Hyrule Warriors Reaches Japan This Summer


Hyrule Warriors—or Zelda Musou, as it is called in Japan—is a Dynasty Warriors-styled game set in the Legend of Zelda universe. During the company’s financial results briefing earlier today, Tecmo Koei confirmed that the game will be available in Japan this Summer.


If you’re wondering why Tecmo Koei made that announcement and not Nintendo, it’s because Hyrule Warriors is only being published by Nintendo in the west—Tecmo Koei are handling publishing duties of the game in Japan, as previously noted.


Whether or not Hyrule Warriors will be released this Summer in the west as well has not yet been announced.
