GR: When Nintendo announces a new game in The Legend of Zelda franchise, fans typically go berserk and the experience begins to build excitement through release with mystery shrouding the overarching series narrative. Will we encounter new characters? Will the story veer off in an unexpected direction and surprise us with a big twist? More often than not these questions go unanswered until release day, until someone takes the game home and plays through the entire thing in one sitting. That doesn’t necessarily hold true with Hyrule Warriors.
