‘Hyrule Warriors’ News: Release Date, Further Details Announced At E3 2014
The latest Hyrule Warriors news is here from E3 2014, including the Hyrule Warriors release date. The Zelda franchise has been sorely lacking in originality and now it appears Nintendo is ready to unleash what we’ve been waiting for.
The Legend of Zelda began as a top-down adventure RPG that broke the rules we’d previously known for games of its genre, and it was family friendly. Link was a plucky young hero set on a quest to save the kingdom of Hyrule from what we thought was the first of many invasions. It wasn’t until Ocarina of Time that we learned Link has been saving the kingdom throughout his life, each time with the goal of liberating the titular princess.
E3 2014 has announced a few more details in the ongoing quest for Hyrule Warriors news. The release date being set for the Wii U game will be September 26, 2015, and hopefully it can make as much of an impact on us as Mario Kart 8 did. Could Hyrule Warriors inspire Nintendo’s next meme to follow the Luigi death stare?
If Nintendo pulls off a must-play followup to The Legend of Zelda on Wii U, they could be looking at a very nice comeback in 2014. It’s all in the details, and the legacy of Shigeru Miyamoto has proven to excel at the details.
For the second time ever (Capcom was the first to introduce multiplayer Zelda), Hyrule Warriors multiplayer gameplay will feature a variety of characters you can play as. Link is now joined by Impa, Midna, and Zelda herself, as well as possibly many others. This could be a welcome or alienating aspect to the Hyrule Warriors news.

Multiplayer Zelda could bring the franchise back after years of HD remakes and recycled gameplay with maybe a new idea thrown in to fool us into thinking it was something different. What the Hyrule Warriors E3 2014 trailer showed us revealed Link and his allies fighting armies in much more dynamic action style. It appears to be taking a page out of the MOBA genre and giving us an over the top battle experience with bosses appearing almost randomly. The variety of attacks you have at your disposal could easily make this the most fun you’ve had on the Nintendo Wii U in months.
This round of Hyrule Warriors news looks promising, though it’s not clear if the general public will accept the changes, despite being brought forth by gamers who grew up playing the original.
Does the Hyrule Warriors E3 2014 trailer get you excited to try it out this Fall?
