Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja haven’t exactly set a great precedent for themselves working on Nintendo games, but maybe that’s a good thing. Despite Metroid: Other M’s critical beratement, Nintendo has brought back some of the same teams to work on its golden IP, The Legend of Zelda. Though not a proper Zelda entry, Hyrule Warriors brings the best elements of Dynasty Warriors and Musou in general, and packages them in a thick Zelda wrapping. The results are interesting to say the least, and wander into territory I’d call “fun” surprisingly often.
