua blades…..though i am a little disappointed at the lack of natural high heels :P

  • Bunzi


    Says Darunia whilst he dances to Saria’s Song

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Whoa Sheik is killing with that Harp. Wonder if Sakurai would borrow so moves from this game.

  • Michael Cortorreal

    I bet Tecmo Koei’s Team Ninja felt right at home when they worked on Impa and Sheik.
    Looking at Shiek now, kinda wish it wasits own persona instead of an alter ego.

  • WickedKnightAlbel

    Darunia looks like a badass

  • zferolie

    Every time I think i can’t get more hyped for this game THEY DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS!

    Sheik looks pretty damn cool. Not sure if that is 2 different weapon styles (harp and daggers) or she uses both in her playstyle. Love her design, glad they didn’t make her look just like her smash version.

    Princess Ruto looks beautiful. I don’t get why people are upset that it looks like she has a dress… i think that makes her look better then just naked zora. She looks so elegant. So it seems she will be a pure water mage. I was hoping for Majora’s mask style of fighting. Perhaps if she gets a second fighting style that will be it. Still, it looked freaking beautiful and awesome. can’t wait to see it in motion. I hope they keep some of her tsun :p

    And Darunia looks freaking badass with the Megaton hammer. I knew/hoped he was going to get it, and it fits him so well. Seems like he will also have Goron style of attacks as well, which is great. He better dance too. I just love how expressive they made him.

    Siliconera, you forgot the other 2 bits shown(at least in the scan) 2 new weapon styles. Impa with a Halibird/Nagita, and Lana with a Deku Stick. Impas weapon seems to give her fire based attacks, and she can summon giant blades with it, and Lana’s seems to have a deku leaf and a little deku tree to assist as well. I wonder if this lowers the chance of Deku Butler or a different playable deku character.

    Also, Gohma is back with a new design. And you can use a bow item to aim for it’s eye.

  • Comic Con is upon us and IGN have played as Darunia! EDIT: Possible major story spoiler at 1:28.

    • zferolie

      WARNING! They mention a possible major story spoiler in that video!

      • Wow. I didn’t even notice. Thanks. ^_^;

        • zferolie

          it’s ok. IGN…. tends to spoil things so casually….

  • Yan Zhao

    I was expecting Darunia to pound mobs into the ground and toss them around like ragdolls with his fists, not pummel them with the Megaton hammer, lol.

    • zferolie

      He may still do that. Maybe with his hammer or as a different playstyle

  • Using Ruto. And I wish Sheik had a knife in smash bros. Also, it is strange to be attracted to Ruto?

    • zferolie

      not at all. She is pretty darn good looking. And not in the slutty way pure elegance and beauty

      • idrawrobots

        She doesn’t even wear clothes bro.

        • ShawnOtakuSomething

          lol its her skin

          • zferolie

            Yeah. It makes sense for an aquatic based humanoid to have evolved some way for the more sensitive parts of the body to be covered naturally

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            in the OOT3DS remake they gave her Skin flaps that Colver her boobs

          • zferolie

            Yeah i remember that. I think it looks better myself.

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            Zora was my favorite race in Zeldavurse :3 I think in twlight princess they made them more elegant looking

          • zferolie

            yeah, especially the queen. talk about pure elegance

          • idrawrobots

            What about in Link to the Past?

          • idrawrobots

            What doesn’t make sense is an aquatic creature evolving into a bird when the world is covered in water.

          • zferolie

            yeah I NEVER understood that. And the lived on death mountain now too. The gorons should have evolved!

          • Codi Schumacher

            Yeah and yet the Gorons while only what 5 left in the world of wind waker they get by unchanged how messed up is that if anyone should have turned to birds its them

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      no, friend…as a monster girl fan. Nope not wrong at all

      • zferolie

        Monster girl fans UNITE!

        • ShawnOtakuSomething


          • zferolie

            I assume you read Monster Musume? Any fan of monstergirls must read that manga

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            yes! , have you played Monster girl Quest?

          • zferolie

            I really need to. I just need to find it… I may have it on my external harddrive… if not where can I get them?

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            Well…I can’t post on here

          • zferolie

            ah true. I’ll find it somewhere.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Darunia I hope we can roll around like Goron Link in Major mask and spikes durst out. Man it would have been awesome if Ruto played like Zora Link.. ok I’ll stop my fandom for MM it to much…..I would most likely be using Ruto and Darunia :3 a lot. Nope just Ruto

    • zferolie

      well in the video below someone linked we see Darunia rolling a bit. And as for Ruto playing like Zora link, perhaps that could be a second playstyle? could work since they said there would be 52 playstyles.

    • zferolie
      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        that water looks like it hurts badly

  • kenshinx13

    idk how people say sheik looks like a guy in this one..if anything the only difference is that zeldas eyes are red (in this adaptation)… that being said i’ve never found sheik hot until now O.o

    • zferolie

      those are not the hips of a guy…

    • doubleO7

      Sheik’s eyes were always a different color than Zelda’s. That doesn’t mean anything either way.

    • SakuStar Light

      its been confirm by Nintendo Sheik is a girl. Sheik was a guy in Oot but they changed it to appeal to westerners as allot of westerners like the fact that Sheik would fit as a girl than a guy.

      Three new characters for Hyrule Warriors have been confirmed by Famitsu. … Sheik is female

  • zferolie

    Trailer just released for Hyrule warriors. Can only find it in non HD so far sadly

  • Ric Vazquez

    At last, another male characters besides Link XD

    • HaakonKL

      We have Link, Sheik and Darunia… That’s three already! :p

      • WondrousMoose

        Sheik is female.

        • HaakonKL

          Okay, well at least we have that Zelda guy.

  • zferolie

    and now the english HD trailer

    • David García Abril

      Wait a minute!

      Did they make Ruto a Water Bender?!

      • zferolie

        looks like it. I was expecting her to fight like Zora Link. A nice surprise

    • oh my god the end! xD

    • John Smith

      Oh dear God, we’re screwed.

    • mockturtle

      Wait, so does this confirm Zant and Ghirahim as playable characters? Seems like they wouldn’t list them with the other playable characters if they weren’t.

      Still, oh my god, this entire trailer is amazing.

  • Alexandra Cordes

    Is Saria too much to hope for? Probably… ;_;

    • SakuStar Light

      don’t say that just yet she may come in cause they have yet to finish announcing people. :D who knows since we can go to koroki forest.

  • Kamen Rider Rayz

    Oh God! Their elements really reminds me of some characters from Megaman Zero series which are Phantom, Leviathan and Fefnir! If Capcom successfully sold the Megaman IP to Nintendo… Here we go! I wouldn’t be surprise if they actually made a Megaman Warriors game!

    • Codi Schumacher

      Those sounds like good ideas let nintendo keep mega and give him some more games

  • SakuStar Light

    Ill say it again if i have to. If you hate this game you clearly are not willing to give new things a chance this game has allot more to offer than even a normal dynasty warrior. Pirate warriors doesn’t even come close to this game.

  • It’s a good game !
