Play-Asia.com E3 Hype Train: Hyrule Warriors/Zelda Musou!

E3 is that time of year where gamers gush over all the new titles, graphics, gameplay, and generally nerd out to our absolute favorite thing in the world: video games. We at Play-Asia.com are no different, and throughout this week we will be stopping the Hype Train at all our favorite E3 stops. Get the conductor to punch your ticket, the Hype Train is leaving the station!


Wii U™

We have a release date for the US version! Septemeber 26th can't arrive soon enough.

Zelda Musou was first revealed in Famitsu with a release date in August, and now E3 gives the west what they are after - a US release date and even more information!

Unlike any other Zelda title to date Zelda Musou/Hyrule Warriors will be borrowing gameplay elements from the long-standing Dynasty Warriors franchise - allowing players to assume the role of Link like never before. Alongside the third-person perspective and hack 'n' slash gameplay Zelda Musou will feature Zelda 'Z-targeting' creating opportunities to dodge attacks and target enemy weak points. 

Expect to take control of more than just Link, reports claim we will be seeing quite a few playable characters including Impa, captain of the Royal Army. Equipping different weapons to each character will change the way they fight, everything from fast-paced light swords to heavier two-handed weapons. You will also be able to upgrade your weapons and characters. 

Fans of both Dynasty Warriors and The Legend of Zelda will have something new to look forward to: the dynamic battles of Dynasty Warriors enhanced by the intricate multi-stage boss patterns of Zelda.
