Collect Rupees To Upgrade Weapons In Hyrule Warriors


Nintendo of America have shared a few additional details on Hyrule Warriors. As previously reported, one of the areas in the game is Hyrule Field, and Nintendo said in a press release it will constitute the very first stage of the game.


New characters with their own moves and weapons will be unlocked by advancing through the game’s story. Along the way, you’ll also collect Rupees and “other useful items” that can be used to upgrade weapons and craft badges that are used to bolster the abilities of each character.


Nintendo say that “most of the stages” in the game will bear a close resemblance to the Dynasty Warriors series, which sounds like there will be other stages that might be different. No details have been provided on this front, though.


Hyrule Warriors will be released in Japan on August 14th. The game doesn’t have a release date in North America and Europe yet.
