Hyrule Warriors made an official appearance at Nintendo’s E3 booth this week and we now have some footage of it in action thanks to WiiU daily, which did some off-screen recording while running around as Zelda, slaying foes left and right.
If you’ve ever played a game of Dynasty Warriors or its derivatives, you’ll have a rough idea of how thhe game works. You run around, slaying – Zelda themed – enemies by the hundreds, with special abilities cutting through tens of them at a time, only really finding a challenge when facing off against enemy leader characters.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MhnjzoyhKo’]
In this video we see Zelda surrounded by enemies that typically don’t put up any sort of fight, even the generals didn’t seem to slow her down, though presumably this is a very early stage of the game. There’s a minimap showing the invading enemies and some impressive combos and special moves and the game is certainly pretty, though not exactly stunning.
I am really pleased to see that there isn’t any of that typical Dynasty Warriors fade in/out of enemy charaters. Every is displayed from a distance and up close without much pop in at all.
Where it gets really exciting, is that the game turns into a fast paced version of Monster Hunter half way through the video, as Zelda is forced to take on King Dodongo. It rolls into the castle and becomes a major problem, showing that we could see some very different enemies in Hyrule Warriors, of vastly different sizes.

KitGuru Says: I wasn’t that fussed with this before seeing this footage, but this actually looks pretty damn fun. I’ve enjoyed Dynasty Warriors games in the past, so I don’t see why I couldn’t get on board with this.
