The cast of playable characters in Hyrule Warriors has increased by two. Nintendo has released a batch of screens featuring Lana and Agitha, a white witch and a parasol-toting child, respectively. And I’m just now noticing how the character lineup skews female – I think that’s cool. And the game is shaping up to be pretty good, too, according to our E3 Field Report.
With the addition of Lana and Agitha, the number of playable characters is now up to six, including Link, Zelda, Midna, and Impa.
From the game’s official synopsis:
“Cut down entire legions of enemies as Link™, Impa and other Legend of Zelda™ characters using over-the-top powerful Dynasty-Warriors-style moves. This tour de force through the beloved locales of Hyrule will have you battling the fiercest enemies in Zelda history. Think tactically and conquer missions in the most efficient way you can to save Hyrule!
The delicate balance of the Triforce has been disrupted, and Hyrule Kingdom is once again being torn apart by a dark power, this time lead by Sorceress Cia. Now it’s up to the legendary hero Link to face hordes of enemies and find the missing Princess Zelda™. Advance the story to unlock new playable characters with unique moves and weapon types. Collect Rupees and other useful items to upgrade weapons and craft badges, which you can use to bolster each warrior’s abilities. Then unleash the full power of your attacks with intense combos to clear wave after wave of Bokoblin hordes. You’ll have to get your gloves dirty to save Hyrule this time.”
Hyrule Warriors will be out on September 26 for the Wii U.
