Nintendo Announces Hyrule Warriors for the Wii-U [Video]

Today Nintendo hosted another Nintendo Direct, which is something like an online news conference meant to speak directly to the fans and press alike for announcements. One of the more surprising reveals was the announcement of “Hyrule Warriors” (working title) which is a collaboration with Tecmo Koei, the team behind the long running Dynasty Warriors franchise, and it shows.

A Dynasty Warriors Legend of Zelda mash-up was probably one of the last things on the minds of Nintendo fans, but after looking at the trailer it definitely does look like a lot of potential fun. There’s no release date announced yet but the trend so far for the Big N would suggest that it’ll be a while which is a shame. The Wii-U is still struggling to sell units especially with the recent release of much more powerful machines from competitors. If Nintendo can keep the momentum going with more interesting out of the box ideas like Hyrule Warriors then there may still be a chance for a comeback.
