Hyrule Warriors isn't a spin-off, it's the official Zelda fan game - Tecmo Koei

MMGN: "Even more than a spin-off, we consider Hyrule Warriors a celebration title to celebrate the Zelda franchise. We as developers are not only developing the game, we’re also fans of the series and think of this as the official Zelda fan game," Tecmo Koei development producer Yosuke Hayashi told MMGN.

I liked his words, if he is a Zelda fan we will see a very nice game..

It is a spin-off, but people like it.
Don't try to pretend this is a real Zelda game with open-world, puzzles and non-dynasty warrior combat system.

No one is trying to say it isn't. What they are trying to say is they they are big fans of Zelda and will deliver what fans would expect, an excellent crossover game.

Stop being so butthurt that it's different. Typical haters, crying for change and then crying because when they get what they want they aren't happy. True Zelda fans are excited by this.

Oh I don't care. It's Zelda and it looks awesome!

the gameplay looks more like dynasty warriors than zelda. Visuals are nice, but I never got excited over a DW game... they are rather repetitive and dull.

Can't really get excited about this, it is a Dynasty Warriors game in a Zelda guise and will be as much fun as any DW game. If you like these games good. If you also like Zelda -> profit! But if you are like me and like Zelda a lot better than DW, than this is not the right game for celebrating ZELDA!!!

Just my opinion, coming from a huge Zelda fan. This game looks good, but its not what I am looking for. It is totally different from any Zelda game in terms of gameplay and everything except characters/visuals. Calling this NOT a spin-off is delusional imo.

The translation seems a bit iffy. I think they are saying that they see this game as more than just a spinoff.

Of course, it's the developers job to hype the game up.

They've said over and over again that Hyrule Warriors will not be like a Zelda game. Of course the gameplay looks more like DW than Zelda, Aonuma wanted it to play differently than a Zelda game.

I agree with you but at the same time I am holding off until we get some reviews through before I decide whether to pick it up or not. Id normally not bother with reviews but this game could definitely go either way.

The best part about this game is,you can replay it over and over again but each time with a different character.My first play trough will be with LINK.
