Hyrule Warriors Link

Nintendo will be revealing more of the Dynasty Warriors Zelda mash up

The Big N will be showing off the upcoming Wii U hack and slash spectacular, Hyrule Warriors in a new Nintendo Direct event to be held on August 4th.

For those keen to catch up with the game you can view the video on YouTube from 8pm Pacific Time (7am in the UK).

Hyrule Warriors is being developed by Techmo Koei who are bringing their Dynasty Warriors brand of epic hack and slash action to the Zelda universe. Speaking earlier on about the game Techmo Koei president Yoichi Erikawa noted that the joint popularity of both series is expected to lead to promise sales for the game. 

"In addition to our Warriors series fan base, Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda is also a very popular series with a large fan base, and I think it will become a great new market," said Erikawa. "Because of The Legend of Zelda's legion of fans overseas, we are aiming to sell more than one million copies worldwide."

Hyrule Warriors is set to launch exclusively on Wii U on September 19th in Europe and September 26th in North America.
