Nintendo And Tecmo Koei Discuss How Hyrule Warriors Came To Be

This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine has a lot to share about Tecmo Koei and Nintendo’s upcoming collaboration, Hyrule Warriors. The game, known as “Zelda Musou” in Japan, is part of Tecmo Koei’s Warriors series of games, which employ the concept of a single character doing battle against dozens of enemies as once.

Did you word it that way on purpose?

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1640d ago

Yeah. lol. The rest would be something like "They made me sign a contract to use the Zelda IP with a DW-style game"

It's just a joke though, I love DW games, curious to see how this game works though since I found the allure of DW games being the character roster and how different each is.

KonsoruMasuta1640d ago

I'm getting this, but I have to wonder why Nintendo chose Zelda. Why not Fire Emblem or Xenoblade?

Kennytaur1640d ago

Perhaps because it's more well known?

SpiralTear1640d ago

Yeah, I think that's it.

It's also much more action-oriented than an RPG like Xenoblade or a tactics game like Fire Emblem. The combat in Wind Waker and Twilight Princess really turned up the stylish combat for the series, so there's a sense of spectacle in a fight featuring Link.

wonderfulmonkeyman1640d ago

That's why, yeah, but now that it's been mentioned, I think a Fire Emblem version of DW might actually be pretty cool!

Popularity dude. Zelda is a mega franchise.

Djkmilo1640d ago

does nintendo own the rights for these new characters created bu tecmo?

Geobros1640d ago

Hmmm...nice question!! I suppose we will never know the answer as nintendo is keeping safe informations like these.

Djkmilo1639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )

maybe like Geno from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars by square Enix.....hope not cause they look bad ass

This game looks like a turd

You need to stop talking to yourself while looking in mirrors, son.
Your mom is starting to get concerned.

King_of_Nothing1639d ago

I'm sorry you felt the need to attack me personally just because I don't necessarily like the idea of a great franchise being turned into the bland button mashing extravaganza that is Dynasty Warriors. Will it be more substantive that other iterations of Dynasty Warrior types games? I doubt it.

On a side note, I couldnt help but read your comment in the voice of Ron Swanson.

I'm convinced this is the origins of the Zelda story. I believe this is the very first Link, a simple Hyrule Knight. I believe we will see Hylia in this game.

vakarian751639d ago

Skyward Sword was the origin story with the very first Link it explains how the cycle continues because of what Link and Zelda did.

swice1639d ago

I believe this is the battle that they were talking about in Skyward Sword

**********SPOILERS*******SPOI LERS*******

Back when Hylia had human form.

********END SPOILERS******

I could be completely wrong, but it makes sense to me

********SPOILERS*********SPOIL ERS**********

I dont thik it is because hyrule didnt exist in skyward sword and the only human living down there was the old lady.
