Team Ninja Is Working On Hyrule Warriors


This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shares a few more details on Hyrule Warriors that we weren’t privy to before. For starters, the game is being developed by both Omega Force (the studio behind most of the Warriors games) and Team Ninja.


Hisashi Koinuma and Yosuke Hayasahi are serving as producers on the game, with Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma supervising the project. Whether Team Ninja’s role is any greater than Hayashi’s involvement remains to be seen.


Details on the game’s story are scant, but it involves Zelda being kidnapped by a witch named Shea, following which Link sets off to rescue her.


Hyrule Warriors will be released in Japan on August 14th. We’ll have more details as they are made available.
