*original* Famitsu have an article about the upcoming Hyrule Warriors that confirms the release date to be August 14th for Japan. This likely means we are going to see a lot of this come in the coming months, most likely at E3.

Link is gorgeous in this game. Also, there's a lot of text and stuff there.

Someone here can translate it? Also, Impa! And something I have never seen Before. Looks great.

I hope the new main zelda Wii U game have a art style similar to this.

So on NeoGAF, someone translated it, and Eiji Aonuma is supervising the title. This might turn out better than we think!

Looks coolio. Glad Impa is gonna get a playable outing here [her not being Sheik in SSB4 was a waste, imho].

Hopefully there's not much more to this plot, though [AKA it's a straightforward spin-off].

@DizzyCrow It'll be out in Sept or Oct for sure everywhere else.

I don't think that's the witch. Shia is most likely the woman on the top-left corner of the second page.

wait a second you guys, we are looking at this from the wrong angle, this article is intended for the Japanese audience, what Zelda(or Nintendo characters) are popular over there that you wouldn't nessecarily expect in the game? like Takamaru(his game is essentialy the Japanese cult game equivalent to Star Tropics, cept it got a Nintendo land game)

Most Zelda games sell bad in Japan, I wouldn't be surprised if this one surpasses the japaneses sales of all Zelda games in the past decade.

For a second I thought the Shard of Darkness rumor became true.

Still, shame those obvious prerendered cutscenes aren't running on real time. I believe the Wii U could easily have that fidelity, with just a bit of the dynamic lighting toned down.

The dude in the bottom right looks like the Poe Collector from OoT:

Also, Impa looks great. Really makes me wish she was playable in SSB instead of Sheik.

I really kind of want this to be tied to Skyward Sword, like, being the thing with Hylia's warrior, but oh well.

Looking at the neogaf thread, there are more details:

Download copy will be cheaper than the retail copy, but at around 10,000 yen, there's apparently a premium box to be for sale. (Prices aren't clear. Retail starts with a 7, Download with a 6 and Premium with a 10. I doubt it's a round number)


Hoooooooooo!

@Jack_Atlas

You realize that doesn't actually mean anything right? Similar to how Monolith worked on Skyward Sword.

It's being made by Omega Force. Team Ninja, if anything, is just helping with something like programming or graphics, character design, models, who knows? It's probably not anything that you'd be annoyed by.

More importantly, they weren't the main reason a certain other game was so hated, even though people pretend they are.

Any one else think Va for one of the subordinates might mean Vaati!? That pic someone mentioned looked like the Poe Collector sort of looks like if Vaati's eyeball/Wind Mage form and his Minish form were combined.

The Wii U is remarkably great at dynamic lighting. Nintendo's use of it in Pikmin and SM3DW was amazing. Zero frame rate loss is remarkable for system "just on par" with a 360. It's the sole reason why these games could never possibly run on the PS3/360 without the frame rate cratering into the teens.

MK8 has dynamic lighting in it as well and looks beautiful.

Omega force and...team ninja?

We don't know Ninja's involvement. They could just be designing characters or areas for all we know.
